The wife of a former aide to John Edwards rebuffed questions Tuesday about whether she has any incentive to lie to hurt the former presidential candidate.
The wife of an ex-aide to John Edwards testified Monday the former presidential candidate told her over the phone that it was legal to take money from a wealthy donor to take care of Edwards' mistress.
Former aide Andrew Young was the first witness called by federal prosecutors Monday following opening statements in the criminal trial of former presidential candidate John Edwards.
The sex tape of John Edwards and his mistress is headed to the shredder, but a long list of criminal charges still hangs over the former presidential candidate over the extramarital affair that ended his political career.
Both Youngs have testified at Mr. Edwards' campaign finance corruption trial that the candidate asked Mr. Young to issue a statement falsely claiming paternity of the child Mr. Edwards fathered with his mistress, Rielle Hunter.
She said she didn't know whether her husband ever took the medication while consuming alcohol or the potential side effects.
