John Edwards' Former Aides Testify In Probe Of Two-Time Presidential Candidate In Federal Court

Posted: Updated:

RALEIGH, N.C. — Two former aides for John Edwards have made appearances at a federal courthouse where a grand jury is investigating the two-time presidential candidate.

Former spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri spent about an hour at the Raleigh courthouse Thursday. Former deputy campaign manager Jonathan Prince spent four hours. Neither commented when leaving.

A grand jury has been looking into Edwards' campaign finances for more than a year, bringing in former aides and mistress Rielle Hunter for testimony.

The former North Carolina senator has denied wrongdoing. His attorney has said new subpoenas were issued.

Palmieri also was a confidant of Elizabeth Edwards, the candidate's ex-wife. Prince was a close aide to Edwards for both presidential campaigns.
