Former Edwards aide says he was intimidated by donors

Greensboro, North Carolina (CNN) - A former campaign aide for John Edwards said in court Friday that he had been intimidated in his dealings with the former senator and two high-priced donors.

"I was scared for my life," Andrew Young testified in U.S. District Court in Greensboro, North Carolina. "I was up against two billionaires and a millionaire. I was scared. It was bizarre."

    Don't worry Andrew. Edwards is an ambulance chasing Democrat thief. The only thing you should fear is your pocket being picked.

    Young could have walked away at any given time but to take the money, spend the money, hold on to videos for ransom and then write a book to make money sure doesn't sound like intimidation.

    Yes, the pride of the Democrat Party, John Edwards. This sleazy dirtbag could have been President or Vice President. Lies to everybody, breaks laws, misappropriates money to conceal his zipper problem. Soon we'll add him to the very long list of Democrat Party INMATES.

  7. The REAL Truth.. (not the imposter)

    @Nothing – ranks right up there with Newt, Tom DeLay, McConnell, Breitbart and Dubya. At least he didn't rat out on one of his own CIA operatives for political reasons. In my book that's treason.
