Greensboro, North Carolina (CNN) - A friend and adviser to John Edwards testified Tuesday that the former presidential candidate appeared surprised to learn an elderly heiress sent money that ended up going to his mistress and another aide.
John Moylan, on the second day of defense testimony, said he believes Edwards learned about the checks from Rachel "Bunny" Mellon to campaign staffer Andrew Young for the first time in August 2008.
Greensboro, North Carolina (CNN) - A former adviser recalled Friday how he urged John Edwards to steer clear of a campaign videographer, later revealed to be his mistress. But the then-presidential candidate refused, Peter Scher said in court.
He said that "I should back off, he didn't need a baby sitter," Scher testified during Edwards' felony trial.
