John Edwards again asks for trial delay, cites medical issue

(CNN) - Attorneys for John Edwards asked again Thursday to delay his criminal trial, saying the former presidential candidate and U.S. senator has an unspecified medical issue.

In June, the Justice Department charged Edwards with conspiracy, issuing false statements and violating campaign contribution laws. He has pleaded not guilty.

    His medical condition is "unspecified". Could it be male pattern baldness or maybe even a case of dandruff?
