Prosecutors wrap case in Edwards corruption trial

Greensboro, North Carolina (CNN) - Prosecutors wrapped up their case in the John Edwards corruption trial Thursday, detailing hundreds of thousands of dollars in expenses used by his former mistress, whose concealment during Edwards' failed presidential run remains at the heart of the scandal.

They say the expenses ranged from luxury hotels to private jets to high-priced rental homes largely paid for by Fred Baron, a now-deceased Texas lawyer who was Edwards' finance chairman.

    How much is going on now with all the Citizens United (Ctizens Un-Tied) ruling. Matters not - the republican activist SC doesn't care - so In Your Eye Little People. Only corporations matter.
