John Edwards' failed presidential campaign now has little time to pay back $2.1 million, in less than a month, to the U.S. Treasury.
Edwards needs to pay back $2.1 million in public matching funds in less than one month, according to a decision that was made by the Federal Election Commission on Friday. The decision upheld the panel’s earlier finding.
The commission and lawyers representing Edwards batted aside one another. Lawyers for Edwards say that the money in question was used properly during his campaign, and that the commission were having problems within themselves, according to Business Week. As a result of the problems, an incorrect finding showed Edwards received more cash than he was suppose to get.
According to MSNBC, the commissioners wrote in a document that none of the arguments has any merit. Edwards’ lawyers said that they do not have any plans to contest the decision made by the committee.
Patricia Fiori, one of Edwards’ lawyers, said that the committee disagrees with the outcome but the matter will not be pursued any further.
According to the Daily Mail, Edwards may be planning on having another child with Rielle Hunter, the woman who destroyed Edwards’ marriage.
Hunter apparently is hoping she will be pregnant before Edwards’s trial takes place in April.
Edwards goes to trial in April and he could end up going to jail for up to 30 years.
