“Regular folks vs. John Edwards; A jury is likely to weigh what Edwards did in the Rielle Hunter affair much more harshly than the Federal Election Commission”

Great Stephen Weissman oped in the LA Times. It concludes: “Whatever the verdict, the Edwards trial will highlight the need to remedy weak FEC campaign law enforcement, which now only encourages campaigns to push the envelope. There are long-standing proposals by campaign finance groups to revamp the commission. For these to move forward, however, leaders would have to lead. Sadly, no presidential candidate and no congressional heavyweight, Democratic or Republican, is even talking about this.”
