Verdict on WhoWhatWhy: See “Edwards Case”

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Now that the jury has decided that the prosecution of John Edwards was unjustified, we hope you don’t mind if we say…..We told you so.

At WhoWhatWhy, we refused to join the media majority in shamelessly trolling through the salacious details of the sexual side of the matter.

At WhoWhatWhy, we focused on the substance: what, really, was the crime? And was the proposed punishment appropriate? We also noted and explored a pattern in which politicians of a particular type and point of view seem to disproportionately get targeted for their private behavior.
