John Edwards' Trial Kicks Off With Witness Revelation

John Edwards' trial for campaign finance violations kicked off in North Carolina on Monday with prosecutors painting a picture of a man who would stop at anything in his bid to become president.

The Associated Press reports that the biggest revelation from Day One of proceedings was that former Edwards aide Andrew Young—expected to be the government's chief witness—reached out to other witnesses in the case ahead of the trial to ask about what they planned to say on the stand, a possible violation of federal law.

Edwards faces six counts of campaign finance violations for allegedly using $1 million from two wealthy donors to keep the affair that ultimately derailed his political career a secret during his 2008 presidential campaign.
