Contact Information?[edit]

If anyone has information on where to send mail to Edwards I would be interested in seeing it posted. My politics differ somewhat from Edwards but I can't help but feel for the man. I think he has a real treasure in the daughter who stood by him in spite of his rather nasty indiscretions. I would like to send him a consoling letter if anyone knows how to send him mail.Will3935 (talk) 22:30, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Born Johnny[edit]

This appears to have never been supported but there is one thread on it in the archives. In any case if "Johnny" is what's on the birth record and "John" was the result of a legal name change, this should be made clear. Lycurgus (talk) 17:13, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Edit request from Everettsteele, 3 June 2011[edit]

Under 'Indictments' please change "planed" in the sentence 'planed to pursue criminal charges against Edwards' to "planned" as this is a spelling error.

== Mug shot == John Edwards is gulity and sentenced

Looks like this photo http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-pn-edwards-mug-20110615,0,7349268.story is public domain (from sherrif's office) so I think we should consider including it. 98.118.62.140 (talk) 21:27, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

== Under the picture of John.. == is a check.

. please correct the year of Elizabeth's birth... it was not 1977.. it was 1949 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.15.237.92 (talk) 00:18, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

That's the years they were married, not date of birth.--Cube lurker (talk) 00:20, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Edit request from , 16 November 2011[edit]

News item has said that on Nov. 15, start of trial was set for Jan. 30 (2012). (I.e., request is for the addition of this newly-arrived information.)

I looked up a North Carolina source: http://www.wral.com/news/political/story/10365950/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.63.16.82 (talk) 16:01, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

128.63.16.82 (talk) 20:49, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. — Bility (talk) 00:44, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
{ESp|d}} I've added the news source you (IP) provided and the info to the article. Qwyrxian (talk) 05:31, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Extramarital affair - National Enquirer reports[edit]

1. Just wondering if anyone knows if National Enquirer is a reliable source for WP?

2. Is it particularly notable if Edwards asks his ex-mistress and mother of his child to move in with him at this point? Facts707 (talk) 02:40, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

National Enquirer is generally not considered a reliable source here, despite the fact that sometimes they end up being right. We try to wait for better sourcing - ones that are not tainted by accepting payments for tips and interviews, for example. As for the second question, first would need reliable sources, then we'd consider it. We're not the news - there is no rush to publish everything that comes down the pike.

Wikipedia summary on Google search page needs to list all 5 of John Edwards' children, not just 4.[edit]

While the Wikipedia page correctly lists the names of the 5 children sired by John Edwards, the Wikipedia page that comes up on the Google page when searching for news about John Edwards does not list Frances Quinn Hunter as his 5th child. Is there any way to correct this, please? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.226.8.226 (talk) 19:14, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

Should Article Be Split?[edit]

Should the Affair/Investigate/Indictement/Trial be split off to a seperate article? The main article is 70kb. Also, the affair and resulting trial are notable in their own right. Can some one at least add

while the matter is being discussed? 214.13.69.132 (talk) 06:37, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Incorrect date on Trial[edit]

Edit Request: On the last paragraph talking about the trial, the date say "July 2012", since it's only June of 2012, I think that needs to be changed. I don't know the exact date of the occurrence. Scott Reed (talk) 18:15, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

I see that. Thank you. I corrected the dates and the citation to be correct, not just a comment. -- JoannaSerah (talk) 19:53, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
