First, Saint Elizabeth. Elizabeth Edwards attacked Hillary and asserted her marriage was happier than Hillary’s. Bankruptcy lawyer Elizabeth Edwards participated in the John Edwards Bankruptcy vote scam of “I was wrong”. You might not know about that bankruptcy vote scam which we wrote about on June 7, 2007 in The Long Good-bye. Here are a few excerpts of what we wrote:
Now, let’s ignore the singular accomplishment of John Edwards in the Senate, his co-sponsorship, not mere voting for, the Iraq resolution…. About that vote John Edwards said “I was wrong.”
Let’s look instead at his Senate record on poverty — Edwards’ alleged signature issue. Edwards voted for the Bankruptcy Bill which badly harmed the poor and the struggling middle class. Let’s read Edwards’ echo statement rejecting once again his own history, this time on the misguided Bankruptcy Bill.[snip]
“Like a lot of Democrats, I voted for a bankruptcy reform bill before. I can’t say it more simply than this: I was wrong.”
John Edwards did not need to learn anything, not a single solitary thing about “bankruptcy on the campaign trail” to know the horror of a Bankruptcy Bill he voted for. All John Edwards had to do was consult his Bankruptcy lawyer wife. It’s time they had another talk, about the bankruptcy of his campaign.
Two “I was wrong”s, don’t make a right. Elizabeth Edwards is now exposed as a scam artist. As bad as John Edwards is, Elizabeth is just as rotten.
Bankruptcy lawyer scam artist Elizabeth Edwards has a great deal to answer for. Indeed, Elizabeth and her husband are a cancer on the body politic.
This dynamic duo of dung, like Barack Obama and his mob, are shameless. We won’t get into the poisonous acts of the duo and their fake public pretenses about not knowing whom to endorse after their wretched campaign of lies was rejected by the voters. There is simply too much filth about this duo and their selfishness and rants against their own campaign workers and the ceaseless vulgarity of their cupidity.
We will not explore the fecal details of John and Elizabeth Edwards. Today, we want to focus on how scam artists like this disgusting duo are relentless and know how to work a scam.
Very recently, a Left Talker Polanski loving defense lawyer, the one who chortled about the arrest of Sarah Palin’s daughter’s baby’s father’s mother, and used that distant arrest as somehow something Sarah Palin was culpable for; the same Left Talker defense lawyer, who celebrated what she thought was sure to be a massive divorce and then indictment on corruption charges for theft of construction materials by Sarah Palin when Sarah Palin resigned as governor; that low-life, reality show watching Left Talker defense lawyer bemoaned the publicity given to accusations against Elizabeth Edwards.
The Left Talker is incensed because the truth emerges about the cancerous scum called John and Elizabeth Edwards.
The Left Talker in her hapless defense (pity her clients), opened up new doors in the cancerous scam which are John and Elizabeth Edwards. The reality show addict Left Talker clued us in on something we did not know: the day Elizabeth called the police – on John.
Here is the story no Americans read about when it occurred – October 10, 2008! “How To Work A Scam” – Elizabeth Edwards style. Here’s the story:
The Orange County sheriff’s office released today a copy of a report alleging a “domestic between spouses and larceny of wallet” on Oct. 10, 2008, at the home of John and Elizabeth Edwards.
In the report, Elizabeth Edwards describes how John Edwards came to the home to eat dinner with his children after a sports event, Mark Johnson reports. She told him they were dining with the babysitter, and he had no business being there, according to the report.
Moments later, John Edwards challenged his wife’s comment and said the house was his, as well. Then Elizabeth Edwards said she saw her husband take her lime green wallet, which contained $320, credit cards and a Motorola Razr phone. John Edwards went down to “the barn,” an adjoining structure that includes a full-size basketball court, for several minutes before beginning to leave, according to the report.
“As Mr. Edwards was leaving, he was asked to give the wallet back,” the report said, “and he advised that he did not have it.”
The report ends by giving Edwards – a former U.S. Senator, former presidential candidate and former Democratic vice presidential nominee – a new title: “suspect.”
UPDATE FOR THE CONSPIRACY THEORISTS: The report had been kept secret since it was filed more than a year ago at the request of Elizabeth Edwards, the sheriff said. He cited a state statute that allows incident reports to be kept confidential temporarily in cases where the documents’ release could endanger the victims physical or mental well-being.
The Left Talker conveniently posted the police report.
Students of scams take note – this police incident took place on October 10, 2008. Why did Elizabeth Edwards want to keep this police report secret? Easy answer – she had a book to sell, another scam to ply.
Scam artist Elizabeth Edwards had a book to sell. The book’s title was “Resilience”. Elizabeth Edwards is a resilient scam artist. Elizabeth went on Oprah, Elizabeth did many interviews – never once did she mention her marriage was over and her whole existence at that point was a scam. That is what scam artists do. Other than at Big Pink no one will dare call Elizabeth Edwards what she is – a cancerous resilient scam artist.
All during 2009, Elizabeth Edwards scored plaudits from the gullible. The L.A. Times book review commiserated in her misery:
That affair was, Elizabeth Edwards writes, a gut-wrenching addition to a life marked by tragedies sudden and inevitable, from the 1996 car-crash death of Wade, her oldest child, to the slow physical disintegration of her beloved parents; her discovery at a young age that her mother believed her father had had an affair, and — finally — the cancer that she has been battling since 2004 and that she expects will kill her.
Despite initial media accounts of “Resilience” (“After I cried and screamed, I went to the bathroom and threw up”), and the much-talked about Oprah interview Thursday, Edwards’ battle with cancer and Wade’s death dominate the new book, even more so than her 2006 memoir, “Saving Graces: Finding Solace and Strength From Friends and Strangers.” “Resilience,” in fact, can be viewed as a coda to “Saving Graces” — a meditation on her life after learning about her husband’s affair and the resurgence of her cancer.
Rubbish, all of it. Elizabeth Edwards traded on her cancer and her son’s death and all the miseries of her life. All throughout 2009 Elizabeth Edwards sold books and remained silent on the police report which only in 2010 has seen the light of day.
Jane Podesta, in an article which was attacked, proved not to be among the Edwards gullible:
Edwards can’t have it both ways — insisting that she won’t sit back as the passive political wife and disappear, while cashing in on her family’s personal crisis. Where were the fawning political handlers who once surrounded this couple, when she agreed to head off to promote this book? And what happened to the old Elizabeth Edwards who wasn’t afraid to answer any question hurled at her on the campaign trail?
Watching Elizabeth Edwards in freefall — pandering to chirpy Oprah and CNN’s reptilian Larry King — has been especially painful for me as a reporter who covered her closely for years. I interviewed Elizabeth Edwards shortly after she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and in those days she waxed poetic, quoting Emily Dickenson: “Hope is the thing with feathers/That perches in the soul.” Edwards added,” I’ve thought about that a lot lately. It’s just a part of our nature to hope.” [snip]
Flash forward nearly five years and we find Elizabeth making the rounds promoting a shallow book that only briefly touches on her husband’s humiliating affair. From the voyeuristic TV interviews exploiting Edwards, viewers might imagine the book is a riveting look inside a troubled marriage. Turns out this is largely a rewrite of her earlier memoir — Saving Graces — but this time she mentions her poor mother’s fear that her Navy pilot father had an affair at the Willard Hotel — something that haunted Elizabeth throughout her life. She relives the awful tragedy of losing her oldest son, Wade, a wound that never healed.

“How To Work A Scam”. Elizabeth Edwards shows us that scam artists want to keep one step ahead of the law and love secrecy. One year’s delay of the truth is a gold mine for scam artists.
Alexi Giannoulias knows these lessons well. Here is Alexi Giannoulias’ latest scam straight out of the Obama and Elizabeth playbook.
Illinois Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias (D) held a press conference to discuss his family’s banking problems, but his refusal to answer a question whether he held responsibility for the bank’s struggles led to a tough AP story today: [snip
Giannoulias looks like he’s playing the political equivalent of the prevent defense in football – he’s led in the Democratic primary throughout the race because of his money, support from leading Democratic officials, and is hoping to hold onto that narrowing lead over David Hoffman with the primary just several days away.
Here is the story:
Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias refused to provide details Thursday about whether his decisions contributed to his family bank’s financial problems, saying five days before the election that those questions can wait for another time.
“If I’m fortunate enough to make it out of the primary, we can have that conversation,” the Chicago Democrat told reporters.
Giannoulias, like Obama, like John and Elizabeth Edwards wants to answer questions, later. Later is too late. Giannoulias is ducking questions so he will say he is not ducking questions.
In a follow-up interview with The Associated Press, Giannoulias denied he was ducking questions.
He said that because he no longer works for the bank, he doesn’t have detailed information about its financial problems and what caused them. He also said he will have no role in family decisions about how to address the bank’s problems.
The Giannoulias family owns Broadway Bank, and he was a senior loan officer there before becoming Illinois treasurer three years ago.
Now the bank is in trouble. It has promised state and federal regulators that it will raise new capital, sell troubled assets and improve management. The bank must raise $50 million or more within 90 days.
When Giannoulias wins the Democratic Primary all the questions about Obama and Rezko and “Jaws” and the Broadway Bank will still not be asked. But maybe, they might:
But his rivals in the Democratic primary say Broadway is in trouble because of bad loans and putting too much money into a vulnerable real estate market. They argue Giannoulias, as a loan officer, bears some of the responsibility and is now trying to avoid blame.
“The reason that this Broadway Bank story and revelation is of such significance now is because it goes to the heart of matters of job performance and character,” Senate candidate David Hoffman said at a news conference.
“Job performance and character” sounds to us like Barack Obama in Chicago who also did not want questions asked. If asked Obama would not answer. That chicken is now getting plucked:
Giannoulias denies his loan decisions contributed to the bank’s problems, calling it a silly political attack. But he wouldn’t discuss the issue in detail or provide any documents to support his position.
The Giannoulias family has taken $86 million in dividends and other financial benefits from the bank in recent years. Giannoulias said most of that was done to pay taxes and settle estate matters after his father’s death.
But he again declined to provide details or to say whether his family will put money back into the bank.
