As John Edwards’s defense team began presenting its case on Monday, they announced the former presidential candidate’s 30-year-old daughter will testify this week on her father’s behalf—possibly as early as Tuesday. It is still undecided whether John Edwards will take the stand. While it’s unknown what Cate Edwards, a lawyer, will say that could help her father’s case, she could testify about her late mother, Elizabeth, and her father’s personal reasons for covering up his affair with Rielle Hunter. On Monday Edwards’s chief financial officer testified that Edwards had nothing to do with the financial reports filed to the Federal Elections Commission.
