Edwards Sought Cash From Heiress: Report

John Edwards’ mess keeps getting deeper: The former presidential candidate reportedly requested millions of dollars from the heiress whose financial support has been at the heart of an ongoing federal case—just weeks before the Feds came down with six indictments against him. Rachel “Bunny” Mellon, a banking heiress, reportedly was asked by Edwards for millions of dollars for unknown reasons, sources tell ABC News. Edwards’ legal trouble stems from allegations that Mellon’s illegal contributions helped him care for his mistress, Rielle Hunter.
