Earlier this week, former North Carolina senator and Democratic vice presidential nominee John Edwards' mug shot was released. A two-time presidential hopeful, Edwards pleaded not guilty earlier this month to federal charges that he solicited and used campaign contributions to hide his mistress and their baby. Among the charges for which he has been indicted include four counts of illegal campaign contributions, conspiracy and making false statements in connection with a cover-up of his extramarital affair.
The shots above, however, are nowhere near as interesting as the "John Edwards Mug Shot Outtakes" (below).
