John Edwards

Former North Carolina senator, vice presidential candidate and White House hopeful John Edwards always had a reputation for being vain, particularly when it came to his mane, which he reportedly at least once spent $400 to groom. Perhaps that’s why he thought he could actually get away with not only having a campaign-trail affair as his wife dealt with terminal cancer while he was running for president, but have a baby with his mistress, too. Now he could find himself serving a prison term if he is convicted of improperly using campaign contributions to cover up the affair.
