GREENSBORO, N.C. — Some of the jurors from the John Edwards case that ended in mistrial say there just wasn’t enough evidence to convict him of campaign finance violations.
Six of the jurors went on network talk shows today, a day after acquitting the former presidential candidate on one count and failing to reach a verdict on five other charges.
Prosecutors had charged Edwards with misusing campaign contributions from two wealthy donors to hide his pregnant mistress while he ran for the White House.
Cindy Aquaro said on NBC’s “Today” show that she thought Edwards was guilty of at least some counts. But she said he was smart enough to hide it and they couldn’t find proof.
Another juror, Theresa Fuller, told ABC’s “Good Morning America” the evidence just wasn’t there.
