CHAPEL HILL, N.C., March 1 (UPI) — Former 2008 Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards of North Carolina may face a federal indictment connected to campaign finances, observers said.

Edwards may have to answer to a federal grand jury’s indictment that he knew some of the millions of dollars of campaign funds was being used to support Rielle Hunter, the videographer for Edwards’s campaign, with whom he had an affair and the couple’s daughter, The New York Times reported Monday.

People who have been subpoenaed and other observers said campaign accounts and the records of a non-profit organization with ties to Edwards have been scrutinized by George Holding, the U.S. attorney in Raleigh, a Justice Department lawyer, FBI agents and the Internal Revenue Service.
