Former presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. John Edwards, right, arrives outside federal court with his daughter Cate, left, in Greensboro, N.C., for his trial on charges of violating federal campaign finance laws, Monday, April 23, 2012. Opening statements were to begin Monday. Edwards, 58, pleaded not guilty to six criminal counts related to nearly $1 million in secret payments from two wealthy supporters. Much of the money was used to hide the then-married politician's pregnant mistress during his 2008 White House campaign.   (AP Photo/Chuck Burton)
