Former presidential candidate John Edwards is in the news for two reasons this week.

His high-end haircuts are being compared to Newt Gingrich’s tab at Tiffany’s. And he may be facing indictment.

After a two-year investigation into whether election funds were used to hush up those who knew about Edwards’ affair with a campaign videographer, the Justice Department reportedly has been given the go-ahead to seek criminal charges.

ABC and NBC, citing unnamed sources, report that a plea agreement is possible.

Edwards has admitted to an affair with Rielle Hunter, who gave birth to their daughter, now 3 years old. Although he has acknowledged paternity, he has denied breaking any laws.
