John Edwards corruption trial: Former aide to retake stand
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Another ex-aide to John Edwards will retake the witness stand at the former presidential candidate's corruption trial.
Matthew Nelson began his testimony late Wednesday, the latest in a series of former Edwards aides subpoenaed by prosecutors.
Nelson worked in several jobs for Edwards, including as a scheduler and body man, the close aide who travels with a candidate.
Nelson testified he was present at several key events, including the first time the Democrat met Rachel "Bunny" Mellon, the 101-year-old heiress who provided most of the secret payments at issue in the criminal case.
Edwards has pleaded not guilty to six counts related to campaign finance violations related to nearly $1 million from two campaign supporters used to help hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the White House in 2008.
