Defence rests case without calling Edwards

Former senator John Edwards accused of using campaign funds to hide affair with videographer.

    Lawyers for John Edwards, one of the leading candidates in the 2008 US presidential race, have rested their case without calling the former senator for North Carolina, or his former mistress, to the witness stand.

    Edwards is accused of using $1m, donated by two wealthy donors to his presidential campaign, in a bid to hide his extramarital affair with Rielle Hunter, a campaign videographer.
