    The Pretty Boy, John Edwards (who gave the Two America's speech) is building a modest 28,200 square foot compound in North Carolina

    Does this mean the US economy is now good Johnny?

    Edwards Home County's Largest
    The 28,200-square-foot home also Orange County's most valuable

    By Don Carrington
    January 26, 2007


    RALEIGH — Presidential candidate John Edwards and his family recently moved into what county tax officials say is the most valuable home in Orange County. The house, which includes a recreational building attached to the main living quarters, also is probably the largest in the county.

    “The Edwardses’ residential property will likely have the highest tax value in the county,” Orange County Tax Assessor John Smith told Carolina Journal. He estimated that the tax value will exceed $6 million when the facility is completed.

    The rambling structure sits in the middle of a 102-acre estate on Old Greensboro Road west of Chapel Hill. The heavily wooded site and winding driveway ensure that the home is not visible from the road. “No Trespassing” signs discourage passersby from venturing past the gate.

    Don Knight, Orange County building plans examiner, told CJ that, including the recreational building, the Edwardses’ home would be one of the largest in Orange County.

    Knight approved the building plans that showed the Edwards home totaling 28,200 square feet of connected space. The main house is 10,400 square feet and has two garages. The recreation building, a red, barn-like building containing 15,600 square feet, is connected to the house by a closed-in and roofed structure of varying widths and elevations that totals 2,200 square feet.

    The main house is all on one level except for a 600-square-foot bedroom and bath area above the guest garage.

    The recreation building contains a basketball court, a squash court, two stages, a bedroom, kitchen, bathrooms, swimming pool, a four-story tower, and a room designated “John’s Lounge.”

    Edwards was the Democratic candidate for vice president in 2004 and a former N.C. senator.

    Thursday afternoon, the Edwards for President press office was unable to provide information on any additional buildings planned for the estate.

    Since the Democrats are all for higher taxes I'm sure he's just finding ways he can pay the government more money through property taxes ;).

    Personally I'm happy for him. Through his education he's amassed a fortune, good for him. I just wish he'd stop trying to give away other's money while spouting platitudes about being 'everyman.'

    Some might say it was fraudulent lawsuits.

    No, they wouldn't.

    Stick to being a racist piece of trash. Lying doesn't become you.

    So I see Jilly is still her old jolly self. All the warmth and charm of a scorpion

    Edwards used lies and distorations to win his court caes. He put alot of good Dr's out of business while lining his own pockets. ZTo show how much he cared about his clients he only took what, 40% of what he stole?

    What a nice guy

    Put up or shut up. Or go back to playing Dungeons and Dragons instead of trying to talk to the grown-ups.
