ABC News is reporting that John Edwards has been repeatedly flirting with a female juror during his trial, a distraction that "has become so obvious that even Edwards' attorneys have to work to suppress their laughter at the absurdity of it all."
The juror (who is an alternate) is a young woman with jet-black hair. According to the report, "The juror clearly instigated the exchanges. She smiles at him. He smiles at her. She giggles. He blushes."

She probably just wants him for the conjugal visits.
From the time I’ve spent on jury duty, this is clear justification for a “mistrial”.
Sounds like an episode of Law & Order...
A "mistrial" is the likely result which sleezebag Edwards is aiming for.
This reminds me of the thieves being led off to be hanged in the 17th-century England, who could not resist taking a few purses as they were pushed through the crowd.
This is not new behavior from him.
The judge running this circus is an Obama appointee.
“”On Thursday the alternates three women and one man caused something of a stir when they showed up in matching bright yellow shirts, hardly bothering to suppress their snickering as the judge addressed the main panel of jurors. Today they are all wearing red.
For nearly four weeks, 16 jurors heard all the evidence in Edwards case. After the closing arguments, Judge Catherine Eagles made the unorthodox decision to extend the service of the four alternate jurors, while the primary panel of 12 deliberated the six felony charges. So for the last five days of deliberations, the gang of four alternates has been required to show up at court each day, sent to a holding room with instructions to avoid talking about the case.
Anytime the jurors are in the courtroom, the judge calls the alternates down to keep them apprised of the status of deliberations. And the alternates are also sent to lunch every afternoon with the rest of the jurors...””
Where ‘s the Judge?
A well hung jury?
Update: According to a tweet from Politico reporter Josh Gerstein, the judge at the John Edwards trial has cleared the courtroom of press and the public to discuss a “jury matter” that has come up.
Hmm ~ Edwards wasn’t exactly trying for a ‘mistrial’ when he was doing Raelle and the Raelians. More like something pretty fundamental and basic in his make-up. It’s like a feeling that he wants to be wanted.
Given the liberal bent of that show the entire episode would cast Edwards as the hero........
SHE HAS $$ IN HER EYES...................
I believe Rielle is capable of putting a stop to this situation.
Don’t jump to conclusions. I was on a jury once and the defendant would smile at me and I’d smile back and I still voted to find him guilty of 115 counts of mail fraud and 128 counts of securities fraud. And he ended up with consecutive terms so he won’t see the light of day until sometime in the year 2140.
He probably smiles at her like this guy!
Clearly, this jurist has a thing for bad boys.
