John Edwards denies breaking campaign finance laws
Former US presidential hopeful John Edwards has pleaded not guilty to violating campaign finance laws in an effort to hide an extramarital affair.
A North Carolina grand jury charged the Democrat with using cash from two donors to shelter campaign aide Rielle Hunter, with whom he fathered a child.
It said he illegally used the campaign funds to pay her living expenses and hide her from the media.
