(RALEIGH, N.C.) – One month after the death of his wife, the federal grand jury investigation into John Edwards has reconvened.
Lisa Blue Baron, the widow of former Edwards finance chairman Fred Baron, was seen entering a courthouse in Raleigh Wednesday for her testimony.
Baron’s appearance is a continuation of the probe that was expanded dramatically in October after a review of the case by Department of Justice prosecutors in Washington prompted around 20 new subpoenas to former Edwards campaign staffers and associates.
Last month, former spokesperson Jennifer Palmieri, former deputy campaign manager Jonathan Prince and four relatives of the billionaire heiress Rachel “Bunny” Mellon made appearances before the grand jury.
