(Newser) – Does that look like the face of a guilty man? Former senator John Edwards may have allegedly spent more than $1 million to hide his affair, but no cash can help him hide his mugshot—CNN obtained the photos through a Freedom of Information Act request. Edwards pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and campaign law violations after he was indicted by a grand jury over potentially misappropriated funds used to support his mistress, Rielle Hunter. A plea bargain deal with the Justice Department fell apart over Edwards' refusal to serve jail time.
