John Edwards, Real-Estate Baron, truly cares about the Poor

Dan Riehl points us to a fascinating story of two Americas: the America John Edwards inhabits, and the one the rest of us live in.

We find that Edwards owns the largest house in his county: a tiny 28,200 square-foot estate. And he recently sold his Georgetown mansion -- for a paltry $5.2 million -- to Paul and Terry Klaassen. This pair are the founders of the largest assisted-living housing chain in the U.S. And, by the way, they happen to be cooperating with a federal inquiry into accounting practices and stock option deals linked with that company.

Riehl also reminds us that this isn't the first time Edwards and odd real-estate dealings have been associated.
