REPORT: John Edwards wants a plea deal to avoid jail

john-edwards-family.jpgDisgraced former vice presidential candidate and senator John Edwards reportedly wants to work out a "plea deal" to avoid serving jail time. And that will involve him having to admit his guilt. For the third time.

He denied having an affair with Rielle Hunter, then denied he was the father of her child. He recanted on both of those denials. Is he ready for another one?

Edwards has been investigated for a year by the feds, including the FBI and IRS, for alleged campaign violations related to paying his mistress Rielle Hunter.
