Revenge from Beyond the Grave

I love this.  Elizabeth Edwards secretly recorded video testimony helps nail John:
In a final act of revenge, Elizabeth Edwards secretly recorded a testimony in her dying days that helped prosecutors indict husband John last week, it was claimed today. 
John Edwards is due to stand trial on charges that could lead to a 30-year jail sentence after he pleaded not guilty on Friday to using $925,000 in campaign funds to cover up an affair and love child. 
The estranged wife of the former presidential candidate is alleged to have filmed a damning testimony that was central to the prosecution's case for charges.

Friends said the cancer victim, who died in December, wanted to 'haunt' her estranged husband and his mistress Rielle Hunter, with whom he fathered a child and made a sex tape.
Incidentally, as a successful trial lawyer, John Edwards is in a bit of a Catch-22.  He could've represented himself, but that would leave him with a fool for a client.  Instead, he hired an attorney, which implies that he's not good enough to do the job himself.  The real situation is a bit more complicated, and thankfully, smarter people than me have already thought it through.
