GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- An interior designer who funneled secret checks from a wealthy heiress to a fundraiser for John Edwards will retake the witness stand at the Democrat's corruption trial.
Bryan Huffman testified Thursday that he received $725,000 in checks from his friend Rachel "Bunny" Mellon and forwarded them to Andrew Young, a fundraiser for Edwards' 2008 presidential campaign. Federal law then limited campaign contributions to $2,300.
Young testified last week that he took some of the money, along with unreported cash from another donor, and used it to help hide Edwards' pregnant mistress from the media. Edwards denies knowing about the payments and has pleaded not guilty to six counts related to campaign finance violations.
Next to testify could be Mellon family lawyer Alex Forger, who confronted Edwards about the money.
