THE HAPPY COUPLE
Former Louisiana governor Edwin Edwards is one of the most awesome politicians EVER. Particularly of those politicians who have actually been sent to prison.
Edwards, who was just recently released from federal prison after serving eight plus years on racketeering charges, was married today. Edwards married his hot, blonde, 32-year-old prison pen pal, Trina Grimes Scott.
I’m sure the fact that the lovely bride has tried to ink a reality tv deal has nothing to do with the marriage. Edwards has been married three times, the first time in 1949. He is also a great-grandfather and responsible for two of the all-time greatest quotes in American political history.
* While running against former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke for governor in 1992, Edwards was quoted as saying, “The only way I can lose this election is if I’m caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy.”
* Commenting on the “similarities” between Duke and himself, Edwards noted the only thing they had in common was, “We’re both wizards beneath the sheets.”
