Edwards Ordered to Repay More Than $2 Million

John Edwards plans to appeal a ruling by the Federal Election Commission that his 2008 presidential campaign must pay the government more than $2.2 million that it shouldn't have received, WRAL-TV reports.

"A recent FEC audit determined that the Edwards campaign received $2.1 million in matching funds for which it wasn't eligible. The commission also found that the campaign had $141,000 in 'stale dated checks,' which are refund checks that donors never cashed after contributing more than the legal limit, according to the audit."
