Former Gov. Edwin Edwards is wasting little time catching up on technology now that he is out of prison. Edwards recently joined the Facebook social networking website and quickly has accumulated about 3,000 “friends.” The former governor cites his engagement to Trina Grimes Scott in his relationship status.
He also cites himself as a moderate Democrat who is a fan of classical country music and “American Idol.” He has stated he is planning a book tour soon.
Edwards also is weighing in on politics, recently commenting that the 2012 Republican presidential candidates seem to be moving to the far right, “to please and capture the vote of the ‘tea party folks’ who are sincere and good people, but do not represent the average American citizen.”
