CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Sources tell our CBS affiliate in Raleigh former Senator John Edwards could be indicted within the month.
The two-year grand jury investigation appears to have zeroed in on the alleged cover-up of Edwards affair and money from a 100-year old supporter.
Former campaign aide, Andrew Young, wrote in his book that 100-year-old heiress Bunny Mellon gave Edwards a total of $700,000 as a gift.
Young says that money helped fund the cover-up of Edwards' affair with Rielle Hunter who was at the time pregnant with his child.
Andrew Young also told WRAL in a previous interview that wealthy Texas lawyer Fred Baron financed flights and paid rent on a California home for Hunter.
"I heard one of the jets used for Rielle to fly around the country was $55,000 to $60,000," said Young.
Young went on to say the house that Baron rented was $20,000 a month.
Fred Baron died from cancer in 2008, but his widow has appeared before the Grand Jury in Raleigh.
Investigators have also interviewed Bunny Mellon, twice. Some of her family members testified to the Grand Jury.
Young says Mellon never knew what her donation was used for.
It's that money and the alleged cover up of Edwards affair with Rielle Hunter-- that are at the center of this possible indictment.

It must have to do with the state of your political ascendancy. If you are still in good standing nothing happens and if not well you're yesterday's hamburger.
