|[Gov. Edwin Edwards' Portrait from La. Sec. of State's site]|
So, what does a former governor and convicted white collar criminal do following a ten year stint in a federal prison? Well, according to A&E and various news sources, they sometimes get their own reality television shows! At least, that is what is reportedly occurring in the case of former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards!
The flamboyant Edwards was released from prison in 2011 after serving a ten year sentence based on federal racketeering and extortion charges. That same year, following his release, the now 85 year old former governor reportedly married Trina, a 32 year old woman who had written to him while he was in prison.
And now, according to reports, A&E will produce "The Governor's Wife," which premieres in late February. What do you think? Will you tune in?
