Edwards and His Hedge-Fund Position

In an interview with the Associated Press, John Edwards said he worked for Fortress Investment Group, a hedge fund, to “learn more about financial markets and their relation to poverty”.

Compare that to the statement made by his spokesperson Kim Rubey when he signed up for the job: Edwards will be   “providing support in developing investment opportunities worldwide and strategic device on global economic issues”.  The BusinessWeek article stated Edwards would serve as a “part-time global dealmaker”.
