Edwards' mistress testifying in grand jury investigation?

Rielle Hunter was at a federal courthouse Thursday

A federal grand jury is still investigating former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., looking into the question of whether his campaign funds were illegally used to provide money for his mistress, Rielle Hunter. On Thursday, it appeared that Hunter herself was called to testify.

Grand jury proceedings are secret, so thus far no one's been able to confirm that Hunter -- who brought her daughter, Frances, allegedly her child with Edwards -- was actually there to testify. But the grand jury had just reconvened, and it's not as if she could just sit and watch the proceedings.
