The Federal Election Commission approved a final audit on Thursday that concludes former presidential candidate John Edwards' campaign owes the government more than $2 million.



The report found John Edwards for President got matching funds in excess of his entitlement as a candidate, misstated its cash-on-hand balance by nearly $100,000, failed to itemize loan repayments of more than $4 million and stale-dated at least 128 checks worth $141,808.



The FEC voted 6-0 to approve the June 23 memorandum from its chief compliance officer and audit division, which said the Edwards campaign owed $2,278,315.
