Mr. Edwards is in trouble for using campaing funds to pay for the care and feeding of his mistress.
Mr. Lenhard was a Bully Boy Bush appointee. SourceWatch notes:
When Lenhard was nominated December 16, 2005, by President Bush, he was serving as Associate General Counsel "for the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, AFL-CIO. He previously served as an Associate with Kirschner, Weinberg & Dempsey. Earlier in his career, Mr. Lenhard worked for the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union, AFL-CIO. He received his bachelor's degree from Johns Hopkins University and his JD from the University of California, Los Angeles." 
"As a lawyer, Lenhard wasn't able to overturn McCain-Feingold before it took effect, but, as an FEC commissioner, he'll be able to do the next best thing and try to gut it," Arianna Huffington wrote December 18, 2005. "But that's not why I'm obsessing (if I got worked up every time Bush picked a fox to guard a government henhouse, I'd never get anything done!). No, the thing that has my mental wheels in overdrive is the fact that Lenhard is the husband of Viveca Novak -- the Time Magazine journalist whose loose lips may end up saving Karl Rove from joining Scooter Libby on Indictment Row."
Mr. Thomas' SourceWatch page is here but it is just a repost of his F.E.C. biography.
I think this will be an interesting trial to observe. Mr. Edwards really seems to believe that donations to his political campaign can be used to cover a love nest (they made a sex tape, remember) as well as a post-love nest for his mistress and child.
