The defense then flashed a photo of that magazine cover up on the screens visible to the jury. It was dated two weeks later.
Seated at the defense table, Edwards appeared more upbeat than in past days, frequently smiling and whispering with his attorneys as Young testified.
Lowell also challenged Young on which amount of money Mellon said she would provide over time to help make Edwards president — $1.2 million, as he testified this week, or $900,000 and $925,000, figures he had previously given.
Young said the number he provided this week is the correct one.
Later in the day, Lowell asked Young whether $1.2 million was also the exact amount of the original construction contract for his house. Young replied that it was just a coincidence, and that $1.2 million was also the price for which they had sold their previous lakefront home in Raleigh, netting a $400,000 profit.
Lowell's cross examination of Young will continue Friday.
