The witness list for the John Edwards criminal trial includes dozens of names close to the former presidential candidate. Among them are his eldest daughter, staffers from his 2008 campaign and Rielle Hunter, the woman at the heart of the sex scandal that destroyed his political career.

The proposed lists of witnesses for the defense and prosecution were released late Thursday, following the start of jury selection for Edwards' federal trial in Greensboro, N.C.

The Democrat faces six counts related to nearly $1 million in secret payments from two campaign donors used to help hide the married candidate's pregnant mistress as he sought the White House.

As expected, former campaign aide Andrew Young is listed as a prosecution witness. Young handled the money for Hunter's care and falsely claimed paternity of Edwards' child.
