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.
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.
