In his new tell-all book, The Politician, Andrew Young claims to have discovered a sex tape recorded by John Edwards and his mistress, Rielle Hunter, in a box of trash. Although Hunter apparently tried to dismantle the video by pulling the tape out of the cassette, Young was able to restore it and view the footage with his wife. How do you destroy a sex tape so that it actually stays destroyed?
Boy the slickster Johnny boy has really come to light. He makes Clinton look like an amateur.
Well Johnny boy has finally admitted that he had an affair like the National Enquirer has been reporting all along. But he denies the baby? Well his political career is done anyway and he will slowly fade out of the limelight. Between him and Mayor Kilpatrick is has been some week for politicians who made a**hole decisions.
MTV has the breakdown below:
On Friday (August 8), after months of denials, Edwards, admitted that he had carried on an affair with Rielle Hunter, though he has denied paternity of the child. The revelation came in an interview with ABC News, in which the former North Carolina senator confessed to lying during his run for president about the affair with the budding 44-year-old filmmaker.
Though he has not taken a paternity test, Edwards reportedly told ABC News that he knew he was not the father of Hunter’s child, Frances Quinn, based on the timing of the baby’s birth, February 27, 2008. He said the affair ended too soon for him to have been the father, though in a bizarre twist, one of Edwards’ campaign aides, Andrew Young, has said that he is the father of the baby.
The revelation of the covered-up affair is a huge blow to the political career of the charismatic, 54-year-old one-term senator and 2004 vice-presidential hopeful, who has spent much of the past four years working on poverty issues and, before dropping out in January, visiting the key states in the 2008 presidential election.
So when are we gonna actually hear from Johnny boy about this new photo? The National Enquirer is not backing down so he needs to come out and finally put this rumor to rest if it is not true.
The NATIONAL ENQUIRER is releasing the photograph that the world has been waiting for – the first-ever picture of John Edwards and his love child!
The stunning “spy photo” shows the former presidential contender holding his infant daughter Frances Quinn Hunter at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles – where the ENQUIRER caught him visiting the baby’s mother, his mistress Rielle Hunter.
Edwards is holding his love child while standing in front of a distinctive striped curtain.
The same window covering hangs in each one of the hotel’s guest rooms – and is clearly visible in photos of guest rooms on the hotel’s Web site.
“These photos are damning proof,” said a source close to the situation.
“He’s been caught lying about his affair with Rielle and their love child for many months – and now the proof against him is piling up.
“His elaborate coverup is unraveling at the seams.”
Wow if this turns out to be true this has got to take Elliot Spitzer outta the headlines. Can you believe that a former presidential candidate and current vice president contender could possibly have an out of wedlock child? Scandalous indeed.
A Beverly Hills hotel security guard told FOXNews.com he intervened this week between a man he identified as former Sen. John Edwards and tabloid reporters who chased down the former presidential hopeful after what they’re calling a rendezvous with his mistress and love child.
The Beverly Hilton Hotel guard said he encountered a shaken and ashen-faced Edwards — whom he did not immediately recognize — in a hotel men’s room early Tuesday morning in a literal tug-of-war with reporters on the other side of the door.
The highly coveted John Edwards endorsement was hand-delivered to Barack Obama on Wednesday in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Edwards broke rank with his wife, who is pro-Hillary and said he believes Obama shares his vision to cut poverty in half within ten years. Pundits are wondering whether this is a glimpse of the Democratic Dream Ticket or if the Dems orchestrated this endorsement to resuscitate Obama’s standing with blue collar “whites” who have categorically been flocking to Hillary Clinton, as evidenced with her landslide victory last night in West Virginia.
Edwards, who received a thunderous ovation when Obama introduced him to a crowd of several thousand, said, “brothers and sisters, we must come together as Democrats” to defeat McCain. “We are here tonight because the Democratic voters have made their choice, and so have I.”
Editor’s Note: Now, although I do agree that an Edwards endorsement is great for the Party, I don’t believe Democrats are directly addressing the issue at hand in West Virginia. Those rural blue collar whites aren’t interested in Edwards policies, they are vehemently non-supportive of the “black” candidate and grouping him with a “handsome” white young senator from North Carolina isn’t going to stem that distrust. A staggering 77% of voters said race played a factor at exit polls and the “Rev. Wright” issue doesn’t help. I find it funny that when whites invoke the “racial” divide into their argument they just haven’t “moved on” but when “blacks” mention it then they’re radical or separatists. Again, another clear example of the double standard which clearly exists.
