His political career is OVER! And all of this while his poor wife was dealing with breast cancer!
In a new interview with ABC’s Nightline, one-time Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards admits that he lied repeatedly about NOT having an affair with the woman rumored to be the mother of his illegitimate child.
The former Senator came clean today, Friday, after weeks and weeks of avoiding the allegations from The National Enquirer.
Edwards’ wife, Elizabeth, is battling terminal cancer and has not commented on this latest development.
We’re sure his kids are really proud of poppa!
Edwards told ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff that e did have an affair with 42-year old videographer Rielle Hunter, but said that he did not love her.
As if that makes it better?????
Edwards also denied he was the father of Hunter’s baby girl, Frances Quinn, although he said he has not taken a paternity test.
Edwards claims he knew he was not the father based on timing of the baby’s birth on February 27, 2008. He said his affair ended too soon for him to have been the father.
Uhmmm, then why did he go and visit the mother and baby last week????
Edwards said his wife, Elizabeth, and others in his family became aware of the affair in 2006.
Edwards made a point of saying that his wife’s cancer was in remission when he began the affair with Hunter. Elizabeth Edwards has since been diagnosed with an incurable form of the disease.
That makes it worse, douche!!!!!
Since becoming pregnant, Hunter has lived under assumed names in a series of expensive homes in North Carolina and, more recently, in Santa Barbara, California.
Edwards denied paying any money to Hunter to keep her from going pubic but said it was possible some of his friends or supporters may have made payments without telling him.
Shady all around!
He knows more than he’s telling!!!
Poor Elizabeth Edwards!
