I don't want to say John Edwards is a douche bag, he pretty much admits to it. He finally admitted to having an affair on his wife (who is fighting cancer!), but he isn't taking credit for the rumored love child.
Edwards told ABC News that he lied repeatedly about the affair with 42-year-old Rielle Hunter but said that he didn't love her. He said he has not taken a paternity test but knows he isn't the father because of the timing of the affair and the birth.
Hunter's daughter, Frances Quinn Hunter, was born on Feb. 27, 2008, and no father's name is given on the birth certificate filed in California.
The National Enquirer first reported on the affair in October 2007, and Edwards denied it.
"The story is false," he told reporters. "It's completely untrue, ridiculous." He professed his love for his wife, Elizabeth, who had an incurable form of cancer, saying, "I've been in love with the same woman for 30-plus years and as anybody who's been around us knows, she's an extraordinary human being, warm, loving, beautiful, sexy and as good a person as I have ever known. So the story's just false."
And to think We almost elected this man president! I know we shouldn't pry into this man's personal life too much, but this brings up some huge character flaws. Edwards was a pretty strong candidate for vice president, now they won't even invite him to the convention.
Well, John, looks like your political career is over! So long!
A blast from the past...
