His political career is done as well it should be:
on Friday admitted to an extramarital affair while his wife was battling cancer. He denied fathering the woman's daughter. 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.What a lying prick. Over and over this former candidate for President of the United States lied the American public about cheating on his dying wife and it took a rag like the National Enquirer to nail him dead to rights. Why? Because half of the liberal press didn't want to have anything to do with the story of a prominent Democrat (and potential Vice-President) carrying on in such a despicable manner, despite all the rumors to the contrary. Now Edwards admits to having an affair, but not fathering his mistresses' baby. Well you'd have to be idiot to believe anything he say to say now. Then too, if the affair was over why did the Enquirer bust him visiting his allegedly former paramour in the middle of the night at her hotel a few weeks ago? Now the question is will the NYTimes, which had no problem putting John McCain on Page 1 for an alleged affair with a former lobbyist, cover Edwards admitted affair with the same vigor and diligence? I highly doubt it, after all, when it comes to fair and balanced reporting on the issues, the Times lost sight of that a long time ago.
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.
ABC said a former Edwards campaign staffer claims he is the father, not Edwards.
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.
Three weeks ago, thesaid its reporters caught Edwards visiting Hunter at a California hotel. In the interview, scheduled to air on ABC News' "Nightline," Edwards said the tabloid was correct when it reported on his meeting with Hunter at the last month.
