To think for years this man conned America into thinking that he was about ethics, virtue and family. To think this man used to get on his high horse and berate Republicans on the daily while campaigning to be President of the United States. To think this man cheated on his cancer-stricken wife and lied about it on national TV. To think the liberal media had their collective head so far up John Edwards ass that took a tabloid to report the truth about his affair. You want proof of the con job that liberals are putting on Americans, just look up John Edwards.
Former presidential candidate John Edwards will admit he is the father of his former campaign aide's 18-month-old baby, a TV news station in North Carolina reports.
WRAL says sources told the station Edwards' public admission could come before the end of the ongoing criminal investigation into whether his campaign illegally paid the woman, campaign videographer Rielle Hunter, to keep quiet about their affair.
The news comes a day after the National Enquirer reported that a secret DNA test proved Edwards' paternity.
The Enquirer, which last year broke the story of Edwards' affair with Hunter, said the test was taken after Hunter tried to get financial help from Edwards for her 18-month-old daughter, Frances.
Hunter apparently agreed to testify to a federal grand jury investigating whether Edwards broke campaign finance law by paying "hush" money to Hunter and another aide who claimed paternity of the child. Hunter was spotted last week in Raleigh, N.C., entering a federal courthouse, where she spent nine hours.
Edwards adamantly denied during a confessional interview with ABC News last summer that he had fathered a child with Hunter, and he said he welcomed a paternity test. His wife, Elizabeth, has said while promoting her book that she doesn't know if her husband is the father.
And once again I thank former President Bush for defeating the scum of a ticket that was Kerry-Edwards.
