Source: John Edwards Will Finally Admit Paternity of Rielle Hunter Love Child

by at . Comments

North Carolina's WRAL News says it expects former U.S. Sen. John Edwards to admit that he is the father of former mistress' Rielle Hunter's daughter.

This report comes on the heels of a Thursday article that claimed a DNA test proves Edwards is father to Frances Quinn Hunter, who is 18 months old.

Rielle Hunter Baby: Frances Quinn Hunter

Edwards, a two-time Democratic presidential candidate, confessed last August to an affair with Rielle Hunter, a videographer on his 2008 campaign.

John has denied fathering her daughter, saying his relationship with Rielle Hunter ended before the child was conceived. However, he was busted visiting Rielle in a Beverly Hills hotel last summer after the little girl had already been born.

This incident forced him to admit the affair, which he initially denied as well. The name of Frances' father is left blank on her birth certificate.

Andrew Young, a long-time Edwards campaign aide, initially claimed to have knocked up Rielle Hunter, then promptly disappeared from the planet. But Young is reportedly now writing a book in which he will claim Edwards is the father.

Rielle Hunter spent nine hours last Thursday at the federal courthouse in Raleigh, N.C., where the grand jury was meeting. She brought Frances Quinn along.

One likely reason for Young's change of heart? A federal subpoena.

A grand jury is investigating whether John Edwards' campaign funds were illegally paid to Rielle's "production company" to keep her quiet about the affair.

Andrew Young was at the federal courthouse in July when the grand jury was meeting. It is unclear if Edwards will face criminal charges for the payments.

Sources said Edwards' public admission of paternity could come before the end of the criminal investigation, however, as he's being backed into a corner.

The shady politician would almost certainly prefer to keep lying, as he did about the affair for quite awhile, but the investigation may be forcing his hand.

If Elizabeth Edwards hasn't already kicked her cheating, lying husband of the house, this ought to be the straw that breaks the proverbial camel's back.

John IS THE CANCER inhabiting Elizabeth. Once he is finally gone, perhaps she will become healthier. You would think that with all they have been through, he would have been a better husband. I so hope he get EVERYTHING he so richly deserves. What a piece of crap with a great haircut.

Okay ron, I see your point now. Glad that you agree that Edwards is a "shit bag" I want to also support you on two other things. Firstly, Bush did lie to the American public many times especially in relation to the ill-fated "Iraq War". Secondly,Mr Barrack Obama MUST be given a chance to perform this difficult and challenging role of president, especially since he was given a very bad hand at one of the most difficult times in US history.

Anyone from North Carolina could have told you what a lying dog he is and always has been.

Hey Mike, Give the "savior" a reasonable chance. After all, we gave bush 8 years to put us where we are today, Moron! Kakyjasper, I agree Edwards is a "shitbag." However, my point was, if you are looking to identify a liar, why select clinton and not bush or ensign or a gaggle of others.

ron, I am not a Bush lover as you implied and I myself am not perfect. I also have a weakness and have been unfaithful in the past too. But Edwards was running fo president of the United States, the highest office in the land and couldnt keep his thing in his pants. Not only that he denied that the child is his. Who man in his right mind would deny his own child. I have children and I cant see myself disowning ahy of them regardless to the situation. No Way! This "shit bag" is a disgrace to the human race.

Rialto..Now I'll be the first to admit I'm not sure which word(s) Sandy is/are referring to; but I think you should have asked to have a better understanding of which word he/she meant to use. Either word could be used to describe words in certain parts of the sentence; let's not try to confuse anyone, or pretend to be smarter!
That being said... I agree John Edwards is scum, but his wife is NOT...let's get it right... she is NOT anymore responsible for HIS action than you are your neighbors! How dare you imply that her returning to the campaign trail made her "not entirely blameless in this regard". As far as her returning on the campaign trail... so what? What the he!! is she guilty of again? I fail to see her crime. Ack... I have to ask: are you married? Are you a female or male? I would guess you're a gay male, but there is room for error. Good luck in your alter realty cause in our reality people cheat all the time. I bet you've been cheated on too!!!!!!

John Edwards Quotes

I am and have been willing to take any test necessary to establish the fact that I am not the father of any baby, and I am truly hopeful that a test will be done so this fact can be definitively established.

John Edwards

In 2006, I made a serious error in judgment and conducted myself in a way that was disloyal to my family and to my core beliefs.
