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.

Have to agree with Rialto. " Christians" are no better or worse than anyone else after all its just a name. Deeds are the true test of character. Sometimes we should be a little less judgemental of other people and focus on our own flaws. If people kept their noses on their own faces we would all be much better off.

kakylasper, i guess that makes him much worse a liar than Bush, who during his eight-year "screw-up," repeatedly lied to the public on matters much more important than his sex life. Who gives a rat's ass about how many stains Clinton left on some idiot's dress. The idiot should have known better than to become involved with a married man. But Bush lies on domestic and foreign matters, and that's ok for the conservative religious right, while, by the way, they're screwing anything that moves and at the same time are looking to impeach anyone who does exactly what they're doing, but gets caught. So much for Christian values!

Poor John, inspite of his wife's cancer, he has to TAKE CARE OF HIMSELF. Poor guy, forget his wife who is suffering beyond belief.
What a hypocrite he is.....how soon he forget's. I hope her book makes her a lot of mondey, and just get rid of him. He will do it again, believe me.
He want's his cake and eat it both. He is a low-life coward, and doesn't deserve to be in office nor return to a once loving family.
Idiot!!!!

Wow, peace out "LIARS." Mrs. Edwards tried to keep her marriage together with the father of her children - whether or not he did wrong. She is a strong, Christian woman, who is battling cancer, and you need to re-assess why you would be so horrible to call this woman explicatives. (Do you know what explicative means?) You really need to be blocked from making comments and get into some serious anger management or counseling or both.
