Aide: John Edwards Knocked Up Rielle Hunter, Said Dave Matthews Would Play at Wedding

by at . Comments

The former John Edwards aide who claimed it was he, not the former U.S. Senator and presidential hopeful, who knocked up Rielle Hunter in 2007, now says in a book proposal obtained by the New York Times that Edwards is the father.

Andrew Young says he and Edwards worked with his campaign finance chairman to hide that secret, and he helped facilitate the affair between John and Rielle.

According to the newspaper, Young wrote that Edwards told Hunter they would get married after Edwards' wife, who has terminal breast cancer, passed away.

Edwards told Hunter that the ceremony would be held on a rooftop in New York and the Dave Matthews Band would make an appearance, the Times said.

Because Dave Matthews has nothing better to do than to play a wedding for a disgraced politician marrying his baby mama after his first wife just died.

Rielle with John Edwards' daughter (come on, you know it is) Frances Quinn.

In May, federal investigators began looking into how John Edwards used campaign funds, which he may have used as hush money to buy off Rielle Hunter.

Edwards adamantly denied last summer that he had fathered a child with Hunter, though he initially denied the affair just as adamantly until he was busted.

Edwards says the affair with Hunter ended in 2006. Andrew Young said in 2007 he was the child's father. Hunter said at the time that Young was the father.

The birth certificate does not list a father's name.

In 2006, Edwards' political action committee paid Hunter's video production firm $100,000 for work. She filmed four web videos for his campaign website.

Then the committee paid another $14,086 on April 1, 2007. Edwards has said the latter payment wa for 100 hours of unused videotape Rielle Hunter shot.

Not only did John Edwards have a mistress, he may have paid her off.

The same day, the Edwards presidential campaign had injected $14,034.61 into the PAC for a "furniture purchase," according to federal election records.

Andrew Young, who fell off the face of the earth after admitting paternity, is thought to be rolling over on Edwards after being forced to testify under oath.

He recently signed a book deal with St. Martin's Press. There was a confidentiality agreement, and how the Times obtained the proposal is unknown.

I can't understand how Elizabeth Edwards could campaign for John for President when she already KNEW about his affair! What would have happened if John Edwards had won the Democratic nomination and THEN this came out? John McCain would be President! They are both selfish, self-centered people since it was all about them. I feel sorry for Elizabeth Edwards but on Oprah she said she didn't care if John was the father of Reille Hunter's baby since it didn't matter to her. How can anyone who is a mother not think an innocent child matters? The baby is, after all, her childrens' half-sister.

Edwards is no gentleman. He picked the slut up in a bar. She gave him a one liner and he fell. They both deserve each other. Sleeze and Slut. Elizibeth, Dump the guy. He is going nowhere fast.

He had NO problem breaking his wedding vows and sleeping with another woman, yet not one ounce of anything to admit he did it. A cheater and a coward. Then denies that he is the father of his daughter? I bet when she's older she'll be so proud of her daddy, not to mention her mother, who knew the man was married when she was conceived.

Say what you like about John Edwards, but the self-righteous assholes who critize Elizabeth Edwards should think again. The woman is dying, and has to live with the fact that her children will someday soon face life without their mother. Of course she could choose to spend her remaining existence being vindictive - but thank God she has the grace and strength to put her kids first, rather than "leave, divorce him and take him for all he is worth." I'd like to see whoever has such high and mighty opinions choose to do that to their kids father and die alone if they find themselves in her place someday.

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.
