John Edwards Admits Fathering Rielle Hunter Love Child; No One Surprised

by at . Comments

John Edwards has finally admitted what we have suspected for years - that he is indeed the father of a two-year-old daughter with his mistress, Rielle Hunter.

The former U.S. Senator and Democratic presidential candidate said today in a statement that he’s taking responsibility for the child, Frances Quinn Hunter:

“I am Quinn’s father. I will do everything in my power to provide her with the love and support she deserves. I have been able to spend time with her and trust that future efforts to show her the love and affection she deserves can be done privately."

"It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me. [I've] been providing financial support for Quinn and have reached an agreement with her mother to continue providing support."

"I understand that to all those I have disappointed and hurt, these words will never be enough, but I am truly sorry.”

Smilin' John

Edwards is not speaking publicly on the subject, in part because of an ongoing federal investigation into whether campaign money was used to try to cover up the affair.

He has denied wrongdoing, but then again, he also denied the affair with Rielle Hunter, and fathering the child with Rielle Hunter, so who knows with this guy!

Edwards' attorneys say he's been seeing Quinn and providing financial support for about a year, and just signed a new child support agreement with Rielle.

A spokesperson for John's cancer-stricken wife, Elizabeth Edwards, says she learned last year that Quinn is John's child. Yet this is the first formal admission.

John Edwards’ personal and political troubles began after the National Enquirer began reporting in late 2007 about his affair with Hunter, which he denied.

In 2008, after his failed presidential bid, Edwards was caught visiting Hunter in a hotel and eventually confirmed to ABC News that he had an affair with her.

Still, he vehemently denied on the air that he was the father of her child. Dude lies a lot and will only come clean when his hand has been forced, basically.

Today's admission comes on the heels of the political expose Game Change by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, which sent shock waves around D.C.

A portion of the book about the 2008 election, which ran in New York Magazine, dealt with details of Edwards’ affair and his relationship with Elizabeth.

The admission also comes in advance of a tell-all book by Andrew Young, a former Edwards aide who originally claimed to be the father of Hunter’s child.

Basically, he would have kept on denying it if he had any choice, and had no interest in actually coming clean for morality's sake. Pretty typical, John.

Elizabeth should d sue this shysters ass for all he's worth. Not a penny for John's hos. This dog deserved to be kicked in the balls a few times. Maybe that will calm him down. If he out humping on ugly trash like Hunter he must be out dog humping anything that moves. Throw his phony ass out into the sewer where it belongs and toss his ho in too!

How can such an ugly dope user like Druck (Hunter) score so much money for being a ho with no talent. This horrid looking wench is living the high life for what? For looking like shit, doping all the time, being a whack job and fucking other women’s husbands. This piece of shit deserves nothing but some jail time with some real world women that would beat the crap out of her. One ugly ho that struck gold. Bitch!

I remember seeing Edwards on Larry King with Elizabeth a couple years ago and I thought, " he looks like a creep". Whenever his wife spoke on that show, he moved his head like robot and looked at her with a weird blank fake stare. Fast forward... last night I watched Larry King talk to Ted Haggard and Ted Harrard looked at his wife the same way Edward did. Like a robot. Like a creep.

Someone should have edited this article before it was published. It's horribly written.
