Aide: John Edwards Called Rielle Hunter "Crazy Slut," Said There Was "1-in-3" Chance Baby Was His

by at . Comments

When John Edwards first learned Rielle Hunter was pregnant with his child, he reacted with disbelief and harsh words, according to former aide Andrew Young.

"She's a 'crazy slut,'" Young says Edwards told him.

Testifying Tuesday in the second day of Edwards' criminal trial, Young recalled delivering the news to the politician in mid-2007 that Rielle was preggers.

Describing their phone call, Young testified, "He was very concerned. He was very angry ... [Edwards] said, 'There's a one-in-three chance' [the child] was his."

Young, who at one point claimed to be the father of Hunter's love child to protect the Democratic presidential candidate, is the government's star witness.

The former U.S. senator is charged with illegally using campaign contributions to cover up his affair with Rielle Hunter while he sought the presidency.

Hunter, who shares parenting responsibilities with Edwards for their daughter Frances Quinn, is also expected to testify in the six-week bombshell trial.

It had been reported previously by Young in statements to police that Edwards told her to get an abortion, though this has not come up at trial.

Young testified that the now-deceased Elizabeth Edwards had discovered her husband had an affair with Hunter, a campaign videographer, in 2006.

She was unaware that Hunter and Edwards were still in contact in the summer of 2007, Young testified, because he ran interference for the couple.

Andrew Young says he elaborately set up the calls between Hunter and Edwards through what they called the "bat phone," a separate cell phone.

Edwards, 58, has pleaded not guilty. His attorney said in opening statements that he has "committed many sins" but did not break federal laws.

Rielle Hunter is ugly on the inside and hideous on the outside. John Edwards had a horrible lapse in judgment, and I have to wonder what kool aid he was drinking, to not see her as anything more than trash who was looking to commit fornication with a married man. Elizabeth was beautiful.

Rielle is trailer park trash. Dont care how affluent her family is - I'm sure that they love Quinn but are very disspointed with their slut daughter. She's still looking for 15 minutes of fame. If she truly loved John Edwards, she wouldn't have written the book. It appears it is more out of spite to John because he won't give her the recognization other than she's MY BABY'S MOMMA. Rielle, go crawl under the rock that you slithered from. Society will never ever accept you. John is paying the PRICE because he choose to think with the head between his legs, not the head on his shoulders. Hell 15 minutes of satifaction will make a PREACHER scream I LOVE U. Rielle , you are nothing but trailer park trash. Your ticket to fame is Quinn your daughter.

This story doesn't deserve the air time it gets when unemployment is high, wealthy people don't pay enough taxes and our beloved congress with its bourgeois conservatives and democratic weaklings continue to cut funding to social security and inflict personal suffering on the elderly and disabled. DISGUSTING!

@Julie Sahlbert...Um yes! she is a slut as old as she is she knew the consequences of her actions, as well as he did. For all the women out there who go after someone else's man... when there is kids involved that is a line YOU DO NOT cross. And Rielle did. So that makes her a slut. And that is the difference between her an Elizabeth, now she was a real woman, NOT a slut like Rielle!

John Edwards is a disgusting excuse for a human being & Rielle Hunter is a gold digging Ho who will stop @ nothing to get her 15 min of fame. They deserve each other. I hope John Edwards is found guilty of misappropriating campaign funds & goes to jail for a long time. If he expects his mistress to be faithful he can forget it, shes a "crazy slut" indeed & so is John Edwards. He couldn't wait for his wife to die before whoring around, what a guy. I hope he gets everything he deserves, Feel sorry for his child with Rielle & his children with his wife

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.
