What a scummy asshole. And yes, I believe that is the harshest language I've ever used on this blog. Appropriate, I'd say.
John Edwards repeatedly lied during his Presidential campaign about an extramarital affair with a novice filmmaker, the former Senator admitted to ABC News today.
In an interview for broadcast tonight on Nightline, Edwards told ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff he did have an affair with 44-year old Rielle Hunter, but said that he did not love her.
Edwards also denied he was the father of Hunter's baby girl, Frances Quinn, although the one-time Democratic Presidential candidate said he has not taken a paternity test.
As for him not being the child's father, that's just one more lie. Edwards is now telling us that although he knew he was under investigation by the media, he went to see his mistress' newborn baby even though it wasn't also his own? Does that really sound likely?
