This has clearly become a nightmare for Edwards as the gossip hounds have him cornered. And as predicted other news outlets are starting to pile on.
The stunning “spy photo” shows the former presidential contender holding his infant daughter Frances Quinn Hunter at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles – where the ENQUIRER caught him visiting the baby’s mother, his mistress Rielle Hunter.
Edwards is holding his love child while standing in front of a distinctive striped curtain.
The same window covering hangs in each one of the hotel’s guest rooms – and is clearly visible in photos of guest rooms on the hotel’s Web site.
The Charlotte Observer obtained a copy of the child's birth certificate and posted it on its website.
No father is listed on the birth certificate of a child who a tabloid newspaper claims is linked to former Sen. John Edwards.
The document doesn't help to clear up repeated allegations by the National Enquirer that the N.C. Democrat had a sexual relationship, and later a baby, with Rielle Hunter, who had been hired last year by Edwards' presidential campaign.
The certificate, obtained by The Charlotte Observer on Thursday, shows Frances Quinn Hunter was born Feb. 27, more than two months after an Edwards aide claimed to be the father. Andrew Young, a former Edwards campaign finance director, claimed paternity in a December statement from his lawyer, posted at the political blog mydd.com.
The girl was born at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, Calif., to Rielle Jaya James Druck, also known as Rielle Hunter. Hunter, 44, was a videographer on Edwards' presidential campaign last year.
No papa listed on the birth certificate...very typical of a woman who either doesn't know or doesn't want to say who her child's father is.
I hope Obama stays as far away from Edwards as possible. He's poison now. The republicans will dance with glee if he is anywhere near Obama's campaign. It will give them the ultimate opportunity to drag out the old Clinton BJ jokes and the liberal immorality meme. That's the last thing we need right now.
So John, even though I sorta like you...take your kid and your mistress and go hide under a rock somewhere until the election is over...Ok?
