John Edwards just can't catch a break. Even the Sanford debacle can't sink his baby momma drama. Now, apparently there's a sex tape. God I'm glad he didn't end up as president...because this is just another sign that he isn't too bright.
Former Edwards aide Andrew Young says the ex-senator and his former mistress, Rielle Hunter, once made a sex tape, according to someone who has seen Young’s book proposal.
St. Martin’s Press just inked a deal with Young, who also says in his proposal that, contrary to his public statement last year, he is not the father of Hunter’s infant daughter — Edwards is. Edwards has denied that.
Young says that his belief in Edwards ran so deep that he agreed to take the fall for the candidate, inviting the pregnant Hunter to live with him, his wife, Cheri, and their three children. Later, after Hunter delivered the baby, Young and his family moved to a different home in California.
While he was unpacking, Young discovered a videocassette, according to the book pitch. Hunter had been hired by the Edwards campaign to videotape the candidate’s movements, but this one is said to have shown him taking positions that weren’t on his official platform.
The purported sex tape confirmed to Hunter that Edwards was even more reckless than he thought.
According to our source, Hunter confided to Young that she and Edwards talked about getting married should the candidate’s cancer-stricken wife, Elizabeth, pass away, even discussing what music they’d play at their wedding.
So Edwards' fall guy is starting to squeal like a poked pig. What was Edwards thinking? What kind of alternate universe must you live in to think that making a sex tape with your side piece while running for the highest office in the land is a good idea? Can you say blackmail?
I used to like Edwards. I thought an Obama, Edwards team would be unbeatable. But that was before I found out that apparently Edwards is lead by his dick even more than Clinton...is that even possible?
Anyhoo...I guess all of us gossip mongers will just keep an eye out for Young's book to drop and the tape to leak...it's only a matter of time.
