I wonder if SnObama will throw John under the bus as well? (http://deathby1000papercuts.com/2008/07/john-edwards-love-child-scandal-edward-caught-with-mistress-and-love-child/)

John Edwards, who has been mentioned as both a possible vice-presidential candidate and candidate for attorney general in a Barack Obama administration has been caught visiting his mistress and her secret love child by the National Enquirer at 2:40 am this morning in a Los Angeles hotel.

The married ex-senator from North Carolina - whose wife Elizabeth continues to battle cancer — met with his mistress, blonde divorcee Rielle Hunter, at the Beverly Hilton on Monday night July 21 - and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER was there! He didn’t leave until early the next morning.
....

Reporters from other media outlets asked Edwards about The NATIONAL ENQUIRER report during a campaign stop in Columbia, S.C.
Edwards responded: “The story is false. It’s completely untrue, ridiculous,” adding: “Anyone who knows me knows that I have been in love with the same woman for 30-plus years.”
Rielle issued her own statement, saying in part: “The innuendos and lies that have appeared on the Internet and in the NATIONAL ENQUIRER concerning John Edwards are not true, completely unfounded and ridiculous.”
But a source told the NATIONAL ENQUIRER: “Now that it seems to have blown wide open, Rielle may get her wish - all she wants is for John to marry her and for them to live happily ever after with their baby. She’s tired of running and living a lie.”

:rolleyes:

Things that make ya go, Hmmmmmmmmm.

I hate to say it, but they were the best source on the Lewinsky scandal, but I suspect that it was because they weren't embarassed by it the way that the NY Times and the rest of the MSM were.

The big question will be whether other media outlets pick up the story.

This doesn't surprise me, either. I always wondered how such a vacuous man stayed faithful. He could have at least stayed faithful while that poor woman is fighting the cancer. I guess she didn't have the good grace to die quickly enough for him.

Oh, one last thing, for those of you who say it’s The National Enquirer, how do we know it’s true? I suggest you Google the “National Enquirer and OJ Simpson.” They broke most of the important stories on that case. In general, these days they’re vastly more reliable than The New York Times.

Update on Breck Girl Affair/Love Child Story (El Rushbo)

RUSH: An update on the John Edwards situation out in Los Angeles broken by the National Enquirer. Two interesting things here: "A hotel security guard at the Beverly Hilton told FoxNews.com that he intervened this week between a man he identified as [the Breck Girl] and tabloid reporters who chased down the former presidential hopeful after what they're calling a rendezvous with his mistress and love child. The Beverly Hilton hotel guard said he encountered a shaken and ashen-faced [Breck Girl] who he did not immediately recognize in a hotel men's room early Tuesday morning about 2:30 and was in a literal tug-of-war with reporters on the other side of the door." The Breck Girl was trying to keep the door closed, and the reporters trying to get it open! Man, it's just hilarious to picture this. Somehow he barricades the bathroom door, starts combing his hair getting ready for his eventual exit but has to call hotel security on his cell phone to come get him.

"The guard at the Beverly Hilton hotel said, 'His face was just totally white.' When Edwards was told the reporters were shouting out questions about Edwards and [this babe] that the Enquirer says is the mother of his child, the guard said he escorted Edwards -- who was not a registered guest at the hotel, by the way -- out of the building after 2:00 a.m. "Edwards didn't say anything after he was escorted out, adding at times the reporters on the scene were rough on him, sticking a camera in his face and shouting questions." Anyway, there's been a criminal complaint filed now by the reporters. Two reporters in the Enquirer have filed a criminal complaint against Edwards because of the way they were treated at the hotel.

Edwards was not a guest. They were registered and they were kicked out while Edwards was escorted out. The plot thickens. The Los Angeles Times has instructed its bloggers that they are not to discuss this. They are not to write about this. They are not to post anything at all about the Breck Girl and the Beverly Hilton hotel being nabbed at 2:40 in the morning. You heard me right. The LA Times' editors have told bloggers at the LA Times there will be no posts on this. Business Week magazine, BusinessWeek magazine yesterday ran a story on why the Drive-Bys are not covering it, five reasons. BusinessWeek! The media is telling us why they aren't covering it.

National Enquirer Continues to Scoop MSM- Edwards' Baby Named "Frances Quinn Hunter" (http://www.gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/)


John Edwards has been paying former campaign contractor Rielle Hunter, who is allegedly the mother of his love child, $15,000 a month to keep her quiet.
The babies name was also revealed- "Frances Quinn Hunter."
The National Enquirer reported:


And The ENQUIRER is also exclusively revealing that Rielle’s baby is a girl named Frances Quinn Hunter and was born at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

“A super-rich pal – who was closely involved with the campaign finances – is helping John. It’s likely this man doesn’t know all the dirty details of John’s extramarital affair, but is acting out of loyalty and is not asking a lot of questions – only writing the checks,” revealed a source very close to the situation.

A year-long ENQUIRER investigation exploded spectacularly into the open on the night of July 21 when our reporters caught Edwards making a secret late-night visit to Rielle, 44, and their infant child at Los Angeles’ Beverly Hilton hotel.

That she doesn't. I remember lots of media types being outraged over Newt Gingrich's divorce, because his wife had cancer at the time, but I don't see a lot of them commenting on Edwards cheating on his wife while she tries to recover from cancer.

The NE is not where I get my news so to speak but what exactly WAS JE doing at a hotel at 3 am with a woman who is not his dying wife? WHY did he run into the crapper to get away from the "reporters"?

IF he KNEW the NE was dogging him for a couple of years over this affair, why put himself in a situation that COULD impact his possible VEEP selection? Poor decision making skills all around. One another site, a bunch of liberals actually accused those of us stating that perhaps the meeting was for nefarious immoral reasons of not "trusting "' our SO enough..They were demanding in typical foot stomping fashion that we Acknowledge that JE was probably simply there to offer intergender counseling and compassion to some one in need and then went on to say that there HAS to be issues of mistrust in our own marriages if we could not see the "kindness and generosity of spirit" that JE was so unselfishly providing this woman ;)


yeah...so whether there is a love child involved or not, whatever the source, I think JE made a boneheaded choice to visit this chick at that place and that time

The NATIONAL ENQUIRER is releasing the photograph that the world has been waiting for – the first-ever picture of John Edwards and his love child!

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.

“These photos are damning proof,” said a source close to the situation.

“He’s been caught lying about his affair with Rielle and their love child for many months – and now the proof against him is piling up.

“His elaborate coverup is unraveling at the seams.”
