    Edwards Admits Sexual Affair; Lied as Presidential Candidate

    In an ABC NEWS NIGHTLINE interview, Edwards Reveals He Cheated, But Didn't Father Child

    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.

    Edwards said he knew he was not the father based on timing of the baby's birth on February 27, 2008. He said his affair ended too soon for him to have been the father.

    A former campaign aide, Andrew Young, has said he was the father of the child.

    Edwards said the affair began during the campaign after she was hired. Hunter traveled with Edwards around the country and to Africa.

    Edwards said he told his wife, Elizabeth, and others in his family about the affair in 2006.

    Edwards made a point of telling Woodruff that his wife's cancer was in remission when he began the affair with Hunter. Elizabeth Edwards has since been diagnosed with an incurable form of the disease.

    When the National Enquirer first reported the alleged Edwards-Hunter affair last October 11, Edwards, his campaign staff and Hunter vociferously denounced the report.

    I really could not care less about this. The same would go for a Republican, their personal lives are none of my business.

    It's pretty sad for the Edwards family. My prayers go up for Jon Edwards and especially Elizabeth. I hate to watch any family under attack regardless of their politics. I pray Jon confesses, repents, and some day is restored.

    I think Ewards is a lying POS and probably is the father. What he does in his private life does not concern me near a much as him dragging his cancer striken wife thru the Democratic nominating process. That's the part that classifies him as a scumbag in my opinion. I feel for her and her family but I could care less what happens to him.

    The Enquirer is seldom wrong on this kind of thing. Now, the horoscopes are entirely different story. :p
