According to WRAL in Raleigh, North Carolina, former U.S. Senator and Dmeocratic presidential candidate John Edwards is expected to admit that he is the father of his former mistress’ 18-month-old daughter.
You’ll remember Edwards admitted last August to having an affair with Rielle Hunter, who worked as a videographer on Edwards’ 2008 presidential campaign. Edwards has adamantly denied being the father of Hunter’s daughter Frances, saying his relationship with Hunter ended before the child was conceived. The name of the girl’s father isn’t disclosed on her birth certificate, and a former Edwards aide has previously admitted to being the father of Hunter’s daughter. According to WRAL, Edwards’ public admission could come before the end of a criminal investigation into whether campaign funds from Edwards’ presidential run in 2008 were illegally used to pay Rielle Hunter to keep her quiet about her affair with Edwards.
Obviously WRAL’s report hasn’t been substantiated, so there’s no telling if Edwards will in fact admit he’s the father of Rielle Hunter’s daughter, but even if he doesn’t admit he’s the father, he’s still a scumbag for having an affair on his cancer-stricken wife.
