Posted on 07/25/2008 12:37:34 PM PDT by seanrobins
A hotel security guard told FOXNews.com he intervened this week between a man he identified as former Sen. John Edwards 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 Edwards whom he did not immediately recognize in a hotel men's room early Tuesday morning in a literal tug-of-war with reporters on the other side of the door.
"What are they saying about me?" the guard said Edwards asked.
"His face just went totally white," the guard said, when Edwards was told the reporters were shouting out questions about Edwards and Rielle Hunter, a woman the National Enquirer says is the mother of his child.
The guard said he escorted Edwards, who was not a registered guest at the hotel, out of the building after 2 a.m. Edwards did not say anything while he was escorted out, said the guard, adding that at times the reporters on the scene were "rough on him," sticking a camera in his face and shouting questions.

Paging Gary Hart- please call the Edwards campaign staff ... stat
It seems to me yhis entire episode should about round out Edwards’ resume regarding Democrat VP front runner status.
Has this been reported on any other network.....? I didn’t think so.
Ain’t it funny how when Larry Craig got caught trying to solicit a cop for sex in an airport bathroom.....it was on MSM network tv FOR THREE SOLID WEEKS?
Oh...I forgot, Craig is a Republican.
Different standard for Dems.
Not only the Breck girl will be affected.
Obama's about to get knocked out of the 24/7 cycle if this Edward's thing takes over (which it will if there's photos).
>>>It seems to me yhis entire episode should about round out Edwards resume regarding Democrat VP front runner status.
You mean - of course, that this should cinche his choice AS Obama’s running mate!
Hillary! Monkey Business... < /Gary Hart's boat reference, nothing even remotely racist here, no siree>
>>>Has this been reported on any other network.....? I didnt think so.
No... Plus the LA Times has imposed a “gag order” as to coverage of the story entirely:
GAWD! No spine, and no juevos. I would have given anything to witness that hysterical little girly-man cowering in the Men's Room. “Sorry sweet cheeks. You'll have to leave. This is the MEN'S room.” LOL!
Here’s a snippet from the National Enquirer’s reporting on the aftermath of the breaking of the story:
>>> One political source divulged: “His advisors told him they were furious that this had been brought out by the NATIONAL ENQUIRER right when Obama is considering whether he’s V.P. material with the Democratic National Convention (Aug. 25-28 in Denver) only weeks away.
>>> “From what I hear, John was read the riot act by his people. The fallout from this could cost him the job of running mate. They told him Obama doesn’t want to pick someone and be embarrassed by the choice. This ‘bimbo eruption’ at this critical time will do him absolutely no good.
>>> “While his people are not trying to tell him how to live his personal life, this baggage isn’t going to help him convince Obama that he’s the right guy to be his veep.”
What do they mean “could cost him” the VP slot? Does Edwards really think that even BHO or David Axelrod are stupid enough to go with him after this?
It seems it'd be quite effective plastered on the front cover at the check-out of grocery and department stores across the nation.
I hope people don't start thinking or start accusing the two of being one in the same. Being that Fox is the only one beside the NE to report on this...
Let me see if I’ve got this straight.
Johnny Edwards a prior demcRAT VP loser thinks for a nanosecond that he’s on the “short-list” for VP? He’s delusional.
I hope That Edwards gets run through the grinder on this. He’s a scumbag and a hypocrite and has earned ever second of twisting in the wind.
What are they saying about me?
You left your comb and hair spray out in the hall.
What ya have to take in to account is that this child was incubating about the time Edwards went before the nation to announce his “life long partner” had terminal cancer. Both pleaded for our support votes and prayers.
That means this scumbag was boinking this whore at the same time acting proper with his cancer ridden wife.
Course he is a lawyer. One of the worst of this profession that is chock full of disgusting types. He sues baby doctors for trying to do their job.
How do you feel now Mrs. Edwards? Do ya still believe your dirtbag husbands lies? Can you be that stupid or are you like Mrs. Spitzer in that you’d rather your little man be off doing whores and at least leaving you alone?
October 07 (I should read my own posts!)
John the john hiding in the john.
