Dallas lawyer Fred Baron told The Dallas Morning News today that he made regular payments to the woman that former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards has confessed to having an affair with.
Mr. Baron, who was chairman of Mr. Edwards presidential campaign finance committee, said he paid money to Rielle Hunter to move from North Carolina to another location.

Wanna bet the came from the campaign funds? Probably well laundered, but from the campaign "war chest" originally.
Holy crap, is Baron admitting to a felony here?
Nope, nothing out of the ordinary here!
That is not Edward’s child? She has been around.
Gee will there be more revelations?
It’s a truism in politics and the public eye that you want to get all the bad news out there at once. You don’t want the constant drip drip drip of more leaks and more revelations making things worse. I figured he went public now to get this out of the way for the Dem. convention coming up. We’ll see............
Sorry. I did a search on Dallas, and this did not come up because the search criterion was set to Keywords, not Titles. Lessons learned.
Well you can rely on this. If Mr. Baron as Chairman of Edwards campaign drew a salary at all you couldn't attribute his payment to Ms. Hunter as anything else but coming from the campaign.
In reverse if he gave money to people to make a campaign contribution (which would exceed the legal max) it would legally be construed to have come from him.
Go to your room without supper!
Why do I get the feeling more hits are coming?
Those that don't.
I hope he used campaign funds donated by braindead lefty moonbats.
So that’s why Edwards thought there were Two Americas. He was leading a double life.
So has he! He has been around enough to know that most Demonrats are too stupid to figure out what others have with common sense.
Once he admitted to having the affair, the honorable thing would be been to claim the child, and perhaps any other children of hers with no father on the birth certificate. He has now thrown her under the bus.
“I hope he used campaign funds donated by braindead lefty moonbats.”
Doesn’t this put the lie to the spin I’ve been hearing all afternoon that this is a private matter between Edwards and his family? If he may have paid her off with campaign funds, this is not a private matter.
The sympathy I’ve heard expressed today on the talk shows and TV interviews for that scumbag Edwards is nauseating.
So, I take it you're saying that the screwing she got wasn't worth the screwing she got.
