EVEN BY TRIAL LAWYER STANDARDS, EDWARDS A REAL SLEAZEBAG

EVEN BY TRIAL LAWYER STANDARDS, EDWARDS A REAL SLEAZEBAG
August 13, 2008


The good news: DNA testing has confirmed that John Edwards is not the father of Rielle Hunter's baby.

The bad news: The father is Bill Clinton.

Ha ha -- just kidding! It's almost impossible to get pregnant by having the type of sex Bill Clinton prefers.

Also, by now, everyone has heard the news that Edwards' mistress, Rielle Hunter, has refused to grant a paternity test.

I wonder if Edwards knew that when he was making his chesty offer to take a paternity test? Edwards gushed to ABC's Bob Woodruff: "I would welcome participating in a paternity test, be happy to participate in one ... happy to take a paternity test and would love to see it happen."

As Edwards knows, our paternity laws were written by Gloria Steinem, so if the mother doesn't want a paternity test, it can't happen. So when Woodruff asked if he was going to actually take the paternity test soon, Edwards quickly noted, "I'm only one side of the test."

With Rielle in on the scam, Edwards could boldly demand a paternity test and then self-righteously defend his mistress's decision to refuse a paternity test. How dare you gainsay this woman's right to her privacy! Because if there's one person who's gone the extra mile to keep Hunter from becoming a public figure, it's John Edwards.

Edwards is closely following the Kennedy model of responding to charges of misconduct. First, admit only as much as can be currently proved. Second, get the other party to block any further investigation. I guess he really is "Kennedy-esque"!

Ann may want to go back to law school.

When an unmarried woman gives birth to a child, a man can file a legal suit for paternity and get a court-ordered paternity test. Even under the most liberal interpretations, once the baby is actually born, it and the potential fathers have rights.

Edwards will get right on that as soon as he reads this thread.

Democrats are always claiming to have the Kennedy magic, but, once again, another Kennedy-wannabe falls short. To be a real Kennedy, John, you have to kill her.

Annie has a bigger pair than just about anyone writing these days.

You are right about the man’s rights but only if he wants it. If he doesn’t want to know the results, if the woman is not on state support, and/or if the man and woman have agreed as to the finances and visitation rights, then there is no need for a paternity test and the woman can block it. What would be gained from the paternity test at this point? The only possible advantage is inheritance rights and I am not sure but what the father has already made arrangements for that contingency. At this point, it would only further tarnish Edwards and probably impair his earnings and therefore the kid’s and mother’s support payments. She has no reason to grant the rights and the father undoubtedly doesn’t want to publicly confirm what he already knows.

I wonder if some jurisdictions might require the putative father to first file an acknowldgement of paternity as a condition precedent to finding standing to request a court order for blood or DNA paternity test . Whatever , Ann is right , Edwards and this Hunter person are acting in concert .

What if there is a different father’s name on the birth certificate or in the case of this situation, no fathers name listed at all on the document?

Similarly, Edwards aggressively offered to take a paternity test, knowing that the New Age hippie chick who still thinks she's going to marry him would not hurt him by allowing a paternity test. Edwards certainly is adept at reading stupid women, or as his campaign called them, "the base."

I believe that in most states the father’s name can only be put on the birth cert. of an unmarried mom if said father signs an acknowledgment of paternity (or a subsequent paternity test proves he is the father).

...Democrats are always claiming to have the Kennedy magic, but, once again, another Kennedy-wannabe falls short.

To be a real Kennedy, John, you have to kill her. - Ann Coulter

Wow!

And, how about THIS zinger:

... According to Senatorial Privilege: The Chappaquiddick Cover-up by Leo Damore, the evidence suggested that Kopechne died gasping for breath in the car while Teddy Kennedy was busy trying to convince various people to say that they were driving his car.

There were lots of houses nearby with lights on, but Kennedy avoided them after he escaped from the car, so he could sneak back to his hotel undetected and begin establishing an alibi.

Evidently, Kennedy is better than Edwards at sneaking into and out of hotels. - Ann Coulter

Be careful around those Vallejo moonbats. No telling how long the depleted and overpaid VPD will take to respond.

I lived the first 25 years of my life in Vallejo. Hope I never see that hell hole again.

I think this entire article is unfair to sleazebags... They don’t deserve to be compared with John Edwards.

Wow! Ann as always winning friends. I admire her for having the guts to say it.

Dern laptop with no backspace key.

I was going to suggest using the old Ctrl-H but that just brings up 'history' under Internet Explorer. :=)

Have you tried using the arrow keys to position the cursor and then the delete key to remove a letter ahead of the cursor? While it's a bit inconvenient, it should work.

Another Edwards column by Ann? Meh.

I guess he really ticked her off when he sent his wife after her. Come to think of it, the Silk Pony was probably philandering at the very moment Elizabeth was giving Ann a phone call while on TV!
