John Edwards Mess: Baby's 1st Birthday Picture
Fox News ^ | March 5, 2009 | Roger Friedman

Posted on 03/05/2009 6:28:27 AM PST by Zakeet

John Edwards’ ex-lover, Rielle Hunter, is not writing a book or giving interviews. Edwards' wife, Elizabeth, however, is doing just the opposite.

Here is a picture of Frances Quinn Hunter, whose last name should be Edwards, according to sources. It’s from her first birthday, on Feb. 27, just one week ago. With her is her mother, Rielle Hunter, the filmmaker and ex-lover of former Sen. John Edwards.

Edwards has admitted the affair, but denied that the baby is his. There is no father’s name on Frances Quinn’s birth certificate.

Hunter is said to be upset about a story in the National Enquirer this week promoting a new book by Edwards’ wife, Elizabeth, due in May. Called “Resilience: Reflections on the Burdens and Gifts of Facing Life's Adversities,” the self-help manual is said to address in some way her husband's affair with Hunter.

It’s unknown whether Elizabeth Edwards, diagnosed with terminal cancer, knows or acknowledges that Frances was fathered by her husband.

The photo speaks for itself. Readers can look at it and decide. Hunter already knows the answer.

John Edwards awarded 'Father of the Year'
Democrat received honor about 8 months before alleged love child born

Where was John Edwards around the time his alleged "love child" Frances Quinn Hunter was conceived?

The senator was in New York – receiving his Father of the Year Award.

Edwards accepted his June 27, 2007, honor from the Father's Day/Mother's Day Council exactly eight months before the child was born Feb. 27, 2008, according to a birth certificate obtained by the Charlotte Observer.

Before beginning his Father of the Year acceptance speech, Edwards told an adoring crowd, "I hate to admit it, but I am not the best parent in my family. ..."

Sounds like the lovely John Edwards has dumped his child.
He was right - there ARE two Americas...
The one he wants us to see, and the real one...

John is just another lawyer with blow dried hair, who speaks out of the side of his mouth and over consumes..... He lives in a mansion with his equally greedy wife - while his child lives off “the generosity of strangers and taxpayers”...

John as most liberals - is a real pig.

Oh man, you got that right. It isn’t tough to imagine the media slobber-storm if, say, Dick Cheney had a “love child.” Geesh...they’d dedicate an entire cable channel to nonstop coverage of it.

LOL! My first thought, too ... until I realized it was just the "Fox News" overlay on the pic.

I believe the allegation is that he is paying child support, just through some middleman so his name is not publicly attached to it. Why else would Ms. Hunter keep mum about his paternity?

What a beautiful little baby.

Edwards hasn’t dumped his child. If he had, mom would be writing a book about it. She’s getting support from somewhere, maybe some big Dem donors.

The baby looks like Edwards. I believe Hunter was paid to keep the father's name off the birth certificate.

Horrible situation for the innocent baby.

The tyke is a little too young to tell, but the forehead is reminiscent...

“That baby is not good looking, surely it does not belong to John Edwards.”

Please remember how much time John Edwards spends primping in the mirror. The baby has better things to do during the day.

Except for the length of her hair, the baby looks very much like John Edward’s sister in the photo at #32.

Cute kid.

Who’s bankrolling Hunter these days ? Fred Baron died a while back so someone else must be picking up the job.

"Edwards hasn’t dumped his child. If he had, mom would be writing a book about it. She’s getting support from somewhere, maybe some big Dem donors."

The article clearly states otherwise....truthful or not.
I wouldn't doubt that Mrs. Edwards has threatened Little John's dinky if he spends any of the family money on his little "bastard"....

This is from the article, and states clearly that his Baby Mommy is having financial problems....

"So far Hunter’s behavior has been admirable for a woman in her situation. She hasn’t gone to the press, or given interviews, despite being left in the lurch financially by Edwards. She and baby Frances have been living off the kindnesses of friends since her benefactor, an Edwards supporter, died suddenly last fall. After that, her money was cut off, and the lease expired on the house she’d been renting."

If true - Edwards is lower than I initially believed and I ranked him lower than whale shit which, is on the bottom of the ocean....
