Former presidential candidate John Edwards is out of luck if he hoped that the extramarital affairs of Gov. Mark Sanford and Sen. John Ensign would take peoples minds off his own cheating scandal.
Former Edwards aide Andrew Young says the ex-senator and his former mistress, Rielle Hunter, once made a sex tape, according to someone who has seen Youngs book proposal.
St. Martins Press just inked a deal with Young, who also says in his proposal that, contrary to his public statement last year, he is not the father of Hunters infant daughter Edwards is. Edwards has denied that.
Young says that his belief in Edwards ran so deep that he agreed to take the fall for the candidate, inviting the pregnant Hunter to live with him, his wife, Cheri, and their three children. Later, after Hunter delivered the baby, Young and his family moved to a different home in California.
While he was unpacking, Young discovered a videocassette, according to the book pitch. Hunter had been hired by the Edwards campaign to videotape the candidates movements, but this one is said to have shown him taking positions that werent on his official platform.
The purported sex tape confirmed to Hunter that Edwards was even more reckless than he thought.
According to our source, Hunter confided to Young that she and Edwards talked about getting married should the candidates cancer-stricken wife, Elizabeth, pass away, even discussing what music theyd play at their wedding.
Elizabeth Edwards is said to hold Young partly to blame for her husbands affair, since Young knew it was going on and sometimes used his cell phone to conference the senator and his girlfriend. Young has told friends that, in revenge, Elizabeth arranged for the media to learn about a youthful misdeameanor in which Young was arrested for stealing a sign from a biker bar.
Elizabeth also suspects Young stole the baseball card collection of her late son, Wade, according to a source who says that she told Young in an e-mail that other former staff members have passed lie detector tests.
Youngs proposal, which one editor said was impossible to put down, also contends that Sen. Edwards frequently clashed with running mate John Kerry during their 2004 race for the White House. And before Edwards owned up to his affair with Hunter, Young says he told him that Barack Obama had promised hed make him attorney general if he didnt pick him as his 2008 running mate.
Elizabeth Edwards and Youngs agent had no comment. An e-mail to John Edwards assistant wasnt returned. Hunter couldnt be reached.
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. ..."
Or, from the Edwards camp itself...

Just when I thought the guy could not be any more stupid......
A “short” film-snort!
"How about a REAL Lewinsky?"
Please, God - no pictures.
AGREED! NO PICTURES ON THIS ONE!!!!!
For Andrew Young to claim to be the father was also stupid and dishonorable act - unless he also had sex with the mistress. First there is the obvious racial factor, then DNA.
It sure would of swept in Conservatives if it was true and he was the Pres
Consider the torture possibilities: “PLEASE! I’ll tell you everything! Just make it stop!”...
WOW! if true, that is REALLY rash!
If Edwards was honorable he should take a wakizashi and commit seppuku! For sheer stupidity and utter myopia to the possible ramifications of his act.
This makes Sanford look like Mensa material to be honest! How does someone in a high profile position make a sex-tape? What if it got stolen, misplaced, copied ...whatever. To be honest, Edwards has to be the dumbest politico this side of Jacob Nzuma (the South African prez who, after raping a HIV positive lady, believed that a shower immediately after would suffice to ensure nothing happened). Well, Edwards may not be a rapist like Nzuma, but he sure is as dumb!
Thankfully he is Dem.
Is this Andrew Young the former mayor of Atlanta?
I don’t think this Andrew Young is the black politician.
>>If he weren't rich, handsome and so well married (empahasis mine--rr), you might feel a little sorry for John Edwards. Never before in the 231-year history of our republic have the inalienable traits that Edwards possesses -- his fair skin and a Y chromosome -- been anything but a prerequisite for presidential politics. Today, his race and gender stand a chance of derailing his campaign altogether. (snip) But counting Edwards out would be a big mistake. Flying below the radar, the former vice-presidential candidate is pulling off a feat that Democratic consultants have long considered impossible: staking out the most progressive platform among the viable candidates while preserving an aura of electability.
Makes me wonder if JFK made tapes too. Hmmmm.
How much would I have to pay not to see it?
So is this how he and his mistress will be making their next paychecks? After all, he is an ambulance-chasing attorney which is one step below hooker.
Don’t knock it, that tape could come in handy if you ever need to induce vomiting.
This is some other Andrew Young (Andrew Aldridge Young, as opposed to Andrew Jackson Young, the well known black politician). The article should have made that more clear.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Andrew Young (political operative)
This article is about Andrew Aldridge Young, a political operative active in the 2008 Democratic primaries. For other men named Andrew Young, see Andrew Young (disambiguation).
Andrew Aldridge Young (born March 23, 1966) is a United States political operative in the Democratic Party who was a key staff member in the John Edwards 2008 presidental campaign. Young came to prominence via a scandal in which he claimed paternity of Rielle Hunter’s child born on February 27, 2008. John Edwards had admitted a past affair with Hunter, but denied paternity of the baby.
Ho hum...doesn’t matter. He’s a RAT and thus protected. Nothing to see here...move along.
Now, Sanford, THAT’S A STORY!
As I understand it, about 90% of the tape involves Edwards combing and licking his hair into place.
That was in the days prior to Algore inventing the hand held video camera.
Video of John Edwards engaging in some self-foreplay.
The other 10% -
“Yes, Rielle, my tort!”
“I’m your deep pockets, depose me now!!!”
What a doofus. You do mean Mrs. Julie Andrews, don’t you?
That's a youtube that someone linked to. They were probably playing with words: "Julie" Edwards singing Julie Andrew's "I'm So Pretty".
“Julie” = John Edwards.
Julie Andrews is (or was) Mrs. Blake Edwards.

I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty and witty and bright!
And I pity
Any girl who isn’t me tonight.
I feel charming,
Oh, so charming
It’s alarming how charming I feel!
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I’m real.
See the pretty girl in that mirror there:
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face,
Such a pretty dress,
Such a pretty smile,
Such a pretty me!
I feel stunning
Feel like running and dancing for joy,
For I’m loved
By a pretty wonderful boy!
Ah, gotcha. The Breck Girl.
Thanks for the info.
