John Edwards admits fathering Hunterís child
msnbc ^ | January 21, 2010 | Lisa Myers and Michael Austin

Posted on 01/21/2010 4:34:40 AM PST by Second Amendment First

For the first time, John Edwards is publicly admitting that he is indeed the father of a 2-year-old daughter conceived with Rielle Hunter, a campaign videographer with whom he had an affair.

In a written statement provided exclusively to NBC News, the former North Carolina senator and Democratic presidential candidate says he’s taking responsibility for the child, Frances Quinn Hunter:

“I am Quinn’s father. I will do everything in my power to provide her with the love and support she deserves. I have been able to spend time with her during the past year and trust that future efforts to show her the love and affection she deserves can be done privately and in peace.

I’m sure he wishes his wife would just hurry up and die so he can live his life the way he wants to.

I’ll have to admit that I missed that he hadn’t already owned up to it. Any thinking person had already come to the conclusion that he was the father.

That all depends on Elizabeth's mood.

Perhaps recent stories were the first attempts at rebuilding his public image. But they sure don’t make her look like a saint.

Ms. Hunter should run for public office.

She eagerly got pregnant (at 40) with another woman’s husband.
She took money to keep quiet.
She had no concern for the poor child having to live with this betrayal down the road...or the Edwards’ children having to deal with it during their very young lives.

John Edwards, sperm donor and failed human being.

If you check the dates you will see that the baby was concieved more that 3 months after Elizabeth announced her cancer had returned.

Edwards has always claimed the affair occurred while his wife was in remission.

This guy is serial liar.

Rielle Hunter, Oct 12, 2007:

“The innuendoes and lies that have appeared on the internet and in the National Enquirer concerning John Edwards are not true, completely unfounded and ridiculous. My video production company was hired by the Edwards camp on a 6 month contract, which we completed December 31, 2006. When working for the Edwards camp, my conduct as well as the conduct of my entire team was completely professional.”

IIRC, he’s got his feet to the fire with a campaign finance investigation as to if campaign money was used to cover up the affair.

No he wanted it, he just knew he couldn’t win. So he immediately went to cutting a deal, then another and another. Finally he was willing to take the job of Postmaster General. And denied.

The reality of legally backed enforced child support payments.
Hunter was going after the moolah, and she was getting it.

He has no choice but capitulation.

He should admit he fabricated channeling the voices of dead children during his trial lawyer days.

No - his mop didn’t cause the problem, but I kind of doubt he’d be as appealing as a bald man. He’s not the type to pull that off!
