Skip to comments.New John Edwards Tell-All, In Case You Weren’t Already Disgusted Enough
Posted on 01/27/2010 8:32:45 AM PST by My Favorite Headache
Another day, another scandalous political book being leaked to the press. Im going to wager that after the Going Rogue deluge, followed by the Game Change deluge, the country may not have much more attention to give to the bad behavior of our pols particularly John Edwards. Nevertheless, heres the latest dirt on Edwards courtesy of his former aide Andrew Young, the guy who initially took responsibility for Rielle Hunters baby.
Someone over at the WSJ blog Washington Wire apparently managed to snag an early version of Andrew Youngs upcoming Edwards tell-all The Politician. Other juicy bits from the book have made their way into the media prior to this, courtesy of a leaked book proposal and an A-1 takedown at the New York Times, which noted among other things Edwards promise to Hunter that after his wife died, he would marry her in a rooftop ceremony in New York with an appearance by the Dave Matthews Band. To be honest, in the aftermath of Game Change revelations and Edwards own admission that he fathered Hunters child, most of these frankly seem rather tame (unless, of course, the book comes with a complimentary sex tape). Nonetheless, if youre not already entirely disgusted with Edwards these remaining tidbits should do the trick:
* According to Young, Hunter called him in May 2007 to say she was pregnant. Young says that when he informed Edwards, the senator told him to handle it, to which he replied: I cant handle this one. Young writes that Edward unloaded on Hunter as a crazy slut, said they had an open relationship, and put his paternity chances at one in three. Young says that Edwards asked him for help persuading Hunter to have an abortion. Young writes that Hunter believed the baby to be some kind of golden child, the reincarnated spirit of a Buddhist monk who was going to help save the world. * [Calling MoDo] Naturally thick and lustrous, his hair was a fixation with him. He insisted on using just one kind of shampoo HairTec Thick & Strong Shampoo for Fine, Fragile Hair, Young writes. He says that for years he or Edwards personally paid for the expensive haircuts rather than publicly list them as campaign expenses. He blamed the gaffe Edwards campaign committee picked up the tab for two $400 haircuts on new, inexperienced staff. * Keeping the affair running throughout the campaign wasnt easy. When I knew where the senator was staying, I made reservations in my own name, faxed copies of my credit card and state identification card, and told the hotel staff that my wife would be checking in on my account, Young writes. He said he paid for much of Hunters expenses out of his pocket, and Edwards promised reimbursement when they found wealthy campaign donors or when Elizabeth died and he no longer had to cover up such costs. Ill take care of you, Andrew, he quotes Edwards as saying. You know Im good for it.
John Edwards is the biggest scumbag on the face of the Earth.
so this billionaire is too cheap to pay for his own crazy mistress? LOL...I may have to buy the book just for the laughs.
Andrew Young comes across as a worthless POS....
I gotta take a shower after reading that.
I am not so much disgusted with Edwards as I am with nearly ALL members of the mainstream media who, for years, knew exactly who and what John Edwards was doing, Elizabeth’s playing along with a public image, and knowing reporting outright lies about the Edwards’ and John in particular all to protect and advance him.
All those RATs who swooned over him (especially da laydeez) are mortified, ashamed and embarrassed. Not.
Just the worst. I agree. I wonder what Dave Matthews has to say about this? LMAO!
Scumbag doesn’t really cover it.
Yet, TIME Magazine chooses to devote an article on whether Johnnycake’s reputation might be restored.
Typical Donk. All the same, no surprise here.
Why didn’t John Edwards just use some of his millions to have Hunter murdered? It would have solved all his problems...after all he is a great lawyer and he’d certainly be able to beat a murder rap. What a guy!
Further...anyone who couldn't recognize this prior to this latest scandal should have their right to vote revoked.
This is the sleazebucket that the DONKEYS wanted to put one heartbeat away from the Presidency.
The entire Edwards group including “Saint Elizabeth” are loathsome human beings. The media would have to been blind not to see the affair going on under their nose and yet chose to ignore it. The Edwards group could have caused a constitutional disaster and a failed presidency yet chose their own importance over the well being of the country. They should all rot.
Whatever happened to the good ol’ boy neighbor that Elizabeth hated so much (for the McCain signs and the stuff in his front yard)? I heard he sold his land and moved away. Too bad, he was a hoot. In Chicago, I’m modeling myself after him.
Shoot, Elizabeth was shooting for the whitehouse residence too.
And still has a huge following on Facebook...
