John Edwards Scandal: Andrew Young Offered 'Gigantic' Sum for Sex Tape

Andrew Young Tells 'GMA' He Feared for His Life and Thought of Vince Foster

By SARAH NETTER

Feb. 1, 2010—

The former John Edwards aide who claims to have a sex tape of the one-time presidential candidate and his pregnant mistress said he'd been offered a "gigantic" amount of money to sell it.

Young also told "Good Morning America" today that after he broke with Edwards, tensions over the cover-up got so heated that he feared for his family's safety.

"For several months, I used to get up at 3 a.m. and walk around the house with a baseball bat and a knife," he said. During that time, Young said he had his three young children sleep with him and his wife.

That fear, he said, peaked during a car ride "out in the middle of nowhere" with Edwards. During that ride, "all I could think about was Vince Foster," Young said, referring to the former aide to President Clinton who committed suicide in a Washington, D.C., park. Foster's death has been the subject of conspiracy theorists who speculated that he was killed to cover up a White House scandal.

"Did I think Edwards was capable? No," Young said. "But was I scared, genuinely scared, for me and my family."

Who makes, acquires, and/or keeps a “sex tape”? These people are sick.

“Young told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that he “truly doesn’t understand” what Hunter is asking for.”

That’s the mark of a real SOB. She wants the tape back because it’s hers, and she doesn’t want him to sell or release it.

And he pretends he really “doesn’t understand” what she wants?

This guy is a real low life, too.

It is possible that the video tape belongs to the DNC or Edwards’ campaign.

The donors to his campaign coffers were actually paying for Hunter’s video services.

In addition to being a greedy, calculating groupie - Hunter was star-struck stupid.

Poor Quinn!

“What would have happened if Edwards had been elected President?”

It would have been a very bad thing for our nation.
People just need to keep that thought in mind.

The next time we hear that a candidate’s personal life is private and doesn’t affect their ability to do the job. Well yes it does, and this is the textbook case of why.

Andrew Young and his wife are as vile as is John Edwards. I was repulsed by the account of their actions on 20/20, and how they are whining about what happened as a result. They are pond scum without any morals.

To understand why the foster case was murder you must understand a little biology. When someone “Blows his brains out” There is a freaking huge amount of blood, because the heart continues to beat and pump the blood out of the hole in their head. There is a little thing in the heart called the S/A node that is sort of the pace maker for the heart.

Vince foster had a small trickle of blood out of his head. Meaning he was dead (heart had stopped) before the bullet was shot.

I’ve always said that politics is a cottage industry... lucky for anyone who can attach themselves to it, the politicians themselves, the media talking heads and wonks, all digging for gold. Too bad the general public, even myself, plays right into their money grubbing schemes.

I agree. It doesn’t mean they aren’t telling the truth. But what kind of people participate in a charade like that, to foist Edwards upon us, when they KNOW what a sleaze he is? Don’t get me wrong. I’m glad they’re exposing Edwards. But the only reason they’re doing it is because he kicked them off the gravy train. If Young were still on the pay roll, they would have gladly comtinued with the lies. What kind of woman would allow her husband to publicly take the fall as the father of baby produced by an affair? As for fearing for his life, I’m not buying it. It would have been much easier to off a pregnant mistress and he didn’t do that.

Hopefully, the bad guys coming for him are baseball pitchers, armed with a smaller knife.

Lib idiocy. "I'm terrified for my family's life, but I'm MORE terrified of getting a gun and learning to use it, so that I can protect them!"

My wife was enraged about that too, and about seeing Mrs. Young whining about their predicament after allowing her family to be disgraced (falsely) for money. The videos with her yelling "Christmas in Aspen!!!" were vomit-inducing. They are both revolting.

*** It is possible that the video tape belongs to the DNC or Edwards’ campaign. ***

No.

*** The donors to his campaign coffers were actually paying for Hunter’s video services. ***

Irrelevant. If she took it, she owns it.
All images taken by a 'Photographer' (Stills or Video) belong by US Copyright Laws to him, or her, period - end(1).

(1) In the 'olden days' a Photographer would have to put a little copyright stamp © on a print. No longer, now the copyright (ownership) is implied just by the act of taking the picture, or video.

Ditto for those old 'Model Release Forms'. They were really a 'feel good' gesture on the part of the Photographer. They had the legal authority of an Obama EO (/s). The Model 'owned' nothing, and never did. (I still have a pack of them in an old camera bag) (The Forms, not Models)

*** In addition to being a greedy, calculating groupie - Hunter was star-struck stupid. ***

Yes on all counts.
But - being a 'Photographer' is somewhat like being a Congressman, no IQ Test is required :-)

[I know there's a new fangled term of 'Videographer', but that is just soooo gay]

The guy is no doubt a low form of scum. But it does give us all a little peek at what those inside political circles thought of the the Vince Foster "suicide".

They didn't buy it either, which tells us all we really need to know about many in the political class.

It sounds like Davis was confirming the "conspiracy theorists" to me.

I think you mean Young. I suppose that Andrew Young, as a Democrat insider, had heard the truth about Vince Foster from credible sources, and was duly scared. Yet the MSM authoress of this article persists in the fiction that Foster "committed suicide." And, according to Ms. Netter, only kooky "conspiracy theorists" can have "speculated" that Foster "was killed to cover up a White House scandal." But that is the same old theme we've heard from official Washington and its MSM toadies since Foster's death in 1993.

Upon review of all the available evidence - circumstantial, physical, and forensic - in the Vince Foster case, the only logical conclusion is that Foster was murdered, and the only way that could have happened is that the crime involved more than one person. There's nothing kooky about conspiracy theories when the evidence forces the logical conclusion that a conspiracy actually did occur! The MSM "suicide" story about Foster's death is nothing but an old fairy tale by now.
