John Edwards Has Proposed to Rielle Hunter, National Enquirer Says
AOL News ^ | January 6, 2011 | Christopher Weber

Posted on 01/06/2011 4:03:52 PM PST by Pinkbell

John Edwards has proposed to his mistress Rielle Hunter, The National Enquirer reported Thursday.

A source told the tabloid that the disgraced former senator asked Hunter to marry him shortly after issuing a statement last year admitting that he was the father of her daughter, Frances Quinn.

Edwards, a one-time presidential candidate, "is buying a luxury $3.5 million beachfront home where they can live happily ever after with their love child," the Enquirer said.

The couple will wed this summer, according to the tabloid.

It was the Enquirer that first broke the story of the affair between Edwards and Hunter, who worked on his presidential campaign. The Huffington Post pointed out that while the Enquirer accurately reported the romance, the publication posted a nearly identical story last year about a planned Edwards-Hunter wedding -- which was later denied.

Wow. I guess he was just waiting for Elizabeth to die if this is true. He's probably salty she left him out of the will. Good for her.

I think, if true, John Edwards will get what he deserves.

"...Good for her."

At this point, I think I'd rather be him.

In the contest for the most sleazy, underhanded, despicable major politician in US history, Aaron Burr committed treason, but John is making a good showing based on the sheer volume of crass actions he is taking.

LOL! Although it's a stretch to call John-boy a "major" politician.

The National Enquirer has been right about Edwards so far. The main thing they proved is that he’s a dirtbag.

Yep, the will.
He is getting a childish sort of revenge.

Sooo, we have a guy who cheated on his sick wife, with a woman who was willing to have sex with a married man who has a wife with cancer and now the two of them will get married.

Sounds like a match made in heav....well, somewhere to me.

How dare you say that. He is so-good looking that many democrats will be unable to resist voting for him.

Sorry, I was trying to pretend to think like a liberal rat. Just can't do it. You are correct he is nothing, but then who thought a first term senator was Presidential material?

The National Enquirer usually gets it right. Plus a wife cannot be forced to testify agains’t her husband.

You know, he did a lousy thing for starters. A child came into the world because of his actions and he denied that he was her father. Maybe this is a chance for him to make it right. We neither have nor will ever respect him, but it would be good for Quinn if her parents were married to each other.

That said, I wonder if this has anything to do with the upcoming indictment.

‘Former Aides For John Edwards Appear In Court’

12/2/10

Raleigh, NC — “Two former aides for John Edwards have made appearances at a federal courthouse where a grand jury is investigating the two-time presidential candidate.

Former spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri spent about an hour at the Raleigh courthouse Thursday. Former deputy campaign manager Jonathan Prince spent four hours. Neither commented when leaving.

A grand jury has been looking into Edwards’ campaign finances for more than a year, bringing in former aides and mistress Rielle Hunter for testimony.”

This is a classic case of letting the little head do the thinking for the big one.It's compounded by the fact that the heads belong to an elitist scum of the first magnitude.

He couldn’t wait long enough to hardly put her body in the ground.

What a piece of excrement.

I am sure his nasty squeeze will use him for the bucks and cheat on him.

He deserves whatever he gets.
