Edwards thought '1-in-3 chance' he was father of Rielle's unborn child, ex-aide testifies
foxnews.com ^ | 4/24/12 | Jonathan Serrie/AP

Posted on 04/24/2012 1:53:55 PM PDT by ColdOne

John Edwards apparently didn't think too highly of his mistress.

According to testimony Tuesday from Edwards' former top confidante, the ex-senator didn't give himself great odds when he doubted that he was the father of Rielle Hunter's unborn child.

"He said that she was a crazy slut, and it was a one-in-three chance that it was his child," Young testified.

Whether or not those were the odds, Edwards made a bad bet. After denying for months that he was the father, even after he copped to the affair, Edwards has acknowledged paternity for their daughter who is now 4 years old.

I have known Andrew since kindergarten. Never in a million years I would have ever guessed he would have ever gotten interested in politics.

Clearly impossible, a Democrat would never call a woman a slut, particularly not the mother of his child.

Andrew is the aide testifying. He’s the one who carried the payments to Rielle and who claimed he was the father at one point. He also had Rielle move in with him and his wife. This did not go well.

Can’t blame you. It was pretty disgusting.

And then, after Elizabeth died, Rielle demanded that her daughter have a part in the other daughter’s wedding that Elizabeth had planned before her death. Makes you wonder what other bad taste antic Rielle can think up? I’m with the poster who says we should pray for the child. She doesn’t deserve such parents.

From what I've read about the guy, he struck me as more of an Edwards groupie than a political ideologue. He put up with a lot more than I believe a typical party operative would have. And the way he described Edwards, and how much he believed in him, bordered on teenage girl/boy band adoration.

I couldn't tell if it was Edwards adulation or if it was power attainment adulation. You see it in a lot of folks who volunteer for a campaign. Do they do it because they have an unhealthy identification with the person or because they want to be at the candidates right hand then they take power? Either way,it's a heaping helping of not good. Campaigns have had this problem for a long time - they need warm bodies as volunteers and lowly paid staff, they are so grateful for anything they can get, they do nothing in terms of vetting staff.

Now in this particular instance - I would say that Edwards is infinitely worse than any of his staffers, and anything they may have done. To think that some advocated 8 years ago that he should be 1 heartbeat away from the Presidency is just chilling.

John Edwards did not consent to making a baby. He though all libs had abortions when pregnancies were unplanned.

It was a radio host of a children's show, Uncle Don, at WLS in Chicago in the Thirties. It wasn't rumored, but real. I believe Uncle Don lost his show because of that.

&&&
You didn’t miss much. (Saw it on Broadway with one of my sisters as a favor to her.) Had I known the story line, I would have begged off.

I was truly surprised to read the program notes at this musical, as I was sure that someone else had just pieced together a story around ABBA hits. But, no, the lazy ABBA members just recycled their old “hits”; there was very little new material.

So, although this show offends sufficiently with its obnoxious plot line, it also is an insult artistically.

This sister just loves Broadway, and I love her dearly, but, after that one, I said I would not set foot in NYC again. (We have since gone to the Hippodrome in Baltimore, though. I live in MD, and she lives in PA.)

"He said that she was a crazy slut, and it was a one-in-three chance that it was his child," Young testified.

Note to those considering a political career: A woman who is a crazy slut may not be the best romantic partner to select when cheating on your wife. Alternatively: If the odds are one in three that you will be the father if a girl gets pregnant, you ought to avoid her like an STD plague and make those odds zero in three.

Appropriate to absolutely nothing, but you reminded me of other similar moments, I was working at CBS the night a director’s voice yelling, “what the F**K is going on downstairs?” was aired to the entire eastern time zone. There was also the night the Sonny and Cher Show ended three minutes early and the intercom audio from one of the videotape techs saying, “I’ve got the F**King finale cued up again” got on the air. Also did a bunch of kids shows where the hosts were usually drunk, lots of ribald stuff there. So the rumored story may be a myth, but it’s plenty plausable.

John Edwards was a PRESIDENTIAL nominee who was held HIGHER in regard by the MSM than Hillary in that they kept him in the race to dilute Hillary's support.

They KNEW he had a bastard child and covered it up.

The 2008 election was rigged by journalistic malfeasance and rigged debates by 101% Democrat activist moderators.

True, and on top of this we had the WORST candidate ever. Spineless, stiff and afraid to exploit Obamas weaknesses. AND McCain actually thought the media would be nice to him because they always supported him in his battles against conservative Republicans. WRONG!!!!
