Skip to comments.John Edwards' Main Source of Hush Money Was 101-Year-Old Woman
Posted on 05/04/2012 8:03:51 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement
The key person funding John Edwards' cover up of his affair was a 101-year-old philanthropist who had swooned over the Democratic presidential contender in 2007.
Rachel "Bunny" Mellon was so taken with Edwards after meeting him at her Virginia estate in 2005 that she lent her personal plane to take him home to North Carolina, her confidante Bryan Huffman told the jury at Edwards' trial.

Sounds like the Producers. Maybe we should call him John “Bialystock” Edwards.
Hold me, touch me..
This is going to be sick.
Yes indeed. Ann Coulter was persecuted as she fought a public battle to truly portray how rotten Edwards was, way before the Enquire exposed him. This Edwards story in particular defined him in all of his sanctimonius ... and chilling ... phoniness ....
"(Kerry) was even queasier about Edwards after they met. Edwards had told Kerry he was going to share a story with him that he'd never told anyone else -- that after his son Wade had been killed, he climbed onto the slab at the funeral home, laid there and hugged his body, and promised that he'd do all he could to make life better for people, to live up to Wade's ideals of service. Kerry was stunned, not moved, because, as he told me later, Edwards had recounted the same exact story to him, almost in the exact same words, a year or two before -- and with the same preface, that he'd never shared the memory with anyone else. Kerry said he found it chilling, and he decided he couldn't pick Edwards unless he met with him again."
Makes me kinda sad that he did not get elected. Can you imagine the absolute roof cave-in that would be happening to the Democrat Party right now if this sort of stuff was coming out about their sitting POTUS? They would not recover for two or three decades.
This scum is unbelieveable.
To think that he asked her for $50,000,000 and wanted her to put up her HOME??!!
Who else believes that if she had gone along with it, he would have called in the chips and put her out on the street?
For the poor people, of course. ‘Cause Johnny, who fancies a basketball court, private planes and getting millions of dollars from an old lady to finance his out of wedlock child conceived while his wife was dying and paying THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS for a guru to spiritually cleansed his mistress’s Reuben sandwich is all about us po’ folk. (’Course, he couldn’t be bothered to put up his own money.)
Johnny, I believe you will help change the English language. From now on, ‘pokey’ will not just refer to jail but to your cellmates’ pasttimes with you in the very near future- who all have, hopefully, had to deal with schysters like you who have tried to rip off their grandmothers.
My error: late (not last).
>>>Sounds like the Producers. Maybe we should call him John Bialystock Edwards.<<<
I thought the same thing. I wonder if they played The Contessa and Rudolfo?
Had Edwards won the Presidency, the Democrats would rally around him, and employ the Bill Clinton defense: "It's private behavior"....."It's only about sex"....."this has nothing to do with his ability to do his job"...."this is just a distraction, the American people want us to focus on more important issues", etc.
You wouldn't expect a democrat to actually spend their own money on anything, would you? Why would they start now?
We're talking left wing elitism here. To them, that "old rich hag" was expendable.
I had a much older female friend that told me the same thing.
Here's a picture of a young John Edwards and beautiful wife Elizabeth. Too bad she got old and sick on him.
>> Ann Coulter was persecuted as she fought a public battle to truly portray how rotten Edwards was <<
Word to the wise: Ann Coulter is now a non-person as far as FR is concerned. I hope you don’t get zotted for giving her a favorable mention.
Haha. I'm not worried. Syncro has my back (and he'd go first).

ROLLING STONE(d), 2007:
If he weren’t rich, handsome and so well married, you might feel a little sorry for John Edwards. Never before in the 231-year history of our republic have the inalienable traits that Edwards possesses — his fair skin and a Y chromosome — been anything but a prerequisite for presidential politics. Today, his race and gender stand a chance of derailing his campaign altogether. “There’s a lot of democrats who would like to make history,” says Markos Moulitsas, founder of the influential online forum Daily Kos. “The party is anxious to nominate a black or a woman,” agrees Dick Morris, the former adviser to Bill Clinton. “You have to sign off on either of those two options before you even get to voting for Edwards.”
Rolling Stone then established the bonafides of John Edwards as the “Real Liberal.”
...Flying below the radar, the former vice-presidential candidate is pulling off a feat that Democratic consultants have long considered impossible: staking out the most progressive platform among the viable candidates while preserving an aura of electability...
Word to the wise: Ann Coulter is now a non-person as far as FR is concerned.A "word to the wise" must come from the wise to be infused with wisdom. (That's where the word that "wise" comes from)
It's a bit foolish to speak for the whole of Free Republic in such a myopic manner.
