John Edwards' mistress led a tabloid-grade life (Rielle Hunter)
AP via Yahoo ^ | May 13, 2012 | Jeffrey Collins and Michael Biesecker

Posted on 05/13/2012 2:07:09 PM PDT by EveningStar

Rielle Hunter's life had a lurid, supermarket-tabloid quality to it — full of deception, betrayal, reckless behavior and broken dreams — well before she became a party to one of the biggest lies in recent American political history.

Pretty much your average Democrat.

Hunter reminds me of Jenny from Forrest Gump before she got her act together.

Whoa wait a minute there AP and Yahoo.

When it comes to scandals this is hardly in the running.

Sure she got laid and had a child by Edwards but that doesn’t hold the light to Ted Kennedy and his murdering Mary Jo.How about the big lies John Kerry told to get his band aid medals, or the lie Obama told when he said he sat in Rev. Wrights Church and never heard a racist word.

Just last week Obama lied and said he had a great change of heart about same sex marriage, when we all knew how he felt long ago. The greatest lie in American history is sitting in the White House.His Birth Certificate is a lie.

Edwards was just another fool who let his pecker do his thinking.How many Congress critters are sitting on the Hill who have girlfriend and mistress’s and even same sex lovers?
Political lies are anathema and part of being a boil on the ass of America.

She’ll likely sell all book, tv, and cinema rights for a hefty price.

One of the best movies ever to show what happens in a liberal lifestyle...

Shift of blame from Edwards to Hunter select piece. When I see Edward's daughter accompanying him into court—after all he has put his family through, the wealthy elderly woman he was pretty much shaking down..I shake my head not understanding.

The scandal isn’t the scandal itself, the scandal was the media’s willful decision to NOT cover this story until the so-called tabloids dragged them kicking and screaming into covering it. Kinda like the Weiner wiener story.

Too bad for John Edwards that he handed the wheel over to John Thomas.

I have a question that one of you who is a lawyer might be able to answer. If the money Edwards and company got is deemed to be a gift used for keeping his girlfriend, and Edwards is therefore not convicted, would not the next question be “did they pay taxes on this gift”? Not declaring this money should be a big deal. The first guy who won “Survivor” went to prison for not declaring his million. Any opinions on this?

Yep, Asspress hid it all at election time and now comes out against the woman, to defend their little Democrat hero whom they all cheered for to be the veep. These bootlickers would have a little different focus if it were a GOP vice presidential candidate with this degree of scandal.

Please don't forget the biggest and most egregious lie of all:

The bent one pointing his bony finger at American and saying, “I did not have sex with that woman.....”

What a huge historical influence this had.

If word had gotten out sooner, John Boy is gone and Hillary marches to victory in Iowa, etc.

Baraq is just another senate commie.

... And they will hire Helen Thomas to play her in the movie.

Hunter was born Lisa Jo Druck. Her father was a prominent lawyer, and she lived a privileged life growing up in Florida. Hunter, who adopted her new name in 1994 while out in Hollywood, said both her parents cheated in their marriage.

Despite Hunter’s lack of filmmaking experience, the politician arranged a $250,000 contract for her to make a series of behind-the-scenes documentaries from the campaign trail.

Hunter went on the run with the aide and his wife. Edwards’ campaign finance chairman let them stay at his vacation mansion in Aspen, Colo., and paid for them to live in a $20,000-a-month manor in Santa Barbara, Calif. Hunter chose the location because it was close to her New Age spiritual adviser, Bob McGovern.
