Photo Shows Edwards, Hunter Together At Dallas Tour Stop
NBC 5 ^ | August 8, 2008

Posted on 08/08/2008 4:50:26 PM PDT by notes2005

FORT WORTH, Texas -- A photograph taken by an NBC 5 employee shows former presidential candidate John Edwards with his videographer, Rielle Hunter, 42, on a stop in Dallas in 2006.

The pair were in North Texas during Edwards' book tour.

Edwards, who won praise and sympathy as he campaigned side-by-side with his cancer-stricken wife, Elizabeth, admitted Friday he had had an extramarital affair with Hunter.

Hunter was working for Edwards producing videos for his campaign.

Edwards said he made a serious error in judgment when he had an affair and is ashamed of his conduct.

That’s because she was pregnant at the time and likely believing he would marry her once Elizabeth died.

They both have on long sleeves and she’s wearing a coat, so probably either very early 2006 or very late 2006.

As I have observed in numerous cases; she KNEW that all she needed was to let him get her pregnant, and she was very nicely set for life.

Sorry to sound so mercenary, but.......hey, follow the money!

Right you are. Kerry in drag.
They’re waiting for Rudy to show up.
But, really, I think she’s pretty, happy and relaxed in this picture. She’s almost glowing.
Edwards, on the other hand (who must know she’s in the picture), looks like he’s about to blast into space, literally.
He’s nervous and earnest at the same time.
It took me a moment to realize that he’s wearing a mic.

OK, the baby was born not too long ago.

If he told Elizabrth about the affair and confessed ... would Reille still be on his staff?

It's real nice he was defending his wife right around the time his fling would have found out she was pregnant. /sarc

No, Edward's the lying schmuck is sorry that he got caught, thus has to apologize and say he made a serious error. ASHAMED of his conduct?????????? Give me a freaking break. This is a badge of honor for the whoring dimocrat party members. Just like Jessie and his love child. If this were a Republican senator, it would be lead news on all the cable stations, including FOX, and damning the guilty republican to burn in hell for doing this. They would get tons of mileage out of it. Now, the MSM are assisting in the cover up.

Isn't that how she *GOT* pregnant?

I guess he had to refer questions to the Dept. of Internal Affairs...

Oh, my..... John Edwards and Chris Matthews going on about how awful it was that Ann Coulter did not express shame...... the irony is too rich...... maybe the lying huckster John Edwards can spend some time and energy expressing his own SHAME for awhile now......


MATTHEWS: Elizabeth had one — I think Elizabeth may have made one strategic error last night. That’s assuming that she could get Ann Coulter to express shame.

J. EDWARDS: I don’t think she has any shame. There’s no doubt about that. And her response to any effort to raise the dialogue, to talk about things that people care about, is to attack in a mean, hateful, mean-spirited way. I think that’s just the way she behaves. That’s who she is. And I think that’s a lot of what we see from these people who are just — that are crazy. I mean...

MATTHEWS: Yes.

J. EDWARDS: I mean, there’s nothing remotely mainstream about them. And normal people are repelled by them.

Wolf Blitzer is hosting Larry King alive and interviewing the spokeswoman for the Edwards. The spokeswoman, Jennifer Palmieri, said that Mrs Edwards will not be speaking at the convention, that she and John will be at home as this has been a very trying time.
Wolf is actually doing a pretty good job getting into this sorted affair, so far.

What timing - that interview with the fawning Chrissy Matthews would have been within a matter of weeks of the time that Raelle’s baby was conceived...... by someone other than John Edwards, of course...... gotta hand it to Edwards, though, he does have plenty of ‘chutzpah’ ..... going on about how awful and without shame Ann Coulter is, all the while he’s been shtupping his mistress, paying her campaign funds for make-work, and neglecting his cancer-ridden wife. Talk about someone without shame......

Wolf and the other Dems KNOW most Americans are disgusted by this latest fact that shows Democratic Party leaders are simply immoral liars.

They KNOW that for the Dems to “win” in Nov - both in the Presidency and the other elections - to get the “middle America” independent vote - they have to APPEAR to have something akin to “traditional” American values.

It is a show, a fakery.

If it were not around election time - this would be ignored and “move on” would be heard from every media outlet.

Not now - Obama led Dems are “new” = you know?

Real. Genuine. Appealing to the “religious right” even...
well to the “evangelicals”.....well to the “mushy middle”...

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

And then Johnboy goes and shows the world -again- that Democrats in power are basically lawless despicable lowlifes.

The Demled media MUST pretend they care so that their other pretty boy liar - Obama the communist - can get elected.

sheesh.

It won’t work.

Edwards campaign manager was PAYING THOUSANDS in hush money to the mistress and the Andrew Young person....from what $$? From Campaign money, Mr. Barron????

Is that legal????? use of campaign funds???

And he says Edwards “did not know” about the hush money!!!!

Right......sure.......and that baby was not fathered by John Edwards.

Yes, he did. And no he isn't.

These clowns that think they are so superior and thus should tell the rest of us Great Unwashed how to live and what to do are pretty sickening.

We are bad people because we want to keep the money we earn. This from a lowlife that can't keep his willie in his pants. From a guy who cheats on a wife dying of cancer.

Anyone remember how pleased the sycophants in the media were when they thought his wife's disease would bump him up in the polls?

Ashamed? One has to have morals and a conscience to feel ashamed. I've heard more sincere apologies from an 8 year old after tormenting his younger sibling.
