For the first time, John Edwards is publicly admitting that he is indeed the father of a 2-year-old daughter conceived with Rielle Hunter, a campaign videographer with whom he had an affair.
In a written statement provided exclusively to NBC News, the former North Carolina senator and Democratic presidential candidate says hes taking responsibility for the child, Frances Quinn Hunter:
I am Quinns father. I will do everything in my power to provide her with the love and support she deserves. I have been able to spend time with her during the past year and trust that future efforts to show her the love and affection she deserves can be done privately and in peace.

When the news of his affair and possible “love child” first came out, I actually felt sorry for Elizabeth. I’ve read interviews with the guy who took the fall for it (cannot recall his name) and I believe Elizabeth is a political animal just like her slimy husband.
Well, Edwards appears to be heterosexual (albeit in a sissy sort of way).
maybe he can move her to Florida where she can get her Schiavo’d(s)
So, evidently, he just wanted to make America just another one of his sleazy mistresses.
This is the same Andrew Youngt that took the rap for fathering the kid in the first place a couple of years ago. What an assortment of tools.
This is little more than John Edwards being forced to come clean in advance of the publication of his former aid Andrew Young’s book, in which Young is reportedly going to detail everything he knows about this scandal, and deny that he is the father.
“John Edwards doing the right thing” is an oxymoron of enormous proportions.
Jim and Tammy Faye Baker had nothing on John and Elizabeth Edwards when it came to drama. The only thing Elizabeth is lacking is tattooed eye makeup...
Who can forget that the MSM refused to cover the Edwards scandal. Flat out refused.
This tibit from 2008:
The editor of the LA Times, Tony Pierce, has higher concerns, though. He recently sent staff an edict. “There has been a little buzz surrounding John Edwards and his alleged affair,” it read. “Because the only source has been the National Enquirer we have decided not to cover the rumours or salacious speculations.”
However, the LA Times covered the rumors about McCain having an affair in depth despite them being false.
This hits the mark. Very sad, you don't get to choose your parents.
Hahahaha....That is one headline we’ll never see along with:
Obama admits he was not born in USA.
