Why now, is Edwards being treated for a sex addiction too?

Only a ‘bombshell’ for those last few nursing home residents that still watch the lame stream media.

Bomb shell? Hardley. Had he come clean in January 2008 it would have been a bomb shell. Now it is an asterix at best.

This IS a bombshell. Everyone already knew it was his child, but for him to admit paternity is a real shocker.

From the article: “To all those I have disappointed and hurt, these words will never be enough, but I am truly sorry,” he said.

He still doesn’t get it. He LIED to all of us. He should have said “I’m a liar. I lied to the American people. I was not and will never be worthy to serve in a position again”.

So if Edwards says the child is his, then that means that the child really isn’t his after all? I am so confused...

I don't believe it.

The only way this butt luver is the biological father of Quinn is via artificial insemination.

He's lying so people will think he is straight.

Maybe he's just saying this to cover um.. something else up.

And what says the guy you bribed with the hush-money, the paid staff man who took *credit* for you, had your woman in his home with his own family ... any word from that liar?

The admission also comes in advance of a tell-all book by Andrew Young, a former Edwards campaign worker who originally claimed to be the father of Hunter’s child. But Hickman says that the book had no bearing on Edwards’ decision to go public.

That Andrew Young is telling a story where Edwards asked him to steal a dirty diaper to get DNA on the kid. He said if the DNA proved Edwards was the father, he was to find a doctor that would lie about DNA results. That sounds like something Edwards would do. Of course the other guy is a liar, too.

2007 Father of the year.

Did this award depend on baby count or how much you scam from employers in legal action?
