Skip to comments.John Edwards Wanted Paternity Test Faked: Aide
Posted on 01/21/2010 12:21:14 PM PST by My Favorite Headache
(Newser) Former John Edwards aide and fake babydaddy Andrew Young is dishing on the specifics of the foiled ruse, including a seamy attempt to fake a paternity test. Youngs ABC News interview, set to air next week, is widely seen as the impetus for Edwards acknowledgment today that he is the father of Rielle Hunters baby, Frances Quinn Hunter. The New York Daily News got its hands on a copy.
Young says at one point Edwards told him to get a doctor to fake the DNA results. Young, who sequestered Hunter for months during the scandal, says the former senator asked him to steal a diaper from the baby so he could secretly do a DNA test to find out if this indeed is his child. In addition, NBC News confirms the widely reported rumor that John Edwards and his wife, Elizabeth, who is battling terminal cancer, have separated.
No, she’s a scumbag lawyer who’s been in it all from the beginning. Yes, she has cancer, but she married one, too.
After reading the Enquirer story, looks like he was just hitting on her and other women in the bar, trying to get them to come home with him. So I shouldn’t have said he “shacked up” with her.
“Hey Fred, got a big favor to ask....”
Actually not. According to the story, he hit on a stunner of a barmaid who shot him down dead cold. She said she thought he was scum. Some woman can tell, others don't care.
Andrew Young putting this all on the record, confirming that he accepted bribe money to claim to be the father, the rest of this — aren’t there some legal issues he would need to deal with, considering he was a paid member of the staff of a federal official when he was involved in all this stuff? Just how smart was it to do a book, and can any of the proceeds be confiscated at some point?
Yep - pretty obvious that - thank God for the internut! Now THAT’S progressive! : )
oh please!!! His poor wife was ready to keep lying for him in hopes she could foist his scrawny ass on us as our President.
Yeah I know she’s got cancer and has been on her deathbed now for quite awhile. Doesn’t make her a good person.
JMHO, and of course others ae entitled to theirs.
That’s true...I am actually amazed she is still with his lying ass. Especially since there is nothing for her to gain at this point.
These guys all must invoke JFK in their analysis of whether it’s possible to get away with this stuff. JFK didn’t get away with it, he died. Had he lived some aide or press rat would have nailed him.
Sad about the wife but she was by his side when he was gettin rich ripping off doctors and ruining their lives.
It is shocking to see the Dem scum in the primaries - Dodd, Hillary, Hussein the illegal, Edwards.
The GOP on the other hand had some very decent men - Juan McCain was not one of them.
He’s probably no Tiger Woods, but I’m wondering if further bimbos from the campaign trail will erupt. What scum.
JOHN EDWARDS SECRET GRAND JURY CONVENES IN RALEIGH, N.C.
See my #22 if you haven’t already. At the time I posted that he “shacked up” with her, I had only seen the cover (which tends to make one think he did more than hit on her)at the supermarket last night and not read the article. My bad.
Does this mean the Inquirer gets the Pulitzer this year?
No they get the Nobel prize for literature.
Sounds like part of the plot for the movie "Primary Colors" which supposedly chronicled the Clinton's presidential run in 1991. Do this democrats get together and collaborate on how to lie, scam, cheat and steal or something?!
You can probably win a few lawsuits by faking test results.
I can’t stand Elizabeth Edwards either, never could. But that whole long-term terminal cancer thing she’s been through is not something I’d wish on anyone.
No matter how nasty she is and may always have been, I feel bad that hubby has made her last few years such a living hell on top of the hell that is the cancer.
