RALEIGH, North Carolina (Reuters) - Former Senator and presidential candidate John Edwards must testify before a judge about his relationship with his former mistress, Rielle Hunter, a North Carolina judge ruled on Friday.

The private testimony will come during a deposition set for June 20 as part of a civil suit brought by Hunter against Edwards' former aide, Andrew Young.

Hunter has sued Young and his wife Cheri to force the return of a videotape that allegedly shows Hunter and Edwards having sex. Young says he found the tape while packing boxes in a home near Chapel Hill, North Carolina where Hunter lived with the Youngs for a time.

A February 8 deposition of Edwards was halted when his lawyers told him not to answer numerous questions posed by Young's attorneys. Young's attorneys filed a motion March 2 asking Superior Court Judge Carl Fox to compel Edwards to answer.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave...

At least Elizabeth is gone and doesn’t have to deal with this sh!t anymore. (Not that I respected her all that much; LibTard Women? Go figure!)

BUT - I will say this - after divorcing a man who was 100X WORSE than Edwards, as far as his ‘sexcapades’ and lying, his deceit and general lack-o-morality, I too, agree:

IT COULDN’T HAPPEN TO A NICER GUY. *SMIRK*

Shame this coward can’t hide behind the skirts of his dying wife any longer.

Keeping a sex tape with John Edwards in it? That is just just too creepy!

What kind of morons make tapes like that, and even more bewildering, leave them sitting around when they have asked someone else to help them move?

The press should have to answer questions - like, ‘how long did you cover for Edwards?’...

They covered for him as long as he was taking votes away from Hillary and helping Obama win primaries.

It’s called collecting trophies.

It probably isn’t the only sex tape he has. There are probably dozens of them somewhere.

You must be young. That's Bob Crane, who was a successful TV actor in the early sixties. He was murdered, and after his murder, investigators discovered that he had made hundreds of sex movies featuring himself and various ladies. This was unusual back then, as it was before video tape and getting the films developed required some heavy duty processing and equipment. Plus, at that time, people frequently went to jail for making porno.

That’s Bob Crane, lead role who played Col. Robert Hogan in one of the all-time best t.v. sitcoms...Hogan’s Heroes. Just how old are you anyway? Must be a young pup. Evidently ol’ Bob had some skeletons in his closet, as do so many.

John Edwards...


...the man that almost 45 Million Americans believed had all the tools to be the next in line for the Presidency of the United States now says he will kill himself if he is held accountable to the legal system we are all supposed to obey.

I have no idea what you mean; just an old broad who believes women shouldn’t be asked their age.

Bobby, you are not supposed to ask a lady her age. But certainly young enough to never have heard of that guy, and to know nothing about the history of homemade porn.
