    ... By being the first and, largely, the only publication pursuing the Edwards story through his denials of the affair and of fathering a child out of wedlock, The Enquirer is under consideration for a Pulitzer Prize, and it has strong support for its bid from other journalists. The success has Mr. Levine considering opening a Washington bureau to look for more dirt among politicians. It’s a curious time for The Enquirer to be soaring. Its parent company, American Media, nearly went bankrupt last year. A former editor claims the company pressured Tiger Woods into appearing on the cover of...

    I guess John Edwards was right; there are two Americas. One America is outside of prison walls, while the other is where John Edwards may soon live. It is being reported by the National Enquerer (yes, I know, but they have been the best source for information about Johnny B. Bad) that a Federal Grand Jury is going to indict him soon for campagin violations reltaed to his affair with New Age nutbag Rielle Hunter. A public figure campaigning for President next to his emotionally unstable mistress? How could that have ever gone wrong? Many people are furious that Edwards...

    The ultimate fall from grace, a Federal grand jury is about to indict John Edwards, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively. In another shocker, close sources say Edwards' estranged wife Elizabeth could help send the former presidential candidate to jail! Edwards, the disgraced two-time Presidential loser, is being investigated by the feds, including the FBI and IRS, for possible campaign violations related to paying his mistress Rielle Hunter. The grand jury has been meeting since April 2009, and insiders say an indictment is imminent. "John is terrified that he's going to be indicted," a friend told The ENQUIRER. "While he believes...

    A Guided Tour of John Edwards and Rielle Hunter's Future Love DenBy Maureen O'Connor The National Enquirer says John Edwards proposed to Rielle Hunter and is buying a $3.5M beach house. Now that we've found the real estate listing, a guide to the custom mahogany cabinetry (that's yuppie for "marital bliss") that lies ahead. The Enquirer's print edition included two photos from this listing with Bald Head Island Real Estate (which is, according to its website, the only real estate firm serving the North Carolina beach community), which is the only Bald Head property currently listed for $3.5 million. Since...

    John Edwards, as described by former aide Andrew Young in Young's book The Politician: "Since she was 'a crazy slut' and they had an 'open' relationship, he thought there was only a 'one-in-three chance' that he could be the father of her baby." Elizabeth Edwards, wife of John Edwards, in her book Resilience: "I have come to understand his liaison with this woman … Those with any fame or notoriety or power attract people for good reasons and bad … They flatter and entreat, and it is engaging, even addictive. They look at our lives, which from the outside in...

    Attorneys for John Edwards' mistress on Tuesday accused a former aide to the Democratic presidential candidate of theft after he turned over a videocamera that belonged to the woman. Attorneys for Rielle Hunter said the videocamera was taken from a home where she had been living. The videocamera was one of several items that ex-aide Andrew Young gave to the judge. Young's attorney said he did not know whether the videocamera was Hunter's or whether it belonged to Edwards' presidential campaign. Hunter has sued Young for invasion of privacy and sought the return of the videotape purportedly showing Edwards in...

    This year, for the first time in its colorful history, The National Enquirer will be in the running for a Pulitzer Prize. It might even deserve to win one. Thursday, after weeks of hedging, the Pulitzer Committee acknowledged that the Enquirer’s extensive coverage of John Edwards’s double life — stories that were first ignored, then dismissed, and finally vindicated in the mainstream press — would be considered for investigative reporting and national news reporting awards. By rights, the Edwards story should have been entered in the “public service” category as well. If the supermarket tabloid’s reporters hadn’t gone digging where...

    Two events in the past week highlighted yet again the outrageous double standard that the mainstream media and the political Left apply to Sarah Palin. When it was reported that Sen. John Edwards relied on his wife Elizabeth for advice on everything from public policy to haircuts, it was universally hailed as both sweet and savvy. She’s the smarter one anyway, some would even whisper. Similarly, when President Obama said he consulted his wife Michelle on important matters, it was treated as the sage decision of an intellectually curious man who loved his wife. Bill Clinton was praised for consulting...

    Elizabeth Edwards, cancer victim and cheated-on spouse, sent disturbing voicemails to former John Edwards aide Andrew Young's wife who, interestingly, was largely out of the picture of the whole, sordid, Edwards scandal. Andrew Young is of course the former Edwards aide who is currently at the center of the whole unraveling of the Edwards affair into the scandal that it is, being the author of the tell-all expose on John Edwards called The Politician. These voicemails are disturbing because they portray Elizabeth Edwards in her own voice and words as an emotionally distraught woman who at the time was possibly...

    It's a notorious night for men behaving badly. Unofficially, Feb. 13 is also known as "Mistress Day," the day that straying boyfriends and husbands set aside for the "other woman" - since they're spending the actual Valentine's Day with their girlfriends and wives. "It might not be a nationally celebrated day, but it's at least a day to practice your 'mistress retention' skills," says Noel Biderman, president of, which sets up extramarital trysts for "when monogamy becomes monotony" and boasts 2 million registered members.

  • Edwards Mistress Cheated — With Jeff Goldblum!

    The mother of John Edwards' young child was cheating on him, Star has discovered. At the same time Rielle Hunter was sleeping with the South Carolina democrat she was also having an affair with Law & Order: Criminal Intent star Jeff Goldblum! Jeff met Rielle in 2006 at the Playhouse West acting school and repertory theater in North Hollywood, where he teaches, we report in our Feb. 22 issue, on newsstands today. "Jeff said he was in love," a source tells Star. "They were extremely close — totally, 100 percent, a major item." When videographer Rielle got pregnant in 2007,...

    There are no second acts in American lives. ---F. Scott Fitzgerald Apparently writers Nicole Allan and Niraj Chokshi of Atlantic Magazine wish to hold open the possibility of a second act for disgraced John Edwards as they speculate about Is John Edwards Done Forever? Yes, all Sarah Palin has to do is read a few notes from the palm of her hand and this is enough to set off MSM liberals into a group hate rant about the former vice-presidential candidate. However, if you are a liberal the door is always open to you for a possible political comeback even...

    RALEIGH, N.C. -- A North Carolina judge wants security officers to accompany a former John Edwards aide as he goes to retrieve a sex tape of his former boss. Superior Court Judge Abraham Penn Jones said in an order released Monday that the Orange County sheriff has appointed a security firm to help recover the video and other items. Former Edwards loyalist Andrew Young has said he has the original tape and copies stored in an Atlanta safety deposit box. Jones wants the security officer to accompany Young into the vault. Jones has declared Young was in contempt for not...

    A spate of salacious new details about John Edwards’ affair with Rielle Hunter – and his handlers’ desperate, and possibly felonious, attempts at damage control – has become the source of endless talk recently with the publication of the bestselling campaign post-mortem “Game Change” and former campaign aide Andrew Young’s tell-all, “The Politician.” Edwards is just one in a long line of ambitious pols to cheat on his wife, and his affair with Hunter shares a number of interesting parallels with the sex scandals of previous presidents and candidates for the office.
  • Andrew Sullivan Apologizes For Not Being As Obsessed With Edwards As He Is With Palin

    Andrew Sullivan devoted some space today to explaining why he is so (sometimes disturbingly) relentless in his criticism of Sarah Palin and yet, in hindsight, dropped the ball where John Edwards was concerned (no pun intended). Says Sullivan: So why did I let it go? My first reason is my leeriness of investigating people’s sex lives. I had my own ransacked a decade ago and it was a brutalizing experience. The exposure of such intimate thing coarsens our discourse, violates human dignity and should, in my view, be done only if massive hypocrisy is on the table and the person...

    Oh, so NOW the the DUmmies are claiming disappointment in John Edwards. Go back 2 years and Edwards was BY FAR the hero of the DUmmies. In fact, Pied Piper Pitt claimed (once Edwards was safely out of the race) that Edwards was his first choice for the nomination. Yes, it is easy to forget now that Edwards was overwhelmingly the popular pick of the DUmmies in 2007 and early 2008. Just goes to show how the more than obvious Edwards phoniness easily won over the completely gullible. Of course, now the DUmmies are feigning shock at the sleaziness...

    Here is video of former John Edwards aide Andrew Young talking about his book, The Politician, and his role in helping him with the bizarre cover-up of Edwards' affair with staffer Rielle Hunter. Young details the two sides of Edwards' personality, how he could be cold and calculating at one moment, and then appear to be warm and caring the next. He talked about the pressure Edwards put on him to assist in the coverup of his affair, even as he was running for President during the 2007-2008 campaign. . . . (VIDEO)

    Here is video of a report that exposes former Democrat Senator and Presidential Candidate John Edwards for the complete fraud that he is. It details his extraordinary efforts to keep people from knowing that he was the father of Riehl Hunter's baby. She was a videographer who worked for his failed Presidential Campaign. Even his wife, Elizabeth, believed him at first, and called the staff member Edwards convinced to take the fall for him - Andrew Young - and left him a hateful message calling Hunter, "Your Concubine," and telling him to "stay out of our lives." As it turned...
