I had held off on this except for a quick mention when the National Enquirer first reported it because, well, it was the National Enquirer, but it appears that the rumors that John Edwards was involved in an affair are true.
The former Democratic Presidential candidate is set to come clean tonight in an interview on ABC’s Nightline where he will admit to boinking former campaign worker Rielle Hunter while she traveled with him back in 2006. He also claims that despite what the Enquirer is reporting, he isn’t the father of Hunter’s baby because the timing doesn’t fit.
Edwards, who’s wife is stricken with incurable cancer, also made a point of telling ABC that his wife was in remission from her disease during the affair because as you know, that makes it so much better.
Edwards made a point of telling Woodruff that his wife’s cancer was in remission when he began the affair with Hunter. Elizabeth Edwards has since been diagnosed with an incurable form of the disease.
I guess we can now put the possibilities of his being chosen as Barack Obama’s VP candidate or being given any position within an Obama cabinet to rest can’t we?
