The former North Carolina senator John Edwards finally comes clean admitting he is the father of his former campaign videographer’s baby,who is now two years old.
I’m not sure that his intentions are about taking responsibility for this child, but more likely a forced confession by the media’s plans to expose a former aide, Andrew Young, who originally claimed that he was the father, but is now recanting that in a new book.
Apparently Andrew Young now proclaims that John Edwards ordered him to “Get a doctor to fake the DNA results.” Wow, isn’t that illegal even for a politician? So, now we know that John Edwards is a liar and a cheater, but wait there is still more. It’s possible that he may have commingled funds to help relocate his lover to a three million dollar mansion in Santa Barbara, California. Could he have broken any more of his marriage vows and laws if he tried?
I’m not judging him for being unfaithful to his wife while she was suffering from serious medical problems, practicing unsafe sex, giving his lover money, even getting someone else to admit to the paternity, but the fact that he was such a hypocrite on the Monica Lewinsky scandal and said this about President Bill Clinton:
“I think this President has shown a remarkable disrespect for his office, for the moral dimensions of leadership, for his friends, for his wife, for his precious daughter. It is breathtaking to me the level to which that disrespect has risen.”
I admire Hillary Clinton for standing by her man, but Elizabeth Edwards deserves someone more worthy.
