Former US Democratic Presidential hopeful John Edwards has finally admitted he is the father of Rielle Hunter’s child. This is not surpise as it has been obvious he was for a while, but what is interesting is how long he kept lying and lying and lying about it.
This was no one off “I did not have sexual relations” comment. He did not just lie to his staff, family and the public over first the affair, and then the child. He actually got one of his friends to claim he was in fact the father, and also tried to fake a paternity test.
The only reason Edwards has finally admitted it, is the friend is about to have his book published detailing the cover-up. Edwards has flown to Haiti to show how much he cares about poor people, and avoid questions.
I’ve always detested Edwards as a phony – he seemed so fake, and was.
