    Rielle Hunter and John Edwards No Longer a Couple

    No surprise here for Rielle Hunter or John Edwards.

    Rielle Hunter and John Edwards ended their controversial relationship last week, just days after her new book debuted and she went public about how they met, hid their affair and had a baby girl together.

    “We are a family, but as of the end of last week John Edwards and I are no longer a couple. Not at all,” Hunter told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on “Good Morning America.”

    When asked if she still loved Edwards, Hunter replied, “I do.”

    Stephanopoulos asked if Edwards still loved her and she said, “You have to ask him. I think he does. I mean I feel that he does.”

    Nevertheless, the couple split, she said, worn down by the scrutiny and pressure brought on by their high profile affair that began while Edwards was running for the 2008 presidential nomination.

    “For me, for my part in it, it’s because I’m no longer interested in hiding, hiding our relationship, not living out,” she said. “I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but we’ve had a lot of media scrutiny. It’s complicated and it’s hard. It wears you down after a while.”

    Hunter, 48, wouldn’t say whether one of them made the break.

    “That’s private. We decided together to end it. It’s hard. It’s painful,” she said.

    Maybe this long ordeal will be over and John Edwards can go back to taking care of his children, including the one with Rielle Hunter.

    Talk about a political career melt down….

    Photo of the Day: John Edward’s Mug Shot

    Former North Carolina Senator John Edwards

    Nice hair for a mug shot.

    Former U.S. Senator John Edwards, pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and campaign law violations in early June. His mug shot was obtained by CNN following a Freedom of Information Act request.

    The plea came after a federal grand jury indicted him on six counts, including conspiracy, issuing false statements and violating campaign contribution laws.

    A grand jury has been investigating whether money given to support Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter, by benefactors of Edwards should have been considered campaign donations, a contention Edwards’ team has disputed.

    Video: John Edwards Indicted and Arrest Warrant Issued

    If you think politics and politicians are bad, it only get worse with the John Edward’s story. Watch the video above for a complete and sordid timeline of the John Edward’s affair with Rielle Hunter.

    A federal grand jury indicted former North Carolina senator and presidential candidate John Edwards Friday.

    Sources tell ABC11 that Edwards will make his first court appearance at 1:30 p.m. in Winston-Salem.

    The case of United States of America v. Johnny Reid Edwards contains six counts, including conspiracy, four counts of illegal campaign contributions and one count of false statements. A warrant for his arrest has been issued.

    The federal indictment can be found here.

    The indictment says he “did knowingly and willfully combine, conspire, confederate, and agree with others” to “accept and receive, while a candidate for federal office, contributions” “in excess of the limits of the Elections Act.”

    The indictment says Edwards’ actions caused his campaign to file false campaign finance reports. It goes on to say the purpose of the conspiracy was to cover up the former senator’s affair with Rielle Hunter.

    I covered this story many years ago and it was very obvious that Edwards was lying and covering up his affair with Rielle Hunter in order to save his political hide. He will have to plead guilty to a federal felony in order to avoid federal prison and be disbarred.

    Wonder if Ms. Hunter will want him now?

    You mean the Democrat Pols have the same skeletons in their closets as the Republicans?

    What a shocker?


    The fact is the LEFT has been able to manipulate the LAME-Stream media in covering up their sexual predilections better than the RIGHT. With the emergence of the New Media, I don’t think this will be working out so well for them. Look recently at Al Gore and John Edwards.

    Stay tuned….. we are going into election season and the dirty laundry will fly.

    Al Gore Involved in Sex Scandal Says National Enquirer

    From the National Enquirer

    Well, they were right about John Edwards, Rielle Hunter and their baby.

    In a bombshell new development in the AL GORE sex scandal — broken EXCLUSIVELY earlier today by The ENQUIRER — the Oregon District Attorney says there’s “the possibility of a criminal prosecution.”

     In a statement just released by Multnomah County (OR.) D.A. Michael D. Schrunk, the official reveals that “our office was notified by the Portland Police Bureau that further investigation of this matter had been conducted by it in 2009 and we were provided with the reports from that further investigation.”

     Schrunk goes on to add: “If the complainant and the Portland Police Bureau wish to pursue the possibility of a criminal prosecution, additional investigation by the Bureau will be necessary and will be discussed with the Portland Police Bureau.”

    And, Al Gore and his wife of 42 years, Tipper, recently announced they were divorcing.

    So, who knows?

    But, if I were Gore I think I might want to get in front of this story, unlike John Edwards.

    John Edwards to FINALLY Admit Fathering Ex-Mistress’ Baby?

    Maybe John Edwards can start paying some legal child support too.

    Sources have told WRAL News that they expect former U.S. Sen. John Edwards to admit that he is the father of his former mistress’ 18-month-old daughter.

    Edwards, a two-time Democratic presidential candidate, confessed last August to having an affair with Rielle Hunter, who served as a videographer on Edwards’ 2008 campaign. He has denied fathering her daughter, saying his relationship with Hunter ended before the child was conceived.

    The name of the girl’s father isn’t disclosed on her birth certificate.

    Andrew Young, a long-time Edwards aide, initially claimed to be the father of Hunter’s child, but he is reportedly writing a book in which he will claim Edwards is the father.

    A federal grand jury is investigating whether Edwards’ campaign funds were illegally paid to Hunter to keep quiet about the affair.

    Hunter spent nine hours last Thursday at the federal courthouse in Raleigh, where the grand jury was meeting. She brought her daughter, Frances, with her.

    I guess calling Edward’s crooked ass before a federal grand jury will prime the truth pump, so to speak.

    My bet is that Edwards will end up paying some substantial fines for using campaign funds to keep Rielle Hunter quiet about their affair.

    Elizabeth Edwards: “No Idea” if John Edwards Fathered Rielle Hunter’s Baby


    Why would any woman subject herself to this scrutiny?

    And, on Oprah?

    In the meantime, John Edwards is under investigation by the feds on possible campaign finance laws re: illegal use of campaign funds and Reille Hunter.

    Of course, Flap would guess that 99 per cent of American women hope his sorry ass is thrown in jail.

    John Edwards on the Comeback Trail?


    Flap won’t be too cynical. But, how in God’s name could anyone come back into the political arena from this?

    But, apparently Edwards is going to try.

    Former U.S. Sen. John Edwards took another tentative step into the public spotlight tonight, speaking at Brown University about extreme poverty around the world and urging Americans to get involved in what he called a “fundamental moral issue.”

    Edwards, a two-time candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, has struggled to get his message heard since a scandal about an affair he had with a former campaign staffer enveloped his personal life.

    During 30 minutes of questions following tonight’s speech, just one person in the audience of nearly 600 came close to asking about the affair.

    A student who said she organized for Edwards on campus and knocked on doors for him in New Hampshire asked whether politicians should be held to higher moral standards than the rest of the public.

    The question sent murmurs through the crowd.

    “I don’t think it’s for a candidate to decide what’s appropriate,” Edwards said. “It’s something for every American to decide for themselves.”

    The Obama Administration and national Democrats in the Congress are wishing Edwards would just go away.

    After all, look what they did to marginalize Howard Dean.

    John Edwards FINALLY Admits He Fathered a Child With Reille Hunter


    Good Grief. After all, Edwards DID Admit he had an affair with the woman. But, he denied he was the father of the baby.

    Watch the video interview:

    Airing Date Aug.8, 2008 John Edwards ABC “Night Line” Interview On His Adultery

    Now, John Edwards does the right thing.

    John Edwards has finally confessed to his cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth what the rest of the world already knows – that he fathered a child with his mistress.

    Edwards made the belated admission to his wife in an effort to stop ex-lover Rielle Hunter from going public, sources told The ENQUIRER.

    In Part two of the interview, John Edwards blatantly LIES about the paternity of the child he NOW admits he fathered:

    What a CAD.

    Now, about that child support…….
