Rielle Hunter and John Edwards No Longer a Couple

Posted 1 CommentPosted in John Edwards

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….

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.

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?

NOT

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.
