What a POS, I can't believe I supported him....his wife is dieing from cancer and he is off screwing someone working on his campaign
The story in a small nutshell: the National Enquirer first reported in December that Edwardswhose wife, Elizabeth, not only campaigned by his side but has cancerhad had a love child with Rielle Hunter. (Edwards tells ABC he did not father the baby, though he also says he did not take a paternity test.) As Edwards dismissed the story as "trash," the Enquirer continued to publish followups after Edwards left the race, the story coming to a head when, first, an Enquirer reporter reportedly confronted Edwards in a Beverly Hills hotel where he was visiting Hunter, and later published what it said were photos of Edwards holding the baby.
