And to being the father of his mistresse’s baby… Oh don’t look so surprised. He’s a politician, a lawyer. What else could we expect but behavior totally depraved?
Former presidential candidate John Edwards has admitted fathering his former campaign videographer’s daughter. In a statement released to NBC News, Edwards said, “I am Quinn’s father…It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me.” The admission comes after months of denials from Edwards that he fathered former mistress Rielle Hunter’s daughter, Frances Quinn. The revelation also comes a week before his former campaign aide, Andrew Young, is set to appear in an ABC interview saying he posed as the father as a favor to Edwards. The two-time presidential candidate also admitted to providing financial support to the child and said in the statement that he has “reached an agreement with her mother to continue providing support in the future.” “To all those I have disappointed and hurt these words will never be enough, but I am truly sorry,” Edwards said.
Edwards is only admitting all this because he wants to take the wind out of the sail of his former campaign aid spills the beans. ‘Get ahead of the story…’ – that’s the politician’s way. It has nothing whatsoever to do with authentic regret; it’s just another political move. America, behold, thy politically minded ‘public servants’.
