John Edwards: Yes to Affair, No to paternity

Today we learn that John Edwards has confirmed having an affair with film maker Rielle Hunter. Edwards made the confession in an interview with ABC’s Nightline which will be broadcast this evening, August 8. This naturally means that Edwards lied on multiple occasions during his Presidential campaign and that in fact The National Enquirer was correct in their reporting of the issue in October 2007.

To make the situation stickier, Hunter claims he fathered her baby, Francis Quinn, though the Breck Girl says the affair ended a reasonable time prior to conception. While Mr. Edwards could concievably be telling the truth, The Bruce for one does not believe him. In the end, we may simply have to wait until the child’s hair comes in.
