It’s not so much the idea that John Edwards knocked up someone but rather that a campaign aide would actually try to cover up for Edwards in such a ridiculous way. That basically makes me not want to trust not only Edwards but anyone surrounding John Edwards, no matter how “selfless” they come off in the Enquirer:
But The ENQUIRER has now confirmed not only that Rielle is pregnant, but she is also living in Chapel Hill, N.C. in a gated community, just a few streets away from Andrew Young, who has been a key official in Edwards’ campaign.
Young has been in charge of looking after Hunter, according to sources, and she has been careful to stay out of sight during Edwards’ campaign. A former Director of Operations for Edwards’ campaign, Young’s last official position with the campaign was North Carolina Finance Director.
He left that job about a month ago — nearly the same time Rielle relocated from the New Jersey area to Chapel Hill.
In a bizarre twist, Young, a 41-year-old married man with young children, now claims HE is the father of Reille’s baby.
But others are skeptical about his claim and talk of a political cover up is heating up.
Reille, when contacted in person by the NATIONAL ENQUIRER, denied that she was Reille Hunter. Later, she hired a lawyer and issued a statement, saying that Young is the father.
That is the real scandal.
