From my BlogWonk Column over at MensNewsDaily.com:
After lying about it and refering to reports of his infidelity to his cancer stricken wife as “Tabloid Trash”, former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards admitted Friday to having an extramarital affair in 2006 with a woman named Rielle Hunter who worked on his campaign. But the story doesn’t end there.
Edwards went as far as say he would take a paternity test to prove that the child born was not his. Edward’s booty call and mother of the child has stated that there would be no paternity test, which only leads me to believe that the only reason Edwards made such an offer was because he in all likelyhood knew that his mistress, Rielle Hunter would deny a paternity test.
Edwards, once thought to be the Obamessiah’s choice for a VP running mate has quickly fallen from grace and appears to have thrown himself under the already crowded underside of Obama’s bus as a political liability to the Messiah of the Democratic party.
John Edwards is a bottom feeder, one of the lowest forms of life known to man. An ambulance chasing trial attorney, and despite all that, he is (and it irks me to say it) successful at his career.
As a former Corrections Officer in Michigan, I found myself on the stand numerous times. One time while being prepped for testimony, I asked the Prosecuting Attorney why he would not ask a particular question to the defendent if he was to take the stand, and the Prosecutor told me, “Never ask a question you don’t know the answer to!”. He told me that was the first rule as a trial attorney.
I believe with all my heart that the ONLY reason John Edwards made the offer to take a paternity test to determine whether or not he fathered a child while having unprotected sex with his mistress was because he KNEW for a fact that Rielle Hunter would refuse to participate in the test, despite reports that she has been telling those close to her that Edwards is her baby’s daddy.
The National Enquirer has been reporting on the affair for about 10 months now. He says his statements were 99 percent truthful and yet he told the American public while running for the highest office in the land that he did not have an affair, that these were lies, all lies. Yet he still expects the public to believe he is being truthful? I’ll buy that and the Brooklyn Bridge for $20 bucks!
I think that eventually the two ships that collided in the night will end up with a spot on Maury Povitch’s show on one of his “Who’s my baby’s daddy” spots in which women who in most cases have to figure out which one of the 20 guys she slept with in one weeks time is her baby’s daddy.
