According to the National Enquirer, the publication that broke the story in the first place, former senator and vice presidential candidate John Edwards admitted to his wife, Elizabeth, that he is the father of Rielle Hunter’s baby. The Edwards confession is supposedly an attempt to stop the mother of the child from going public.  No one believed when his former campaign worker, Andrew Young, claimed to be the dad.

The ex-senator sprang into action when he saw how upset Rielle had become over Elizabeth’s forthcoming book, Resilience: Reflections on the Burdens and Gifts of Facing Life’s Adversities, which will be published in May.


“Rielle has become extremely edgy, and John’s been afraid she might go public before Elizabeth’s book comes out so she can put her story out there first,” the close source told The ENQUIRER.


“These concerns led to John telling Rielle that he had sat down with Elizabeth and admitted to being the baby’s father. This is something Rielle had been pushing John to do for a long, long time because he initially told Elizabeth he was not the father.


“The last thing John wants right now is for Rielle to go public before Elizabeth’s book comes out, make new headlines and trigger a nasty battle between the two women.”


What a shame that one promising career of public service has been squashed, while another, that of Louisiana Senator David Vitter, lives on.  While Edwards’ poltical career is a non-starter, family values candidate and former DC Madam client Vitter is able to do things like introduce legislation to defund Planned Parenthood.
