The reclusive John Edwards financier and defender speaks out to Meryl Gordon of Newsweek.

Prosecutors have charged that she gave $725,000 to former presidential candidate John Edwards in 2007 and 2008, which he used to conceal his extramarital affair with Rielle Hunter and the existence of their child. Mellon has not been accused of wrongdoing…

Stressing that her sympathies have always been with Edwards rather than his wife, who died last year from cancer, she confides, “You know that John had a hard time with Elizabeth.” Mellon’s lawyer Alex Forger elaborates further on his client’s attitude: “She was not enamored of his wife and didn’t want his wife to know that he was getting money.”
