Let me just start out by saying that this is a tragic story. I take absolutely zero joy in the destruction of anyones personal life regardless of whether I agree with them or not. Even the left is outraged over this one – and they should be:
John Edwards repeatedly lied during his Presidential campaign about an extramarital affair with a novice filmmaker, the former Senator admitted to ABC News today.
In an interview for broadcast tonight on Nightline, Edwards told ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff he did have an affair with 44-year old Rielle Hunter, but said that he did not love her.
Edwards also denied he was the father of Hunter’s baby girl, Frances Quinn, although the one-time Democratic Presidential candidate said he has not taken a paternity test.
Here’s what the Kos entry said:
Well, since he didn’t love her, it’s okay that he made a run for the Democratic Party’s nomination knowing that he was lying through his teeth about this. And a Friday news dump on the day of the opening ceremonies of the Olympics? Coward.
I don’t care what your politics are – don’t freakin cheat on your wife. Another sad day as yet another sad politician eats large quantities of crap – as he should. I feel horrible for his wife.
