The John Edwards Update

Most major media still have an omerta in place in dealing with the extramarital hijinks of John Edwards, former candidate for the Democrat nomination for president. Because of this abrogation of responsibility we have to turn to a real investigative news source, the National Enquirer, for the news the alleged mainstream media will not touch.

The day prior to Edwards bombshell admission to an affair on ABC’s Nightline, Rielle Hunter and her 6 month old daughter, Frances Quinn Hunter, were flown out of the US onboard a chartered Learjet.

The private flight cost $50,000 and was paid for by Edwards’ pals. The Hunters were the solo passengers aboard the eight-hour flight.[…]

Edwards is not only aware of the hush money payoffs but orchestrated it with his team of former campaign advisors and now The ENQUIRER has discovered that a team of six more lawyers have been involved in the coverup and are funneling payments to Hunter, who has no money and no means of support.

The ENQUIRER has also learned that Hunter’s own lawyer advised her to allow Edwards to take a paternity test but she refused out of misguided belief that Edwards will marry her after the death of his cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth.

Why, you ask, am I belaboring this? Well, if I thought Edwards was possessed of even a vestigial sense of shame I would let it go. But he isn’t. And, on the whole, Democrats really don’t care about grotesque immorality and they don’t want anyone else to care either. So I know that John Edwards is plotting a rehabilitation and comeback. In short, like the poor, John Edwards will always be with us. I can’t make him go away but I can try to make sure the ordure he brings to any future public endeavor will stink up the place.
