Former Democratic NC Senator, Vice Presidential and Presidential candidate John Edwards has finally admitted that he had an affair with Rielle Hunter in 2006. However, John “the Breck girl” Edwards has stated that he his not the father of Rielle Hunter’s baby, Frances Quinn Hunter.

John Edwards peddling from the truth as fast as he can
Transcript of John Edwards interview with ABC News’ Nightline, Bob Woodruff.
JOHN EDWARDS: In 2006 2 years ago, I made a very serious mistake. A mistake that I am responsible for and no one else. In 2006 I told Elizabeth about the mistake, asked her for her forgiveness, asked God for his forgiveness. And we have kept this within our family since that time. All of my family knows about this and just to be absolutely clear, none of them are responsible for it. I am responsible for it. I alone am responsible for it. And it led to this most recent incident at the Beverly Hilton. I was at the Beverly Hilton. I was there for a very simple reason, because I was trying to keep this mistake that I had made from becoming public. BOB WOODRUFF: Is this affair completely over? JOHN EDWARDS: Oh yes, it’s been over for a long time.
John Edwards has claimed that he is not the baby daddy of 6 month old Frances Quinn Hunter and was willing to take a paternity test to prove it. Edwards, don’t ask for things as they might come true. However, Edwards’ comments have managed to infuriate Rielle Hunter’s younger sister Melissa. She is incensed that Edwards is painting her sister to be promiscuous. The family of Rielle Hunter is now forcing John Edwards hand and challenging him to take a DNA paternity test.
Reille Hunter and John Edwards
The family of John Edwards’ former mistress, Rielle Hunter, is challenging the former senator to take a DNA paternity test after his claim that he did not father Hunter’s 6-months-old child.
In the first reaction from Hunter’s family, her younger sister Melissa told ABC News that Edwards should immediately follow through on his pledge to take a paternity test.
“I would challenge him to do so,” the sister said.
“Somebody must stand up and defend my sister,” she said. “I wish that those involved would refrain from bad-mouthing my sister.”
Edwards thought that this story would go away following his contrived interview with ABC’s Nightline. The MSM, Democrats and Barack Obama also hoped that this story would vanish. Nothing could not be further from the truth. It appears that Reille Hunter’s sister has called the Breck girls bluff with regards to a paternity test. The Edwards story and events do not make sense and do not pass the smell test. The following statement by John Edwards during the Nightline interview makes no sense. None, what-so-ever. Edwards met in person with his former mistress, Rielle Hunter, to keep his affair secret. WTF! Who is he kidding? Why would anyone make them self in the public eye if they wanted to keep something a secret?
And it led to this most recent incident at the Beverly Hilton. I was at the Beverly Hilton. I was there for a very simple reason, because I was trying to keep this mistake that I had made from becoming public.
Also, Hot Air brings up some rather interesting premises that pretty much show that John Edwards is still lying and has not come completely clean. If Edwards is the father then the affair did not end when he claims and continued and actually continued after Edwards’ wife Elizabeth was seriously ill and diagnoses with cancer again.
Now, why would Hunter’s sister publicly challenge Edwards to take that paternity test? It certainly isn’t to encourage him to clear his name, as the rest of the article makes Melissa’s hostility plain. Melissa apparently has some knowledge of her niece’s paternity. This strongly indicates that Edwards indeed fathered the child, and that Edwards is still lying.
It is obvious that this scandal is not going away any time soon because it is apparent that Edwards has not been fully honest about it. Hell, he has denied every aspect of the scandal … why not also being a baby daddy? So if Edwards has first denied being at the hotel, then denied the affair with Rielle Hunter and now that he fathered Rielle’s baby … why are we to believe John Edwards seeing that the affair is true? So if the National Enquirer has reported correctly all along about the John Edwards affair while the MSM has remained quite, then why are they not correctly reporting that Edwards is the father? Why is he holding the baby in the above pic?
