NATIONAL ENQUIRER: John Edwards Caught Visiting Mistress (Rielle Hunter) & Secret Love Child … Two Americas … Baby Daddy?

Posted in: Bizarre,Celebrity,John Edwards,Media,Media Bias,Politics,Presidential Election 2008,Scandal,WTF

Talk about your Two Americas … or it it two faces John Edwards?


John Edwards – Rielle Hunter

The story comes from The National Enquirer and that does provide some pause. However, even a blind squirrel manages to find an acorn or two every so often. A broken clock does tell the time correct twice a day and as compared to the news stories from the MSM these days … why can’t this be true? We are reminded by The Corner that it was The National Enquirer that broke the Rush Limbaugh/Oxycontin story and most stories in the O.J Simpson case.

Who knew this was the Two Americas that Edwards was talking about?

The National Enquirer is reporting that former Democratic VP Democratic and Barack Obama Veep candidate short lister, John Edwards has been caught visiting his mistress and love child at the Beverly Hilton on Monday night. I guess the Obama VP vetting team missed this one? The Enquirer is reporting that John Edwards met with his mistress, blonde divorcĂ©e Rielle Hunter, at the Beverly Hilton.

Rielle had driven to Los Angeles from Santa Barbara with a male friend for the rendezvous with Edwards. The former senator attended a press event Monday afternoon with L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on the topic of how to combat homelessness.

But a months-long NATIONAL ENQUIRER investigation had yielded information that Rielle and Edwards, 54, had arranged to secretly meet afterward and for the ex-senator to spend some time with both his mistress and the love child who he refuses to publicly acknowledge as his own.

The NATIONAL ENQUIRER broke the story of Edwards’ love child scandal last year, when Rielle was still pregnant and Edwards was still considered a strong candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination.


John & Elizabeth Edwards

It would appear that Pajama Media had gotten wind of this story a while back but held back from running with it. Roger Simon gives some great advice when it comes to politicians. The advice can be used with Edward’s past pontificating and plays as well with a president day Democrat running for office …


So all this was going on as Edward’s wife was battling cancer and standing by her man. Or should we say her“Breck Girl”.

UPDATE I: John Edwards Affair: Interview with David Perel, Editor-in-Chief of the National Enquirer

“Inquiring minds want to know.”

After an hour-long interview with David Perel, Editor-in-Chief of the National Enquirer, we can now say with certainty: it was easy. The steadfast “cone of silence” placed on the story by the Mainstream Media made it easy for anyone willing to do the legwork to grab the story from a decidedly-uninterested “respectable” press.
