John edwards affair

The National Enquirer has released more details that indicate that John Edwards lied to viewers on his Nightline appearance last week on ABC.

Including this interesting point, “Edwards claimed he ended the affair in 2006, but sources say he restarted the illicit romance after confessing to his wife. Rielle soon became pregnant after the affair was rekindled, say sources.”

UPDATES to follow at end of story.
UPDATE #1 – working

But wait! There’s more:

Edwards’ headline-making admission confirmed The ENQUIRER’s blockbuster world exclusive reports detailing his affair, in articles Edwards brazenly called “completely untrue” and “tabloid trash” while running for president and afterward.

And now The ENQUIRER has uncovered that Edwards’ political operatives are still paying his mistress Rielle Hunter – and she was whisked away on a private jet two days before he confessed their extramarital affair on national TV!

The ENQUIRER has also confirmed that Edwards secretly visited Rielle and their love child three separate times at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles this year – a fact that proves he is still lying to America and his wife.

ENQUIRER reporters caught Edwards, 55, making a late-night visit to 44-year-old Rielle and their daughter at the hotel on July 21 – which prompted us to release the first-ever photograph of him with his love child last week.

More John Edwards Scandal Background and News: over 80 stories on the scandal since December.

The National Enquirer is nailing the coffin shut on what was left of John Edwards’ political career with its latest revelations. Edwards on November 29, 2007 had boasted that he had “stared down the National Enquirer”. At that time, the Enquirer’s allegations were general in nature, however. Edwards’ Nightline appearance on August 8 was his first denial on the record of the Enquirer’s later allegations, which became very specific in nature after December 18, 2007.

Other details released by the Enquirer include the following hard-for-Edwards-to-parse items:

* After Edwards confessed the affair to his wife, he restarted it, and was sexually involved with Rielle when she became pregnant.

* Despite his denials, Edwards WAS aware that his former finance committee chairman, Fred Baron, was funneling money to Rielle.

Experts are now calling for a federal investigation into Edwards’ use of campaign funds.
