Where is John Edwards?
Dropped out of sight Since July 30

Where\'s John Edwards?

DBKP has been following the unfolding John Edwards scandal and we happened to notice that the main character in this sordid saga hasn’t been seen in a while, so we wondered, where in the world is John Edwards?

Following the Edwards Trail

July 21, 2008

Perhaps the last “happy” photo of Edwards we may see in a while. The July 21 press conference held with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announcing the $100m Next Generation Trust Fund. Edwards attended as Chairman of his new org., Half in Ten, From Poverty to Prosperity.

The Enquirer claims Edwards entered the Beverly Hilton Hotel at 9:45pm (PST) and spent time in a room reserved by his alleged mistress and mother of his love child, Reille Hunter. The Enquirer alleges that Edwards left at 2:40am where he ran from Enquirer reporters and hid in a men’s room.

July 22: Edwards heads to Denver, the next stop of his Half in Ten Tour, while the Enquirer publishes the story of Edwards late night meeting with Hunter online: Senator John Edwards Caught With Mistress and Love Child!

John Edwards, who has been a rumored vice-presidential pick for Barack Obama, said in Denver on Tuesday he expects his crusade to reduce poverty to play a prominent role during the Democratic National Convention.

Edwards’ Half in Ten Tour, Houston, Tx., Wednesday, July 23.

Former U.S. Sen. John Edwards stopped in Houston Wednesday on a national tour to tout an anti-poverty campaign that aims to cut the number of the country’s poor in half in a decade.

Edwards, from North Carolina, said he would “fight with every fiber of my being” to help low-income Americans.

The former Democratic vice-presidential candidate and one-time presidential hopeful joined local community and political leaders in a private roundtable discussion on poverty, the foreclosure crisis and similar issues hosted by ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.

Edwards’ garbled response: the Enquirer was called “tabloid trash and lies”.

The blogosphere chattered about Edwards’ Love Child while Edwards remained mum, the MSM silent. Edwards “disappeared” from the press circuit until July 30 when he reappeared in Washington, D.C. at the AARP studio for a taped interview and symposium. After the symposium, Edwards used the rear entrance to leave the Hotel Monaco where he brushed off a reporter from the Charlotte Observer with a “Can’t do it now, I’m sorry”.

July 31: McClatchy News service publishes a story on the birth certificate of love child, Frances Quinn Hunter:

WASHINGTON — The birth certificate of a child whom a tabloid newspaper claims is linked to former Sen. John Edwards doesn’t identify a father.

The document, obtained through a routine records request, shows Frances Quinn Hunter was born Feb. 27 to Rielle Hunter, a videographer who worked on Edwards’ presidential campaign last year.

Despite the fact Edwards was in the midst of promoting his Half in Ten national poverty tour, the July 30th appearance at the AARP symposium in Washington, D.C. was Edwards’ last known public appearance.
