John Edwards and Rielle Hunter, the Movie

We knew that  John Edwards brought Rielle Hunter into his campaign as a film maker but it turns out that she made a a film that was previously kept secret. An upcoming book  by Andrew Young, an aide to John Edwards, includes information on a sex tape made by Edwards and Rielle Hunter:

Former Edwards aide Andrew Young says the ex-senator and his former mistress, Rielle Hunter, once made a sex tape, according to someone who has seen Young’s book proposal.

St. Martin’s Press just inked a deal with Young, who also says in his proposal that, contrary to his public statement last year, he is not the father of Hunter’s infant daughter — Edwards is. Edwards has denied that.

Young says that his belief in Edwards ran so deep that he agreed to take the fall for the candidate, inviting the pregnant Hunter to live with him, his wife, Cheri, and their three children. Later, after Hunter delivered the baby, Young and his family moved to a different home in California.

While he was unpacking, Young discovered a videocassette, according to the book pitch. Hunter had been hired by the Edwards campaign to videotape the candidate’s movements, but this one is said to have shown him taking positions that weren’t on his official platform.

The purported sex tape confirmed to Hunter that Edwards was even more reckless than he thought.

According to our source, Hunter confided to Young that she and Edwards talked about getting married should the candidate’s cancer-stricken wife, Elizabeth, pass away, even discussing what music they’d play at their wedding.

    My, as yet unsophisticated, blog from yesterday is about this very same matter.  A whole slew of names. Gee, if I said:  in my pocket I have a list of men who have graphite zippers, would that make me sound like our old friend Joe?

    Just more of the same type of neocon Republican rumors. Has everyone forgot that the neocon dirty trick machine went into full gear about a Michelle Obama tape that didn’t exist.

    The rightwing nutjobs railed for months about the tape, but no one every had it. It was always someone else, who knew someone else, who knew someone who saw it.

    In the end, the tape never existed and the lying neocons got their chance to sling mud through their own fabrications.

    My guess is that this tape is more of the same in order to take some of the heat off the sex crazed, hypocritical Republicans.

    You can’t blame the Republicans for this one. The story comes from an Edwards aide who was closely involved in the matter. The situation here is entirely different from the made up Michelle Obama tape.

    Leslie- Haven’t you heard, it is those 99% of men that give the 1% a bad name.

    Besides, the claims of the Michelle Obama tape started with the PUMAs and the Republicans latched on to it (not that there’s a meaningful difference between the PUMAs and the right).
