Edwards Denies Report Of Proposing to Rielle Hunter

CNN reports that an Edwards spokeswoman denies the earlier report that John Edwards has proposed to his mistress Rielle Hunter:

Former Sen. John Edwards’ spokeswoman flatly denied a story in the National Enquirer Wednesday that claimed the 2004 Democratic vice presidential nominee is engaged to his mistress, Rielle Hunter.

The Enquirer reported that Edwards proposed to Hunter on the day he told her that he would publicly acknowledge being the father of their child, Frances Quinn.

Edwards was taking steps to run for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination when he began his affair with Hunter, a videographer. The former senator denied that he was the father of Frances Quinn for more than a year, but he acknowledged paternity late last month.

Edwards and his wife, Elizabeth, have legally separated.

“John has said that when his divorce is final, he’ll buy her a diamond ring,” the Enquirer quotes a ‘close source’ in the story as saying about the marriage proposal. “But in the meantime, he’s getting them a house.”

But Joyce Fitzpatrick, an Edwards spokeswoman, said in an e-mail to CNN that the report was “absolutely untrue.”

This may or may not apply here, but it should be noted that several times in the past John Edwards has denied report published by The National Enquirer which were later verified as true.
