John Edwards Proposes to Rielle Hunter

It seems to be a pretty safe bet that John Edwards has given up all thought of making a political comeback after this story. The National Enquirer (which, despite its reputation, has been right from the start on this story) reports that he has asked Rielle Hunter to marry him:

John Edwards has proposed to his mistress Rielle Hunter, and is buying a luxury $3.5 million beachfront home where they can live happily ever after with their love child, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively.

The disgraced presidential candidate popped the question at the same time he told Rielle that he’d be issuing a press statement finally confirming he fathered her daughter Frances Quinn, close sources told The ENQUIRER.

Edwards, 56, released that statement on Jan. 21, and just six days later a spokesperson for his cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth confirmed the couple had legally separated after 32 years of marriage. Sources say they expect to be officially divorced within a year, paving the way for the ex-senator to make Rielle, 45, his wife.

    Hmmm, that’s a very interesting way that Rielle Hunter is carrying her daughter …. I wonder if John Edwards tought her that hold??  Poor little girl, being raised up with parents like that.  For sure, these two looney birds are made for each other.

    Can you imagine if this slimeball had become PotUS or VicePotUS??  What a First Lady Rielle would make!

    I am a resident of NC and I knew Edwards was a sleaze when he ran for senator.  Couldn’t the people of the US see through his unctuous grin?

    I had been blogging about how sleazy a politician he is starting well before the Rielle Hunter story broke. While a few liberal bloggers agreed back then, it took the scandal for most people to really see through him.
