John Edwards: Je Confess
JOHN Edwards, has used the non-denial denial in regard to an affair with one Rielle Hunter’s and the child it – get this – allegedly produced. Says honest John:
“Two years ago I made a very serious mistake, a mistake that I am responsible for and no one else. In 2006, I told Elizabeth about the mistake, asked her for her forgiveness, asked God for his forgiveness. And we have kept this within our family since that time.”
Does God get a vote?
In 2006, I made a serious error in judgment and conducted myself in a way that was disloyal to my family and to my core beliefs.”He also said, “In the course of several campaigns, I started to believe that I was special and became increasingly egocentric and narcissistic. If you want to beat me up — feel free. You cannot beat me up more than I have already beaten up myself.”
So there is no point in trying. But the child. The child is not mine:
He denied fathering a daughter, born to the woman with whom he had the affair, and offered to be tested to prove it. A former Edwards campaign staff member professes to be the father.
Who believes him?
