John Edwards Admits to Lying about Affair
In an interview with ABC News, former Democratic presidential contender John Edwards has admitted to having an affair with Rielle Hunter.
However, the former Senator denies that he is the father of Hunter’s child, in contrast to media speculation suggesting otherwise.
This admission comes after Edwards claimed that rumors of an extramarital affair were false.
When pressed by media last month, the politician replied, “I have no idea what you are asking about. I have responded consistently to these tabloid allegations by saying I don’t respond to these lies.”
According to CNN, Edwards reveals he has not taken a paternity test. He claims the timing of Rielle Hunter’s daughter’s birth establishes that he couldn’t be the father.
