The National Enquirer is reporting that John Edwards not only has engaged in a secret affair with a former campaign worker, but that she is pregnant with his child. Rielle Hunter, is pregnant with a child that is being claimed by Andrew Young, a political operative who has been close friends with Edwards for years. The rumor is that Young is speaking out to cover for Edwards in an effort to protect the presidential hopeful’s reputation. A source close to Hunter revealed to the tabloid, “Rielle has said from the beginning that the baby is John’s, but she appears willing to do whatever they want her to do to protect his candidacy.” For now, the 43-year-old divorcÃ©e has moved from the New York area to Chapel Hill, NC and is now living in a rental home in the same neighborhood as Andrew Young. Oh lord, you just know all kinds of stuff is going to start coming up with the campaigns gearing up. At least it will be entertaining, what with the writers strike going on.
