Update: NYT covers Edwards imminent admission of paternity; Mickey Kaus nailed it on Edwards Paternity and PR repair story…

brand_lowlife_xUpdate: 9/19/09: Oh look the NYT has decided to help float trail balloons for that lowlife frakker Breck Boy to admit paternity. They devote a 2 page piece to this now, after Edwards served his purpose- a stalking horse to draw votes away from Hillary in Iowa and afterward. What an utter dirtbag Edwards is. A genuine POS with no redemptive qualities I can see at all.

(…)According to people familiar with the grand jury investigation, prosecutors are considering a complicated and novel legal issue: whether payments to a candidate’s mistress to ensure her silence (and thus maintain the candidate’s viability) should be considered campaign donations and thus whether they should be reported. When Mr. Edwards was running for president, and even later when he still held out hope of a senior cabinet position in the Obama administration, two of his wealthy patrons, through a once-trusted Edwards aide, quietly provided Ms. Hunter with large financial benefits, including a new BMW and lodging, that were used to keep her out of public view.

Uhm we call it HUSH MONEY in mainstream America. Isn’t taking money from donors to keep your mistress’ mouth shut  a conspiracy to commit fraud or something? He certainly defrauded the Democrats who voted for him in the primaries and caucuses, and he helped Obama gang up on Hill in that SC debate. Evil bastard. The article suggests it is not a CRIME to defraud the FEC in election donations, Guess Obama donors DOODAD and DOODADPRO can sleep soundly. Why isn’t Edwards disbarred? Here is one of my fave quotes, picture Breck Boy, Mr. ‘my daddy worked in a mill’, telling Rielle they just have to wait for Elizabeth TO DIE:

…In the proposal, which The New York Times examined, Mr. Young asserts that he assisted the affair by setting up private meetings between Mr. Edwards and Ms. Hunter. He wrote that Mr. Edwards once calmed an anxious Ms. Hunter by promising her that after his wife died, he would marry her in a rooftop ceremony in New York with an appearance by the Dave Matthews Band..

Here is further evidence of just what whackos these 2 are:

Ms. Hunter gave her daughter the middle name Quinn, and people who have spoken with her said its resemblance to the Latin prefix for five was to proclaim that the baby was Mr. Edwards’s fifth child. (He had four with Mrs. Edwards, the oldest of whom was killed in a car accident).

Jeebus she is naming the kid in code. Does she think she is in a Dan Brown novel? And Elizabeth is nothing more than an enabler, period. She knew about this in the photo below, when they gave their big, poor me presser saying Elizabeth’s cancer was back but Breck Boy would CARRY ON his campaign anyway, knowing all the while he was NOT VIABLE to win the General Election. And this POS talked a LOT about Big Dawg. Frakkin hypocrite.

Pathetic bunch of people, taking money from poor Americans in campaign donations when HE KNEW and Elizabeth also knew this was waiting to blow up and eliminate his chance of being elected. Poor people gave him their money and he railed about Two Americas, maybe he saw one for each of  his two faces. He is disgusting.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - MARCH 22:  Elizabeth Edwards listens to her husband, Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards speak at a news conference concerning the return of her cancer March 22, 2007 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Elizabeth said that the former U.S. senator would continue his run for the presidency.  (Photo by Sara D. Davis/Getty Images) Cuz nothing could be allowed to stand in the way of Breck Boy's wgo right Liz? Not your cancer, not his affair, not the fact that he would drag the whole party down, nothing. Frakkers.

Go show Mickey some love, he outlines the total hackery of KOSKIDZ and assorted others during the primaries…

KausFiles:

….Please do not forget that in his August, 2008 Nightline ‘confession,’–“I take full responsibility”–Edwards didn’t just deny paternity but said paternity was “not possible” because the affair with Hunter was over when the baby must have been conceived. To do otherwise would have interfered with his carefully crafted modified limited story about the affair–that it involved “a short period in 2006” and ended before Elizabeth’s cancer recurred and before he went galavanting around the country advertising his fidelity and good character. If Edwards is in fact the father this entire fallback edifice of BS crumbles. … It’s worth reading the transcript of the ABC interviewpractically every sentence out of Edwards’ mouth is a lie. He doesn’t know who the baby was in the Enquirer‘s photos, suggests the photos were doctored, doesn’t know whether Andrew Young, the aide who took the fall, is the father, says Rielle Hunter’s hiring as a videographer had nothing to do with the affair, etc.. And he does it all sanctimoniously….
