John Edwards Finally Comes Clean about daughter with mistress

Former Senator John Edwards (D-NC)


Washington (CNN) — Former U.S. Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina has admitted that he fathered a girl with his mistress.

“I will do everything in my power to provide her with the love and support she deserves,” Edwards said in a statement.

The former 2008 Democratic presidential candidate previously denied that he was the girl’s father.

Edwards earlier admitted that he had an affair with Rielle Hunter while he was campaigning for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Edwards’ campaign paid Hunter $114,000 to make a series of short videos about his presidential campaign, and she traveled extensively with the candidate’s entourage. Read More.

Well, it’s about freaking time John! Our sympathies go out to Elizabeth and the rest of his children.

    “I am Quinn’s father…It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me.”

    The child has released her own statement, saying she’d like to return to living the lie.
