John Edwards is a cad

John Edwards and Rielle Hunter

John Edwards's former lover, Rielle Hunter, admits to having created a sex tape with Edwards.

Andrew young and his wife found a tape marked special when they went into a house that Hunter had occupied that was for sale. Hunter had been doing cinematography work for John Edwards and may have made the tape without Edwards knowledge.

The tape showed Edwards having sex with an unidentified  pregnant woman according to the Youngs. The Youngs claim the tape was out in the open.

"While we have not had an opportunity to view the interview or read the book, we urge extreme caution by everyone involved. From media reports, it is obvious that there are many allegations which are simply false. It appears that Andrew Young is primarily motivated by financial gain and media attention," said the statement released by Wade M. Smith and James P. Cooney III, attorneys for Edwards.

The statement comes a day after Hunter won a temporary restraining order that stops Young from releasing videos and photos she says are her property.

"In or about September 2006, using my video camera, I authored a personal video recording that depicted matters of a very private and personal nature," Hunter wrote in an affidavit filed Thursday, according to ABC News. "In 2006, I was also having an intimate relationship with Edwards."

The worst part of the story had nothing to do with the sex tape. The Youngs admitted both Edwards and Hunter had been openly planning a life together after Elizabeth Edwards died. Under the circumstances Elizabeth Edwards was certianly justified in leaving her unfaithful husband who was waiting for her to die and who had lied to her on several occasions. 

Rielle Hunter has a notrious backgound and had to change her name. Her real name is Lisa Jo Druck. "Brat Pack" novelist Jay McInerney said that his former-girlfriend Hunter is the basis for the lead character Alison Poole, "an ostensibly jaded, sexually voracious 20-year-old," in the 1988 novel Story of My Life. McInerney described their relationship and Hunter's role as the inspiration for the character in an interview in 2005.

McInerney also said that he chose to write about her and her friends because he was both "intrigued and appalled" by their behavior. The Story of My Life, which was about the life of a hard-partying young social climber.  The book had a sub plot that deals with the horse murders insurance fraud scandal. The FBI had been investiagating Hunter's father for electrocuting horses for insurance money.

John Edwards was a fool to get involved with Rielle Hunter . Edwards comes form a humble background that would appeal to many middle class and low income workers. He squandred away his political carrer and undoubtedly this scandal will affect his legal career as well. His disloyalty to a dieing wife makes him a contemptible person.
