John Edwards Admits Affair With Rielle Hunter


John Edwards repeatedly lied during his Presidential campaign about an extra-marital affair with a novice film-maker, the former Senator admitted to ABC News today.

In an interview for broadcast tonight on Nightline, Edwards told ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff he did have an affair with 42-year old Rielle Hunter, but said that he did not love her.

His argument that he isn't the father sounds really shaky, as well as the payoff story. What an amazingly irresponsible, immoral and reckless thing to do -- I mean, this is a guy who was running for president.

Bullet dodged.
