It Depends on the Meaning of "Father"

It seems that John Edwards cannot stop lying. Thus, there's little reason to believe anything he reveals in tonight's broadcast other than the fact that he had an affair with Rielle Hunter, the mother of his latest child.

Edwards Admits Sexual Affair; Lied as Presidential Candidate

In ABC News Interview, Edwards Says He Cheated, but Did Not Father Child

August 8, 2008

John Edwards repeatedly lied during his Presidential campaign about an extramarital affair with a novice filmmaker, 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 44-year old Rielle Hunter, but said that he did not love her.
Edwards also denied he was the father of Hunter's baby girl, Frances Quinn, although the one-time Democratic Presidential candidate said he has not taken a paternity test.

Edwards said he knew he was not the father based on timing of the baby's birth on February 27, 2008. He said his affair ended too soon for him to have been the father.

A former campaign aide, Andrew Young, has said he was the father of the child.

.yes, i suppose it does...honorary class member, huh? that's an interesting bit of trivia that i never thought i'd learn from a silly blog entry. may i ask what's your concern regarding my apparent connection to vahsen's tavern? i just received your messages as i don't check my email often, and asking of my relation three times seems a bit odd coming out of the blue. were you one of "butch's" friends?
