Gosh, what a… uh… surprise:
For the first time, John Edwards is publicly admitting that he is indeed the father of a 2-year-old daughter conceived with Rielle Hunter, a campaign videographer with whom he had an affair.
In a written statement provided exclusively to NBC News, the former North Carolina senator and Democratic presidential candidate says heâ€™s taking responsibility for the child, Frances Quinn Hunter.
It was first suspected that the baby was fathered by Edwards back when a reporter for the National Enquirer spotted the child chasing an ambulance in her stroller.
Everybody knew it all along, of course. It wasn’t difficult to spot the resemblance:
Update: Edwards is in Haiti now. Jesse Jackson is there too.
Shouldn’t we be helping clean that place up instead of adding more slime to an already nasty situation?
