Uh oh, somebody forgot to make a copy for himself:
Ahead of his federal trial involving alleged campaign finance violations, John Edwards is asking a judge to keep a sex tape involving him and his mistress from being destroyed.
In a request filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Greensboro, Edwards asks that the court issue a stay in a settlement last week about the video involving Rielle Hunter and his former aide, Andrew Young.
Hunter sued Young and his wife in 2010 over the tape and other personal items the couple claimed she abandoned in a box of trash. Hunter lived with the Youngs in 2007, while she was pregnant with Edwards’ baby.
The Youngs agreed to give up their claim on the property, which has been in a courthouse vault. A Superior Court judge ordered that it be destroyed within 30 days of the settlement.
The sex tape lawsuit was settled about ten days ago,
Those who have seen the video say it begins with a close-up of the notorious vixen wearing a pink silk bathrobe and running fingers through flowing, full-bodied hair while soft, feminine eyes offer a “come hither” stare. Then the camera pans to Hunter.
