Edwards to move ex-mistress closer to help raise love child

By Super Admin

Washington, Aug.20 (ANI): Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards has said that he will move the mother of his love child into his North Carolina neighborhood so he can help raise their 18-month-old baby.

According to the National Enquirer, which was the first to crack the story on Edwards affair with campaign aide Rielle Hunter, the former candidate's wife, Elizabeth Edwards, who is stricken with cancer, was furious when her husband told her of his parenting plans.

With a secret DNA test proving Edwards is the father of Hunter's daughter, Frances, Edwards is expected to admit his paternity before the end of an ongoing criminal investigation into whether his campaign illegally paid her to keep quiet about their affair, according to a TV news station in North Carolina.

Hunter apparently agreed to testify to a federal grand jury investigating whether Edwards broke campaign finance law by paying "hush" money to Hunter and another aide who claimed paternity of the child. Hunter was spotted last week in Raleigh, N.C., entering a federal courthouse, where she spent nine hours.

Edwards has admitted to an affair with Hunter that he says ended in 2006. That year, Edwards' political action committee paid Hunter's video production firm 100,000 dollars for work. Then the committee paid another 14,086 dollars on April 1, 2007.
