"The Edwards Disaster Is Not Going Away"
The Edwards Disaster Is Not Going Away.
[Don't want to hear it! LA-LA-LA-LA-LA!!!]
It’s getting worse, and it can cast a pall over the Democratic convention and our nominee.
If there’s one thing we learned about John Edwards watching Rielle Hunter’s video of the candidate reveling in his belief in himself as bullshitter-par-excellence, it’s that this man has no problem lying - even when he’s "leveling."
[He was lying before but now he is really, really telling us the truth .....BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!]
In Edwards’ bizarre ABC interview intended to damage-control the fiasco, his cavalier and downright creepy lying only opened up the door for further investigation, and his story stinks to high heavens. Most disturbing of all (and dangerous to the rest of our party) are the obvious questions of where Edwards got all the money to bankroll his affair with Hunter.
[His money man, Fred Baron, totally on his own and without any instructions from Edwards whatsover made big bucks monthly payments to Rielle Hunter and the "father" of her love child, Andrew Young, along with paying for mansion rent. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!]
Now the publication that broke and followed this story, that Edwards called "completely untrue" and "tabloid trash" while running for President and afterwards, has even MORE revelations on this revolting candidate.
[Drip! Drip! Drip! The National Enquirer has plenty more information that they are SLOOOOOWLY releasing over the next few weeks.]
The National Enquirer reports that Edwards' political operatives are still paying his mistress Rielle Hunter - and she was whisked away on a private jet two days before he confessed their extramarital affair on national television.
[The National Enquirer is simply allowing Edwards to try to lie his way out of this while holding on to documents that prove he is a liar.]
Where is this money coming from? Campaign finances? You can be damn sure Edwards and his campaign, and perhaps the DNC, will be investigated because of this. THIS will be the big convention story.
[All the DUmmie and KOmmie suckers who donated to the Edwards campaign were really paying for hush money for his mistress.]
The Enquirer also reports that:
"After Edwards confessed the affair to his wife, he restarted it, and was sexually involved with Rielle when she became pregnant."
["Honey, this affair is over forever...until it starts up again."]
"Despite his denials, Edwards WAS aware that his former finance committee chairman, Fred Baron, was funneling money to Rielle."
[And you can bet that the National Enquirer has information proving this.]
"Experts are now calling for a federal investigation into Edwards' use of campaign funds."
[Maybe he was just investigating poverty by setting up his mistress and "father" of his child in a multi-million dollar mansion.]
I know, I know. It’s the National Enquirer – a big f*cking joke. Let’s all smirk and pretend this isn’t true - the same way so many here on Daily Kos and in the mainstream media pretended that Edwards’ extramarital affair was "tabloid trash" until it was confirmed by Edwards.
[The National Enquirer SHOULD but probably WON'T be winning a Pulitzer Prize for this investigation.]
John Edwards is destroying what should be a time to focus on Barack Obama and the Denver convention. You can bet the Edwards disaster, and his continued lying – pouring lies upon lies – will cast a black cloud over Denver and all Democrats. And that’s assuming there aren't campaign finance violations involved, which seems VERY unlikely given the payoff amounts and durations involved.
[The Edwards scandal is why Obama, and not Hillary, will be receiving the nomination in Denver. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!]
Will Elizabeth be putting up another insulting post here on DKos pissily admonishing us to turn a blind eye and put our heads in the sand as John Edwards sullies our party and its nominee?
[That scandal that is destroying the Democrats...please ignore it. And now to watch the KOmmies attempt to ignore reality...]
[And stop telling us uncomfortable facts.]
This diary is a waste of cyberspace and eyeballs. Give it up, trollboy. No one cares what you think, no one cares who you like and don't like, nobody wants your opinions, your prejudices, your rancor, your vitriol or your anguished prose. Or pose.
[Stop with the reality check!]
That's a very serious charge, if true, and it would land Edwards in a whole lot of legal trouble. It deserves to be investigated.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
My choice is to dismiss it, and John Edwards, as just another disappointing bullshitter, and to regret that I sent him money I could not really afford during his primary bid.
[So how much money did you send to Bev Harris?]
I'm really angry about it, and I don't think this mess is going away either. I can't grasp how Edwards could have continued his Presidential bid knowing that his stupid dick was going to take us all down, lying to us constantly, and asking me for more money the night before he dropped out of the race.
[He had to ask you for that money to keep his mistress quiet.]
It's infuriating, and of course it makes me feel more vulnerable in my belief in Barack.
[HERETIC!!! The Obamassiah is infallible!]
LOL....ain't nobody investigating SHIT... the Democrats want this to go away and both Edwards, to go away.
[The MSM also just wants this to go away which is why they are doing NO original investigative reporting on this scandal.]
Sure, it's not going away FOR HIM. But for us, it's over. He has nothing to do with the convention or with our campaign.
[Wished the KOmmie really, really hard.]
Anyone talking about it now has a Republican political agenda. Rove? Schmidt?
Was all this hush money reported to the IRS? Did RH and AY think FB was going to pay them off the rest of their lives? And just wait when one of them cracks, when the mony train stops. My vote is on AY and CY singing first. And so will RH, once she realizes that JE has no intention of marrying her once his wife is "out of the picture."
[The will all eventually turn into songbirds once the money train stops.]
Don't listen to the Ostriches. They can't admit they were wrong, so now in their embarrassment, they just want the whole thing to go away. It can't and it won't. It's the elephant in the room. And it's not just the NE reporting on JE's lies, it's the NY Daily News, the NY Daily Post, etc.
[Thanx for the reminder. Not too long ago if you posted in KOmmieland about the Edwards scandal, you would be BANNED. Just ask Lee Stranahan.]
It's a shame but Edwards is history. I hope he can use the rest of his life in a productive manor, but it won't be in politics.
[There is now a good chance that Edwards will be losing his North Carolina manor either to his wife or mistress or both.]
