A former aide to John Edwards who once claimed that he fathered Rielle Hunter’s baby is now trying to sell a tell-all book revealing that the former senator and one-time vice-presidential nominee is, in fact, little Frances Quinn’s dad.
In his book proposal that he is hawking to publishers, Andrew Young also wrote that Edwards promised Hunter that the two would marry after the death of Edwards’ wife, Elizabeth, who is currently battling breast cancer.
Despite Edwards’ adamant denials that he is the child’s father, investigators are currently reviewing his campaign finances after allegations were made about political donors having given “hush money” payments to Hunter. (NY Daily News)
