While a grand jury is deciding whether John Edwards misused campaign funds to cover up his affair with mistress Rielle Hunter, it appears that Elizabeth Edwards, despite suffering from terminal breast cancer, has decided to take matters into her own hands.
According to a report by the New York Daily News, the wife of the former North Carolina senator and one-time vice-presidential nominee has been reportedly talking to a divorce attorney and targeting Hunter in blog comments where she uses the pseudonym “Cherubim.”
Although “Cherubim,” who has left numerous vicious comments about Hunter, painting her as a blackmailing gold digger, recently described herself as an African-American woman, a source close to Edwards insists, “It’s Elizabeth. She’s used ‘cherubim’ as a password. Look at the gravestone of their son Wade: It’s an angel holding a boy.” (NY Daily News)
