THE JOHN EDWARDS LOVE CHILD SCANDAL
COME IN CONTACT WITH THESE PEOPLE ANYTIME 2005-2010?
JOHN EDWARDS, ELIZABETH EDWARDS, ANDREW YOUNG, RIELLE HUNTER, FRED BARON
Tell us about it!
John Edwards, he of the "Two Americas" campaign, has already offered up two confessions: one on August 8, 2008, when he confessed to an affair with Rielle Hunter; and, another on January 10, 2008, in which he confessed paternity of Frances Quinn Hunter--in direct contradiction to his earlier confession.
Are there still further confessions for Edwards to make?
Such as, how was Hunter's living expenses--and they weren't cheap, what with being flown by private jets across (and out of) the country--paid and what money was used to pay them?
DBKP is adding to its extensive timeline of the Edwards' scandal and is inviting readers who came in contact with John Edwards, or any of the others involved in the Scandal, to share their personal accounts of all contacts they may have had; e.g., at book signings, town halls, campaign events, in hotels, at the grocery store, etc.
Readers' accounts may be left in the comments section of this article or, if its preferred, sent by email to email@example.com.
While the information unveiled in two recent books--John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's Game Change and Andrew Young's The Politician--have shed some light on a few of the details, we have reason to believe that some of those details still are fuzzy.
That's why we're asking for a little help from our readers. There's still a grand jury out there and there's still a bit of history to be written in the Scandal. We're looking for help.
On many occasions throughout the Scandal, our readers have steered us in the right direction with a mix of tips, background information and investigative work.
It was a tip by one of our readers which informed us that Rielle Hunter was staying in a house owned by ex-NBA player, Eric Montross. The tip was checked out and proved valuable.
Another reader tipped us in May 2008 to the fact that Hunter was no longer in North Carolina and had been moved to California. Several readers made valuable contributions as members of our "crack research department."
We are deeply thankful for our readers' tips--and now appeal to readers to share any other contacts during the last five years with any of the principles in the Scandal.
Of course, we'll keep all information as confidential as is desired by the tipster. Just indicate to us whether you want credit or not. Our default position is that we never reveal anything about our tipsters.
Thanks in advance and let's see what we turn up!
