John Edwards Called Rielle Hunter a “Crazy Slut”

Well the John Edwards trial is now underway and some facts are beginning to emerge about the extent Democrat John Edwards went to in his efforts to hide his mistress from his cancer-riddled wife. You can’t help but shake your head reading about these ridiculous antics. Also, a Virginia widow, Rachel Mellon, aged 101, was complicit in helping John Edwards acquire the donations necessary to hide Rielle from the public’s eye.

Virginia Millionaire Heiress Bunny Mellon Illegally Funneled Cash to John Edwards

From the DailyMail here:

Former senator John Edwards launched a verbal attack on his mistress Rielle Hunter when he found out she was pregnant, calling her a ‘crazy slut’, his former aide testified today.

Andrew Young told the court Edwards was ‘very angry and concerned’ when he found out about the baby in 2007 and told Young there was only a one-in-three chance the baby was his. He also told the court about the intricate system of check writing used to hide funds given to Edwards my millionaire Rachel ‘Bunny’ Mellon, which he said ‘felt and smelled wrong’ even though he was assured it was all legal.

Mellon had offered to help Edwards with campaign expenses after he took a beating in the press for his expensive haircuts. Young said he did not tell her the money would be used to cover expenses for Edwards’ mistress, who had threatened to go public about their relationship.
‘I told (Mellon) that we had a non-campaign expense that would benefit Mr Edwards, and we needed her help,’ Young told the court.

Mellon eventually wrote seven checks totaling $725,000 to her interior decorator. The decorator then sent the checks to Young’s wife to co-sign using her maiden name. In the checks’ memo lines, Mellon used descriptions such as ‘chairs’ and ‘antique Charleston table’, government exhibits showed.

Edwards says he did not know about the money from Mellon, but Young said the two men discussed seeking the payments and whether the arrangement using the decorator and Young’s wife was legitimate for a presidential campaign.

Wow, this is straight up money laundering involving Young, his wife, Old Lady Mellon, her interior decorator, and ultimately, John Edwards. How can any of these people possibly think it was okay to funnel payments this way?

Continuing…

Andrew Young worried about secretly using money from wealthy donors to support the former U.S. Senator’s pregnant mistress during the candidate’s 2008 presidential bid. Young told jurors how he coordinated three-way phone calls between himself, Edwards and Hunter to keep the affair secret from Edwards’ wife, Elizabeth. Hunter also met up with John Edwards at hotels on the campaign trail. Hunter for a time worked as a videographer for Edwards’ campaign, but she lost her job after Edwards’ wife found out about the affair.

Young and his wife invited the pregnant Hunter to live in their home near Chapel Hill and later embarked with her on a cross-country odyssey as they sought to elude tabloid reporters trying to expose the candidate’s extramarital affair. Young and Hunter ended a two-year legal battle over ownership of a sex tape the mistress recorded with Edwards during the campaign.

‘It wasn’t just a marriage on the line,’ said prosecutor David Harbach. ‘If the affair went public it would destroy his chance of becoming president, and he knew it. …He made a choice to break the law.’

Prosecutors will seek to prove he sought and directed the payments to cover up his affair, protect his public image as a ‘family man’ and keep his presidential hopes viable.

You know, if this wasn’t all so disgustingly sleazy, it would make for a gripping movie or miniseries. This has it all- drama, the chase, the sex, the blackmail, the money laundering- almost sounds like a Sopranos episode. But instead, Hollywood makes retarded movies about Sarah Palin. Also note that this is from a UK newsrag, not a US publication.
