John Edwards admitted today that he had an affair with Rielle Hunter, a 42 year old campaign worker. Edwards denied these rumors while running for President. Elizabeth Edwards has been suffering with cancer however John Edwards made sure to mention she was in remission when the affair occured. She has now been diagnosed with terminal career.
The affair occured in 2006 and Edwards says he is not the father of Miss Hunter's baby because he the timing of the affair and the baby's birth don't add up. In other words it had more than 9 months since he had slept with her, according the John Edwards.
There are alot of sites that go into this in-depth, but this isn't going to be one of them. Edwards made a terrible decision by cheating on his wife. It probably has cost him any chance to run for office in 2012, or even to have a role at this year's Democratic Convention or any role in any future Democratic Administration. His political career is over. How this affects his marriage is between John and Elizabeth.
