John Edwards' Love Child Scandal Threatens Obama …Update: Edwards Confesses to Affair- But He's Not Baby's Daddy(?)
Democrats are concerned the love child scandal may hurt their candidate Obama.
Once again it is the British media that leads the way on this HUGE Democratic scandal.
The corrupt and biased US media still refuses to report on this story.
Ann Coulter said the media’s reaction to the John Edwards’ “love child” scandal has been reminiscent of the Soviet press. True.

Today The Daily Mail reported:
Barack Obama’s supporters yesterday tried to distance him from a potentially damaging sex scandal.
His possible running mate John Edwards faced renewed suggestions that he had a love child.
Mr Edwards was ordered to come clean on rumours of an affair with a campaign aide or stay away from the party.
Party organisers are furious that Mr Edwards – a major Democrat figure – has refused to deny that he is the father of Rielle Hunter’s daughter Frances.
Mr Edwards, 55, dropped his own bid for the presidency in January after coming a distant third behind Mr Obama and Hillary Clinton, but he had been expected to make a rousing speech at the Denver convention later this month.
Rumours that Mr Edwards, whose wife Elizabeth is battling breast cancer, fathered the child were ignored by the mainstream media until yesterday when the National Enquirer printed a grainy photograph allegedly showing Mr Edwards cradling the baby in a Los Angeles hotel room last month.
Mr Edwards dismissed earlier Enquirer stories about his affair with Miss Hunter, a 44-year-old campaign videographer, as ‘tabloid trash’.
The magazine released the ‘spy-cam’ photo supposedly showing Mr Edwards inside the hotel room on July 21 as proof.
When reporters confronted him in the lobby he fled into the men’s toilets and refused to come out until he was rescued by security guards.
…By yesterday afternoon newspapers, television stations and websites across America were running the story – infuriating Democratic leaders who want the focus to remain on Mr Obama, the 47-year-old Illinois senator who will square off against Republican John McCain in the November 4 election.
This is interesting…
Doug Ross is covering the hush money angle to the story.

UPDATE: John Edwards confesssed today.
John Edwards repeatedly lied during his Presidential campaign about an extramarital affair with a novice filmmaker, the former Senator admitted to ABC News today.
In an interview for broadcast tonight on Nightline, Edwards told ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff he did have an affair with 44-year old Rielle Hunter, but said that he did not love her.
Edwards also denied he was the father of Hunter’s baby girl, Frances Quinn, although the one-time Democratic Presidential candidate said he has not taken a paternity test.
It sounds like another lie.
