Ruh-Roh… Hunter Family Wants One Trick Pony to Take Paternity Test
The family of John Edwards’ former mistress, Rielle Hunter, is challenging the former senator to take a DNA paternity test after his claim that he did not father Hunter’s 6-months-old child.
In the first reaction from Hunter’s family, her younger sister Melissa told ABC News that Edwards should immediately follow through on his pledge to take a paternity test.
“I would challenge him to do so,” the sister said.
“Somebody must stand up and defend my sister,” she said. “I wish that those involved would refrain from bad-mouthing my sister.”
In his interview with ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff acknowledging the affair, Edwards said he knew the child was not his because of “the timing” of the pregnancy and the affair.
“I would welcome participating in a paternity test,” Edwards said. “I’m only one side of the test, but I’m happy to participate in one.”
Hunter left her Santa Barbara home earlier this week in advance of Edwards’ ABC News interview.
It shouldn’t matter.
After all, he told us the baby was not his.
HotAir calls this “major blowback” for blowing his interview last night. Edwards attempted to salvage some shred of personal reputation at the expense of Rielle Hunter.
It didn’t go over too well with Hunter’s family.
