    To bad that sex sells. There are too many more issues that should be covered like the economy, war and the eroding middle class. I don't care who had sex with who, it's a personal issue and only puts money in the pockets of the tattle tales. I want to hear what's going to be done to get jobs for the unemployed and money in the pockets of the working class.

    I do not condone what Edwards did. However the Youngs sold their conscious and reputation to the devil for going along with it. How much money did they earn or spent on them for doing so. Now that they feel they didn't get what they deserve or promised, they come out with a "tell all" book. They are as guilty as John.

    Edwards cheated on his wife when she had cancer and undergoing kemo therapy.
    But is it really about cheating. Or is it miss use of Campaign funds.

    John Edwards was in a hotel in California with Hunter.
    There is a sex tape of very Pregnant Hunter with John. Yet before Hunter was that pregnant, John Edwards already told everyone that the affair was over. Really?

    Then there is the cost of a Hair Cut. News media try to locate where in California just a hair cut would cost $400.00. They searched high and low and were not able to find where he could have paid that much for a hair cut.

    So was that $400.00 which was written off in campaign funds as a hair cut, really used in the affair instead. John Edwards could be charged with miss use of campaign funds.

    All I know is if Glenn Emery is the smartest person ever. If he had a hand in this story, it is as good as the Gospel!

    What ever Edwards is guilty of isbetween him his family and God
    he will indeed suffer for his deeds and God will be the punisher.

    As for the greedy SICKO trying to make money from the
    dasteredly thing Edwards did and doing interviews
    rubbing it in the face of the family already suffering
    public humiliation I hope heends up broke and homeless.
