Are you kidding? It goes to MOTIVE. The leaker was paid BIG BUCKS, the high six figures for a story like this. Also, if this woman had any deal with Edwards, it's NULL AND VOID by her leaks. You can't have it both ways. You either take the money and shut up, or you lose the money if you leak. And of course, leakers only say what they want out, as was shown with Thomas they leave out THE REST OF THE STORY, such as unsourced DNA in the child's panties that hurts the $$$$$ value of their leaks.
Second, it goes to CREDIBILITY. HOW INTERESTING that Edwards is the only one that wants the paternity test. Hir backed down as soon as hir could. The Enquirer articles have been specific that HE is the father of the child. I hope he forces the issue.
I gotta disagree...motive? what motive? No crime has been committed here that we know of. And NULL and VOID is not appropriate as there's no way there is a written contract.
I don't think she backed down at all...you can't back down when you've never even mentioned a wish for a test to begin with. I think Edwards knew she wouldn't be part of a paternity test.
I'm not supporting her...but, lets face it she's not the first frizzy blond hanger on whose had a love child...
Edwards IMO is in this up to his "I'm so Pretty" haircut!

Candy ... I hope you are not implying the John Edwards is CREDIBLE. This Presidential wannabe was FORCED to expose himself to the American people for what he was ... a hypocrite ... a cheater and ... a liar. Then when you consider the H--- on Earth that his wife ... mother of his children ... has been forced to endure in regards to her battle with that unrelenting enemy called Cancer ... I contend that John Edwards lacks a conscience.

When all is said and done ... I believe that it is to Edwards' benefit that there is no paternity test. I suspect there is a hidden agenda. Edwards claims he is not the father of Rielle Hunter's baby girl and ... publicly agrees to a paternity test. Hunter is compensated for her refusal. Case Closed!

Edwards Ex-Mistress Rules Out Paternity Test; Strange Behavior Leaves Many Unanswered Questions in Edwards Affair

Financing Two Families

As for reports that Edwards is paying "hush money" to Hunter and Young, Edwards has stated that he never paid money to anyone to keep them quiet about the affair.

A source close to Edwards’ former campaign confirmed to FOX News reports that Fred Baron, a Dallas lawyer and former campaign finance chairman for Edwards, secretly provided financial help to both Hunter and Young. He apparently paid with his own funds and has told other news outlets Edwards did not know about the arrangement.

Edwards said he learned of the payments through reporters and that he "had no knowledge" of the payouts outside of that.

The payments reportedly have been towering —$15,000 a month to Hunter, according to reports, plus other payments to Young.

Edwards admits to affair after heated denials as candidate
By PETE YOST , Associated Press
Last update: August 9, 2008 - 5:21 AM

In 1999, when Edwards was a senator, he said of President Clinton and his affair with Monica Lewinsky:

"I think this president has shown a remarkable disrespect for his office, for the moral dimensions of leadership, for his friends, for his wife, for his precious daughter. It is breathtaking to me the level to which that disrespect has risen."

Geezzzz Pete......Here I thought there would be something about Hunter's Hawaii speech but ended up reading some posts that really amused for my own various reasons....

Oh well, this is just further proof that the many means of birth control, pills, Morning After shots, abstinence as in Candy's case, and condoms are not always the first thing a woman thinks about when she bags a man that she really shouldn't.

This whacko profitter, on Fox quoted in an email saying "I could never be in New York if I wasn't on drugs" and "If I went to a movie, I would have to change the seat 3 or 4 times as I felt everyone's "stuff."

The exact quote on Fox, from hir now deleted website, "Being is free": "Before, I was so sensitive to negative energy, ultra sensitive, like I would go to a movie theater and have to change seats four times because I would feel everybody's stuff. And it was just so uncomfortable and unbearable. I could never be in New York if I wasn't on drugs."

IMO Edwards is dispicable for cheating on his wife ... period!!! If he can betray the woman ... the mother of his children ... who he promised to love ... to cherish and ... to forsake all others ... what does that tell you about his promises as a politician to the American people.
IMO Hunter is just as despicable for having an affair with a married man ... period!!! Did she for one minute empathize with Edward's wife? It is the worst betrayal that one woman can bestow upon another.
Man, someone is still bitter about her husband cheating on her.

You don't need to cheat on your wife to be one who does not keep his promises as a politician to the American people.

You only hear about the ones that get caught. It is more then likely if you have voted, you have voted for several politicians that cheat on their spouses.

At least JE he didn't have his mistress killed like other politicians nor was he reaching under a toilet stall wall in a dirty mens room at an airport.

It matters NOT what Hunter says, does, writes, blogs, or profits

If John Edwards hadn't had an affair with her, we wouldn't be having this discussion

Candy seems to think that EVERY woman who beds a man or tattles about it is the bad one.

Just what responsibility does the man have? According to Candy....none. It's just a matter of time before Candy starts trashing Mrs. Edwards

Although I do hear that Hunter is a very nasty piece of work, at the end of the day John Edwards is responsible for ALL of this

As for the rest:

We'll just leave the men's room toilet stall capers to the Republicans. They seem to be fonder of "boys" anyway

It's more possible that Democrats gossiping about the Edwards rumors leaked the story,intentionally or not. Primaries tend to split up Democrats who had worked together on past campaigns into various camps. Some remain friendly with staff from other campaigns. Hot gossip is a temptation to pass around to a pal. It spreads to campaign workers higher-up, who decide to use it to weaken the opposition.

Or it could have been leaked deliberately by an Edwards campaign staffer who is more loyal to the party than to Edwards himself. If this scandal would break after Edwards received a party nomination or after he was put on the ticket as vice president, it would have been disastrous.

As I recall, the original story broke when Hillary, Obama and Edwards were still campaigning and debating. I heard on one of the TV cable news shows, not sure which, that one of the top Clinton supporters from Bill C's campaign had purchased one of the tabloids or company that owns the tabloid. Not sure if it was the Enquirer.

False. Edwards went to that hotel ALONE at 3:00 a.m. and a photo was taken from inside the room that had hir, Bob McGovern, and the baby. SHE is the leaker. SHE loathes Elizabeth Edwards. SHE is the profiteer who has been trying to peddle TV shows about extramarial affairs, etc.

RE: The Enquirer. It's owned by the right wing, directly connected to Arnold Schwarzenegger. As soon as it was bought by a company associated with Arnold, it DROPPED coverage of HIS extramarital affairs.

By the way, it's not just the sex, it's the cover-up. In politics, isn't it always?

If someone paid R.Hunter as a go-between, then a candidate would owe that person big-time. Depending upon who that person is, and what that person wants done or interests that person represents, that would be very important to know in a campaign.

At least a voter can look at lobbyists on staff and big contributions to get an idea of who "owns" other candidates. When a candidate is covering up a huge secret with help that involves cash flow, then the candidate becomes vulnerable to more than having his secret exposed.

By paid Hunter, I'm referring to her work as a videographer on the campaign, of course, and not the help from friends that was given her out of the goodness of their hearts that she received during her pregnancy. :)

The real ISSUE here is the adulterous relationship

Now that it is out in the open, EVERY news media outlet around the world is reporting it. The Enquirer reported it first. So what?

Again, the issue is John Edwards affair. It's true and at some point is just no longer any of our business. His career will be over, his credibility is done and the rest of it is just fodder for ratings. This is NOW his family's personal problem, not ours

Candy and the rest of the country should be getting back to the matters that really count

Our young men are still dying in Iraq and elsewhere for no credible reason

Our infrastructure is crumbling

Our air continues to be unfit to breathe

Our citizens can't afford gas, food, medicine, doctors, or their mortgages

To obsess about Hunter's "profits" or leaks shows a sad existence
