From the Enquirer, on the hush money:

"A super-rich pal – who was closely involved with the campaign finances – is helping John. It's likely this man doesn't know all the dirty details of John's extramarital affair, but is acting out of loyalty and is not asking a lot of questions – only writing the checks," revealed a source very close to the situation.

.... This same ['super-rich'] man is also shoveling cash to Edwards' pal and former aide Andrew Young – who tried to take the heat off the ex-Senator by claiming he is the father of Rielle's baby.

Edwards continues to not bother denying or otherwise commenting on any of the allegations, other than through the body language of physically running and hiding from Enquirer reporters (in a bathroom!) when first caught in the hotel.


Curiously, Hunter isn't denying or otherwise commenting on any of this either! But according to Radar she might soon do so:

We've also heard from multiple sources that a major TV network is currently in negotiations with Hunter to secure a primetime interview, which would be the first serious play the mainstream media has given the story. [Enquirer editor] Perel refused to confirm this as well.

Also via Radar (see prior link), the Washington Post and Huffington Post are anxiously awaiting pictures from the Enquirer's reporting, because it's not enough that Edwards isn't denying the affair or love child, Hunter isn't denying the affair or love child, a team of Enquirer reporters saw Edwards go in and out of the hotel to visit the love child and a security guard confirmed to Fox News that Edwards hid from the Enquirer team just like the tabloid said.

The publications are also hungry for photos even though pictures of Edwards in or near a hotel will prove precisely nothing scandalous, in and of themselves. Talk about missing the point.
