The Tangled Web

I'm not quite sure what to make of this woman, but upon first glance at her, my thoughts are not good.

Now who am I to judge her, really, but I truly believe this woman has some bad karma following her around. Rielle Hunter, her real name, Lisa Jo Druck, has lived a tough enough existence since meeting then Presidential candidate, John Edwards in a hotel bar in New York in 2006. She famously became his secret mistress and bore his love child in 2007. All by choice. You see, she has been weaving this web of tangles for quite some time and karma, as they say, can be a real bitch.

Ok, so what makes this situation more tawdry than most adulterous affair stories? The guy was running for President of the United States, while engaging in an adulterous affair with his so called "document-arian" who scored a $250,000.00 contract to film Edwards behind the scenes of his campaign. When his aides quickly realized her work was shoddy and unprofessional, the jig, behind the scenes was officially up. And up meaning everybody involved knew that Hunter and Edwards were doing the nasty on the quiet.


The guy was swimming in the biggest fishbowl of all, yet he continued to have a adulterous affair with this woman while continuing his campaign for President and doing so while his wife of many years battled cancer.

Talk about lying and cheating.

How do you live with yourself?

These two not only lived with themselves, they lived with Edwards trusted aide, Andrew Young, who is no better than them, and bilked the wealthy Edwards campaign supporters out of millions to keep the secret quiet. What did they think would happen? Did they really think that Edwards had a chance at the White House? And that if he won they would sneak Rielle and her baby in the back door of the Oval Office?

I'm sorry to say that they both deserve each other, Rielle and Edwards. It's the innocent children I feel sorry for. Elizabeth, may she rest in peace, got her revenge. After it was all revealed, she got rid of the biggest cancer of all, HIM, and went on with what was left of her life. As for Edwards and his mistress? These two continue to dredge up feelings of  lies and deceit wherever they go.

Edwards is a social and political pariah and Hunter? She's just a pariah. And I'm not quite sure what to make of that.

I had an affair with a married woman once, I didn't get jack shit. I'd better check with Errol.

This reads like a political novel! See of course there is a man who clearly thought he could do whatever he wanted without any remorse - no wonder he was a presidential candidate!

He's a complete narcissist who thought he could get away with whatever he wanted to - such a dumbass douchebag. As for her? You're right - they deserve each other. Ick.

It seems like all the politicians are lowlifes. US elections are all about making sure the worst one doesn't get elected.

I think he's a slime, but I don't think he committed election fraud.

I'm just glad he someone that so self absorbed didn't become POTUS.

Personally the outcome of the MA senate race of 2012 has more interest for me than Edwards as a man or candidate ever did. And yes if he could have ever gotten by Hillary, the Secret Service would have snuck his lover in or him out, wouldn't be the first time.

Men with power and authority are all dick and no brain.
