  • Edwards Admits Sexual Affair; Lied as Presidential Candidate

    John Edwards repeatedly lied during his Presidential campaign about an extra-marital affair with a novice film-maker, the former Senator admitted to ABC News today.

    "The story is false, it's completely untrue, it's ridiculous," Edwards told reporters then.

    He repeated his denials just two weeks ago.

    So?

    Bush lied and denies and refuses to tell the whole story about his drug and alcohol use/abuse.

    Again, as long as he isn't snorting coke in the Oval Office, so?

    These are private matters that you or I anybody else have no business even bringing up. They want to deny or lie about their private affairs? Let them. The only reason they lie is because they can't go over and kick our butt for even bringing it up.

    Edit.

    If the person is claiming to be morally superior to everybody else and is using that as a selling point then they might be fair game. Might, depends on how they do this.

      Yes, lying about sex is much much worse than lying about torture, reasons for war, disaster preparedness or oil. Or at least that seems to be the implication of this post. Personally I'd rather a lie that costs me nothing than one that costs $12 billion a month. But that's just me. I'd prefer no lies, but we all know that that's essentially impossible.

      But you're a gentleman and a patriot for sharing this with us. Godspeed in your pursuit of Lying Liars with D's following their names!

      Oh and if this wasn't flame bait, then my apologies. ;)

        Apology accepted. All I did was quote the article, but your predictable response attacking me instead was, well predictable.

          It's his own personal business and should not be brought to public light unless it absolutely has to.

            I completely agree. This is something between him and his wife, and nothing that should concern anybody who doesn't know Edwards personally. I think it's pretty sad that the public is interested in the private life of more-or-less-famous persons.

              Like telling people that they need to evaluate "the inside" of a candidate more than their money or political skill?

              I would absolutely require that the person I was voting for is someone I believe is honest and sincere and has integrity, he said. We don't need the world's next great politician as president. What we need is someone we can trust.

                          His wife probably arranged it.

                              Exactly. So what.
                              Honestly, it's not uncommon for spouses to arrange or turn a blind eye to their loved-ones having affairs while they're ill (Edwards' wife has cancer). It can be viewed as a gutless act, yes. But it happens. (hell, maybe they had a 3-some going, or some understood love triangle)

                              On the flipside, it's also not uncommon for a spouse to allow the affair, just to dig into a hefty amount of money through extortion (either before or during a divorce). It can be viewed as a gutless act, yes. But it happens.

                              Judging the entirety of the situation, I give this about a 20% chance of just simply being Edwards "cheating" on his wife.
