John Edwards Is The Father

Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards admits in a written statement that he is the father of Frances Quinn Hunter, the 1-year-old daughter of his former mistress, Rielle Hunter.

“I am Quinn’s father. I will do everything in my power to provide her with the love and support she deserves,” Edwards, a former senator from North Carolina and John Kerry’s 2004 running mate, said in the written statement. “It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me.” Elizabeth Edwards reportedly wants to meet Quinn. Rielle is asking nearly $18,000 a month for child support to avoid a nasty court battle.

Edwards had an affair while his wife, Elizabeth, battled cancer. Quinn is almost 2. Previous reports have claimed that a secret DNA test proved Edwards’ paternity to the child. The test was taken after Hunter tried to get financial help from Edwards for Frances. Edwards admitted in August 2008 to an affair with Hunter that he says ended in 2006. That year, Edwards’ political action committee paid Hunter’s video production firm $100,000 for work. Then the committee paid another $14,086 on April 1, 2007.

Edwards recently went on a “sex-and-booze” bender, and tried to bring home 34-year-old bartender Stephanie Breshears and women young enough to be his daughter. Breshears revealed that Edwards repeatedly tried to get her to go back to his house for sex…. [Bresears] said Edwards hit on her “for four consecutive nights” at the local Kornerstone Bistro.
