Is this really happening?

The fact that a denial has to be released about a couple that's expecting a child...


Statement On Behalf Of Andrew Young
December 19, 2007

As confirmed by Ms. Hunter, Andrew Young is the father of her unborn child.

Senator Edwards knew nothing about the relationship between these former co-workers, which began when they worked together in 2006.

As a private citizen who no longer works for the campaign, Mr. Young asks that the media respect his privacy while he works to make amends with his family.

Pamela J. Marple
Attorney for Mr. Young


Update [2007-12-19 15:55:34 by Jerome Armstrong]:baaaaa, from the comments:

Sorry, Occams razor may work for us, but full and public statement from both the father and mother ain't good enough for Mickey Kaus. He's gonna need a full gynecolgical exam from Ms. Hunter in the Slate lobby, pronto.

Lets be grown ups

Where there is smoke there is often fire.  So I can't blame anyone for looking into these seemingly bizarre set of circumstances.

I still say the Enquirer has to show some proof or go away.  They say they have it.  Show us an email, give up the name of the girl's friend who is talking.

If not, if they can't or won't, I would say Edwards has done no wrong.

Re: Lets be grown ups

What is so bizarre about any of this?  Two people, both working on a presidential campaign, apparently entered into an affair that has now produced a child.  There is ZERO evidence that Edwards is involved.  In fact, ALL the evidence indicates that he has NOTHING to do with anything.  Given all of that, your response is that "where this is smoke there is often fire."  That's ridiculous.  Absent something credible, this is beyond the pale and -- here's an analogy you should understand -- is akin to the GOP smear saying Bill and Hillary killed Vince Foster.  Both are simply evil accusations to make and shouldn't be tolerated by anyone who calls themself a Democrat.

If he's so close the Edwards why did he leave the campaign?

If the Edwards were going to get some other guy to claim to be the father, wouldn't it make sense to get somebody particularly loyal?

That said, I'm on the same page as most people here. Until there's proof that can be independently verified, it seems unreasonable to make the people involved deny unsourced rumors.

We've got to get beyond these petty differences and focus on real issues like-- like-- like-- ...oh...he said "Occam's" razor.   Never mind.   Unless Occam has made illegal campaign contributions from a madrassa somewhere, in which case, game back on.

Re: Was this story getting traction

There were "rumors" from unreliable sources, just like the "rumors" that Obama might have been behind the 9/11 terrorists or that Hillary Clinton shot Janet Reno just to watch her die.

Completely unreliable, irresponsible rumors, mostly made up by Republicans. But, you know, the responsible mainstream media needs to report on these rumors over and over because, after all, they're newsworthy. And the real story, to be discussed over and over, is that if these rumors are repeated enough they might cause harm to the (always Democratic candidates', funny how that works) campaigns...

Re: Is this really relevant?

I would not trust the enquire magazine since they are mostly a gossip magazine.

Ayway , rasmussen has Clinton leading by 3-4% , but Obama leads among the "certain to attend" caucus goers.

Obama also leads among the "2004 caucus attendees" which is a huge blow for Edwards since his supporters kept suggesting that he has the most experienced caucus goers who attended in 2004...

Keep in mind that this is at least the third poll which shows Edwards does not have any edge among people who participated in 2004 caucus.

The only good news for Edwards is that he leads among 'second choice' BUT Obama is not far behind.
Edwards 28
Obama   23
Richardson 15
Hillary 15

this poll may showHillary with the lead , but the fact that she's STILL doing so poorly among second choices is a big problem.

The narrative of an Edwards rise is just bullshit.

Hillary and Obama seems to start pulling away from him big time.

Ive heard how when you tighter-screened polls favors Edwards , but polls after polls have shown that the tighter screened poll , the better it is for Obama.

by Prodigy 2007-12-19 10:43AM | 0 recs
Re: Is this really relevant?

Or we could talk up the poll showing Edwards leading from yesterday with Clinton in second with the most committed support, and we could paint a totally different narrative then the one you just did.

Polls smolls at this point.

It is moved into the final phase where the ground game will tell the story.

I'd be intereste to hear what many of the canvassers are saying.  I have heard it is down mainly to Edwards and Clinton among the undecideds.  That is that many undecideds are telling the door knockers that they are looking at either Edwards or Clinton at this point.

Re: Is this really relevant?

It becomes bullshit when one keeps insisting that Obama is clearly ahead.

Any of the Top 3 contenders can win Iowa.

That's really the Non-Bullshit story.

Polls are not bullshit. All these contradicting polls are actually showing us that its anybody's ballgame.

But some fans keep on giving their bias point of view that their candidate is ahead.

Obama can easily finish 1st in Iowa. But he could also easily find himself in 3rd place. Same goes for JRE  & HRC.

Unfair to all involved

Andrew Young is a friend of mine, and to see him and his family, as well as Ms. Hunter, dragged through the mud by the national enquirer is tremendously depressing.

He is a good and talented person who obviously made a mistake.  It's a private matter and should remain so.

By the way, my challenge to Mickey Kaus to meet me somewhere and make his statements in a forum where people can respond still stands.  The fact that a friend of mine is involved in this story just makes me even angrier at the sleaze merchants like Kaus.

Re: Is this really happening?

How about young take a blood test to show the enquire magazine that the child is indeed his and this would completly take the heavy load off Edwards.

They should make a deal..Young should ask  for a million dollar if the child is found to be his , not Edwards and the enquire should shut downn their door for good.

The fact that Young and the lady rejected the patternity test will only raise suspicious , not calm anything.

Ive heard from some Edwards supporters how Obama's muslim ties could hurt him in the general , but now , you could make a strong case that as long as the enquire story is not completly proven the lady's baby is not Edwards's , this story will stay alive and you better believe the GOP will make sure it is part of the general election.

Re: Is this really happening?

it's not a "couple" expecting a child. Young is married and has children of his own. Hunter's unborn child was rumored to have been fathered by Edwards. Young is a good friend of Edwards', had been with him in various capacities since 1998. He was the campaign's Director of Operations. Yes, the National Enquirer is engaging in baseless rumor-mongering. But the actual facts apparently compelled Young to issue this statement, possibly hoping that it would put the Edwards as daddy rumor  to rest.

Something tells me it does.  This isn't a 30 lb baby story.  They made some very simple, very straightforward, very direct charges against Edwards.   Edwards is a skilled attorney remember.

You never know, his wife could have thought, well shit, my husband really fucked up but we can't make this woman have this child alone, we will support her, he got her pregnant.

Some people think that way.

Re: Is this really happening?

This story showed up on my Google News Reader today as published in tabloids and some other rags that I had never heard of, I would think that was enough to give it legs on the net and cause the denial to be issued.

Rielle videos back up on Webcastr.com.

Whatever the outcome, the videos are back up on the web.  Here is a link to the four webisodes that Rielle Hunter produced for Edwards that seemingly got the whole ball rolling.  Not sure what it proves but you certainly can take a look for yourself.

Am I the only one who sees conspiracy?

Last week, The Enquirer's headline was:

STEADMAN HAS HAD ENOUGH W/OPRAH?
(and OBAMA was to blame)

This week it's JOHN EDWARDS.

DO you REALLY think it's a coincidence?

Do you REALLY think it's a coincidence considering that a huge Clinton booster just BOUGHT THE ENQUIRER?

Come on, people.

IF the Edwards campaign takes it up, then it becomes a 'legitimate' story, because right now, the ' legitimate' press could only say,
' According to the National Enquirer'.

AS soon as the Edwards camp issues a DENIAL, then they could lead with ' The Edwards camp issued a denial about the story of John Edwards having a love child.'

I'm sorry, but I'm a tinfoil hat conspiracy theorist like that.
