Andrew Young Has Until Friday To Turn Over John Edwards Sex Tape

John_Edwards At a hearing earlier this week, a judge ordered former John Edwards' aide Andrew Young and his wife Cheri to be jailed under contempt of court for not handing over a sex tape featuring John Edwards and his mistress, Rielle Hunter.  The judge then changed his mind and gave them Friday to do so. 

The Judge also believes the Youngs are not being truthful about how they have handled the tape since it has been in their possession, and wants a full accounting by them. "There were things told to the court under oath, in affidavits, in testimony that turned out to be inaccurate. Right now, part of me says they didn't tell me the truth before in this court," Superior Court Judge Abraham Penn Jones said.

Young's lawyers maintain that he turned over all copies of the tape to the court last month, except for a copy of the tape that was given to the FBI in Washington, D.C., as part of a grand jury investigation into Edwards' campaign finances. Hunter's lawyers produced a new affidavit from freelance journalist Roger Draper, who said in a statement that Young showed him the tape in March 2009. Young failed to mention in his own affidavit that Draper had been shown the tape. His lawyers cited memory lapse for the oversight. The court battles over the sex tape have been going on for a month. Wouldn't you have just handed it over already? Hunter has also filed suit against the Youngs to seek damages for invasion of privacy.


Elizabeth Edwards is said to be thrilled by this turn of events, having been blasted by Young in his book, The Politician, which I for one am dying to read. For some reason, this whole story just fascinates me. Did John Edwards really think he was going to get away with this? And he paid someone to hide his mistress and claim the baby was his? And this guy agreed? And now we are supposed to believe him? And his wife went along with it? Who does these things? These people sound pathological. All of them. Well, not Elizabeth.

Elizabeth Edwards' sister, Nancy Anania, said "people who have read his book know he was willing to lie for years before the book was written.  It would naturally follow he is willing to lie after the book was written. This was inevitable. The very first person who heard the Youngs' story contested by actual facts concluded that they are lying." Elizabeth Edwards declined to comment.

I'm actually not sure ANYONE ia telling the truth in this story. I also have this belief that 5 years from now, when all the dust settles, John Edwards and Rielle Hunter are going to get married. Anyone else think so?

Well, if by "after the dust settles," you mean after Elizabeth Edwards dies of cancer, then yeah, he'll probably marry his mistress/whore. Can you imagine him throwing away the opportunity to play the grieving widower? I can't.

These people all live within about 10 miles of me. And I cannot begin to tell you how much that creeps me out.


Didn't Elizabeth file for divorce recently? Either way, I don't think he could get away with playing the grieving widower. Unless he thinks we're THAT stupid.


Vomit. Who would want to watch that?!
