Former Edwards aide Andrew Young says the ex-senator and his former mistress, Rielle Hunter, once made a sex tape, according to someone who has seen Young's book proposal.
St. Martin's Press just inked a deal with Young, who also says in his proposal that, contrary to his public statement last year, he is not the father of Hunter's infant daughter — Edwards is. Edwards has denied that.
Young says that his belief in Edwards ran so deep that he agreed to take the fall for the candidate, inviting the pregnant Hunter to live with him, his wife, Cheri, and their three children. Later, after Hunter delivered the baby, Young and his family moved to a different home in California.
While he was unpacking, Young discovered a videocassette, according to the book pitch. Hunter had been hired by the Edwards campaign to videotape the candidate's movements, but this one is said to have shown him taking positions that weren't on his official platform.
The purported sex tape confirmed to Hunter that Edwards was even more reckless than he thought.

Former John Edwards aide Andrew Young is trying to gin up interest in a tell-all book about the lurid corners of his ex-boss' life, so he has a lot of rea$on$ to exaggerate.
But if this is true, Edwards isn't just too dumb to be president. He's too stupid to breathe.
I have to say, though, that if such a tape did exist, there is no way that we wouldn't have seen it by now.
