OH GOOD. Noted humanitarian and best guy ever John Edwards is not only seeking to make another human maybe with perfect soulmate Rielle Edwards. Nope. His name has also come up in conjunction with some sex-trafficking investigation in Manhattan, which has uncovered that he was purchasing sexxx with money during the presidential bid that was only cut short because his wife Elizabeth was about to die of horrible cancer. Ev’rybody got a warm happy feeling now? So glad.
Your Editrix will never tire of being reminded that she pooh-poohed Bammerz and Hillary as terrible moderates in the run-up to 2008, and actively tried to convince all the Youngs that Edwards was the true progressive in the race. Nope. Never tire of that at all. THANKS, JOHN EDWARDS! More importantly, though, how many Whore Diamonds do you think Edwards’ sexworker was worth?
According to “On The Inside” sources, Edwards allegedly hooked up with one of Gristina’s high-end hookers in 2007 when the dashing pol from North Carolina brought his then high-flying presidential campaign to the Big Apple.
The one-night fling allegedly took place at an Upper East Side hotel suite and was arranged by an aide with help from a New Yorker familiar with Gristina’s prostitution ring, sources said.
Records show the Edwards campaign spent thousands of dollars for near-monthly stays at the Loews Hotels Regency at 540 Park Ave. on the Upper East Side in 2007, along with stays at several other Manhattan hotels including a Comfort Inn on West 39th Street.
The Loews Hotels Regency is also where he reportedly met videographer Rielle Hunter, who bore Edwards a love child while his wife, Elizabeth, battled cancer.
