Fallout From The Edwards Affair
By Derek Kravitz
Fallout from former Sen. John Edwards's (D-N.C.) admission that he had an affair with a campaign videographer while his wife, Elizabeth Edwards, was in remission from cancer continues to play out in the press.
A sampling of the follow-up stories about the affair and Edwards's future:
-- Edwards told ABC News' Bob Woodruff last week that he and Rielle Hunter began their affair only after Hunter was hired by the campaign to produce a series of videos for the Internet, when she began traveling with him.
"She was hired to come in and produce films and that's the reason she was hired," Edwards said.
But that version of events is now being challenged by a one-time close friend of Hunter's, Pidgeon O'Brien.
"The affair began long, long, long before she was hired to work for the campaign almost half a year before she was hired to work on those videos," O'Brien said in an exclusive interview with ABC News.
O'Brien says Hunter told her that in late February or early March 2006 she met an "amazing" man from North Carolina named John at a New York City hotel bar. She referred to her new man as 'Love Lips,' whom she said was married with small children and a wife who had been ill.
