John Edwards baby cover-up

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

WASHINGTON (WFLX) - A new twist in the paternity scandal surrounding former presidential candidate John Edwards.

Andrew Young, the aide who once claimed he fathered the child of John Edwards' mistress, now saying Edwards is indeed the baby's father.

The New York Times reports Edwards asked his campaign finance chairman to hide the paternity of Rielle Hunter's child. The newspaper says Edwards said he would marry Hunter after his wife died. Edwards' wife, Elizabeth, has cancer.

Young claims Edward told Hunter the wedding would be a rooftop wedding and the Dave Matthews Band would be performing.

Meanwhile, Edwards continues to deny he fathered the child.
