"Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards has finally come forward to admit that he fathered a child with a videographer he hired before his second White House bid. "It was wrong for me to ever deny she was my daughter," he said Thursday.
"I will do everything in my power to provide her (Frances) with the love and support she deserves. I have been able to spend time with her during the past year and trust that future efforts to show her the love and affection she deserves can be done privately and in peace."
Edwards also said, "It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me."
"I have been providing financial support for Quinn and have reached an agreement with her mother to continue providing support in the future," the statement said. "To all those I have disappointed and hurt, these words will never be enough, but I am truly sorry."
Harrison Hickman, Edwards' longtime political adviser, called the situation "a lot more complicated than people think." (source)
I wonder...how many men could/would deny a child for the dream of the Oval Office? Normally I would feel bad for the children, but in this case my sympathy goes to his wife. I'm sure this has all been very therapeutic for someone with terminal cancer...Ugh, could he be a bigger douche? I can't believe my mom believed him...
