The John Edwards sex tape and its duplications have been turned over to court, presumably in safer hands than, say, those of Andrew Young — the money/fame-hungry embittered former aid or truth-speaker to power, your call — or so you would think!
Not so, as The Daily Beast can now describe who was doing what to whom where, when and how based on accounts from multiple people who have viewed it. According to one viewer with a "medical background," the size and shape of Rielle Hunter's nipples and belly "place the tape's filming somewhere around September or October of 2007, smack in the middle of Edwards campaign for the presidency."

On the video, both participants are naked. Hunter is propped up against the hotel bed headboard, with John Edwards belly-down on the bed between her legs. As Hunter, the campaign's official videographer, holds the camera, a smiling Edwards performs oral sex. Because of the camera angle, Hunter's face is not visible, but her distinctive jewelry is. Not only does candidate Edwards know he's being filmed, one source says, he's also clowning around and "graphically performing for the camera."

It's not just the raw nature of the video, but its context—a married presidential candidate with a cancer-stricken wife, roughly a dozen weeks before his make-or-break moment, the Iowa caucuses—that makes it so damning.

Huh. Based upon all the reports of Mr. Edwards' big wee-wee, we thought for sure this would be more than an oral sex tape. Perhaps the tales of his manhood were inspired from the other artifacts currently under lock and key: eight photographs and a Rielle Hunter document entitled "The Slut Club." How interesting.
