John Edwards Called Baby Mama Rielle Hunter A "Crazy Slut"

John Edwards trial
The former senator is getting thrown under the bus by his former aide Andrew Young's new testimony.

We full well know now that John Edwards played with two women's hearts: his late wife and his mistress's during his controversial 2008 Presidential race. He's certainly paying for it now as day three of court has begun at his criminal trial in Greensboro, N.C., in which he's pleaded innocent to the accusation of using campaign contributions to cover up his affair with Rielle Hunter.

According to People, Edwards' former aide Andrew Young testified on Tuesday that in the summer of 2007, he called Edwards to tell him that Hunter was pregnant with his baby. Young testified that Edwards was "very concerned. He was angry," and told Young that Hunter was "a crazy slut." John Edwards Moves Ex-Lover, Child Closer To Home

Of course, Edwards was in denial that Hunter's child was his. Young testified that Edwards said, "There's a one-in-three chance (the child) was his."

Young's testimony is important because he's the key witness who helped keep Edwards' affair a secret and would set up phone calls between the lovers. He was also brave in that he tried taking the fall for Edwards' cheating, but last time we checked, being a liar is a mistake, too. Is John Edwards A Sex Addict?

Rielle Hunter will most likely testify soon as well. In the meantime, Edwards' lawyer is holding on to the fact that his client "committed many sins" but did not break federal laws. We'll see about that!
