John Edwards, former candidate for President in both the 2004 and 2008 election campaigns, has, according to FOX News, been engaging in an affair with a woman named Rielle Hunter, and he was seen running and hiding from reporters in the Beverly Hills Hilton recently. Hunter was supposedly a guest in the hotel that night. FOX News quoted a hotel security guard, who said that he found the former presidential candidate trapped in a men’s room, with reporters outside shouting questions at Edwards about his relationship with Rielle Hunter. Rumors of an Edwards affair with Hunter have surfaced before, but this, if confirmed, would be more than a rumor. Video is said to exist of Hunter entering a hotel room, and then of Edwards leaving the same room later. John Edwards is married, and his wife, Elizabeth is battling an incurable form of cancer. Edwards suspended his presidential campaign in January, after defeats in the early primaries and caucuses. He has endorsed Barack Obama, and has been mentioned as a possible vice-presidential candidate, a role he played in the 2004 election. Any talk of Edwards running on a national ticket as the veep again, is now sure to end whether this hotel tyst story turns out to be true or not.Guard Confirms Late-Night Hotel Encounter Between Ex-Sen.
