The ex-mistress of two-time presidential candidate John Edwards wants a "very private and personal"' videotape back from a campaign aide who wrote a book about the politician, according to court documents.http://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation/story/1454008.html
Rielle Hunter was granted a temporary restraining order against former Edwards loyalist Andrew Young in a North Carolina court. It seeks the return of photos and videos, including one she says she made in 2006 while working for Edwards.
"In or about September 2006, using my video camera, I authored a personal video recording that depicted matters of a very private and personal nature," Hunter wrote in an affidavit filed Thursday. "In 2006, I was also having an intimate relationship with Edwards."'
"The decision was made that the video be destroyed"' in December 2006, Hunter wrote. She said she pulled out the tape from the cassette and stored it in a box with personal belongings.
In his book, Young describes viewing a sex tape that showed Edwards and a woman he assumed was Hunter. Young says some videotapes were inside a "box of trash" that Hunter left behind at a home he rented for her.
John Edwards made a sex tape with his mistress while attempting to use his wife's terminal cancer to garner sympathy votes in the presidential race.
He must be crazy.
