Yesterday Robert Gordon, the attorney for John Edwards' videographic vixen Rielle Hunter, issued a response to media howls for a paternity test. Edwards, you'll recall, has admitted to having an affair with Hunter, but claims the child was actually fathered by one of his aides. Both Hunter and the aide, Andrew Young, have allegedly come into a lot of cash from a generous Edwards campaign supporter. And Edwards himself was so overjoyed that his mistress had a baby (not his) that he flew clear across the country to pay a middle-of-the-night visit to her Beverly Hills hotel room so he could cuddle Hunter's (not his) baby.
Anyways, back to the attorney's statement:
Rielle is a private individual. She is not running for public office. She wishes to maintain her privacy and her daughter's privacy. Rielle is therefore making no statement now or in the future. Furthermore, Rielle will not participate in DNA testing or any other invasion of her or her daughter's privacy now or in the future.
Strong, concise stuff, that. Alas, there's just one line missing: The paternity test also is not necessary because the identity of the kid's father is known.
