    John Edwards repeatedly lied during his Presidential campaign about an extramarital affair with a novice filmmaker, the former Senator admitted today.

    In an interview for broadcast tonight on Nightline, Edwards told ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff he did have an affair with 44-year old Rielle Hunter, but said that he did not love her.

    Edwards also denied he was the father of Hunter's baby girl, Frances Quinn, although the one-time Democratic Presidential candidate said he has not taken a paternity test.

    Edwards said he knew he was not the father based on timing of the baby's birth on February 27, 2008. He said his affair ended too soon for him to have been the father.

    A former campaign aide, Andrew Young, has said he was the father of the child.

    According to friends of Hunter, Edwards met her at a New York city bar in 2006. His political action committee later paid her $114,000 to produce campaign website documentaries despite her lack of experience.

    Edwards said the affair began during the campaign after she was hired. Hunter traveled with Edwards around the country and to Africa.

    Edwards said his wife, Elizabeth, and others in his family became aware of the affair in 2006.

    Edwards made a point of telling Woodruff that his wife's cancer was in remission when he began the affair with Hunter. Elizabeth Edwards has since been diagnosed with an incurable form of the disease.

    When the National Enquirer first reported the alleged Edwards-Hunter affair last October 11, Edwards, his campaign staff and Hunter vociferously denounced the report.

    "The story is false, it's completely untrue, it's ridiculous," Edwards told reporters then.

    He repeated his denials just two weeks ago.

    Edwards today admitted the National Enquirer was correct when it reported he had visited Hunter at the Beverly Hills Hilton last month.

    The former Senator said his wife had not known about the meeting.

    Ohh well, this shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. He's just a man. The sad part is his wife has cancer and probably wasn't able to have sex with him in the style to which he had become accustomed. His wife is no raving beauty, but the timing of his affair is tacky as hell.

    He was my number 1 choice for vice president. Maandiko ya vitabu vitakatifu yanazidi kutimia. Ule mti wa katikati Adamu alioambiwa asiuguse sasa unawaponza wengi.

    According to the "Enquirer" Editor, watu wa Enquirer walimstukia majuzi alipoingia kwenye hoteli moja huko Beverly Hills California ambako huyu mwanamke alikuwemo na akapotea kwa masaa 5. Alipoibuka, waandishi wakambana na kumwuliza kama yeye ndie baba wa mtoto wa Rielle Hunter. Edwards hakuwajibu na akaishia kukimbilia choo kilichokuwepo kwenye hiyo floor. Waandishi wa Enquirer wakamfata na kumsubiri nje ya mlango wa choo. Jamaa aliendelea kukaa humo for more than 35 minutes mpaka watu wa Security walipokuja kuwaondoa waandishi, ndipo na yeye John Edwards naye akatoka chooni.

    Ni soo na aibu kwa mtu wa caliber ya John Edwards....

    Lakini huu uliandikwa kwenye magazeti ya "Udaku". Halafu wamarekani wanashangaza sana (labda wao wenyewe hawajishangazi) hivi kwanini haya mambo ya mtu na ndoa yake wao wanafuatilia sana hadi kumfanya mtu hata asiweze kuendelea na nafasi yake ya kisiasa (I'm thinking of our Mayor here in the D)?

    Hivi kama wanasiasa wetu tungeamua kuwafuatilia mambo yao ya chumbani hivi kweli kuna mtu angesimama au wale ambao tunawadhania wamesimama ndio watakaoanguka?

    Je, tuanze kufuatilia ili angalau tuanze kupata wanasiasa waaminifu? Tuanzie wapi, kwa nani na kwanini" au mambo haya ni too personal?
