Judge Says Ex-Edwards Aide In Contempt, Wants Tape

A judge has declared that a former aide to John Edwards is in contempt, demanding that he turn over a "personal" videotape being sought by Edwards' former mistress.

Superior Court Judge Abraham Penn Jones reprimanded Andrew Young in court Friday, but he declined to put Young in custody. Jones said the contempt ruling will be lifted if he turns over some pictures and a videotape "of a personal nature" by Wednesday.

Edwards' former mistress, Rielle Hunter, had won a temporary restraining order against Young that sought the return of what she called a private video she made in 2006. Young has said he has a copy of a video showing Edwards in a sexual encounter with a woman he believed to be Hunter.

    I think maybe the judge is on Edwards side becasue just maybe he's doing a little on the side to. The public has the right to know what is on the tape, Edwards is a public figure. REMEMBER.

    I agree....these people are simply greedy and self serving. When we as the public stsrt ignoring them, they will have to find another way to make a living. My understanding is that the perks of the office, if you stay in even a short time, are cemented in place for life. If I knew I had health insurance for life, I would have money to run, play, and "fool around" too. They are no better than dogs...even that is an insult to dogs!

    I will be glad when the media stops giving this man the attention he is seeking. He is has no more morals than John Edwards. Both are greedy, self-serving individuals. As for his book, I have no desire to read his side of the story. Enough lives have been destroyed by this. It is time for Mr. Young to move on and for the media to move on from this sick story!
