Edwards' Ex-Aide Rejects Big Offers For Sex Tape

A former aide to two-time presidential candidate John Edwards said he has been offered "gigantic amounts of money" to sell what he says is a sex tape showing Edwards with his former mistress.

Andrew Young told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Monday that he has rejected offers to sell the tape. He did not say who made the offers.

Young says in a new book about Edwards that he found the tape in a box left in a home he and his wife shared with Rielle (ree-EHL') Hunter. Edwards has admitted fathering a child with Hunter.

Young has said his book, "The Politician," was not motivated by a desire to cash in on his time with Edwards.

Hunter last week won a temporary restraining order in a North Carolina court demanding that Young return a 2006 video "of a very private and personal nature."

    Data Man, Ewards didn't make his money on farming. Is that what CNN told you to say? Edwards was an ambulance chaser. He went after the pharmaceuticals thus causing all flu vaccines to be made overseas. Why? Cause Edwards sued them when a few people had bad reactions to it. Pharma companies were not making money producing the vaciines and did it as a public service. There is some data for you. Farming...riiggghhhhtttt.

    DataMan, since you seem to think that you are entitled to what ever others make, don't you feel you should also get a part of the loot?

    I for one, like seeing John Edwards in the news. John Edwards personifies what it means to be a good democrat. He is.....just an average democrat. His moral fiber and the level class he displays is on par with just about every democrat that I have ever met and I live in a heavily dumocrat area. You dumocrats stop complaining, after all it is for you, just like looking in a mirror.

    Will the tape include a voice line from the late Jerry Clower saying look there Marcell and lordy-lordy knock him out John?

    Poor little girl! A home-wrecker for a mother and a womanizing low-life for a father. What a legacy. Hopefully, she will raise above her garbage parents.

    This "aide" is just as sleezy as Edwards for writing a book about this mess. I am so sick of hearing about this and the Tiger Woods thing I don't know what to do. I don't know why people are so fascinated with this old tired story.

    To this dog smokes, Edwards was a farmer! So what he got money from cigarrettes lawsuits. But he didnt get rich trying to sell is friend personal business. His mistress is dumb. He would have taken good care of her and their daughter. These women would stop if the government saved that money for the child until he or she was grown.
