The man who once represented North Carolina in the US Senate and ran for president of the United States could admit he is the father of a child of a former mistress and campaign worker.
Last August, Edwards admitted to having an affair with Rielle Hunter, a woman who served as a videographer on his 2008 presidential campaign. Edwards has denied fathering Hunter's now 18-month old daughter. Sources say Edwards' public admission that he is the father could come as early as today, according to WRAL. A federal grand jury is investigating whether campaign funds were used illegally to pay Hunter to stay quiet about the affair.
Hunter recently spent nine hours at a federal courthouse in Raleigh where the grand jury was meeting, she had her daughter with her.
