Ex-Edwards Pal Says FBI Has Sex Tape

A former aide to John Edwards says in court documents that a copy of a sex tape featuring his former boss has been sent to the FBI.

Andrew Young said Friday he has the original copy of the tape showing Edwards in a sexual encounter in a safe deposit box in Atlanta. He said a copy of the tape was sent to his Washington attorney, who turned it over to federal investigators.

Young has said the tape shows Edwards and a woman he believes to be the two-time presidential candidate's mistress, Rielle Hunter. Federal investigators have been looking into the money that exchanged hands during Edwards' second White House campaign. He has denied breaking campaign finance laws.

A judge has ordered Young to turn over all copies of the tape.

    You know I could have lived the rest of my life and not have known this and would have been completely happy as it was. (and I am 29)

    Wouldnt surprise me if the Democrats are just using him to try and get the focus off of the rest of them and how bad they are screwing up.

    Well Data Man, wellcome to our democratic party. I guess his aid is trying to get a cabinet position with Obama. He sure is qualified....

    Uncle Johnny got tied up with a real smart woman. She knew that tape would come in handy later if things didn't turn out like she wanted. And she got a free meal ticket until the kid gets out of school too. "Giving" the tape to a third party (she probably hated him) for safe keeping could later lead to comeuppance for an enemy. Wow, can't trust anybody anymore.

    I watched the aide to Edwards on an interview the other night.Honestly , I think the man is scorned. It was almost as if he had feelings for him. Something just doesn't sit right there.I wonder if there is some "don't ask don't tell" story there.

    It's hard to have sympathy for an ambulance chaser. He has no business anywhere near the white house.

    Probably his besty act. After all . . . unfortunately that's all he is . . . a big act.

    The F.B.I. needs a copy.Everyone should see the copy. Enough about John Edwards. Thank God he wasn't elected President. North Carolina is ashamed of him.
