The saga of John Edwards?

So you probably know that some tabloids are accusing former Senator and presidential candidate John Edwards of having a secret mistress, a love child, etc. When I heard it, I was very dubious about the story's truth.

But now look what we see today, from FoxNews:

"A hotel security guard told he intervened this week between a man he identified as former Sen. John Edwards and tabloid reporters who chased down the former presidential hopeful after what they're calling a rendezvous with his mistress and love child. The Beverly Hilton Hotel guard said he encountered a shaken and ashen-faced Edwards — whom he did not immediately recognize — in a hotel men's room early Tuesday morning in a literal tug-of-war with reporters on the other side of the door. "What are they saying about me?" the guard said Edwards asked. "His face just went totally white," the guard said, when Edwards was told the reporters were shouting out questions about Edwards and Rielle Hunter, a woman the National Enquirer says is the mother of his child. The guard said he escorted Edwards, who was not a registered guest at the hotel, out of the building after 2 a.m."

Read the whole thing. Note Edwards' "denials"--they're far from complete, and frankly, far from convincing. There are a lot of specifics to this story now. Stay tuned.
