Grand Jury Investigates John Edwards

Okay, so it’s the National Enquirer, but they’re the ones who broke the John Edwards-Rielle Hunter story in the first place, so maybe it’s worth paying attention to: The tabloid is reporting that Andrew Young, the aide to Edwards who pretended that Hunter’s child was his own, met with a federal grand jury investigating the payment of hush money to Hunter on Thursday. Young appeared at a federal building in Raleigh, North Carolina at 8:30 am. According to the Enquirer, “Insiders believe he is ‘pulling a John Dean’ - testifying against his former boss in exchange for immunity so he won't be liable for perjury when his tell-all about the John Edwards Conspiracy is published.”
