The NYT Follows the Edwards Love-Child Money

15edwards190b.jpgThe NYT, who until this week didn’t have anyone on the John Edwards love child story, has jumped into the fray with a bang. An article in today’s paper follows the Edwards love-child money right back to a wealthy Texan lawyer who may or may not have set both Rielle Hunter and Andrew Young up with their own representation but has only just remembered doing so, maybe.

The lawyers are linked through Fred Baron, a wealthy Dallas lawyer and former finance chairman for the Edwards campaign who was a key player in the campaign’s response to the scandal…After initially saying that he did not know how the lawyers were chosen to represent Ms. Hunter and Mr. Young, Mr. Baron acknowledged that he might have played a role.
It’s worth noting that one half of the byline on this investigative piece is Serge Kovaleski, the same reporter who uncovered the identity of Ashley Dupre, and if we recall correctly, he also broke the Woody Allen, Soon-Yi debacle back in 1992.
