John Edwards’ Aide Pitches Publishers

johnedwards1.jpgJohn Edwards‘ close adviser Andrew Young hopes to publish a book exploring his strange role in the 2008 scandal that ruined the politician’s hopes for a Presidential bid.

According to the Daily Beast, David McCormick at McCormick Williams is making the rounds with Young’s proposal. One unnamed editor speculated that the deal could earn up to $1 million for the political aide.

Here’s a description of the juicy proposal: “the book would chronicle the tale of his long friendship with the Edwards family, his attempt to help Edwards by taking a pregnant Rielle Hunter into his home to live with him and his wife, Cheri, and their three children, and the fallout when the press (and Elizabeth Edwards) caught wind of the plan.”
