Friend Tells CBS John Edwards is the Father of Rielle Hunter’s Baby

EdwardsCBS_8.12.jpgThis morning on CBS’ The Early Show, Maggie Rodriguez spoke with Pigeon O’Brien, a friend of Rielle Hunter. O’Brien told Rodriguez that Edwards lied to ABC’s Bob Woodruff when he explained the timeline of the affair.

RODRIGUEZ: She told you it started in February or March of 2006.

O’BRIEN: Yes.

RODRIGUEZ: He says it started five months later when his campaign hired her.

O’BRIEN: Yeah, that’s not true. That’s not true. It started in the
winter of ’06. They became involved at that point, not later in the summer when she was hired to work for the political action committee.

RODRIGUEZ: It started in the winter of ’06?

O’BRIEN: Correct.

RODRIGUEZ: Because that’s when he was announcing his candidacy. And as we see in these picture she’s still working for him at the time, even though he says this is when the affair was winding down.

O’BRIEN: It started at the other end of ’06, in February, March of ’06.

O’Brien also thinks Edwards is the father of Hunter’s child. “I don’t see any other explanation,” O’Brien told Rodriguez. “She would not have a child with someone that she didn’t love, and she loves him.”
