John-Edwards-NYC

For some time now, rumors have swirled that John Edwards made a sex tape with Rielle Hunter (Seriously, and this guy was almost our vice-president?!?!), the 80s coke whore he knocked up. Now Gawker has apparently confirmed its existence, and according to those who’ve seen it, the folksy charlatan from North Carolina is, ugh, gifted.

Reports Gawker:

Sources have told us that, in the throes of their affair, John Edwards and Rielle Hunter made a sex tape that contains “several sex acts.” And that his aide, Andrew Young found it on an unmarked DVD.

The tape, say both our sources, is explicit and reveals that Edwards “is physically very striking, in a certain area. Everyone who sees it says ‘whoa’. She’s behind the camera at first.”

Really, John Edwards? REALLY? I mean, isn’t it bad enough that America has to be inundated by the sex tapes of our desperate-for-fame-at-any-cost D-list celebs, but now our sleazeball politicos are also making them? And really, how fucking stupid and arrogant must this man be to make a sex tape with someone like Rielle Hunter WHILE HE WAS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT? Good lord.
