Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Political Scandal

with one comment

All over the news for the past weeks is the story about John Edwards and his illegimate child. At first he tried to pay his assistant to say the child was his even though he had already admitted to having the affair. Now he is owning up to being the father of the child because he says he wants his daughter to love him. The girl is three years old and he has not participated in any part of her life until now. When this little girl gets older and hears all the stories about what her father did and how he only owned up to it because his assistant threatened to publish a book telling the truth, she is going to hate him even more than if he just disclaimed her until she was an adult.

  1. I completely agree. This child is going to be able to find out any information about the whole situation as soon as she has that desire.

    Personally, I don’t think the whole thing needed to be or should have been broadcasted for the whole world to to know that he had an affair and an illegitimate child.
    Sure, he’s a political figure but I don’t really care about his personal life…It’s just that, his personal life.
