Elizabeth Edwards, fully embarking in her life’s mission to rehabilitate the sorry excuse for a man she’s married to, insists that Reille Hunter’s name not be brought up:
Edwards to Interviewers: Don’t Say That Name
Drake said Edwards’s restriction isn’t motivated by “anger” toward Hunter, but by a desire not to see Hunter profit from the affair. Noting that other notorious figures — such as Ashley Dupré, the call girl who slept with then-New York Gov. Elliot Spitzer — have cashed in on their media attention, Drake said Edwards “doesn’t want to contribute to putting this woman in the spotlight. She feels that, to the extent the media shines attention on people like this, that we encourage this kind of behavior. She doesn’t want to reward bad behavior.”
Has Rielle Hunter been doing the Larry King-Oprah rounds?
By “this kind of behavior” I assume Elizabeth means committing adultery with a married man, or perhaps getting pregnant from an adulterous married man. Which begs the question, who’s now encouraging the cheating, lying SOB who coudln’t keep his zipper closed while his wife was undergoing chemotherapy AND he was running for the highest office in the land?
And by the way
Ben Smith notices that the WaPo mentions Hunter nine times in their article. Good for them.
