HADDONFIELD, N.J. (AP) - The lawyer for a videographer for
former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards says it's
"good for everyone" that Edwards has admitted he fathered a child
with the woman.
New Jersey-based lawyer Michael Critchley says Edwards'
confession Thursday that he was the father of Rielle (ree-EHL')
Hunter's nearly 2-year-old daughter amounted a public
acknowledgment of something that was known privately.
He said Hunter did not have an immediate comment.
Edwards' admission comes shortly before a book on the scandal is
due out from a former campaign aide who was expected to describe
how Edwards worked to hide his paternity.
