John Edwards Will Maybe Testify

The Daily Beast just sent out an email with an exclusive report that says John Edwards might be deposed in the suit by his mistress Rielle Hunter against his former aide, Andrew Young.

The only problem with the headline–“Edwards To Testify About Sex Tape”–is that the report says Ms. Hunter has skipped five dates for her own deposition (which Oprah surely appreciates), and there appears to be no reason Mr. Edwards couldn’t do the same thing.

The Daily Beast says it’s Ms. Hunter’s suit, so presumably she could drop it before either of them actually has to bare any more embarrassing details.

But there’s also a federal grand jury looking into whether the former presidential candidate paid for Ms. Hunter’s silence with campaign funds, and those federal subpoenas can be much harder to ignore. John Edwards Will Maybe Testify
