What I still find remarkable is that it was the National Enquirer that broke this story making clear the obvious double standards given the reluctance with which they ultimately covered it and only after Edwards had been out of the race.
Furious John Edwards has allegedly vented his anger at mistress Rielle Hunter over the steamy sex video they made during his White House run.
In an amazing outburst, the shamed politician reportedly exploded after a judge ruled portions of his testimony under oath would be made public.
An insider said: 'John took his anger and frustrations out on Rielle.
'He screamed at Rielle, calling her an idiot for not destroying the tape, and yelling that she made a fool of him for talking him into making it,' a source told the National Enquirer.
'Rielle was in tears, and tried to apologize, but John didn't care.
'John was shocked with the judge's decision.
'His worst nightmare is that the tape will get on the internet, and destroy what little reputation he has left.'
