John Edwards Scandal

An escort told investigators that John Edwards paid her for sex in 2007, while he was married to Elizabeth Edwards, but the former Senator “denies that he was involved with any prostitute or service.”

Former Senator John Edwards has been accused of hiring a call girl, employed by Madam Anna Gristina, while he was married and running for President. The escort told investigators that John paid her for sex during a 2007 visit to New York City to raise money for his failed White House bid, according to DNAinfo.

The mother-of-four-madam has been accused of running a multimillion dollar New York City prostitution ring with a little black book filled with powerful and wealthy clients. John’s late-night rendezvous allegedly took place at a hotel suite located in Manhattan’s upscale upper east side neighborhood.

“Mr. Edwards categorically denies that he was involved with any prostitute or service,” said Allison Van Laningham, one of John’s lawyers. “These allegations are false, defamatory, and he puts those who would publish or repeat them on notice that they acting with actual malice by reporting or repeating them. He has demanded a complete retraction from the only source being quoted.”

However, this is not the first time the disgraced senator has been connected to a sex scandal. John was accused of having an extra-marital affair with former campaign worker Rielle Hunter in 2007, while his wife, Elizabeth, battled cancer. Although he initially denied the allegations, John later confessed to fathering Rielle’s child.
