UPDATED Mistress' Family Challenges Edwards to Take that Paternity Test
The family of John Edwards' former mistress, Rielle Hunter, is challenging the former senator to take a DNA paternity test after his claim that he did not father Hunter's 6-months-old child.UPDATE:Glenn Reynolds adds:
In the first reaction from Hunter's family, her younger sister Melissa told ABC News that Edwards should immediately follow through on his pledge to take a paternity test.
"I would challenge him to do so," the sister said.
MORE ON JOHN EDWARDS from LawHawk: "Parts of Edwards' story don't fit - namely why would he be slinking around to avoid being seen with Rielle at the Beverly Hilton this past month. If Elizabeth already knew about the affair in 2006, then why hide it? Why stretch things out and not simply admit the affair to the Enquirer then and there?"One hell of a good point.
