Updates to the John Edwards story

The Hill reports on Andrew Young’s 20/20 apperance here.

Also mentioned in the ABC broadcast were the hundreds of thousands of dollars in checks allegedly written by longtime Edwards backer Bunny Mellon, the Upperville, Va.-based widow of philanthropist Paul Mellon. Young said the checks were sometimes delivered inside boxes of chocolates.

Young attests that it was Mellon’s largesse, as well as that of another longtime Edwards funder, the late Fred Baron, that paid for Young, his wife, and Hunter to stay in five-star hotels and rent villas all over the country, all in order to avoid detection by the media during Edwards’s presidential campaign.
