Andrew Young, former aide to John Edwards, alleged on Tuesday that the former presidential candidate called Rielle Hunter a "crazy slut" when he learned she was potentially pregnant with his love child.
According to Young, Edwards said at the time that there was a 1-in-3 chance that the baby was his. Young made the remarks in testifying in the trial over whether Edwards violated campaign finance laws.
The AP reports:
Young has been the lone witness during the first two days of Edwards' criminal trial. The 58-year-old Edwards has pleaded not guilty to six counts related to campaign finance violations involving nearly $1 million in secret payments provided by two wealthy donors as he sought the White House in 2008.
Young said Rielle Hunter told Edwards she was pregnant in June 2007, weeks later than the aide originally claimed in a tell-all book published in 2010. Young said Edwards, told him to "take care of it," meaning the pregnancy.
Young was granted immunity in the case.
