Andrew Young: Edwards 'Asked Me To Steal Baby's Diaper' For Secret DNA Test

On the heels of John Edwards' admission of fathering an out of wedlock child with his former campaign videographer Rielle Hunter, ABC News has released an excerpt of an interview with former Edwards aide Andrew Young, whom Edwards convinced to falsely claim paternity of the child in an effort to keep his own infidelity a secret.

One of the sordid details Young relates is that Edwards asked him to steal one of the child's diapers so he could conduct his own paternity test:

"Get a doctor to fake the DNA results," Young said Edwards told him. "And he asked me ... to steal a diaper from the baby so he could secretly do a DNA test to find out if this [was] indeed his child."

Young's revelations about the Edwards and the affair come in his soon to be released book "The Politician."
