When John Edwards learned that Rielle Hunter was pregnant with his child, he reacted with disbelief – and a verbal swipe at his mistress, a witness testified Tuesday.
“She’s a ‘crazy slut,’ ” former aide Andrew Young says Edwards told him.
Testifying Tuesday in the second day of Edwards’s criminal trial in Greensboro, N.C., Young recalled delivering the news to Edwards in the summer of 2007 after Hunter called Young at home.
Describing his phone conversation with Edwards, Young testified, “He was very concerned. He was angry.”
