Obviously, his advice wasn't very good! LOLz!
In the latest development from John Edwards' campaign corruption trial, former speechwriter Wendy Button told the jury that her boss reached out to his Hollywood friends when shiz hit the fan with Rielle Hunter.
Before delivering an official statement in January of 2010 about the child he had out of wedlock, the Senator had copies sent to Sean Penn, Madeleine Stowe, and director Paul Haggis. Button said DOZENS of revisions were made to the statement before he delivered an apology to the public.
No reason was given as to WHY Penn or Haggis were consulted, but either way, this detail only makes Edwards look like MORE of a liar. As if cheating on his dying wife wasn't bad enough, right?
