(Newser) – Elizabeth Edwards is ready to divorce John and air all his dirty laundry in court, sources tell the National Enquirer—a tabloid that's been surprisingly accurate when it comes to the Edwards scandal. Elizabeth’s breaking point by way of former aide Andrew Young’s upcoming tell-all: “What really pushed her over the edge is Young's allegation that John had other affairs with women on the campaign trail,” the source says.

“Elizabeth basically told John that if she found out that was true, she'd have to divorce him because then he'd be a 'serial cheater.'" She "knows every dirty little secret in her husband's political past. She's been his confidant for years, and she's always kept quiet. But now she's prepared to reveal all his secrets in open court,” the source continues. Elizabeth made it clear to John that she will take him for everything he's got. She will divorce him and claim their $53 million fortune.”

jimw428, you're a jackass. Nobody was talking about Obama. This is about EDWARDS, but you nut jobs always have to find something to say about Obama. Get over yourself, he was elected by the people, including Repubs.

Good for her. She was a loyal and supporting wife, and as most wives you stick with your husband through the good and the bad, but when the asshole continues to prove that he's a worthless piece of shit, then he gets what he deserves. She stuck by him through all this mess and he did nothing but continue to lie and when she needed him the most, during her fight with cancer..he was out screwing around. What a prick!
