(Newser) – Andrew Young's new tell-all book about his ex-boss John Edwards piles on the creepy details of the disgraced former candidate's dalliance with Rielle Hunter. Some highlights from the New York Daily News's peek inside Young's The Politician:

  • While terminally ill Elizabeth was away, Edwards had sex with Hunter in his wife's bed, then promised to someday marry her on a Manhattan rooftop.

  • When Edwards found out Hunter was pregnant, he called her a "crazy slut" and demanded she abort the child; Hunter refused on grounds the child was "the reincarnated spirit of a Buddhist monk who would rescue the world."
  • The notorious sex tape shows Edwards with the pregnant Hunter.
  • It was at least partly because he knew voters loved Elizabeth that Edwards refused to consider divorcing his wife.

So he calls her a "crazy slut" then ultimately has sex with her again while she's pregnant? What a guy.

Is this some sort of hot of the presses surprise? We all knew the guy as a massive douche bag.

OK, he's a pig, and an asshole. What else do you expect from an attorney. Move on.
