The latest revelations to come out of Andrew Young’s tell-all have to do with PlayStations, Wal-Marts, and John Edwards’ curious way of talking to Rielle Hunter. Instead of saying “I love you, too” or “I miss you,” he would say only “me, too” or “that’s correct,” so that he could have "plausible deniability," Young writes in an excerpt published by the New York Times. Meanwhile, Gawker talks to an ex-staffer who offers up new gossip, saying Edwards enjoyed drinking alcohol while being driven around.
The staffer also discusses Edwards’ “nouveau riche” taste in wine and confirms that Young’s juicy tidbits are “consistent” with his experience. The rest of the Times’ excerpt goes into detail on the storm of negative publicity that ensued when a new assistant name-dropped at Wal-Mart in an attempt to get the Christmas gift of the year, a PlayStation, for Edwards’ son—and the weeks (yes, weeks) of “harassment” from Elizabeth Edwards that Young subsequently suffered over the debacle.
