Silky: John Edwards' Name Comes Up in Major Prostitution Investigation

Is this more or less surprising than learning that al Qaeda thug Adam Gadahn hearts Keith Olbermann? I'm going with "about the same." Neither is very surprising. Both are kind of hilarious.

The prostitute claiming to have slept with Edwards provided a detailed, first-hand account of their encounter to investigators in the Manhattan District Attorney's office in 2008 after they began probing Gristina’s operation, sources said.

“Most of the women don’t have any idea about the identities of the men they sleep with,” a source explained. “How would they know a money man from Wall Street or the face of a lawyer or banker who shows up?

“But the face of the national politician?” the source rhetorically asked. “She knew.”

The former Democratic senator and 2004 vice presidential nominee's name was the first to pop up on the "millionaire madame's" list. He was cheating on his cancer-stricken wife with his videographer, at the time of the alleged encounter. He would later enlist his best friend Andrew Young and Democrat financiers including the late Fred Baron to cover up the relationship with Rielle Hunter. If we learn anything meaningful from this, it's that John Edwards may not even be capable of remaining faithful to himself. If there were two Americas as candidate Edwards was fond of saying, he would cheat on both with Russia. Or China. Or both.

Thankfully, there is no known tape of the activity in question. But below is the alleged tape of Edwards prepping for the tryst.

Update: Edwards denies. For whatever that's worth.
