The Jewish link to the Edwards scandal


If there’s a political sex scandal, it seems there’s always some kind of Jewish involvement. We had Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton’s relationship, and a few years later there was Chandra Levy and Gary Condit. And it’s not just Jewish women– on the male side, Eliot Spitzer was visiting prostitutes just last year.

So it can’t be too suprising that the man who paid for John Edwards’ ex-mistress, Rielle Hunter, to relocate in order to avoid tabloid attention is Jewish: top Edwards fundraiser and Dallas lawyer Fred Baron.

No word yet on the religious background of former New York party girl Hunter, whose original name is Lisa Druck and is originally from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
