One time Democratic US Presidential candidate John Edwards admitted to ABC News on Friday that he did indeed have an affair with one Rielle Hunter (aka Lisa Druck) though he denies being the father of her new born child. A paternity test has yet to be administered to the lying politician.

In an interview for broadcast tonight on Nightline, Edwards told ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff he did have an affair with 42-year old Rielle Hunter, but said that he did not love her.

Throughout his presidential campaign, Edwards denied having an extra marital affair. His wife is presently suffering from cancer.

Edwards said he knew he was not the father based on timing of the baby's birth on February 27, 2008. He said his affair ended too soon for him to have been the father.

A former campaign aide, Andrew Young, has said he was the father of the child.

When the National Enquirer first reported the alleged Edwards-Hunter affair last October 11, Edwards, his campaign staff and Hunter vociferously denounced the report.

"The story is false, it's completely untrue, it's ridiculous," Edwards told reporters then.

Edwards admitted the National Enquirer was correct in its reporting of his affair. That tabloid also linked Edwards to the love child however.

John Edwards is almost certain to be eliminated from the Vice Presidential selection. He had been listed with 10 to 1 odds of becoming Barack Obama's running mate at Bookmaker.com prior to Friday's disclosure
