129. And yet you still didn't get it.
1. This is not a tabloid accusation, let alone an "every tabloid accusation" kind of revelation. This isn't like bat-boy or Dick Cheney is a robot. This isn't John Edwards had a six-course endangered lobster dinner after visiting a homeless shelter or he gets really expensive haircuts. This is a highly-paid professional who was closer to John Edwards than Edward's own wife who has a sex tape of JE (clearly visible) with a visibly pregnant woman wearing jewelry like RH at the time that RH was visibly pregnant. He's not making this revalation in the back pages of Star magazine, he's speaking to and being picked up by every major news venue in the country.

2. Hunter could only profit by suing the shit out of Young if there was no tape. There's no downside for her in suing over a tape if it didn't exist, and she definitely seems to be looking for the money.

3. If Young's allegations were false, the financial gains, damage control and potential sympathy points Edwards could gain would far outweigh any negatives entailed by slapping Young with a suit. It would be a simple and easy matter - IF . . IF - the allegations were false.

4. Neither JE nor Hunter has denied the existence of the tape.

Occam's razor fairly demands that the highest probability is that there is indeed a tape.
