‘The Politician’ author settles sex tape lawsuit

The aide, Andrew Young, wrote a 2010 book, “The Politician”, about Edwards’ affair with Hunter and efforts to keep it from the public eye.

Hunter (picture) sued Young and his wife, Cheri, seeking to force the return of items belonging to her.

Hunter lived with the Youngs while she was pregnant with Edwards’ baby, and Young initially claimed he was the child’s father at Edwards’ request.

Edwards later admitted the child, born in February 2008, was his.

The former North Carolina senator is now awaiting trial on federal charges accusing him of secretly accepting more than US$900,000 (RM2.7 million) from two wealthy supporters to help cover up his extramarital affair and baby as he sought the nomination in 2008. He has pleaded not guilty.

The Youngs admitted no liability as part of the Hunter settlement, and the North Carolina judge presiding over the case made no finding regarding liability.

The couple released a statement saying they were “extremely pleased” to have the lawsuit resolved.

Hunter’s property, which has been held by the court clerk, is to be returned to her within 30 days. The alleged sex tape also will be destroyed within that time, court records show.

“What she had sought from the outset in this matter is to get back materials that belong to her and to provide protections for her privacy,” said Hunter’s attorney, Alan Duncan. “She’s been able to accomplish that objective.”
