Ex-aide testifies about call from Edwards' distraught mistress

Greensboro, North Carolina (CNN) - A former aide to John Edwards testified Tuesday that the then-presidential candidate made a disparaging comment about his mistress after she called to say she was pregnant.

"She was crying, she was distraught and she needed to speak with Mr. Edwards immediately," Andrew Young told jurors about his conversation with Rielle Hunter. "I said, 'Somebody better be pregnant or dying. She said, 'nobody's dying,'" Young recounted.

    Shouldn't this story be in the "Justice" department, instead of "Politics"?

    Obama will require us that we must pay Edwards' lawyer like his favorite aunt and uncle. Because we already saved both from immigrant with our taxes.
