Witness for the prosecution CHERI YOUNG continues testimony as video footage is shown jurors after RIELLE HUNTER commandeered their home during the cover-up.
“I videotaped the house to prove that the money was actually spent, to prove that there really was a Rielle Hunter and a house,” Young, 38, testified to jurors.
Cheri and her husband former loyalist Andrew Young who claimed paternity of Edwards’ love child received nearly $1 million in hush money from two Presidential campaign donors, Listerine heiress Rachel “Bunny” Mellon and late Dallas money man Fred Baron to maintain the conspiracy of silence during John Edwards’ presidential campaign and the possibility of accepting a VP or Attorney General slot after dropping out of the race.
“Again, Mr. Edwards had gone on TV and lied,” Cheri said, referring to Edwards’ ABC Nightline interview with Bob Woodruff two days after The ENQUIRER released pictures of the US senator and his love child on August 6, 2008.
As the Young’s video camera swept through their home it alighted on a Post-It note Rielle had inscribed with the birth dates of actors John Travola, Matt Dillon and Jeff Daniels.
They also documented the new-age temptress’ Buddha statues, her business card with the slogan “Being is Free” and list of baby names.
Young also testified that Edwards wept during a phone call in July 2008 after the NATIONAL ENQUIRER published spy photos of him playing with 6-month-old Frances Quinn.

“I . . . heard him crying on the phone,” she said.
During cross examination, Edwards’ attorney Alan Duncan demanded, “Why were you videotaping Ms. Hunter’s personal and private materials in a hat box?”
“This was proof” to protect both her and her husband Andrew in case Edwards set them up to take the fall for the cover-up.
“Those recordings were not kept for a book,” Young replied.
“It was because we accepted paternity for your client.’’
As The ENQUIRER reported previously the John Edwards-Rielle Hunter sex tape testimony has been allowed in the bombshell political trial of the century. Stay tuned…
