Andrew Young, a former longtime aide and trusted friend of Senator John Edwards, sat down for an exclusive interview with ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff regarding his upcoming memoir, The Politician, An Insider Account of Edwards’ Pursuit of the Presidency and the Scandal that Brought Him Down. In his interview with Woodruff, Young chronicles his time with Senator John Edwards, including his efforts to hide the secret that would eventually shock the American public, FRIDAY, JANUARY 29th on “20/20” at 10PM/ET on ABC.
Amidst swirling rumors that the Senator was having an affair with a videographer hired by the campaign named Rielle Hunter, Young gained widespread notoriety when he claimed to be the father of Hunter’s unborn child and then welcomed Hunter into the home he shared with wife Cheri and their three young children.
Senator John Edwards first admitted to an affair with Rielle Hunter during an August 8, 2008 “Nightline” interview with Woodruff. In the days and months following, Edwards consistently denied being the father of Hunter’s baby – that is until last week – when Edwards issued a public statement acknowledging that he is the father of Frances Quinn Hunter.
More of Bob Woodruff’s exclusive interview with Andrew Young will air later in the evening on “Nightline” and George Stephanopoulos will have Young’s first live interview on February 1st on “Good Morning America.”
ABC News’ “20/20” is co-anchored by Elizabeth Vargas and Chris Cuomo. David Sloan is the executive producer of “20/20.”
