Not Enough to be 99.5% Truthful, Either

John Edwards is being challenged to back up his claim that he did not father Rielle Hunter's baby:

The family of John Edwards' former mistress, Rielle Hunter, is challenging the former senator to take a DNA paternity test after his claim that he did not father Hunter's 6-months-old child.

In the first reaction from Hunter's family, her younger sister Melissa told ABC News that Edwards should immediately follow through on his pledge to take a paternity test.

"I would challenge him to do so," the sister said.

"Somebody must stand up and defend my sister," she said. "I wish that those involved would refrain from bad-mouthing my sister."

I see a bidding war between Montel and Maury for the right to televise this one. If it does turn out that Edwards is the father, he'll become more politically radioactive than Gary Hart immediately after "Monkey Business," and if there had been a cabinet position waiting for him in an Obama White House, there won't be any longer.
