Edwards's Wife Confronted Donors

A former campaign spokeswoman for John Edwards gave a crucial testimony in court on Wednesday, claiming Elizabeth Edwards was incensed that donor money went towards supporting his pregnant mistress. Jennifer Palmieri said wealthy donors Fred Baron and Lisa Blue befriended Rielle Hunter and had paid for her to go on shopping sprees. According to Palmieri, Elizabeth angrily confronted them in an Iowa hotel room in October 2007. Palmieri, who was friends with Elizabeth and was called into the room by John Edwards to mediate the situation, recalled Blue justifying giving money to Hunter as a way of keeping her from divulging her affair to the media.
