FILE - In this Aug. 6, 2009, file photo, Rielle Hunter, mistress of former U.S. senator and presidential candidate John Edwards, leaves the Terry Sanford Federal Building and Courthouse in Raleigh, N.C. Hunter billed herself a truth seeker. Then she met John Edwards in the bar of a New York City hotel in February 2006. Their relationship opened the door to a landslide of lies, most notably that the relationship existed at all, and that the child it produced was his. Edwards' truthfulness now lies at the heart of his campaign finance trial, with the former Senator insisting he had no idea that money from a pair of wealthy benefactors was being spent to hide Hunter and keep her away from tabloids.
