The Headline You Knew Was Coming
RALEIGH (CBS/AP) As if John Edwards was not dealing with enough problems already, new reports have surfaced that the former Democratic presidential candidate has starred in his very own tape that contains "several sex acts," reports media blog Gawker.com.
The list of Edwards' troubles has been piling up. Last week, Edwards admitted that he fathered a child with Rielle Hunter, a videographer he hired before his second White House bid. In a new book, a former aide claims that Edwards asked him to fake a paternity test and steal one of the baby's diapers to perform a DNA test on its poop.

Edwards is also facing questions about whether he improperly used campaign funds in paying more than $100,000 to Hunter’s production company.
The alleged sex tape which is said to feature Edwards and Hunter, "is explicit and reveals that Edwards 'is physically very striking, in a certain area,'" the site reported.
Edwards' aide, Andrew Young, reportedly found the footage on an unmarked tape.
Young mentioned the existence of the tape in his book proposal last year, theNew York Daily News reported.
