Tamarac Native Rielle Hunter Gives Her Side of the John Edwards Story

There have been lots of books written so far about the 2008 presidential campaign, but no one's got a story half as wild as Rielle Hunter. If (OK, when) she writes it, let's hope she goes all the way back to her childhood in the Woodlands community of Tamarac, where she was raised by a beauty-queen mother and philandering, morally bankrupt father named Richard Druck, a notorious Fort Lauderdale attorney made the subject of this profile by Bob Norman in 2008.

Considering that her father electrocuted her horse to collect the insurance, it's easy to understand how Hunter could have a hard time as an adult separating the good guys from the... well... the John Edwardses of the world.

GQ just released this exclusive Q&A with Hunter.
