Staffer Reflects on the Edwards Scandal

Wendy Button, a former aide to John Edwards, writes about her experience working for the now disgraced former presidential candidate.

"The unbelievable and absurd details to this scandal have made it easy for the jokes to flow on late night TV, the anger to erupt on the editorial pages, and the judgment reigns down on cable TV. These are all parts of a scandal, and they give us an excuse to look away from another hard truth -- this is a sad story."

"For the hundreds of us who didn't repair sex tapes with scotch tape, the truth and the details of John's mess, they break our hearts all over again. It's like watching and re-watching disaster footage and there's nothing we can do about it to stop everything from crumbling to the ground."
