Edwards Donor Warned Obama About Affair

A donor to former John Edwards' 2008 presidential campaign testified that he "steered Barack Obama's campaign away from considering Edwards as a potential running mate or Cabinet member because of Edwards' affair with Rielle Hunter," NBC News report.

Tim Toben "said he called the Obama campaign in June 2008 after Edwards told him that he might be Obama's running mate. Toben said he warned Obama advisers because he feared that Edwards' affair would have 'destroyed' Democratic chances in the general election."
