The Background: When asked if he was involved in a payoff in regard to his affair, John Edwards claimed to be no part of it.
I've never paid a dime of money to any of the people who are involved. I've never asked anybody to pay a dime of money. Never been told that any money's been paid. Nothing has been done at my request. So if the allegation is that somehow I participated in the payment of money, that is a lie, an absolute lie.
