Edwards' mistress wants return of 'private' tape

Edwards' mistress wants return of 'private' tape

The mistress of former presidential candidate John Edwards wants a "very private and personal" videotape back from a former aide who wrote a book about the politician.
Rielle Hunter filed a temporary restraining order against former Edwards aide Andrew Young in a North Carolina court. It seeks the return of photos and videos, including one she says she made in 2006 while working for Edwards.
In his book out this week, Young describes viewing a sex tape that showed Edwards and a woman he assumed was Hunter.
Authorities said in court filings obtained Friday by The Associated Press that Young's attorney said he could not immediately turn over the tape.
Edwards, a former North Carolina senator, only recently admitted paternity of Hunter's daughter. He and wife, Elizabeth, have separated.
