Edwards' attorneys: Ex-aide seeking financial gain

Attorneys for former presidential candidate John Edwards say an ex-aide who is releasing a tell-all book about his affair is "primarily motivated by financial gain."
A statement released Friday urges "extreme caution" about Andrew Young's book. The lawyers, Wade M. Smith and James P. Cooney, said they haven't been able to read the book but contend that it appears to include "many allegations which are simply false."
Young's book, "The Politician," is due out this weekend. It chronicles Edwards' affair with mistress Rielle Hunter, the lengths he went to cover it up and the marital mess it brought.
Edwards is now separated from his wife and faces a federal investigation. An attorney for the former North Carolina senator says he is confident Edwards didn't violate campaign laws.
