A blogger provides the latest scoop -- plus pictures -- on John Edwards, his wife and his lover. (There is no cook or thief involved, sorry.)

Garance Franke-Ruta links to blogger Robert Scoble's report of the latest developments in the John Edwards mistress saga, and now there are new photos.

The big story? Rielle Hunter joined Edwards during his presidential announcement tour. There are photos of Hunter filming Edwards and chatting aboard a campaign plane.

The big question? Mark Murray and Chuck Todd ask it: "Are we really expected to believe that if Elizabeth Edwards knew about her husband’s affair in 2006, she'd allow Hunter to be on the campaign trail?"

Inquiring minds ...
