Elizabeth Edwards opens furniture shop

Sun., Aug. 23, 2009

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – The wife of former North Carolina senator and presidential candidate John Edwards has opened a furniture store.

Multiple media outlets report that Elizabeth Edwards opened the store, called Red Window, in downtown Chapel Hill on Saturday. Edwards said the store will be similar to The Red Door, a charity store her mother managed in Japan.

John Edwards also attended the opening.

He confessed last year to an affair with Rielle Hunter, a videographer on his 2008 presidential campaign. Elizabeth Edwards said she’s trying to ignore tabloid reports that her husband fathered Hunter’s child.

A federal grand jury is investigating whether the candidate’s campaign funds were illegally paid to Hunter to keep quiet about the affair.
