Test? There Ain’t Gonna Be No Test

Last night I wrote:

There is another, perhaps more likely scenario: There will never be a paternity test, never be proof of the fatherhood of the child one way or the other.  If Edwards is in fact the father, it would certainly be in his interest to reach an agreement with Hunter to satisfy her demands without any proof of paternity. 

From the AP a short time ago:

The ex-mistress of former presidential candidate John Edwards says she will not participate in DNA testing to establish the paternity of her daughter.

Rielle Hunter’s lawyer, Robert Gordon, says his client is a private individual who wishes to maintain the privacy of herself and her daughter.

In a statement, Gordon says that Hunter is ruling out any kind of testing that could establish who the daughter’s father is.
