Before she died, Elizabeth Edwards recorded a videotape memorializing in detail everything she knew about John Edwards' affair with Rielle Hunter and attempt to cover it up and had it delivered to the prosecutors investigating him for campaign finance violations. Tough broad.

The report of the deathbed fuck-you comes from the National Enquirer, which has earned some credibility when it comes to covering the Edwardses:

IN a devastating act of ultimate revenge, a dying Elizabeth Ed­wards recorded a bombshell secret videotape for prosecutors – nailing her cheating husband John as he will stand trial on charges that could land him behind bars for 30 years.

That's the stunning secret behind the federal indictment brought against the disgraced former presidential candi­date on June 3 -– following a two-year grand jury investigation into whether he illegally used campaign funds to cover up his affair with his then-pregnant mistress Rielle Hunter.

"Elizabeth wanted to exact revenge against John for destroy­ing their 33-year marriage and family by cheating with Rielle," source close to the scandal told ENQUIRER.

"It was Elizabeth's idea to secret­ly record a video and tell what knew of the affair and John's horrific betrayal."

It's good to know that death has no purchase on the righteous rage of a wronged woman.
