The Wall Street Journal picks up allegations from a new book by disgruntled former Edwards presidential campaign employee Andrew Young. Senator Edwards, recall, was the Democratic Party's vice presidential candidate in 2004: "Young says Edwards is an Atkins-dieter who hated making appearances at state fairs where 'fat rednecks try to shove food down my face. I know I'm the people's senator, but do I have to hang out with them?' Before a SEIU candidate forum in Las Vegas, Young says Edwards made him cut out a 'made in the USA' label from Young's own suit to sew in place of Edwards's 'made in Italy' label." The SEIU is the Service Employees International Union. The Journal has no response from Mr. Edwards. There's also an angle involving Bunny Mellon.
