Daniel Freedman A lot of similarities between President Cleveland and the present scandal with John Edwards! Both had children out of wedlock and both tried to keep it secret by paying off their mistresses. Cleveland was a bachelor when the affair happened and Edwards was married so there are some differences. Neither was successful in hiding the truth. Cleveland's son went on to become a noted gynecologist in Buffallo NY and had the last name of King his adopted family.
This is a very interesting biography of a principaled man in an unprincipaled time. His treatment of Mary Halpern, however, was pretty rough.
