Andrew Young holds first Triangle book signing

DURHAM It was a chance for people to ask him about his best-seller book "The Politician" focused on the John Edwards scandal.

It was a packed house at the Barnes and Noble at the Streets at Southpoint in Durham.

One person asked Young about the article in GQ Magazine focused on Rielle Hunter.

Hunter said Young's book is full of lies and claims it was Young not John Edwards who came up with the charade for Young to claim paternity of Hunter's baby. But Young says that's not so.

"It was absolutely, positively John Edwards' idea to do this, first thing," Young said. "Secondly, what difference does it make if it was my idea or his idea? If it was my idea he still went along with it. I wasn't running for president."

Another person asked Young if he and his family ever felt threatened by the people connected to the scandal.

"There's one person who disappears who's not in the book, who I can't mention, who is behind all of this and I think if they had it to do over again, we would've ended up in a pine box," Young said.

Young is also preparing for his next move in the legal battle with Hunter over the now infamous sex tape.

Young tells ABC11 Eyewitness News he's looking forward to having John Edwards and Hunter answer questions about their affair under oath.
