Was John Edwards a 'Monroe Madam' client?

MONROE - Former presidential candidate John Edwards is denying that he was a client of the Monroe mother accused of running a high-end brothel in Manhattan.

The website DNA Info reports Edwards paid one of Anna Gristina's escorts for sex in 2007 at an upper East Side hotel suite. The alleged events happened when Edwards was in New York City raising money for his failed run at the White House.

Meanwhile, Gristina is still in jail, charged with operating an upscale prostitution ring.
