V for Vulgar?

So I was reading this article about how former presidential nominee and senator John Edwards is facing some pretty serious charges of fraud and such. Anyway, as I was reading the following the para-graph I…well you have to read it for yourself.

After Elizabeth Edwards died, I wondered here on Healthland about what would happen to her children. The piece focused on her younger kids, Emma Claire and Jack, who were 12 and 10 when she died. But now, just six months later, it’s Cate Edwards I feel worst for. According to a profile of her in The Daily Beast, Cate put “a lot of time, blood, sweat, and tears into [Edwards’ presidential] campaign.” She believed in him, and an anonymous family friend noted that Cate has remained close with her father, despite his shortcomings, which now apparently include a complex cover-up in which $925,000 in illicit campaign contributions from two moneyed supporters was allegedly channeled to Rielle Hunter – Edwards’ former campaign videographercum-mistress and the mother of his daughter, now 3 – and campaign staffer Andrew Young, who claimed the baby was his in order to protect Edwards, his boss.

Now am I reading that right? Cum-Mistress? I mean I totally get that they are referring to her as going from his videographer to his mistress but seriously, they could have said it better in this case. Its a flat out slap in the face to the woman. It paints a picture of her as a whore however unintentional it may be. I hate it when men can screw around constantly and people are cool with it. A woman gets knocked by this guy and she gets vilified. News flash folks. Woman like sex too. Get out of the 1950’s.
