President Obama was in Ohio today, trying to build last-minute support for the issue he’s staked so much on: health care reform. Democratic leaders and the White House are pushing toward a final vote this week. They need 216 votes to pass the bill and they’re still scrambling to nail them down. The full-court press is aimed at 37 House democrats who are still on the fence. Tonight we’ll have the latest on the day’s developments, plus a Keeping Them Honest report from Dana Bash. It’s about exotic – and wildly expensive – new drugs for people with cancer and other life-threatening diseases and the big giveaway discovered in the health care reform for the companies that make them.
Also in the mix tonight: candid talk from John Edwards’ former mistress and mother of his 2-year-old daughter. Rielle Hunter has kept her silence for years but is now speaking out. All the details tonight about what she told GQ magazine about the man she calls Johnny–plus the steamy photo shoot that now has her crying foul, and, oh yes, that sordid sex tape that has surfaced. Along with Hunter’s side of the story, we’ll hear from Andrew Young, Edwards’ former campaign aide, who initially took the fall for his boss by claiming to be the father of Hunter’s baby.
Plus, a Roman Catholic priest who still celebrates mass, even after his former archdiocese kicked him out of his former church and paid more than $1.3 million to settle a molestation lawsuit. A state agency cleared the priest of the charges decades ago. So why did the church settle the case anyway? Gary Tuchman reports on the secret documents the church kept to itself for decades. Tonight you’ll see them for the first time on national television.
