Ex-presidential candidate John Edwards made a sex tape with his one-time mistress Rielle Hunter, according to Andrew Young, an ex-aide of the disgraced politician.

He claims that he found the videotape in July 2008 while rummaging through a pile of garbage at a Raleigh, North Carolina house Hunter once lived in.

"There was one tape that was marked 'special,'" Young told ABC News in a clip that will air in its entirety on 20/20 Friday. "It's a sex tape of Rielle and John Edwards made just a couple of months before the Iowa caucuses. It's definitely him... but you see -- you clearly see his face for a long time. And I can't speak for the other body parts, but it's definitely his face.”
