Another Woman Comes Forward … Ginger White Alleges a 13 Year Affair with GOP Presidential Hopeful Herman Cain
Here we go again …
Ginger White, a Georgia woman comes forward and has stated that she had a 13 year affair with Republican Presidential hopeful Herman Cain.Ginger White claims that the relationship ended about eight months ago, just before Cain announced his plans to run for the GOP nomination. She claims that she was cell phone bills that included 61 phone calls or text messages to or from Herman Cain’s private cell phone.
I’m not proud,” White told Russell. “I didn’t want to come out with this. I did not.”
White was worried a political tsunami was headed her way. So, she decided to head it off, by confessing she was involved in a 13-year-long affair with presidential hopeful Herman Cain.
“It was pretty simple,” White said. “It wasn’t complicated. I was aware that he was married. And I was also aware I was involved in a very inappropriate situation, relationship.”
Ginger White says she met Herman Cain in the late 90s in Louisville, Kentucky, when as president of the National Restaurant Association, he made a presentation. She was impressed. She says they shared drinks afterwards and he invited her back to his hotel room.
“’I’d like to see you again,’” White said Cain told her. “’You are beautiful to me, and I would love for us to continue this friendship.’”
She says in his hotel room, he pulled out a calendar and invited her to meet him in Palm Springs. She accepted, and she says the affair began.
Actually, Herman Cain preempted the “breaking news” of the latest affair as he was asked whether he had an affair by Wolf Blitzer during an interview on CNN’s, The Situation Room:
Herman Cain has denied any sexual relationship; however, he does state that he knows Ginger White. Outside the Beltway has the response and statement from Herman Cain’s attorney.Well this is rather telling or is it damning? Cain has denied the affair, yet his attorney’s statement does not.
“Mr. Cain has been informed today that your television station plans to broadcast a story this evening in which a female will make an accusation that she engaged in a 13-year long physical relationship with Mr. Cain. This is not an accusation of harassment in the workplace – this is not an accusation of an assault – which are subject matters of legitimate inquiry to a political candidate.
Rather, this appears to be an accusation of private, alleged consensual conduct between adults – a subject matter which is not a proper subject of inquiry by the media or the public. No individual, whether a private citizen, a candidate for public office or a public official, should be questioned about his or her private sexual life. The public’s right to know and the media’s right to report has boundaries a end outside of one’s bedroom door …
Um, that’s the statement? Really? So it would appear that this was not sexual harassment like other woman have claimed; however, instead a consensual affair? No this may not be a crime, but I beg to differ with Herman Cain’s folks … if you are running for public office or are in public office, it is fair game and not off limits. Some one running for the highest office in the land would be insane to think that this is off limits. Insane or just naive. Let’s be fair here, the GOP went after Bill Clinton with the Paula Jones scandals and his many others. Fair is fair, no matter how unfair it is.
I am a Herman Cain fan and although I figured he was pretty much toast after hearing his answers on foreign policy … this will finish him. Unlike the other vague allegations of sexual harassment that had little evidence to back the the stories up, this one is quite different. Also note, an affair is hardly a crime, however, the damage is done. Sorry folks, Cain is toast, stick a fork in him, he’s done.
