But now a “civil war” has erupted inside of the network, an insider claims, on exactly when the confession will air!
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.
Herman Cain to Address 4th Accuser (Sharon Bialek) Who Claims Sexual Harassment … “He put his hand up my skirt” (UPDATE: Fifth Woman Comes Forward)
The 4th accuser has come forward. Sharon Bialek alleged at a news conference that Republican Presidential primary candidate Herman Cain sexually harassed her in 1997. She claims that Cain reached her skirt as she sought help in finding a job. Herman Cain has denied the allegation. In listening to the accounts of Sharon Bialek I would ask one thing, what she describes is not sexual harassment, it was sexual assault. Nothing was said until now? Why? Also, you might have wanted to come across as a little more credible by having some one other than Gloria Allred as your mouth piece. Just saying.
“Instead of going into the offices, he suddenly reached over and … put his hand on my leg, under my skirt toward my genitals,” Bialek said about the incident in the car.
“He also pushed my head toward his crotch,” she said.
Herman Cain says that he is going to come out and address the allegations from the 4th sexual harassment accuser.
In the midst of a barrage sexual harassment allegations, including a fourth accuser speaking out, Herman Cain made an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on ABC.
Kimmel devoted much of his opening monologue Monday to the allegations made by Sharon Bialek, who is the latest woman to accuse Cain of sexual harassment during his tenure at the National Restaurant Association, and the first woman to come forward publicly in a press conference.
It appears now that a fifth accuser has come forward.
Donna Donella, 40, of Arlington, said the USAID paid Cain to deliver a speech to businessmen and women in Egypt in 2002, during which an Egyptian businesswoman in her 30s asked Cain a question.
“And after the seminar was over,” Donella told The Washington Examiner, “Cain came over to me and a colleague and said, ‘Could you put me in touch with that lovely young lady who asked the question, so I can give her a more thorough answer over dinner?’”
I have to agree with Legal Insurrection and the Lonely Conservative, even if none of the allegations have any merit, this can’t be good for Herman Cain. The full court press is on and it appears that it will not stop until Cain is destroyed.
I would say this to all the MSM sharks circling in the bloody water, where were you with this vigor when former President Bill Clinton was being accused of sexual harassment and rape? Hmm? Yup, no liberal MSM bias here.
Following the outing of GOP Presidential contender Herman Cain’s past and a sexual harassment allegation by two woman, Cain is considering suing The Politico. Although the explanations from the Herman Cain camp could have been organized and presented better, one still has to wonder how much of this is an over the top political hatchet job? Cain needs to just present the facts, if he is legally allowed to and move on. However, the MSM will not be satisfied until they have destroyed Cain and left him as political road kill.
A Herman Cain aide said Thursday that the Cain campaign is considering its legal options over the original Politico story, which revealed that the former head of the National Restaurant Association was accused of sexually harassing at least two women during his tenure in the 1990s.
“This is likely not over with Politico from a legal perspective,” a campaign official told the Post, stopping short of explaining what exactly he meant by taking legal action against the publication.
As reported at the Gateway Pundit, Cain may also want to add the NY Times to the lawsuit. However, an interesting thing is occurring when it comes to Herman Cain’s polling. Following the allegations coming out and the subsequent rebuttals from Cain … the Hermanator finds himself ahead still in the polls. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, Cain leads the GOP candidates in the national poll … Cain 26%, Romney 23% and Gingrich 14%. Herman Cain also leads in a Rasmussen South Carolina poll, Cain 33% Romney 23% and Gingrich 15%. In an ABC-Washington Post poll, it is basically a dead heat between Cain and Romney.
The issue is not whether Herman Cain will finally tell all and explain the matter away, it is whether the bias MSM will let the story go as they smell blood in the water and can aid their candidate Barack Obama.
The Sliming of Herman Cain Begins … Two Women Accused Herman Cain of Inappropriate Behavior & Sexual Harrassment
The following MSM sliming of Herman Cain was not only expected, it was predicted.
The Politico has reported that in the 1990′s Herman Cain was accused by two woman who complained if inappropriate behavior while he was the head of the National Restaurant Association. It is official, the political sliming of Herman Cain has begun. The MSM will do everything possible to destroy a Conservative black man running for office. Let everyone remember that at this point, the story is based on allegations.
During Herman Cain’s tenure as the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, at least two female employees complained to colleagues and senior association officials about inappropriate behavior by Cain, ultimately leaving their jobs at the trade group, multiple sources confirm to POLITICO.
The women complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Cain that made them angry and uncomfortable, the sources said, and they signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them financial payouts to leave the association. The agreements also included language that bars the women from talking about their departures.
What a shock that the hit piece comes out as Herman Cain edges into the lead for the GOP nomination for 2012. Herman Cain represents a greater threat to Democrats than Sarah Palin did and look how she and her family were savaged. Cain had previously predicted that he was in for a “high-tech lynching”. Ann Coulter agrees, and stated last night, “It’s outrageous the way liberals treat a black conservative. This is another high-tech lynching” (VIDEO) .
But wouldn’t liberals and Democrats still find a racially-based way to attack Cain? They certainly found a way to attack Clarence Thomas, the black, conservative Supreme Court justice.
“They’re going to come after me more viciously than they would a white candidate,” Cain responded. “You’re right. Clarence Thomas. And so, to use Clarence Thomas as an example, I’m ready for the same high-tech lynching that he went through — for the good of this country.” Cain smiled broadly. “I’m ready for the same high-tech lynching.”
However, the thing is as the Gateway Pundit reminds us, it will not matter whether its Herman Cain or any other GOP candidate, the liberal MSM will make every effort to destroy them and aid Obama in gaining reelecting the White House. Imagine if such comments were made of Barack Obama … who ever made them would be called a racist.
Herman Cain Leads Mitt Romney in Republican Presidential Nomination Des Moines Register’s Iowa Poll, 23% to 22%
YES HE CAIN …
The Herman Cain express rolls on. For those that said Herman Cain’s poll numbers were the flavor of the month and he had no staying power, think again. It would appear that Herman Cain’s poll numbers have legs as he heads Mitt Romney in the most recent Des Moines Register’s Iowa Poll for the GOP nomination.
Herman Cain and Mitt Romney top The Des Moines Register’s new Iowa Poll, with the retired pizza executive edging the former Massachusetts governor 23 percent to 22 percent in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.
Cain has surged 13 percentage points since the first Iowa Poll of the caucus cycle, conducted in late June. His rise has come despite spending little time in Iowa recently, campaigning here just once since the Aug. 13 Iowa straw poll, where he placed fifth.
As Cain surges, Texas Gov. Rick Perry continues in GOP nomination campaign free-fall as he is now in 5th place in the Iowa poll with only 7%. It is safe to say Perry has fallen and he can’t get up. However, the question still remains whether Cain can translate a lead in a poll to a ground organization in Iowa for individuals to show up for the 2012 Iowa Caucus and vote for him.
YES WE CAIN …
According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, Herman Cain is now in the lead in Iowa among GOP Presidential hopefuls. Cain leads the pack with28% followed by Mitt Romney with 21% and Ron Paul at 10%. As much as Cain has benefited from recent debates, Texas Governor Rick Perry has obviously not. With Perry’s last debate performance, is it any wonder why he has dropped to 7%.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Iowa caucus-goers shows that Cain is in front with 28% followed by former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney at 21%. Congressman Ron Paul is a distant third at 10% followed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 9%, Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann at 8%, and Texas Governor Rick Perry at 7%. The sixth place finish for Perry is a sharp decline from early September when Perry was the frontrunner both nationally and in Iowa. (To see survey question wording, click here).
Herman Cain is proving to be the People’s champion. As Strata-Sphere states, Cain is turning the Political Industrial Complex on its head these days. Cain is the non-politician running the non-typical politician campaign. What Cain lacks in donation dollars, he more than makes up in charisma and the People’s support. Cain is a breathe of fresh air in a political environment when We the People are tired of politicians … Cain is a man of morals, principles and conservative convictions. No wonder he leads in the polls.
As reported at NRO, Cain is about to make a serious play in Iowa … YES HE CAIN!!!
RUT-ROH, Obama even sinking in the polls among Blacks.
As President Barack Obama falls in every job approval poll, according to the most recent Gallup poll Obama is at an all time low among blacks. Only 80% of blacks said they approved of Barack Obama’s handling of his job. Yikes, this coming from the Obamamessiah who garnered 95% of the black vote in 2008. How racist, they are against Obama. Oh, wait, they are blacks who now oppose Obama. How will Obama’s minions spin this?
Overall, Gallup has Obama underwater in job approval 40%-53%. Even more concerning for Obama is that only 35% of Independents and 26% of Pure Independents approve of Obama’s job as President. As Weasel Zippers states, there is trouble in paradise.
Meanwhile, only 80 percent of blacks told Gallup in the week that ended on Oct. 9 that they approved of the way Obama was handling his job as president. Previously, Obama’s lowest approval among blacks had been the 81 percent he had received in the weeks that ended on March 6 and August 14 of this year.
Obama’s highest all-time approval among blacks was 96 percent–a level it reached during five different weeks of 2009, Obama’s first year in office.
However, the same poll that shows Obama’s freefall in pretty much every demographic has Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain surging in the polls. Is it any wonder why Democrats, the MSM and liberal blacks are attacking Cain as not being black enough? Cain represents Obama and the Democrats greatest threat. How dare a black man be a Conservative Republican. The LEFT has lost their collective minds and fear Cain as they have gone so far in recent days with Cain’s increasing popularity questioning as to attack Cain that he is not liberal or black enough. UNREAL.
In a poll of 1,064 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents conducted Oct. 3-7, 18 percent said they supported Cain for president. That put the former Godfathers Pizza CEO in a close second behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who placed first with 20 percent.
Herman Cain has become such a threat to Obama and Democrats that the liberal, white, state run media feels the need to attack a black man as not being black enough. WOW. Keep it up MSM, you are helping Cain, not hurting him. Lawrence O’Donnell actually accused Cain of dodging the draft when in fact he actually worked for the Navy. However, in typical liberal MSM fashion … Lawrence O’Donnell actually dodged the draft during Vietnam as he avoided it by attending college. How disrespectful could the MSM possibly be? Keep it up MSM … you are making Herman Cain a super star.
Republican Presidential 2012 primary candidate Herman Cain says … African-Americans have been brainwashed into voting for Democrats. When a demographic supports the Democrat party with 95% of the vote, receives in return a record 17% unemployment and still unanimous supports the Democrat party … its hard to argue. Of course, had it been some other republican that made such a comment, they would have been branded as a racist.
The one African-American running for the GOP presidential nomination said Wednesday the black community was ‘brainwashed’ for traditionally siding with liberal politicians.
“African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open minded, not even considering a conservative point of view,” Godfather’s Pizza executive Herman Cain said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” in an interview airing Wednesday between 5-7 p.m. ET. “I have received some of that same vitriol simply because I am running for the Republican nomination as a conservative. So it’s just brainwashing and people not being open minded, pure and simple.”
Weasel Zippers adds … replace “Jewish’ with “Blacks” and you have the same accurate statement. Agreed.
One has to wonder why Blacks put all of their eggs in one basket, in political terms it makes them irrelevant. You have one party that will not care to target them because they only receive 5% of the vote and you have another, in Democrats, that just take them for granted. At some point, even if its just to send a message to Democrats, blacks need to rethink their vote in order to be relevant. There is a reason why the Independent vote is courted … they are perceived to be open-minded.
It’s official, Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels will not run for the GOP nomination for the 2012 Presidential election.According to Daniels, the ultimate decision came down his family’s reticence about a campaign. How sad that this is what Presidential campaigns have come to. However, I have to agree with Hot Air, that Daniels was not terribly enthusiastic about having his family history turned into campaign fodder.
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels told supporters in an email early Sunday that he will not run for president in 2012, a decision he said ultimately came down to his family’s reticence about a campaign.
The announcement by the former Office of Management and Budget director and favorite of much of the Republican establishment will again roil the unsettled GOP field—and likely intensify efforts to convince another major candidate to join the race, such as former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush or New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie
However, there is one man who emphatically and with overwhelming jumped into the race and that individual is Herman Cain. Amid cheers and applause, Herman Cain officially began his run as an “outside the DC Beltway” candidacy. Cain is a different kind of GOP candidate and maybe that is exactly what is needed. The Left Coat Rebel offers a nice picture in contrast of Obama and Cain in their younger years college daze.
In front of thousands in Atlanta, GA Herman Cain Announced Candidacy
Tea Party favorite Herman Cain announced his long-shot presidential candidacy to a raucous crowd in Atlanta Saturday, yelling, “I’m running for president of the United States and I’m not running for second.”
At a rally attended by thousands, the businessman, author and talk radio show host showed he knows how to wow a conservative gathering. The crowd chanted, “Herman, Herman, Herman,” as Cain unleashed the same soaring rhetoric and relentless attacks on President Obama that has created buzz in recent weeks.
“Let me tell you some of the reasons why I’m running for president of the United States.We have become a nation of crises,” he said, citing morals, the economy, entitlement spending, immigration and foreign affairs as among the crises facing the nation.
“And we’ve got a deficiency of leadership crisis in the White House,” he said to roaring cheers.
The Other McCain make a great point in analyzing the trend of those who want to challenge Obama in 2012 and those that opt out for what ever reason. Herman Cain is enthusiastic and in it to win it, no matter what the intellectual political pundits say.
Dear God, please not Jeb Bush! But you see the pattern: Barbour quit, Trump quit, Huckabee quit and now Daniels quits, while Herman Cain — the man who all the pundits say can’t win — just keeps going and going
