Before the next Herman Cain accuser officially made her presence known on the national scene, Herman Cain rushed to CNN to deny everything she was about to say. He spoke to Wolf Blitzer, explaining to ‘Blitz’ that he knew the woman, but denied ever having any relations with her. “I wanted to get out in front of it,” Cain said, “I have nothing to hide.”
And then at 6PM today, the woman named Ginger White, came forward.
ATLANTA, Ga. – An Atlanta businesswoman is breaking her silence, claiming she has been involved in a 13-year-long affair with Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain.
Over the Thanksgiving weekend, FOX 5 senior I-Team reporter Dale Russell sat down with Ginger White, who had a story to tell.
“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.’”
But like Herman Cain said when a previous accuser came forward, for every woman who accuses him of sexual harassment, there are thousands of other women he didn’t harass. Why can’t these accusers understand that?
