An Atlanta businesswoman is breaking her silence, claiming she has been involved in a 13-year-long affair with Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain. Source – http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/dpp/news/ginger-white-claims-affair-herman-cain-20111127-es
Over the Thanksgiving weekend, FOX 5 senior I-Team reporter Dale Russell sat down with Ginger White, who had an amazing story to tell.
“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.”
In an exclusive interview on FOX 5 News at 6, Russell will tell you why White is speaking out now, and show you the records that she says back up her story. He also talks to Herman Cain, who denies the affair. Cain’s attorney, Lin Wood, released the following statement to just moments ago:
“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 and most certainly those boundaries end outside of one’s bedroom door.
Mr. Cain has alerted his wife to this new accusation and discussed it with her. He has no obligation to discuss these types of accusations publicly with the media and he will not do so even if his principled position is viewed unfavorably by members of the media.”
My sense is that if a man is accused of groping by a good many woman as we have come to know as ‘the call of CAIN’, then as a matter of odds, there has to be at least one woman out there other than wifey who has taken the advances – if you will – to a a more shall we say – practical level!
Somehow I thinks its time for Herman Cain to get honest about his ‘love’ life and show some real respect for his wife, who had come out in his defense to press in recent weeks, citing Cain as a “gentleman who would never disrespect a women.”
The only reason I can think that the man could forward to perpetuate his lies is to conclude that the republicans do not want a man of color in the White House and are thus setting him up. Now while I would agree with that as a possibility, given the racist vilification of our current President, I find it hard to believe that a career business person would lay herself on the line to the extent that our new whistle-blower has done.
When all is said and done – all I can bring myself to do is reflect on the sanctity of marriage – on the holier than thou Republican attitudes as they birth yet another adulterer. The excuse for the denial of marriage equality has little to do with the interference on the morality of the immoral. So maybe this is indeed a sign from G-d- Rick, Rick, Newt and whomever – embrace equality and you may yet all be saved!
Herman Cain no one is their brother’s keeper… time up buddy!
