Who is Ginger White?
http://www.nydailynews.com ^ | BY Bill Hutchinson & Joseph Straw

Posted on 11/29/2011 4:59:06 AM PST by Lucky9teen

The Atlanta woman who says she was Herman Cain’s mistress for 13 years is a down-on-her-luck single mom who once sued a former employer for sexual harassment.

Ginger White surfaced in bombshell fashion on Monday, telling an Atlanta TV station that she’s “not proud” of what she described as long-running sexual shenanigans with the married GOP White House contender.

“I didn’t want to come out this way,” she said in an interview with Atlanta’s FOX affiliate WAGA-TV that put Cain on the defensive even before it was aired.

White described herself in the interview as a jobless former businesswoman. She is middle-aged, has two children and was evicted from her Atlanta home earlier this month, according to a background check done by the TV station.

WAGA reporters also found records showing she has been hit with several eviction notices in DeKalb County, Ga., over the past six years.

She filed for bankruptcy 23 years ago, the station reported. In 2001, she also filed a sexual harassment suit, which was later settled, according to the station.

Her former business partner, Kimberly Vay, once sued her and accused her of stalking, the station reported.

Vay, who did not respond to calls for comment Monday, also sought an order of protection against White, charging that she was bombarded with emails and texts “threatening [a\] lawsuit” and defaming her character.

A judge ruled in favor of Vay in a libel suit she had filed against White, the station reported.

White admits she has struggled as a single mother, but added that her financial woes shouldn’t define her.

“I don’t think that makes me out to be a bad person,” she told the station. “It makes me out to be one of the millions of people right now trying to keep a roof over their head.”

White said she ignored the fact Cain was married during their alleged affair, which she said included trysts in hotel rooms across the country. She says they met at a business conference during the 1990s.

“It was pretty simple,” White told WAGA. “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.”

Cain, 65, who has been married for 43 years, went on CNN to deny the affair before White’s complete WAGA-TV interview was broadcast live.

His lawyer, Lin Wood, told the TV station that because White hasn't alleged harassment or assault, the matter doesn't belong in the news.

“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,” Wood wrote.

White said she came forward because she is upset over how Cain handled previous allegations that he sexually harassed four women, two of whom reportedly received cash settlements from the National Restaurant Association, where he was CEO during the 1990s.

“It bothered me that they were being demonized, sort of; they were treated as if they were automatically lying, and the burden of proof was on them,” White said. “I felt bad for them.”

Cain, the former head of the Godfather’s Pizza chain, was running near the top of the polls before the claims of sexual harassment broke.

Last week, Cain dropped to third place in a national GOP poll run by Quinnipiac University. He came in with 14% of the vote, behind ascendant former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

He said Monday he would stay in the race as long as he had his wife’s support. But White put even more pressure on him, offering what she said was proof of the alleged hush-hush romance.

She gave the TV station loads of cell phone records, and Cain’s personal cell phone, which he answered when someone from the station called it.

She also gave the station’s reporter two books Cain signed for her. In one of them, his 2001 autobiography “CEO of SELF,” Cain added a little note: “Friends are forever! Everything else is a bonus.”

If there's one thing I believe, now more than ever, it's that there are some women out there who are definitely money grubbers. Oh, that and someone is REALLY afraid of Herman Cain.

I mean, so there are 3 different women who have accused Cain of this crap, and yet ALL of them have a past filled with lawsuits and money hungry adventures. Not to mention other details, as to make their characters questionable.

Easy pickins for whoever fears Cain.... Just sayin'

Either that or he has really bad taste in women. The cell phone records are troubling unless she was stalking him and all the calls are from her to him. The length will be telling also.

I do not believe these women either. This Ginger woman’s proof is TWO books that Cain signed? OMG, kidding me?!

As for the cell phones, it’s possible he was trying to help her out and if so, she’s even lower than the other two for turning on him this way.

I still am hoping he gets the nomination. He’s what this country needs, a strong leader who speaks plainly.

(and I agree...someone does NOT want him opposing obama who he would wipe the floor with!)

She’s lying.

I know for a fact that hillary clinton was Cain’s mistress!

(Oh wait. I forgot that Hillary only likes women)

I know for a fact that Nancy Pelosi was Cain’s mistress!

(Oh wait. I forgot that Mr Cain has much better taste than that)

I know for a fact that Shirley temple was Cain’s mistress!

Unless of course there’s a large amount of hush money involved. In that case I was Cain’s mistress. (Why can’t us guys get some money from this too?)

I agree with Lucky9teen that someone is terrified of Herman Cain. That’s why the bimbos keep getting dragged out.

Remember Clarence Thomas. Every time the leftists are afraid of a conservative black man they try the sexual harrassment game.

I have my boss’s number and a few IBM techs because I work in system support. Working with same bunch of folks mostly for 7 yrs now...and I call them all hours of day and night depending on what is going on (I’m on 24/7 on call support, as they are). I for one am not so shocked at the time of day the calls are going in and out. Maybe he told her to call him AFTER business hours to discuss whatever? Also, for all we know that cell of hers is a plant! I mean..someone who knows Cain’s number used that phone and handed it off to Ms. Ginger Spice. I simply don’t believe this woman.

This is a man who is running for president..his time is incredibly valuable, and tightly budgeted and scheduled. And his cell number is tightly controlled..otherwise all he'd be doing all day is look at his phone every time it rings or vibrates...

He does know her, that's obvious..sorry..but he's got to do much better to convince me..

Where there’s smoke could be applied to this woman.

History of stalking, particularly via text/phone.

Desperate for money.

Oh she is coming forward because of concern for the other accusers. Never mind they are accusing him of something entirely different and worse. She felt bad for these women but claims to have slept with him for 13 years and never felt bad for the wife? Uh huh

And she didn’t want to tell her story but a “friend” was tipping off the media so she just had to come forward. Please

“It bothered me that...the burden of proof was on them,” White said.

What, you thought it's ok to bring ugly accusations of moral turpitude against a person with no proof at all? Fine, I'm calling you a gold-digger, homewrecker, liar and stalker. Let's see your proof of innocence.

Sorry, but this is the kind of smoke being blown up our a$$es, IMO. It’s BS.

These women, appear to be trollops. In it for the money. They come out with these baseless, vague accusations against Herman and what has been proven of what they’ve said thus far?

Have YOU seen any proof of ANYTHING he’s been accused of? Cuz I haven’t...

In fact, I’ve seen MORE proof of just the opposite, hence why I believe this is being done, on purpose, to bring down Cains candidacy. Considering who Cain is going up against...ya know, LYING, UNETHICAL, IMMORAL, BACKSTABBING SOB’S in our government (from both sides), I tend to think if there’s smoke, there’s fire....and I think the fire is on THEM, not Cain.

So far, I haven’t seen anything.

No, Hillary wanted ME, not Herman. I know. She banged against my door at 1 AM. I opened the door and there she was, nekkid, lying on the floor, fully exposed, puking it all up.

Her husband was across the hall occupied with this other woman who arrived there with them earlier.

Hmm.

Cain said he would run as long as his wife supported him. So any decision is not up to him??

Gonna blame his withdrawal on his wife??

Definitely a pattern here. All were needy and knew who to go to.

I’m not convinced he’s going to be able to let this slide this time....once they check the phone times...the hotels they stayed at...etc. It’s going to be tough to deny this if what she’s saying is true...but it is obvious he knows her. He has not denied that.

If we may assume for a moment that it's David Axelrod coming up with these tawdry scenarios played out by these nut cases or trollops, that does not speak well of what goes on inside David's head.

The explanation for why she came forward is an absolute lie, as well as completely changed from the reason reported last night.

If you had a perfectly positive consensual relationship with someone you would not be upset that they denied sexually harrassing someone, you would tend to believe them.

I don’t think that someone is really afraid of Herman Cain as much as they are afraid of seeing a viable conservative candidate for national office who happens to be black. The train of suspicious (often white) “other” women is a shot across the bow for any future candidates who dare stray off the plantation.

Fair-minded people just want solid evidence, lonestar. Personally, I can't stand Cain. I think he's an incompetent and a huckster. But that's political. I know absolutely nothing about his personal affairs.

The more serious the accusation, the more evidence one ought to bring.

So far, all the evidence I see is that this woman has been a repeat deadbeat tenant, didn't defend herself against a stalking charge by some woman bodybuilder, made a harassment charge against an employer sometime back, claims to be a slut these thirteen years, and thinks it's ok to torpedo a man's reputation and marriage with no evidence.

The only thing here which lessens my opinion of Cain is that he has very bad taste in lawyers. I'd fire that one from a circus cannon.

The first 3 were obviously made up by Axlerod. This one we will see but being skeptical is hardly denial. Isn’t that the term algore uses for Global Warming? It’s good to be skeptical when liberals are around.

There is no she-said / he-said about a 13 year affair. If it happened then there is proof all over the place including phone records. Cain is not going to get out of this one with his “It didn't happen” response if that sort of evidence is brought forward.

All this woman had to say is: “We are just friends” and let the press prove otherwise. But she preferred to dump all of this out of concern for how he treated the other women? He treated them respectfully. How about how SHE IS TREATING CAINS WIFE? This woman is financially needy and willing to confess like the press is the Pope to get paid off.

I doubt that Cain’s wife didn’t know about this. Things like this are probably why it took her nearly three weeks to come out with the ritual “stand by your man” statement after the first women emerged. But since she’s supposedly a Democrat, it’s probably not that big a deal to her.

All these things seem to have happened or started during the 1990s, when he was a powerful person at the Natl Restaurant Association and did have a lot of people seeking jobs or other favors from him. And all of the women were needy in one way or another, or at any rate vulnerable at that time (one of the women in the employment complaints was very young), so I guess you could say there’s a pattern.

I knew that when he started attacking and trashing them rather than responding to it honestly and with humility that some woman somewhere was going to get mad at that treatment and come forward on her own. And that is exactly what happened; Ginger White said she was mad at the way the other women were treated and she wanted to support them.

The things that brought Clinton down (well, except that he was saved at the last minute by the Dem Senate) started with a woman suing him for defamation of character because he had denied the story and trashed her and sicced his press goons on her and she got angry. You’d think that might have been an object lesson. But like Clinton, Cain has a massive ego, and people like that never learn.

Absolutely nothing because every detail of his past would be hidden by the lame stream media and everyone with any knowledge of it would have already been killed by the democrat hit men.

As evidence, please find obama's real birth certificate (I've still not seen it), or school records, or baptism records etc.

If you have an affair with somebody for 13 years, you should be able to come up with some evidence more solid than two signed books and some cellphone records.

Maybe she will, but I'll wait until I see it.
