The Atlanta woman who says she was Herman Cains 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 shes not proud of what she described as long-running sexual shenanigans with the married GOP White House contender.
I didnt want to come out this way, she said in an interview with Atlantas 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 shouldnt define her.
I dont 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 Whites 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 Godfathers 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 wifes 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 Cains personal cell phone, which he answered when someone from the station called it.
She also gave the stations 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.
Cain doesn’t deny knowing her.
The rest is tabloid gossip.
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.
It's kind of like "Man" and the nazi sex slave stories ~ used to see that at barbershops.
What could it take to shatter your faith in Perry?
Sitting on a "love seat"...no less!
I have a feeling that even Newt wouldn't have anything but a platonic relationship with that shrew.
As this thing progresses Cain supporters will go thru the denial stages..and understandably so if the story is true.
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.
Question..if Cain were a Democrat, what would we all eb sayign about him now?
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.
Whoopi, get your butt over here ~ 'splain to the man!
IMO, a better question would have been, "Who is Herman Cain."
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.
Pray for Herman
I would be saying the same people who were trashing Palin are now trashing Cain. I would then be wondering how many were really DNC plants to disrupt FR??
Pray for America
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.
