Skip to comments.Who is Ginger White?
Posted on 11/29/2011 4:59:06 AM PST by Lucky9teen
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.
LOL! Good one, John O...if that is your real name...
And if she, as she claims, is Cain's mistress the same would apply. If he was helping her out he sure did a lousy job of it!
Of course, everyone knows that the National Restaurant Association is just a big lobby organization.
Yes..read it this morning..trying to remember where,,I think it was in the original reporter’s story...I’ll see if I can find it for you..
Neal Boortz talking about this now.
He is not
what would we all eb (sic) sayign (sic) about him now?
The press would hide it just like Edwards, et al. So when it does come to light about a Dem it has a very high percentage of being true.
The press and the Dem Party has used lies for so long to personally destroy conservatives that there is a SUPER high probability that the accusations are totally false.
And you know this how...?
In denial about Cain’s little hobby? Name calling is definitely not a grown up, appropriate or constructive reaction to your anger towards your misplaced trust in your candidate.
NationalReview.com..click on the Cain story on the homepage...inside there a link to the reporter’s story...let me know what you think..
I didn't say I necessarily believed where there was smoke there was fire; rather, I wanted Freepers to test the validity of that old adage. And you certainly have.
—And you know this how...?—
Because she is a human being. None of us are the people we were “back then”. Not a single one of us.
Really? I don't see any mention of any test of any validity of any "old adage" anywhere in your post. Your post reads exactly like you were piling on, just like the media wants you to do. Now, when you are called on it you're crawfishing and trying to blame me. Priceless.....
I just tuned to Boortz and he has moved on. What did he say about the Ginger White matter?
what does that voice analyzer say about her credibilty?
Thank you, that is so very reassuring! :)
The Texas doofus has been busy governing one of the most successful states in the USA for 13 years.
Sorry, you’re mistaken. I don’t necessarily believe Cain is guilty of what he’s been accused of. I don’t necessarily think he’s innocent either. I just don’t know.
2 Unambiguous video, audio, or hard copy evidence
3 Admission of guilt by Cain himself
These would be acceptable evidence. And so far we have none. We can only consider the source, and she doesnt look good at all.
Unlike the characterizations of the those who would disparage Cain supporters, many of us are merely loyal to a person we believe to be a good man slandered. People forget that anyone can say anything about anyone. He could be lying to us, but that would not hold up very long. I think the golden rule should apply here. If I were to run for city council or school board, someone could slander me, ruin my career, family, and life just because they want the office.
It is not in my character to throw someone under the bus just because it is politically expedient.
The only way he loses my support is if he is PROVEN to be a liar. Otherwise this is all calumny.
