Skip to comments.Cain Denies New Allegations, as Woman Claims They Had 13-Year Affair
Posted on 11/28/2011 3:16:15 PM PST by Lazlo in PA
ATLANTA -- Herman Cain on Monday pre-emptively denied a forthcoming accusation by a woman who is expected to say she had a 13-year affair with the Republican presidential candidate.
In an apparent effort to get ahead of the story, Cain appeared in a cable news interview to say the woman is "someone who I know, who is an acquaintance, who I thought was a friend."
MyFoxAtlanta.com released some details of the story, which is scheduled to air Monday night, shortly after Cain appeared on CNN -- identifying the accuser as an Atlanta businesswoman named Ginger White.
"It was pretty simple," White told the station. "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."

No, it absolutely doesn’t matter. I am so tired, extremely tired, of conservatives rolling over and quiting on the flimsiest of reasons. Cain’s 999 plan is a good plan. He is spot-on in his foreign policy and I like his common sense approach to domestic affairs. I like his adherence to the Constitution.
I WILL BE VOTING FOR CAIN and if the republicans put up a RINO, they will have no one to blame for their loss but themselves.
We all liked Cain but this is one too many women coming out,he’s through IMHO.Absent cain passing a polygraph its over.
What is wrong with having the accuser take the polygraph?
I will tell you what. These skilled “character assassins” are REALLY at the top of their subliminal game. They know JUST THE RIGHT AMERICAN PSYCHE BUTTONS TO PUSH TO DESTROY THIS GOOD MAN. Racist at the heart of it, and Alinsky-ist in nature. It is nothing short of disgusting!
Is this 2011 in America?
Or is this 1962??
They are libs, but they are worse than the Klan. They have nuanced it and and networked it just fine, for their nefarious purposes.
I couldn’t have said it better, AiT. It is absolutely disgusting.
Nothing at all! Strap them both up in separate rooms and have the same expert test them both,great idea.
WTF do Perry supporters have to with this conversation?
Not. A. Damn. Thing.
WTF do Perry supporters have to with this conversation?
Not. A. Damn. Thing.
I just can’t believe anyone with all that dirt in their background would actually run for president. Most people would assume the stories would eventually come out in the media.
Would Cain have been so stupid as to believe they would not come out? I don’t think so.
He’s innocent until proven guilty in my book.
“Mere word of a floozy”?
If someone is having a 13 year affair with a married man, wouldn’t that constitute a “floozy”? At first I didn’t believe any of the Cain sexual harassment accusations but at what point do you wonder if they are all lying? Are there any honorable men at all?
Where the white women at?
I see you haven’t learned, yet.
No, it isn't.
Do a little research on the polygraph. It's accuracy has been evaluated to be only slightly better than random chance.
You do realize that politics is now no better than the Mob. People will do or say anything to prevail. That's pretty much on both side with the possible exception of Sarah Palin.
Barney, even with a video this woman will not be believed by some of the Cain supporters.
And even if it turns out to be proven somehow, they will say it doesn’t matter.
This is freaking eye-opening about Cain supporters and their devotion and one has to wonder what the man has done to earn the devotion???
Oh, I agree about his being a RINO.
But you have to keep in mind how the left uses anything they can to destroy an opponent. If he is the nominee, the will exploit his divorce to drive a wedge between the hardcore ‘family’ conservatives. It’s not a matter of ‘if.’ They will definitely exploit that.
Remember the golden rule for the leftists: We can do what we want, but ‘you’ must adhere to a perfect code of conduct.
One has to wonder about the ‘woman is trailer park trash’ defense.
Unless she’s trashy enough to do this because she’s mad at the guy (she didn’t sound mad at all) or unless she’s trashy enough to take money for doing this (and who would pay her? - is it Obama - doubt it - he’s not afraid of Cain) then the trashy defense is without merit.
The press is digging into this woman now like a dog with a buried bone. Something will come out.
It will either disqualify the woman and vindicate Cain or it will prove that she did have an affair.
If I were a Cain supporter, I would hold my fire until something is proven either way.
The last thing I would do right now is send him more money... unless you are willing to gamble with your money.
Neither is 5:00 AM.
Given that she was already sued for being a stawker, let's see HIS text messages to her.
Yes, I’m sick of Cain supporters (some of them) blaming Perry for this.
He had nothing whatever to do with it.
Of course, Block (?) will probably come out and accuse him of it.
Turn out the lights.
Dirty little secret, according to my daughter who was high up in law enforcement for several years, defendants who pass polygraphs are seldom prosecuted.
And the vision/visual deciphering which is fairly new is good tool as well.Also a strong indication of guilt or not.
A good friend of mine administered polygraphs for years. He admitted that without a really good examiner it "can" be beat but with one it's a lot tougher.
If Cain wants to survive, truth is his only friend.
Cain raised a lot of money last time around, and while supporters were obviously donating to support the Conservative stances he holds, they were primarily coming in at a record pace at that particular time as a show of defiance to those liberals who took us for being just as dumb as their own supporters, and to show the liberals in our media just how far their influence has fallen over the years.
You don't tell us how to feel about our candidates, and you don't decide who we put our support and vote behind. Especially while showing a hysterical desperation that shows your own weakness, and complete fear that seems to be bordering on panic of Herman Cain winning the nomination. That's just an added morale booster for Conservatives to step up their work even further helping Cain get the nomination. This is equivalent in it's completely obvious and transparent goals as being as ridiculous as someone trying to use reverse psychology on your average adult, and expecting the same results you can get from most little kids.
I guess that's to be expected though when your liberal supporters are made up of people like those in the OWS protest, who are easily manipulated and controlled. I think liberals who fear Cain in the general election underestimated Conservatives based on just how easy they control their own extremely ignorant liberal base. They are learning it's not so easy when dealing with intelligent, and informed Conservatives with principle. That's why Cain's supporters here on FR seem to have all stayed on board the Cain Train, and I think the vast majority of all his supporters will do the same.
The few who let let this ploy work to demoralize them, and move their support elsewhere are just playing into the hands of the enemy who's political vision is nothing like theirs, and have manipulated them into hurting their own Conservative views from being seen implemented. Fortunately I believe the small portion who allow themselves to be used against their own interest, won't equal the Cain supporters who not only refuse to be played for ignorant, and easily manipulated puppets, but also get fired up in defeating these people by solidifying their support for Cain. That will result in increased donations, and volunteer work for his campaign to defy those who thought they would have destroyed Cain by now, and have an obvious hysterical fear of him being the Republican nominee.
Exactly altura. This woman will either pass or won’t. The hotels she says they stayed at undoubtedly have cameras. If they are seen coming or going,how do you explain that one?Not to mention cameras outside the areas of the hotels mentioned. thirteen years is a lot to cover up is she is not lying.
They have internet in Alaska now? Who da thunk it?
Yes, rodguy. Some reporter or many reporters are digging into this stuff right now.
If they can’t find anything at all after 13 years it would seem to indicate that Cain is not guilty.
Of course, both of them knew it was an illicit relationship, so some care would have been taken to keep it secret but there is always something.
All I’m saying is that the impassioned defense of Cain is premature at this time and I would hold my cards (and my money) until something more definitive comes out.
Very true, time to wait and see what transpires.
Good heavens, the problem with you is your obvious personal hatred for Cain.
You can’t spend a minute without spewing personal invective at the man.
What did he personally do to you?
If you don’t support him, thats fine, but others do and your hatred is repulsive. You can’t wait to join in with the other side when they repeatedly attack Cain with all kinds of rumors that aren’t proven.
Most people are sitting back waiting to see what plays out. I don’t tend to think this woman is being truthful because she says her reason to come out now was to back up the other two.
That was her big mistake, because it ties her in the same scheme of the Allred crowd.
You need to chill out. No matter what happens with Cain it hasn’t seemed to help Perry much.
I defend ALL the candidates against lies and rumor mongering.
Wish more folks would do the same, instead of the internal fracas we've got going on now.
It's not laughable. It's pathetic and destroying the conservative/republican brand and turning this primary season into a circus.
There isn't enough "there" there to keep supporting Cain and dismissing all accusations and accusers. Besides, I remember a time in the 1990's when we raged against the "nuts and sluts" offense.
IMHO, Herman Cain has deep trouble with policy--both foreign and domestic--and with the truth.
He needs to go home, take care of his health and spend his book proceeds on his deeply wounded wife.
Are you too young to remember the 1992 campaign and a fellow named William Jefferson Clinton . . .
This is ridiculous. Where do they find these women?......................................... $$$$$$$$$ buys all.
a : a mode of satirical wit depending for its effect on bitter, caustic, and often ironic language that is usually directed against an individual
I don’t have a dog in this fight as I’m north of the border and not American. I am certainly not a fan of Romney, but I have been a student of American politics long enough to know that there is a double standard when it comes to politicians involved in inappropriate personal relationships. While a Clinton could survive a scandal because of undying media support, a Republican cannot. And even lesser light Democrats have been forced out of office (how soon we forget the sad tale of Weiner’s weiner). But it’s not just the media. Conservatives expect a higher standard of conduct from their candidates. To conservatives, family, loyalty and integrity isn’t just a convenient campaign slogan - it’s how most of us strive to live. Even if we fall short of the ideal, we don’t stop believing in the ideal. When faced with a candidate who has serious character flaws, our instinct is not just to sweep it under the carpet. We want to get the facts before passing judgment.
With respect to Cain, I don’t know yet whether there’s real substance to any of the allegations. There is, however, a need to get the truth about the man before anointing him as the nominee. If there is truth in the latest allegation then it is not something that I would accept in a nominee, particularly since it isn’t some incident from the distant past. Same goes for Gingrich’s character.
Like it or not, Romney (so far) has avoided the appearance of personal character flaws which have haunted Cain and Gingrich. Perry may also benefit from being seen as a person with personal integrity. I think Gingrich has put enough distance between his divorce so that conservatives were willing to take a second look, but they are not enthusiastic. His health care and immigration comments are giving conservatives cause for concern and he doesn’t have the political capital to be given a pass.
In a word, your situation is a mess. Either the conservative primary voters coalesce around an imperfect conservative candidate such as Perry, or they’ll be forced to accept a competent RINO like Romney.
“A real conservative would never, ever post those things about our Herm.”
It was a sarcastic remark. Not meant to be taken literally.
I don't expect the people that use them to claim otherwise.
Sorry I read every article.
When Cain says he is “trying to help her financially” and them the cult member ATTACK her because of financial issues, your defense falls due to it’s own failure.
Apparently Cain didn’t do much to help her financial situation. Cain sure has questionable judgement in women, doesn’t he?
Amazing how the purist all of a sudden drop their character issues when the Cult leader is shown to be a clay footed idol.
The only ones on FR that are betraying Conservative Values are the Cain and Newt supporters.
OH! OK. Thanks! ;)
Perry before Romney any day!!!!! Perry is coming out of his Texas
comfort zone and Newt will be destroyed by the press he is not electable
In my opinion. We must get rid of Obama or our country will never be the
same I for one am terrified of another term and no worries about reelection!!!! Our president is a Marxist I believe this with my heart and
“Cain is my guy all the way. Anyone who stikes this much fear in the heart of my enemy, gets my vote.”
So says you.
I swear I will sit this election cycle out if another RINO is nominated.
I don’t like Romney, I don’t like Perry and Newt is just another gray-haired GOP elitist.
S**w it - I’m out.
I totally agree with you.
The only problem is: third Party candidates never win.
I do not like Romney, I do not want another President from Texas and Newt is just another old GOP elitist.
Awww, the heck with it — I’ll sit this one out.
The problem is that Perry has some serious political land mines in his baggage, in regards to his actions as Texas governor.
Well said. We need to thin the herd of at least five "candidates" so rational voters can make an informed decision.
The sideshows (and there are several going on) need to shelved.
(IMHO, of course :) )
This one concerns me because it is now going beyond harassment.
I like Cain and have been supporting him up to now, but I just do not know what to do here.
I don’t like anybody else except maybe could stand Newt. But, he has his own problems.
It gets concerning when there are this many stories. A couple can be false, but at some point, there has to be some truth.
I saw a documentary on the subject. It had a guy who was a polygraph administer for the police for decades. He said that the polygraph is 100% BS and is just used to scare people into confessions. It reads heart rates to see if people are getting nervous and gives the cops avenues to travel down in further questioning. There were a string of test subjects that the guy said he could get to pass a poly no matter what and he did. Apparently you can control all of this by clenching you butt cheeks a certain way during base line questions that will throw the hole test off and give the cops nothing to work with.
He said he would take a poly.
He needs to put up here and do it.
Not saying I believe this woman, but it is getting harder and harder to believe Cain.
CNBC reporting that Cain’s campaign manager says Cain is reassesing his campaign now.
Well, unless he drops out. Geez what a revolting development. It’s now being reported that he’s evaluation whether to stay in the race or not.
