Cain accuser says he's not fit to be president
The Hill ^ | November 30, 2011 | Jonathan Easley

Posted on 11/30/2011 5:37:30 AM PST by maggief

In what could be a devastating blow to Herman Cain’s Republican presidential bid, Atlanta businesswoman Ginger White gave an interview to Good Morning America on Wednesday in which she divulged new details of her alleged 13-year-long affair with the candidate and panned Cain's suitability to be president.

“I can’t make this up,” White said. “And frankly speaking, I wouldn’t want to make this up.”

White said that Cain took her to a Mike Tyson-Evander Holyfield boxing match in the late 1990s, and said that the former president of the National Restaurant Association had given her money for “the last two and a half years consistently,” but that the money was “not sex for cash.”

White had previously alleged that Cain would fly her across the country and lavish her with gifts and expensive dinners. Cain denied the story, although White provided Fox 5 Atlanta, which broke her story, with phone and text-messaging records that detail dozens of correspondences — some very late at night — between White and Cain.

Cain claims White is looking to take advantage of their friendship for personal gain.

“I’m not sure what’s going on in his head right now,” White responded on Wednesday. “But it’s unfortunate that any of this is going on.”

White was asked if she thought Cain was fit to be president. “In my opinion, no I do not,” she said.

“I honestly do not think that he is, in my opinion, would make a good president, as far as I’m concerned. My views are different from his views, but at the end of the day this is not political – this is absolutely not political and I’ve never tried to make it out to be that,” said White.

This uh, tramp, who is telling the world about having a supposed affair with a married man for 13 years while taking money from him and being treated to the high life who has a record of lawsuits and not paying her bills, IS declaring Herman Cain, who she does not agree with politically, as being unfit for office?

There is something extremely idiotic and wrong here. LOL

So a single mother, in financial trouble, making accusations of sleeping with a married man has suddenly become a pundit with credentials good enough to determine who is and is not qualified to be President.....her creds are so good that her thoughts become a HEADLINE for a NEWS STORY??????

These folks are a JOKE!

“not sex for cash.”

When one has to say "not sex for cash", it's sex for cash.

If it was love, she would have demanded Cain divorce and marry her after the 1st year.

But if true, she as happy with the 'Pay for Play' arrangement. ...for 13 years.

The opposite of that is why or what did Cain see/like in such a person that he’d send support her way?

Like it or not, this recent Cain accuser is getting more than twice the press than the other 4 have.

She is giving a compelling case history in all the interviews she is being asked to do. Considering the trend, as well as the other women involved, Cain needs to do the right thing and drop out. The more he tries to deny this, the worse it will get for him.

The common denominator in Cain’s accusers are...

They all have a history of being:

1. Stalkers.
2. Lazy, blood sucking, gold diggers.
3. Legal problems.
4. Government jobs.
5. DemonRATS!

Either Cain is the nicest guy on the planet, or a damn fool, and a tool. He forgot that good guys finish last.

Once again, we are witness to how the left operates to defeat their opposition, and gain evil power. It’s so “textbook”, it could be a degree program. Too bad, so sad. Our Nation losses again.

I’m not a Cain supporter but,

let’s see the alleged plane tickets he purchased and the content of the text messages, etc.

A phone bill with numbers on it is not evidence of an affair.

The book signings, if anything, prove it wasn’t a sexual relationship.

So far, this is crap.

"I honestly do not think that he is, in my opinion, would make a good president"

This is from a woman who publicly claims that for years she had sexual relations with a married man and she accepted financial benefits from him, and, thus, whose children could be played by actors in some TV sitcom, “My Slut-Mother, the Whore” (not to be confused with other current TV sitcoms featuring similar behavior).

This isn’t about to go away until it is settled one way or the other. If it isn’t settled it will return.

How can she prove he did and how can he prove he didn’t that is going to be the question.

We still have Larry Sinclair swearing he had sex with Obama, but he cannot prove it.

Leaving a story like this hanging is bad. It will just keep coming up.

Do you honestly think that he even now has a remote chance of winning after all that has happened lately? Forget the women, that factor alone is not the reason he has tanked in the polls.

Cain is simply not Presidential. And it shows.

He already admitted he tried to help her out financially. Did she make ANY assertion that sexual activity was involved?

NO!

This (as I said yesterday) is an attempt to cash in on Cain, paying her overdue bills with money from appearances on Liberal Talk Shows, and trying to knock out a Conservative Candidate with smears that have no basis in fact, and are overblown by the State-Run-Media as always.

Did he get orally serviced by subordinates, while Taxpayers were footing the bill?

We had Liberal media women "wishing they were Monica", and no smears were done then....

Scenario 1.) She's a charlatan who sold her soul to the DNC for some cash and notoriety.

Scenario 2.) She's a harlot who only developed a conscience after she was dumped for a Presidential campaign.

Either way, I don't see a qualification to tell the Country who is fit to be President.

I stand by Herman Cain because: he is not a part of the entrenched elite political class; because his enemies are my enemies(and, you should consider them yours too if you are interested in personal liberty); because it’s just about his personal life; because the people don’t really care about this issue/s; because it’s just about sex; because his wife is on his side and stands up for him; because it’s just about sex, sex, sex(and everybody needs a little sex in his/her life); and, the people are just not interested except those who are trying to destroy Herman Cain; and, because everybody does it. Besides, it’s much the same as Bill Clinton got away with and is still around to impose on our lives.

By this, do you mean that anytime a conservative is being destroyed by the MSM, unless they prove to us all exactly when they stopped beating their wife they aren't presidential?

If you haven't learned by now that the MO of the MSM is to provide a false drumbeat of accusation against any candidate they fear, then you haven't been paying attention. It's the way they play the game, and for you (if you are really a conservative) not to have learned that is shameful.

And....if it is all true, it is still crap. The media plays a double standard every time when it comes to human nature and Dems vs Reps, not that I am condoning infidelity.

JFK, Bill Clinton, Barney Frank, Edwards, etc were never vetted SO rigorously as Herman Cain is now. The Democrat’s never fear that their leftist Alfa-Politicians can be taken out due to talk of infidelity, deviance,etc be it real or imagined. Yet this is our Achilles heel and a key tool that allows the media and the Democrats to chose our nominee’s. I am sure countless otherwise able Libertarian/Rightish Alpa’s never run for office due to remote female problems.

In this case, the attorney of the accuser claims they have text messages between them to prove the accuser's testimony. The accuser herself, is being treated as credible and is also a very good interviewer.

Cain is in deep trouble with this one. His campaign is over. Only he refuses to believe it.
