Cain: Wife didn't know about friendship, ‘financial assistance' to Ginger White
The Union Leader ^ | Thursday December 1, 2011

Posted on 12/01/2011 6:41:41 PM PST by Bigtigermike

MANCHESTER - Herman Cain acknowledged Thursday that he repeatedly gave Ginger White money to help her with "month-to-month bills and expenses" without telling his wife of more than 40 years.

In fact, the embattled presidential candidate said, his wife, Gloria, "did not know that we were friends until she (White) came out with this story" alleging that the two had a 13-year extramarital affair.

[....]

Cain also stated clearly for the first time that as a result of the constant controversy he has been facing, he is considering getting out of the presidential race.

Asked whether leaving the race is one of the options he is currently assessing, Cain said, “Yes, it is an option.” Regarding his decision, he said, "You will know by next week" as he takes the weekend to reassess where he stands in the campaign.

More knee jerking. Has anyone bothered asking Mrs. Cain if she gives a flying fig?

Oh my. That is bad news in all sorts of ways. I am saddened. Seems like the smear merchants just might have finished him off. Being generous isn’t his crime. Leaving the appearance of sleaze in his wake is all I can find wrong here. But it’s probably enough. I DO hope I am wrong. We’ll just wait and see. Now there isn’t anyone I like left standing.

I don’t understand why he keeps jumping back and forth between “no way I’m quitting” and “I am considering quitting”. Half the threads here, if you posted this quote from Cain and called it your own, you’d be called a RINO racist and told you were an idiot for not reading the article.

At least I now have the answer to a question I asked yesterday that nobody could answer — Cain’s wife did NOT know White.

And, like a person who likes to bash anyone who isn’t your candidate, he also said he has talked to Gloria. She knows, she understands and she forgives. So, what is the big deal?

He’s toast. If he admits to paying a woman who is not a family member several times what can we assume he was getting in return for those payments? Housekeeping?

And wifey didn’t know?

If he did nothing wrong, it sure as hell doesn’t look that way.

A married mad for years was helping a female pay her month to month bills.

Cain said he’s going to meet his wife tomorrow to discuss the situation and tells us that he will let us know by next week what his plans are. What does that tells you? Any spouse that gives money to another opposite sex without the other knowing for years is in deep dodo

I don’t understand why he keeps jumping back and forth between “no way I’m quitting” and “I am considering quitting”.

This is the first time I've seen Cain say that he is considering resigning from the race.

Perhaps you can document this so-called "jumping back and forth" that you claim.

Cain just told Hannity the world will know his decision before Monday — after he talks it over with his wife. I don’t care one whit if Cain dawdled with any of these women. I just wish he would go home and get some rest.

Oh come on. You honestly buy that he was just giving this woman money and communicating with her at all hours of the day and night just to help her out while keeping this from his wife for 13 years?

Puhleeze I don’t know too many women who would believe their husbands if the circumstances were similar. Sorry but that dawg don’t hunt.

I don't get it... if you wanted to pay to be some girls sugar daddy... why would you pay such an ugly one? there are tons of smoking hot girls that would do anything if you paid their bills.

That girl is so ugly, even at 2am with beer goggles I wouldn't touch her.

Cain has to go home and repair his marriage even if he didn’t have a physical relationship with White. He hid something from his wife for a long time

You’re frothing like a starving pit bull over a steak just beyond his chain. It’s way over the top and out of proportion. A good provocateur should be a little more subtle.

So then who IS your candidate?

This was an outstanding interview - and the focus was largely THE ECONOMY. I highly suggest people listen to it, rather than focus on what the liberals WANT you to focus on.

He also stated in the interview with Hannity that there are other people she did not know about whom he was giving money to. It isn’t like Cain isn’t loaded. A 13 year “affair” would have some actual evidence. So far, there is nothing except for her accusation.

Palin had the truest conservative instincts, but was a bit lacking in other regards — not QUITE a combo Einstein/Newton like her bots said. Romney is the WORST, 1/100th better than the kenyan. Can I vote for Phil Gramm or Fred Thompson?

As Neocon1984 already corrected stated, the poster in question is a troll, specifically a troll who (by his own admission) is a federal parasite at the EPA who doesn't do much work, but sure spends a lot of taxpayer money.

So consider the source of this, I've already hit the abuse button and will do so again.

I didn't realize the OWS people were the only ones unemployed, perhaps he didn't either.

I don't listen to the media but, obviously, you do.

Herman Cain acknowledged Thursday that he repeatedly gave Ginger White money to help her with "month-to-month bills and expenses" without telling his wife of more than 40 years.

Almost as stupid an idea as imposing a national sales tax on top of the income tax.

“Not only didn’t his wife not know about the financial assistance, he said, but she also “did not know we were friends until she (White) came out with this story.”

I doesn’t matter how right Cain is on the issues if he’s untrustworthy. Cain’s major appeal for me was his supposed integrity and his Christian witness. That’s gone now.
