Herman Cain to meet with wife as Ginger White apologizes
LA Times ^ | 12/02/2011 | James Oliphant

Posted on 12/02/2011 8:52:20 AM PST by Responsibility2nd

Herman Cain has a critical summit meeting Friday with a house leader. His house.

Cain is decamping back to Georgia for a sit-down with wife Gloria over the subject of Ginger White, the Atlanta woman who claims she was Cain’s mistress for over a decade, and he said the two will discuss the future of his struggling presidential campaign.

Cain is slated to open his national campaign headquarters in Atlanta on Saturday and, at least as of now, is expected to go through with it. But the lease had better be month-to-month.

White, appearing on MSNBC Thursday night, apologized to Gloria Cain and Cain’s children. (Watch video below.)

"I am not a cold-hearted person. I am a mother of two kids. And of course my heart bleeds for this woman because I am a woman and being in a situation like this cannot be fun," she said. "And I am deeply, deeply sorry if I have caused any hurt to her and to his kids, to his family. That was not my intention. I never wanted to hurt anyone and I'm deeply sorry. I am very sorry.”

Herman needs to sue for damages..WHATEVER they are.

How about all of the moneys spent on his Presidential campaign?

The damage is done. How big was the check, Ginger?

If you watched the entire video you would know the reason she came forward was because the media told her they were ready to reveal all.

Which media? Which reporters? Is she claiming they got her financial and call records without her permission? I'm finding that hard to believe.

I agree but so the media was going to print it - I would say he’s a friend and leave it at that. Here she is on another show talking more about it. She could have just as well ignored the media and not granted an interview. Let the media do what they want from the ‘leaks’ they received but I’d never utter a word to them.

"I am not a cold-hearted person."

Then why go public? If what you are saying it true, all Herman ever did to you was to offer emotional and financial support. He helped you. And your response is to stab him in the back for absolutely no reason? I don't buy it. Whatever the facts are she is a golddigger. As her history clearly shows. Judas probably thought he was "not a cold-harted person" too.

“Sorry, Ginger. This rings extremely hollow.”

Did you watch? It rang extremely true to me. She looks and sounds like someone who would just about rather be shot than be in this position. I read duress. Someone is holding something over her head.

“I am a mother of two” came out especially strained to me.

Ah,this is an old, old question. If God knew a trillion trillion years ago the fate of ever human, every ant, and every neuron, then how can there be free will? More to the point, what could possibly be the point of existing and why would God ever go through the motions of creation in the first place? Big questions that can bother the mind greatly.

I can't believe everybody is blaming the woman...like Herman Cain had nothing to do with it! I takes two to tango!!!

He is just sorry he got caught! If he isn't guilty of the sin why does he need to have a meeting with his wife?

Does anybody believe that this is the only woman he had on the side?

Everything said about the woman fits Herman Cain as well!

I don’t recommend you watch either.

She said she never meant to hurt anyone.

Really???

What on EARTH did she think was going to happen here?????

In the first interview I heard with her attorney, he said she had hoped to just tell her side of this and it would be done with.

HOW NAIVE CAN YOU BE ??????????????

Some info from the interview with White:

The financial support was over the last 2.5 years.
Always in cash, so no records.
Help towards household expenses.
Sexual affair trailed off at the same time - 2.5 years.
Not love.
Just sex.
They met at a Black Leadership conference (or something like that).
She has different political views than Cain, “but this isn’t political.” (Really? What do you call it?)
Should he drop out of the race? She said that wasn’t her call, it was up to Cain and his family to decide.

Etc.

I hate evil people. And yes she is one. Sweep what under the rug, her phone bill? What bs.

You can't win on this one, friend. If she was an "evil person" as you allege, what business did Cain have associating with her (and having frequent contact with - see below) over a 13-year period?

The phone records are BS? This according to the LA Times story, which Cain or his lawyer have not disputed:

"Wood on Thursday released cellphone billing records showing that Cain and White called each other 10 times the past six months and exchanged over 200 text messages."

That's 35 text/phone calls a month - or an average of more than one a day.

LOL - just helping out a woman he met at a speaking engagement 13 years ago...

It may be your reality. It is not mine. The problem you have—yes you—is that thinking Tea Party conservatives do not trust RINOs like Gingrich, Perry or Romney to fix and secure the country.

I’d prefer a conservative candidate without sexual baggage. But I’ll take Cain over the RINO clowns even if any of the “gotcha” nonsense sticks. I’ve been donating to Cain and will continue to do so.

I must admit you had me going with the ninth bimbo who claims she had a 13-year affair with Cain. But I got over that. Haven’t you RINObots been telling us naive purists we had to be realistic. There is no perfect candidate. Well, I’m being realistic. I’l take Cain warts and all.

I love it when stupid arguments circle back on themselves. Don’t you?

Maybe having 2 brains somehow explains why he keeps adding an extra letter "L" to the word counseling everytime he posts it on FR, which is several times per day. He hears each brain adding its own "L", but one of them is really saying "Get the "L" outta there."

So what? The proper response to all of that is “No Comment.”

Or maybe, just maybe, she could have called Herman Cain and given him a heads’ up about it, since White claims (and he confirms) that he helped her financially for 2.5 years.

But noooooo.... Instead, White lead Cain right into a media trap, by giving the media his cell number so they can text him directly.

She’s a user, and a whore. She says it wasn’t sex for money, but that’s exactly what it was. Sex for a trip to Vegas. Sex for a trip to here or there. Sex for a fun night out on the town. Sex for 2.5 years of financial support. That’s what dating is, that’s what this was (if the sex did actually happen).

Exactly. This blind, unquestioning allegiance to "our guy" borders on pathetic.

The guy may be guilty and he may have been framed. We don't know yet (although I have my strong suspicions). But the knee-jerk dismissals of the allegations and swarmy attempts to justify what is clearly suspicious behavior is in itself inexcusable.

“I am a mother of two” came out especially strained to me.

When she first came forward, she said this about herself:

White admits she has struggled as a single mother, but added that her financial woes shouldn’t define her.

“I don’t 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.”

I wonder if somebody made her an offer she couldn't refuse to keep that roof over her head.

You don’t text much, right?

I just checked my texts for the month, and my billing cycle ends today. I’ve used 744 texts this month.

And it’s never “one a day” when you text. You are billed for the outgoing and the incoming text. So if White initiates a text, and it takes up 3 screens, that is 3 texts. Cain responds, that’s 4 texts. She replies with 2 more texts, that’s 6 texts. Cain responds, that’s 7. They each say “goodbye”, that’s 9 texts. And that is one very short text conversation, but it took 9 texts.

The actual record was:

October: 37 texts and 1 phone call
November: 46 texts and 0 phone calls

That could have been checking in once a week, for a 5-text back and forth (totalling 10 texts per contact).

Nothing about it says they had contact every day.

If it’s true, then it says he’s a John.

It says he’s just like at least 50% of the men out there.

Believe me, fidelity is pretty darn uncommon.

Men are way too easily manipulated by women, especially when it comes to sex and money.

Ginger White should have kept her mouth shut.

If it is true that she and Mr. Cain had an affair of any length, she should have asked God to forgive her and then asked Cain to forgive her for her part in the affair. She should NOT have gone public with a very private matter. It would then be up to Cain to make it right with his wife.
