Cain Denies New Allegations, as Woman Claims They Had 13-Year Affair
FOX News ^ | 11-28-11 | FOX News

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."

And let’s not forget Newt, the stellar of moral fiber that he is!

If 0bama was really behind this, the time to play this card is AFTER he was nominated.

Not if they are trying to steer lesser candidates to the top for a nomination win. Obummer and the Chicago machine would be giddy high to have Mittens as their opponent. It would split the base and he is a weak 25% candidate.

Get ready to see stuff on "Wall Street Romney" nonstop if he wins. The Occupy drones will eat it up. Cain would be a much harder sell on being a greedy Capitalist, which is where the Regime is going to take this election.

Let me guess: someone paid Ms. White to come forward and its just a coincidence that like Ms. Bialek, she is unemployed and has kids to support.

Yeah sure and I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you!

Sadly, the drive-by hits will continue until Cain is nominated.

Cain is not going to win the nomination. These stories now amount to kicking a dead horse. It has become apparent that Herman doesn't have the policy knowledge for the job anyway. That alone has been sinking him, not the bimbo eruptions.

Cain may deny it, but his attorney did anything but:

I agree, and Cain's lawyer is one of the best. The lawyer is pretty much admitting it. Cain is toast.

Wake up. From the article.

“She says the physical relationship ended about eight months ago, right before Cain announced he was running for president. But the communication did not. When we asked for any corroborating evidence, she pointed us to her cell phone contacts. One name: Herman Cain.

She showed us some of her cell phone bills that included 61 phone calls or text messages to or from a number starting with 678. She says it is Herman Cain’s private cell phone. The calls were made during four different months— calls or texts made as early as 4:26 in the early morning, and as late as 7:52 at night. The latest were in September of this year.

“We’ve never worked together,” said White. “And I can’t imagine someone phoning or texting me for the last two and a half years, just because.”

We texted the number and Herman Cain called us back. He told us he “knew Ginger White” but said these are “more false allegations.” He said she had his number because he was “trying to help her financially.”

I’d wonder if he can explain all of that to his wife.
I really don’t care about who he sleeps with, but too many cainiacs can’t stop blasting Newt for his affairs.

Oh and what they will vote for Gingrich a notorious cheater?

If Cain goes down, then Obama gets another 4 years.

Gingrich does not appeal to the Independents. Plus the media and press have a lot on Gingrich and Romney.

My guess is that if Romney or Gingrich get the nomination, then you will see a third Party candidate.

Info coming out about Ginger White:

She has a court order against her for threatening to sue a fellow business women for defamation of character and for harassing the business woman with phone calls and text messages. The only records that this woman has are phone records where she called Herman Cain’s phone 60+ times in the past year or so. This woman was evicted two weeks ago and is a single mother of two.

IF it is true... I’m not making light of adultery but consider if this was true, Cain’s wife would have divorced him years ago. A woman usually knows if a man is having an affair. This is not something you can hide from the wife and kids.

My conservative former representative from the Newt years loathed the man. Said he was not trustworthy and completely devoid of any leadership skills. His nomination would be a disaster.

phleeeze FR is the Hermy Cain web site. Only pro Cain articles get sidebar. Newt and Cain are the only ones the mods give that honor to.

The Cain supporters are nasty and just as vile as their candidate.

To claim there was no relationship when CAIN told the station he was trying to help her FINANCIALLY..(ofcourse maybe his payoff to keep her mouth shut was to low)

I mean really he thinks the American people are FOOLS.

I doubt it. This is his past catching up with him. She has emails, phone records, and if she's telling the truth, very shortly the press will have copies of hotel records and restaurant receipts or credit card receipts.

Stick a fork in Herman, he's done. Time to move on.

“To claim there was no relationship when CAIN told the station he was trying to help her FINANCIALLY”

That’s not evidence of an affair, sorry. :)

Reasonable doubt would infer that they did know each other and kept in touch, but this isn’t sufficient evidence to show that he did, in fact, commit adultery.

Given that it’s been 13 years, makes me question why now? Why not earlier? He did run in GA. This raises reasonable doubt that the relationship such as it was was anything more than friendship.

Sorry marty, this dog won’t hunt.

Going on the defensive with flat denials hasn’t helped him. He needs to go on the offense and demand proof and specifics that can be verified or discredited.

You are dead on here. For the last couple months, Cain has flubbed an answer in an interview or just totally locked up like in the Newt/Cain debate at least once a week. If he was solid on the simple foreign policy stuff, more people would have given him the benefit of the doubt on this crap. Having troubles on two fronts just makes people worry about his over all competence. Especially with him not having any prior Gov't experience.

This is from Fox 5: Before our interview, we checked into Ginger White’s background. We found she filed a sexual harassment claim against an employer in 2001. That case was settled.

We also found a bankruptcy filing nearly 23 years ago in Kentucky, and a number of eviction notices here in DeKalb County over the past six years. The most recent happened this month.

Ms. White says she has been unemployed, and she is a single mom with two kids struggling to make ends meet.

“We also found a lawsuit filed by a former business partner, Kimberly Vay, who once sought a “stalking temporary protective order” against Ms. White for “repeated e-mails/texts threatening lawsuit and defamation of character.” The case was dismissed; but was followed by a libel lawsuit against Ms. White. A judge entered an order in favor of Kimberly Vay because Ms. White failed to respond to the lawsuit.

Really?

Apparently Conservative doesn’t apply anymore. See link:
conservative is someone who adheres to principles of personal responsibility, moral values, and limited government, agreeing with George Washington’s Farewell Address that “religion and morality are indispensable supports” to political prosperity.[1][2]

Former President Ronald Reagan said, “The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom.”[3]
Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States, is the epitome of American conservatism.

The sine qua non of a conservative is someone who rises above his personal self-interest and promotes moral and economic values beneficial to all. Alternatively, a conservative is willing to learn and advocate the insights of economics and the morality of the Bible for the benefit of all, recognizing that the Bible is the most logical book ever written. Specifically, conservatives seek or support:

* Limited government and balanced budgets
* Capitalism and free markets
* Classroom prayer
* Prohibition of abortion and respect for human life
* Abstinence education
* Traditional marriage, not same-sex marriage
* Respect for differences between men and women, boys and girls
* Laws against pornography
* The Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms
* Economic allocative efficiency (as opposed to popular equity)
* The death penalty
* Parental control of education (parental rights)
* Private medical care and retirement plans
* Canceling failed social support programs
* No world government
* Enforcement of current laws regarding immigration
* Respect for our military ... past and present
* Rejection of junk science such as evolution and global warming
* Minimal Taxation
* Federalism (Separation of powers among the National, State and Local governments)
* Favoring states’ rights over federal power, while accepting the Constitutional role of the federal government
* A strong national defense
* An Originalist interpretation of the Constitution

“There. Just trying to even up the playing field.”

Yes, and Obama and Biden both had long term relationships with that woman who was found to be a Russian Spy (Anna Chapman), and both gave her lots and lots of state secrets while engaged in this affair. That's why she was flagged and wound up being sent back to Russia - she knew too much about Obama and Biden.

No - she could grab a card and have someone forge his writing. Only way to prove it is for her to release mobile phone text messages or something from Herman that can't be disputed. I doubt she has that. What she has is a trail of a lot of calls to/from Herman. While it doesn't prove anything it doesn't look good for Cain. Defending himself against 5 women is not a good place for Cain to be.

You nailed it, show me proof or STHU! It is so obvious that they are attacking Mr Cain with everything they have because they want him gone. To not see this, you have to be an idiot or complicit. They fear Mr Cain, as well they should. This is the Chicago Way, look it up. The only question is if we conservatives fold. Cain is the ONLY person who can stop Obama and that is why the Secret Service is protecting him as we speak. If the anti conservatives on this site were real conservatives and believed these stories about Mr Cain, they would wait for proof but they are not and will not. They should move back to the Chicago sewer where they came from.

Cain never harassed her or treated her poorly, though their physical relationship ended eight months ago, just before Cain announced his candidacy for president, White said. She provided some text messages and phone bills as documentation of her contact with Cain.

The station also released a statement from Cain's attorney, Lin Wood, who said the allegations of "private, alleged consensual conduct between adults" is not "not a proper subject of inquiry by the media or the public."

Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2011/11/28/cain-denies-new-allegations-as-woman-claims-had-13-year-affair/#ixzz1f39EppYH

If she has released texts and phone bills as the above quote from the article suggests, and if the campaign's defense is "consensual relationship", then one has to wonder if this is an attempt at innoculation or a defense?

I'm going to suggest that Cain is done in Iowa and New Hampshire as America sorts out how to deal with new, private information that's being revealed. The voting public won't have this sorted out by then.

They've had decades to sort out the Gingrich affairs.

Cain's stuff, however, is raw and new, and who knows what else will pop up.
