Cain: Wife didn't know about friendship, ‘financial assistance' to Ginger White
Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is questioned by New Hampshire Union Leader publisher Joe McQuaid in Manchester Thursday. David Lane
Cain isn’t the only one that is Naive.
I wonder how his “reassessment” is going.
Fair point. I’m 20 years his junior. Maybe it’s a generational thing. But it’s all a moot point now. The damage has been done. And if it was all completely innocent and this has been a character assassination, I’m sorry for HC.
>> Yeah. I’m thinking there were lots of $500 payments - always following a couple hours time with Ginger.
It’s possible that’s why, in 13 years of financial aid, she could never get back on her feet... cause whenever Herman came calling, there she was on her back again. :-)
I don’t. He brought this on himself and its better we find this out now. Imagine he got the nomination and this all came out a few weeks before the GE?
Ms White is interviewing Stephanopolis very soon and should hit the big time. You can also be guaranteed that this admission will also accompany the interview.
So much for Cain’s attack dog attorney shutting this one down.....
My husband would never give any person money on a monthly basis without telling me.
Sure, he’d give a cup of coffee to a homeless guy, or give $25 to United Way (ugh) at work.
But not sending her regular stipends over several months, as seems to be the case here.
Now, we are not millionaires. Maybe their marriage is different. But it doesn’t seem normal to me.
—Cain is now down to 6% in Florida. It is 50% Gingrich, 19% Romney, 6% Cain.—
Well, it seems like that just isn’t a fear he needs to have.
Don’t go there, one John Edwards is enough.....
“Reassessment” Code word for “How can we turn this one around into several million more in donations?
No it doesn't . Cain told Cavuto he had helped many people with grocery and rent money. I doubt he told his wife about each and every one.
Or maybe Herman has a heart and decided to take care of someone less fortunate. You know, like Christian person would do.
It’s been reported that White has one child. I wonder how old the child is??
I was putting fuel in my truck the other day and some young lady came up and said she had run out of gas and needed some fuel, I gave her a few bucks, but we did not have sex on the fuel island. Guess I must be some sort of pervert.
Bridge for sale.........
You’re missing the point. On purpose - I believe.
FTA: Cain said that in retrospect he should have told his wife about his friendship with White, “but retrospect doesn’t necessarily change what’s going on now.”
Cain KNEW he shoulda told the missues. Scratch that. Cain KNEW he shoulda never had that sorty of “friendship” in the first place.
I understand what you are saying about being generous and giving money only to have it backfire. I do. Been there - done that. But using Cain’s own words here....
In “retrospect”... he shoulda not done it.
Did he text all those people at 4am as well over 13 years?
If he gave a person in need a $20 or even a $100 I doubt if he would miss it or think he had to report it to Momma...
Mrs Cain probably gives money here and there to good causes to that Herman doesnt demand to know about..
Its called trust...
He knows Gloria wont give money to Planned Parenthood behind his back..
She trusts him to not be sponsoring girlfriends”
I would never give $20 to anyone (other than our daughter) without mrs riverdawg’s knowledge. We can certainly afford to give money to help people, and we do, but we keep each other informed about such transfers and almost always discuss them in advance.
It's called a marriage ...
The crime is the stupidity! What stupidity I suppose depends on how enamered one is with “their” candidate.
Sounds like the stupidity was that any of all this was never going to surface.
Even Ron Paul has some really great ideas, but he sure as heck ain’t going to get the nom, same here.
Hope the next Pres, makes him Fed Chairman or something similar, but far as GOP Nom, that train has left the station.
At this point i would not be surprised if a porn film surfaces with Herm in it.
“I was putting fuel in my truck the other day and some young lady came up and said she had run out of gas and need some fuel, I gave her a few bucks, but we did not have sex on the fuel island. Guess I must be some sort of pervert.”
Not a good analogy. She remained a stranger to you, there wasn’t ongoing communication, it was done in public, it was a one time thing.
“Brace yourself for the incoming flood of apologies and gee, maybe you were right notes.”
First of all, my apologies to any and all who may have thought I questioned their veracity or integrity.
I was one who argued forcefully on Herman’s behalf on this and other matters of contention. Until this article, I had seen nothing verifiable that indicated whether Mr Cain’s wife knew or not. In fact there were statements attributed to Cain’s campaign staff posted on FR which indicated his wife and family did know. It is my nature to believe in the honor of a candidate I back unless something proves that this is not the case. Having said that I must admit I am disappointed in Mr Cain and will have to reconsider my support for him.
If you imagine that for a wife, being "grown up" means not expecting your husband to be accountable for his actions, you are sorely mistaken. Quite the contrary: having an "adult" and "mature" marriage relationship means that both spouses are accountable to each other - and are able to trust each other because they are "transparent" with each other.
The fact that you have not been "transparent" with your wife regarding giving money to "younger women" is certainly nothing to boast about, and may have hurt her more than you realize.
it isn't what our life was about...
I suspect the truth is that it isn't what YOUR life was about. Though you offer it as some kind of justification for Cain's actions (as well as your own), the truth is that we cause hurt and disappointment if we do not "honor" our spouse by being "transparent" in all that we do.
[Flame away - but what would be really interesting would be for you to run what I've said by your wife and include her response in your reply]
No he died many years before the text, but he was from Memphis.
You said, “Busted. I don’t care how “innocent” the situation is. If your wife ain’t in the loop on something like this....”
Let me finish that thought for you, you know she wouldn’t like it or approve and you have reason for her not to know about it because you may just be expecting something other than thank you and want to keep that option open on the side.
Bad news for Herman, good news for us to find out sooner than later.
And he never considered this a problem lurking in the wings?
Life is tough, it is tougher when you are stupid.
Changing your support for Mr Cain was never our intent. Looking at the reality of who and what Cain was from the start is what seemed to escape so many who support him so blindly. And they sent him money. Lots of it, based on not much at all. Really!.......Not much at all, from the start.
I just am thankful this is all coming out now rather than later.
Another electoral disaster averted. Herman Cain is a real idiot to have run knowing this was all out there and not telling his wife beforehand.
LOL..Good one there.
I’m a Cain supporter but I have to admit that made me laugh.
I am A B O I like Cain, but these things are a disaster in our quest to defeat obama.
Not a good analogy. She remained a stranger to you, there wasnt ongoing communication, it was done in public, it was a one time thing.
Excellent rejoinder. I am frankly amazed to see how people can refuse to admit the obvious in their determination to make light of indiscrete behavior.
“At best he’s a moron”
Yep. So far it looks to be the whole ‘13-year affair’ thing is falling by the wayside, as Ms. White can’t seem to verify any of that stuff. Seems like the typical pattern of all the other ladies - make outrageous claims to get the headline and no following proof.
What she only seems to have is phone records from this fall, unless I’m confused about the timeline, that mostly looks like she was initiating and he responding. It makes this really smell like a setup.
Point is he fell for it. Didn’t tell his wife. Cavalier in the middle of a Presidential campaign where he is the frontrunner. Not thinking of the consequences of his actions.
That’s as bothersome as if he actually did something, which I’m not sure he did. I truly don’t get it.
You finished my thought perfectly.
Now. If this was a one time gift - no problem. But if this acquaintance developed into a friendship and more money was given over 13 years...
That is a problem. As the whole world now sees.
I disagree. Cain is a very wealthy man. If I was giving an amount that would put a dent in our checking account (like help with rent), I’d have to explain myself. But peeling off a couple of bills off a roll of 100’s isnt much of a big deal to a millionaire. If I was a rich person I’d love to be able to give very large tips to service people and such, so long as it didn’t have a real effect on my finances.
I agree...you can tell that all these ‘women’ who have come forward on this type of slime, is what it is....PHONY!!!!!
I believe in Herman Cain, I hope he doesn’t quit....Billy Boy Clinton did FARRRRRR worse!!!
A wealthy man with a position of responsibility should have been able to get a goodly number of twenty-somethings lined up at his door.
So what was this old gal's hook?
Come on - don’t be a dope. Cain is done - this is insanely dumb on his part.
You know this is being worked through somebody's library of sexual fantasies ~ first, the unnamed sin, but the woman was "bothered by it" ~ made her feel "uncomfortable". Then the furtive grope in a no parking zone near one of Washington DCs busiest intersections Now, the "13 year affair".
Yet, all the complainants have legal problems, or they are serial sexual harrassment complainers.
It's pretty clear somebody is using these women ~ but that first one from INS? She's the one with a Clinton connection. So maybe it's somebody Obama believes to be in his camp who is actually doing this on behalf of Hillary.
David Axelrod is my candidate ~ and that's because of his ever increasingly complex and overtly sexual innuendo.
Next, "rape" rape!
Maybe she outperformed her looks?
Did Herman Cain commit a crime? I'm not talking about poor judgement. I'm talking about a crime.
I,for one, was giving Herman the benefit of the doubt. I still want proof, but, his latest statement makes me very angry. If I were his wife, I’d be furious. Apparently, she stayed home taking care of the home and kids and he was out gallivanting while CEO - having dinner and drinks with other women. Gloria isn’t well enough or doesn’t even want to campaign with and for him. Possibly, Herman was lonely on the trail while CEO, and had women companions to fill the gap, and he flashed that million-dollar smile and money their way. Bad mistake and totally naive, as far as I’m concerned.
I think he’s done, sad to say. and I’m still giving him the benefit of the doubt about having an “affair.”
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."
It does not matter WHAT the relationship was, Cain is done with this revelation.
Didnt you get the memo - obama is pissing himself scared over Cain.
and george did it once. not over and over and over again over more than a decade.
