I have no problem with HC’s story. I assume if there was an affair of some kind and she was travelling on and off with him, she would be able to produce some kind of evidence. To date she has not.
But it doesn’t speak well for HC’s judgment, IMO, if he’s a married man and giving another woman money and his wife doesn’t know a thing about it.

Evidence? Like what? It could easily have been the occasional hookup, where he paid for everything (no receipts) and all she really has is dates and the like. Or she was just a “companion” he liked to hang out with more than his wife. Either are easily understood and explain why his wife had no knowledge of it.
Regardless, Cain’s other glaring political faults are the source of his demise...this just sheds a few social conservatives.
I think we view his actions through our eyes.
In our world, giving someone say $500 for rent is a big deal. If we gave $10 for a fundraiser at work, we may not tell our wives. To Cain, perhaps $500 is like $10 is to us.
It would help his case, if he said “over the last X years, I’ve given $y to this many people”
Couldn't have said it better. And Newt's “judgment” is even more questionable, but the fix seems to be in for him to be the Republican nominee. Newt's current story about his well-known marital affairs reminds me of a line from a popular song last year: “I've done some things but that was the old me.”
