ATLANTA - Tea Party activists have been among the strongest supporters of Herman Cain, but a co-founder of the Atlanta Tea Party said she's changed her mind about a candidate she had defended.
"I think he should withdraw from the race at this point but that decision is for Herman and his family to make," said Atlanta Tea Party leader Debbie Dooley.
Dooley said she was troubled by Cain's denials following the FOX 5 I-Team report on Ginger White and her story of 13-year-long affair with Cain. White pointed to phone records showing repeated calls and text messages between the two.
"A reasonable person would assume that he has not been exactly forthright and completely honest about his relationship with her," said Dooley.

GOP: Abandon all hope, ye who enter here!
Debbie Dooly needs to see the phone records herself.
As there are none.
This is a high tech lynching by
Rahm Emmanuel and David Alexrod.
They have done this twice before in order
to elect 0bama to the Illinois Senate and the US Senate .
It’s more than heartbreaking — it is, at this point in the process, effectively handing over to the media the power to choose our candidate. We might as well save a lot of time and money, and grassroots work, and let the media take a poll, and we just nominate whomever they tell us to... that’s really what people like this are doing.
I mentor a group and we ardently support Newt - and always send contributions to the Newt Five Dollar Friday Fund - and the last 2 out of 3 weeks we have sent our money to Cain. Tomorrow we are going to try and send Herman double what we would normally send Newt. This is sand and line time. This can’t be allowed to happen. It can’t be allowed.
Cain is almost incidental to it all. I know that is hard to understand, but that is how I feel. The Ann Coulter article that was posted here the last few days is as close as anything I’ve read to what this is all about. Pray for Herman Cain. Men do stupid things all the time. All the time. That doesn’t make him worthless, it makes him a sinner. Pray for Herman.
Huh, imagine. Fox Atlanta, the station that first reported the woman’s allegation, now is able to find a tea party person who is jumping off the Cain Train. What a coincidence. -:)
It ain’t over til its over- Mr. Cain has a long way to come back, but I don’t think he’s dropping out.
I followed her on Facebook for a while, that is how I know.
First they came for Herman Cain ....
Yup. The Truth is still getting on his boots.
How come Ginger goes to all these swanky places with Herman but never takes any pictures? Everbody's got cameras nowadays. And How come she's been "with him" for 13 years, but the only specific time and place she can name was almost 15 years ago (the Holyfield-Tyson fight in Las Vegas)?
I was just getting ready to post about that Iran thing when I clicked on your ‘LOL’ tag. Like dominoes falling around here!!
Don't give up now! Battles are not won overnight. You may believe all is futile, but there is momentum in the Conservative movement. We may not get our first choice in candidates, but overall we are seeing conservatives being elected from Precinct Committeeman on up. The last thing you should do is quit!

You forgot Obama's first Illinois State Senate race for the 13th district in 1994. four primary opponents. ALL of them disqualified. As the ONLY candidate standing, he won.
Looks like Cain is looking for positive feedback to make his decision:
Seriously, what the hell is wrong with you?
Cain hasn’t been taken out. He is at a crossroads and needs to reach deep down inside for supernatural courage, and his family has to, also. I come from a military family, and we were taught only one response to adversity of any kind... plant your feet, lean into, BEAT IT BACK. May Herman do so...
We knew at the beginning, conservative values were going to be a threat to both the DNC and the RNC and things would get ugly. Well, here we are. Mr. Cain is a good, honorable man, and he does not in any way deserve what is being heaped upon his fine name and character. Every time I hear himn speak I’m renewed in my faith that he can provide the leadership our country needs right now. I can only imagine how tough this race is for him and his family, but I ask them to please stand firm, and, if they can, put their country first, and stay in the fight. If they do, I promise you, we will have their back.
