I’m all for fighting the smear mongers. Herman weathered the Sharon Bialek accusations and was still in the race, going even stronger. In fact his donations increased! [mine included]. I loved the guy!
What he wasn’t able to shake were the allegations from a second woman, Ginger White. She claimed to have had a 13 year affair with him and had received payments from Mr. Cain that he acknowledged his wife knew nothing about.
This is from the article that YOU posted “She was out of work and had trouble paying her bills, and I had known her as a friend, Cain said, emphasizing that there was no sexual affair. “She wasn’t the only friend who I had helped in these tough economic times, and so her messages to me were relating to need money for rent’ or whatever the case may be. I don’t remember all the specifics.”
“I’m a soft-hearted person when it comes to that stuff. I have helped members of my church. I have helped members of my family, he said. “And I know a lot of other people who had done the same thing, and sometimes, quite frankly, it was desperation. “
Did you miss the part where it says he EMPHASIZED there was no sexual affair?
I heard some people on here and the radio say, well if I had a chance, I’d have done it, so he must have done it.
Personally, I believe he’s telling the truth, not the woman, but if I knew he made a mistake in his life, it would still matter more to me who would be better for the economy.
