New York – Just as Cain was moving beyond a flurry of sexual harassment allegations, the world met Ginger White — who says she was Cain’s longtime lover
Herman Cain was hoping to sprint back to the front of the 2012 Republican presidential field with a new ad for his 9-9-9 tax plan and a week of showcasing his new foreign policy mettle. That plan went out the window on Monday afternoon, when Cain himself tipped off CNN that he was about to face allegations that he had a long extramarital affair. An hour later, Atlanta’s FOX 5 TV aired an interview with Atlanta businesswoman Ginger White, who said she and Cain were lovers for 13 years. She said the affair only stopped eight months ago, and that she has phone records and other proof. Cain admitted that he knew White, but denied an affair, just as his lawyer, Lin Wood, issued “a classic non-denial denial” that said “private, alleged consensual conduct between adults” is nobody’s business. Cain says he’ll stay in the GOP race as long as his wife is behind him. But is the Cain train finally derailed?
