Ginger White – There is something about White’s story that doesn’t make sense. Can Herman Cain really have all these secrets and “skeletons in the closet” before being a candidate for President? If so, he was surely misguided or didn’t notice the seriousness in past sexual harassment cases that received a financial settlement or the fact that he had an affair with Miss White for 11 months.
Are the women lying? Is White lying about the affair? It seems like every time Cain denies another allegation, there’s another woman stepping forward with a tissue in hand.
We do need to know the truth about people. This country needs a president to be a leader and we certainly don’t need him distracted at the office if he has an appetite to cheat and fool around. It just seems silly to know all of this — if in fact the allegations are true — to waste so time and money knowing that these stories will surface.
White says “I’m not proud,” when interviewed by Atlanta TV station WAGA. “I didn’t want to come out with this. I did not,” she said.
So why did she come out with this? Did she really have any reason, or was it to ruin his political future? This is where her story doesn’t make sense. I am not saying she’s lying, I am being very skeptical.
White said the two met in the late 1990s, while Cain was on a business trip for the National Restaurant Assn. She ended up in his hotel room. From there, she said, he began flying her around the country to meet him at speaking engagements.
They often stayed at a hotel in Atlanta. He autographed two of his books for her, she said. White said the physical relationship ended about eight months ago, prior to Cain announcing that he was running for president.
Does Ginger White Have Proof?
As for proof of the relationship, she handed over her cell phone, which contained dozens of calls and texts from a number she said was Cain’s private cell phone. The last one had been as recent as September.
When Russell, the WAGA reporter, texted the number on her phone, Cain called back. He said he knew White but was only helping her financially. He has been married to his wife, Gloria, for 43 years.
I think that pretty much sums it up. He denied the affair but admitted to the friendship. He couldn’t deny calling her or sending the text messages.
White told the station she came forward because she had seen the Presidential candidate disparage other women who have accused him of sexual harassment while he was at the restaurant group.
“It bothered me that they were being demonized, sort of, they were treated as if they were automatically lying, and the burden of proof was on them,” White told WAGA. “I felt bad for them.”
