Herman Cain Wife – Herman Cain admits his wife had no knowledge of Ginger White.
The embattled GOP presidential candidate admitted he gave money every month to the woman who claims she’s his mistress – and that his spouse didn’t know.
Cain, whose once-soaring campaign may be on its last legs, said his spouse of four decades did not even realize her husband knew White, who has said she had a 13-year affair with the candidate.
“My wife did not know about it. My wife found out about it when [White] went public with it,” Herman told the Manchester Union-Leader late Thursday.
The former CEO of Godfather Pizza whose unlikely campaign has been rocked by a series of sexual harassment scandals, has denied having an adulterous relationship with White, an unemployed Atlanta businesswoman.
But he admitted trading about 70 text messages with her this fall – and said he paid her money so she could take care of her bills.
“I’m a soft-hearted person when it comes to that stuff,” Herman Cain told the New Hampshire newspaper. “I have helped members of my church. I have helped members of my family.”
He would not say how much money he gave White – but acknowledged he should have told his spouse about her.
