Woman says she and Cain had 13-year affair; Cain denies accusation

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) - An Atlanta businesswoman has accused GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain of having had an affair with her that lasted nearly 14 years.

"I was aware that he was married, and I was also aware that I was involved in a very inappropriate situation relationship," Ginger White told Atlanta television station WAGA.

    Actually, this allegation doesn't bother me because if he and this woman had a long-term affair, it was consensual. Groping women is harrassment. I still don't think he's ready for primetime yet.

    Why is it that all these women have suddenly gone silent the moment Cain drops in the polls? What happened to court filings? Requests to have a the restaurant association release files?

    You why it stopped? Because they achieved what they wanted. They smeared Cain so there's no need to keep going now.

    But remember, as Cain himself said, there are thousands of women out there who won't make an accusation against him. You gotta like those odds!

    So he stays as long as his wife says he'll stay? Why doesn't his wife just run for the presidency?

    Well, we all know we can't have a lecherous pig in the white house. That would be completely new.

  9. GOP = Greed Over People

    Looks, like Cain's "black walnuts" are starting to soften and melt, and appear about to leave him in a puddle of GOP goo.

    Another GOP "rising star" flames out and is now wallowing in self-pity.

    You just keep "walking in the footsteps of Jesus" and preaching those GOP "christian family values" Pastor Cain!

    Teaching by example?

    Guess this gives a whole new meaning to Cain's 9-9-9 plan, 9 in, 9 out...

    Did Ms. Cleo at the Psychic Hotline or the Magic 8 Ball warn him of impending affair accusations?

    It's a good thing all those "family values conservatives" are complete hypocrites, or ol' Herman would have been toast a long time ago. Instead, they'll just look the other way.

    I get so tired of Politicians and their parties searching for junk to tell on other politicians just to get ahead of the polls. Everyone has skeletons in their closets. But whats so crazy with politics/politicians is that is that gossip, accusations, etc., never comes up publicly until they run for office. America needs to quit this mess! He who is without sin, let him cast the first stone....

    Even though I'm a conservative with all these accusations there has to be some grain of truth behind one of them, you would think??? Anyways, I'm hoping Newt gets the GOP nomination for he seems to be the only sensible candidate on the GOP side.

    Isn't he still selling a book? If so, why should he get out now, when he gets free transportation to all the book stores.Not to mention tax payer funded security.

    He in a panic. He should have waited after this accuser comes out first.

    Just because these allegations "can't be proved" doesn't make them false and baseless...where there is smoke, there is fire!

    CNN needs to take a deep breath! Someone is out to get Herman Cain and your news reporters should be looking into who it is instead of getting your panties in a wad over another allegation.
