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.

    This is not a problem for the GOP!! It would only be wrong to them if Herman's been with another man!

    Stick a fork in him! He is done no need to turn him over and to put the oven on warm. Step down and save your family the grief of your sheer stupidity.

    Attempted rape at the office isn't really an extramarital affair. It's a crime.

    It's funny , things like this used to destroy someone's chances but now we are so used to dishonorable and cheating liars that we turn and looked the other way , we should all send a clear message to this guy that he should go back to the pizza business and that his character is obviously not strong enough for public office but no , it's only the democrats that are held to those standards.

    There is a center of information in Atlanta that will shed all of the light you need on the "Herman Cain" womanizing situation. That center is the neighborhood barbershop where he gets his hair cujt. The neighborhood babershop has traditionally been the one place where many African American men go to brag about conquests and such. I guarantee you that his barber is a wealth of information. Additionally, I have not seen any photos of this latest accuser but I will be willing to bet the farm that she is what is reffered to as a "red bone." I know that sounds racist but unfortunately it only echoes the sentiment of many black men of his generation. Herman tried to get "cool" when he was about 40 yrs old but that was too late. He missed all of the "player moves." He in turn felt that his ability to amass wealth would give him the pass that he always wanted but did not know how to attain. I have found in my 62 yrs that there are two types of men in this world: Players or Payers. Herman ain't a Player or Playah. . . .

    I got a phone call from him (pre-recorded) to vote for him. All he kept saying was "I am raising Cain!!" sounds like he already has!! To many allegations for them all to be wrong.

    This man is definitely going to become our next president, because all these allegations will boomerang to help him win. All foolish, sentimental and emotional people will vote for him, because they are just like him.

    Sad, really. What does it take for Americans to realize what phonies these moralizing, right-wing talk show people are? Glenn Beck, Bill Bennett, Rush Limbaugh... you choose.

    The accusations of a long-time affair were inevitable. My personal theory is that if you go around groping every hot woman (or man) and proposition her (or him), you will run into at least one who will say "Yeah, why not?".

    Gingrich has had multiple affairs, and that hasn't forced him out of the race.
