Ginger White: ‘My heart bleeds’ for Gloria Cain

The woman who claims to have engaged in an extramarital affair for 13 years with Cain, who is currently seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for president, said “I am not a cold-hearted person. I am a mother of two kids and, of course, my heart bleeds for this woman.”
