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.

    I'm tired of Cain. Please leave the stage and go home to your wife!

    @NameJoe wants proof that Cain DIDN'T do it. No proof that he DID is necessary. And @Mikey says he wants Mr. Cain to "elaborate on the details of these false claims." I agree that the more this happens, the worse it looks, but those two statements are ridiculous. President Clinton said it was impossible to prove a negative. He was right. As far as Gloria Allred's client's claim that Mr. Cain upgraded her room to a palatial suite before groping her (in a car), there has to be a record of the suite being reserved, occupied, and paid.

    Some right wingers who supported this fluke for GOP nomination are beginning to wonder if they made the right choice. Oh never mind this is a liberal conspiracy to get rid of a Black conservative! Right Rush Dumbo, Ann coulter and right wing elk?

    They should claim to be the party completely without morals, that would be more accurate.

    Could it be that this is the reason why Donald Trump decided not to run?

    This is realy getting boring and we are tired of this garbage. Leave the man alone and tend to more important issues. So obvious what you liberals try to do. We have your number and you have zero impact.

    Say what you want about Cain, he is still more loyal to his wife than the Newt is (was) to his wives.

    If you still have faith in Cain, you are by definition a conspiracy theorist

    At no point in this interview does Cain deny the accusation. He simply says the woman is going to come forward and accuse him of having a 13 year affair. He never says he didn't have the affair. I'm not saying he is guilty or that he is not, just that the headline is incorrect.
