Herman Cain Admits Knowing Latest Accuser, Denies Consensual Affair
Unlike accuser #4, Herman Cain admits to knowing his latest accuser, Ginger White, who went on TV today to detail their 13 year consensual affair.
She says during the next 13 years, he would fly her to cities where he was speaking and he lavished her with gifts. She says they often stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Buckhead and dined at The Four Seasons restaurant. She says he never harassed her, never treated her poorly, and was the same man you see on the campaign trail.
Cain admits knowing Ms. White for 13 years but denies having an affair with her. He says he's just been trying to help her financially. [More...]
Mediaite has the video of the interview. Most interesting part:
Perhaps the most interesting moment came when Ms. White showed her cell phone to the reporter, demonstrating that she had received some recent phone calls from Mr. Cain. When the reporter texted the number assigned to Cain, he claims to have spoken to the presidential candidate himself.
Mediaite also says Ms. White has a history of false accusations.
Update: Did Cain's attorney, Lin Wood, just admit the affair?
"This appears to be an accusation of private, alleged consensual conduct between adults - a subject matter which is not a proper subject of inquiry by the media or the public. No individual, whether a private citizen, a candidate for public office or a public official, should be questioned about his or her private sexual life," Wood said.
