A Georgia woman, Ginger White, says she and Herman Cain had a 13-year affair that lasted nearly until the businessman announced his White House run.
Last weekend, FOX 5 Atlanta sat down with White, who insisted that despite coming forward, “I'm not proud. I didn't want to come out with this. I did not.”
White was worried a political tsunami was headed her way, so, she decided to head it off, confessing her alleged 13-year-long affair with the Republican.
NOTE: Herman Cain denies White's allegations categorically, and the candidate's wife, Gloria Cain, has defended her husband from all the allegations so far.
That said, the alleged mistress insists this affair was real.
“It was pretty simple,” White said. “It wasn't complicated. I was aware he was married. I was also aware I was involved in a very inappropriate relationship.”
Ginger White says she met Herman Cain in the late 90s in Louisville, Ky., when as president of the National Restaurant Association, he made a presentation.
“He made it very intriguing,” White told FOX 5. “It was fun. It was something that took me away from my humdrum life at the time. And it was exciting.”
