Another Cain Story

An Atlanta woman has come forward to say that she had an affair for thirteen years with Herman Cain. (Remember him? He was all the rage a few weeks ago. Tempus fugit.)

An Atlanta businesswoman is breaking her silence, claiming she has been involved in a 13-year-long affair with Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain.

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, FOX 5 senior I-Team reporter Dale Russell sat down with Ginger White, who had a story to tell.

“I’m not proud,” White told Russell. “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, by confessing she was involved in a 13-year-long affair with presidential hopeful Herman Cain.

“It was pretty simple,” White said. “It wasn’t complicated. I was aware that he was married. And I was also aware I was involved in a very inappropriate situation, relationship.”

I really don’t care what two adults do behind closed doors unless they’ve made a big deal out of criticizing other people for what they do behind closed doors. The only reason I’m bringing this up is because Mr. Cain’s lawyer had the presence of mind to release a statement basically saying that Mr. Cain did nothing wrong: this was not sexual assault, but an extramarital affair.

In the party that has serial adulterer Newt Gingrich as the frontrunner, that’s a feature, not a bug.
