An Atlanta businesswoman claimed Monday a 13-year affair with Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain, whose campaign has already been hurt by a rash of sexual harassment allegations.
“It was pretty simple,” Ginger White told Atlanta’s Fox 5 television. “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.”
Cain, a former pizza company executive who has faded back in the pack of Republicans seeking to take on President Barack Obama in November 2012, denied the allegations preemptively, shortly before the news broke.
“This individual is going to accuse me of an affair for an extended period of time,” Cain told CNN, vehemently denying any sex was involved. “It is someone that I know who is an acquaintance that I thought was a friend.”
