HERMAN CAIN MISTRESS CHECKERED PAST

The Atlanta woman who claims she was Presidential contender HERMAN CAIN’s mistress for 13 years is a broke single mom.

GINGER WHITE’s bombshell announcement came minutes after the beleaguered candidate already rocked by sexual harassment charges by multiple accusers attempted to pre-empt her on CNN.

She told an Atlanta TV station WAGA-TV, a Fox affiliate, she’s “not proud” of herself- describing in lurid detail her long running affair with the much- married GOP heavyweight.

“I didn’t want to come out this way.”

The latest Cain accuser described herself in the interview as a middle-aged jobless former businesswoman.  White has two children and was recently evicted from her Atlanta home earlier this month, this according to a routine background check done by WAGA-TV News reporters obtained legal records showing she has received mutiple eviction notices in DeKalb County, Ga., over the past six years.

The station also reported she filed for bankruptcy 23 years ago and in 2001,  White filed a sexual harassment suit which was later settled.

White admitted struggling as a single mother. “I don’t think that makes me out to be a bad person,” she told the station. “It makes me out to be one of the millions of people right now trying to keep a roof over their head.”

White said during the TV interview she had ignore the fact  that Herman Cain was indeed married during their alleged affair. White said the affair included numerous trysts in hotel rooms nationwide after they met at a business conference during the 1990s.

“It was pretty simple,” White told WAGA-TV. “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, has been married for 43 years, went on CNN to promptly deny the affair before White’s complete WAGA-TV interview was broadcast live.

Cain’s lawyer told CNN because White hasn't alleged harassment or assault, the matter of his sexual peccadilloes is not news worthy.

“The public's right to know and the media's right to report has boundaries and most certainly those boundaries end outside of one's bedroom door,” Wood wrote.

White told the TV station she came forward because she is upset how Cain and his handlers have disrespected previous allegations that he sexually harassed four women, two of whom reportedly received cash payoffs rom the National Restaurant Association, where he was CEO during the 1990s.

“It bothered me that they were being demonized, sort of; they were treated as if they were automatically lying, and the burden of proof was on them,” White stated. “I felt bad for them.”
