WASHINGTON (CBS Washington/AP) — A woman is claiming that she had a 13-year-long affair with Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain.
Ginger White told WAGA-TV that she had a 13-year affair with Cain.
“It was pretty simple. 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,” White told the television station.
In an interview on CNN, Cain said he knows the woman and said the accusation is baseless.
He said he does not intend to quit the presidential race as long as he has the support of his wife.
Cain was hit earlier in the month by several accusations that he sexually harassed or groped women more than a decade ago when he was a high-ranking official at the National Restaurant Association.
He has denied any wrongdoing, although his rise in opinion polls has been reversed in the days since the accusations came to light.
