Accuser: Cain Made Alleged 13-Year Affair "Intriguing"

WAGA FOX-5 calls a common number on accuser's cell phone bills and Herman Cain answers.

Atlanta-area business woman and divorced mother of two Ginger White alleged on WAGA FOX-5 that she had a 13-year affair with Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain in an exclusive news story Monday with reporter Dale Russell.

"I was aware that he was married," White, 46, said in the report, "and I was also aware that I was involved in a very inappropriate situation relationship."
In the 10-minute-long report, White details an affair that she claims began after he spoke to a group in Louisville, Ky., when he was president of the National Restaurant Association.
The story includes clips of cell phone bills with repeat calls and texts to and from one number that called her as early as 4:26 a.m. 
In the story, White, who lives in Dunwoody, claims the number is to Cain's personal mobile phone. At one point, Russell calls the number and Cain answers. However, Cain states that White had his phone number because he was helping her with her career.
A review of court documents by WAGA, reveal that White has been sued several times for not paying rent. In addition, records show White has filed bankruptcy and was once sued for libel by a former business partner. White says in the report that she was unaware of the lawsuit and that she inadvertently loss the case.
Cain, 65, who was profiled by Cascade Patch correspondent Yolande Minor in October in "The Herman Cain of Atlanta's West Side," grew up in segregated Atlanta and attended segregated schools, English Avenue Elementary, in the Vine City-English Avenue area, and the former Archer High School (now part of Harper-Archer Middle School) in an industrial, blue collar community on Perry Boulevard. At the age of 10, he joined Antioch Baptist Church, the intown southwest Atlanta church lead by the influential Rev. Cameron Alexander. As an adult, Cain has served as an associate pastor of the church.
Cain's father, Luther, worked as a janitor, a barber, and a chauffeur for Robert Woodruff, the president for Coca-Cola. His mother, Lenora, was a domestic worker. One of Luther Cain's high points in life was saving enough money from his three jobs to purchase a modest brick home on Albert Street off Oldknow in the Collier Heights neighborhood.
Cain graduated salutatorian from Archer in 1963 and was chose as both "Best All Around" and "Most Likely to Succeed" by his peers. Cain went on to graduate from Morehouse College in 1967 and a year later married Atlanta resident Gloria Etchison after she graduated from Morris Brown College.
Before Monday's development, news broke earlier this fall that two women had come forward to complain of sexual misconduct by Cain during his tenure as the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s. Two more, including Sharon Bialek, the first to speak publically, have come forth since.
Cain has repeatedly denied wrongdoing.
