Herman Cain ‘Reassessing’ Campaign

You’ve no doubt heard about the latest Herman Cain accuser, Ginger White, who claims she carried on a 13-year affair with Cain.

Cain’s campaign manager Mark Block, after polishing off his sixth Marlboro of the morning, said that Cain is now “reassessing” his campaign:

Herman Cain’s chief of staff Mark Block confirmed to ABC News that the candidate told his senior staff this morning he’s reassessing whether to stay in the race, as reported by the National Review.

Cain said that he’ll make his final decision “over the next several days,” according to the National Review.

Cain’s deputy campaign manager, Linda Hansen, told ABC News that on the conference call Tuesday morning, “Mr. Cain told staff simply that, just as every time significant events occur, a reassessment is prudent.”

At this point we don’t know anything other than Cain’s accusers sure do seem to have histories of being involved in sexual harrassment allegations as well as financial problems — and the woman claiming she had an affair with Cain is no different. That doesn’t mean nothing happened, but it is a curious common denominator.

Cain admits to being friends with the woman but denies any affair:


The woman apparently had dozens of calls and messages to and from Herman Cain’s cell phone — nothing of a sexual nature, at least nothing that’s being reported. Cain says he was trying to help her financially. So either Cain’s lying or he’s a victim of being a nice guy in an ulterior motive world — and I’ve seen the latter happen with my own eyes before.

What does it all mean? As many women who have been crawling out of the woodwork and accusing Herman Cain of sexual harassment (and now add an affair to the pile) whose evidence is heresay and allegations from that harpy attention-whore Gloria Allred, I’m going to need to see a “blue dress” before I assume anything to be true at this point.
