Herman Cain's polling numbers have been falling. The allegations of sexual harassment have taken a toll. So, DCDecoder wasn't even sure it was worth posting about the latest embarrassing revelation to hit the Cain campaign.
But this particular detail - where Ginger White, the woman claiming to have had a 13-year adulterous relationship with Herman Cain, gives the reporters from Fox 5 in Atlanta her cell phone bill and the reporters text one of the numbers and get a callback from Cain himself - was just too much to pass up.
She [Ginger White] showed us some of her cell phone bills that included 61 phone calls or text messages to or from a number starting with 678. She says it is Herman Cain’s private cell phone. The calls were made during four different months— calls or texts made as early as 4:26 in the early morning, and as late as 7:52 at night. The latest were in September of this year.
“We’ve never worked together,” said White. “And I can’t imagine someone phoning or texting me for the last two and a half years, just because.”
We texted the number and Herman Cain called us back. He told us he “knew Ginger White” but said these are “more false allegations.” He said she had his number because he was “trying to help her financially.”
Some other intriguing details: According to White, Cain gave her autographed copies of his books, writing, “Miss G, you have already made a ‘big difference!’ Stay focused as you pursue your next destination” in one, and “Friends are forever! Everything else is a bonus” in the other.
And then there’s Ms. White’s description of the candidate himself:
“Very much confident, very much sure of himself. Very arrogant in a playful sometimes way. Very, ah — Herman Cain loves Herman Cain.”
