Herman Cain would not be a good president, the 46-year-old Georgia woman who claims they carried on a 13-year affair told Good Morning America‘s George Stephanopoulos on Wednesday.
“I honestly do not think that he is, in my opinion, would make a good president as far as I’m concerned,” Ginger White said in an exclusive live interview.
As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, White claims she and the former Godfather’s Pizza president & CEO — who’s been married 43 years to wife Gloria — were involved in “a very inappropriate situation.”
To back up her claims, White — the fifth woman to accuse Cain of inappropriate dealings with women — has provided documentation of their communications, including a series of late night text messages and phone calls, with some coming in the last two months.
White told Stephanopoulos that she consistently received money from the presidential hopeful, but clarified it was not a “sex for cash” arrangement.
“You know last night I slept very well telling the truth. I’m not sure what’s going on in his head right now but it’s unfortunate that any of this is going on,” she said. “I can’t image waking up one morning and deciding to come out with this if this was not true. … This has been a very difficult situation for myself and for my family.
“And it’s nothing that I’m proud of.”
Asked if Cain, an ordained Baptist minister, should wrap up his campaign in the wake of the numerous allegations, White told Stephanopoulos, “That’s something that he has to look himself in the mirror and ask himself.”
Cain initially denied White’s accusations while chatting with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Monday, saying, “I acknowledge that I’ve known her for about that period of time, but the accusation that I had a 13-year affair with her? No, no, no!”
In an e-mail to his political supporters, Cain labeled White as a “troubled Atlanta business woman” running to “national media outlets to promulgate a fabricated, unsubstantiated story.”
