White said, “It was pretty simple. It was not complicated.Â I was aware that he was married. And I was also aware I was involved in a very inappropriate situation, relationship.”
Cain was a National Restaurant Association President way back in 1990 when they met. He was making a presentation to Louisiana, Ky that time. After they met, he asked her to accompany her to different cities in which he was speaking. He gave her gifts.
White has provided a vital information on their relationship like giving text messages and some documentation as evidence.
But she told the press that Cain never sexually harassed her or treated her poorly.
He broke up with her eight months ago when he was about to announce his Presidential campaign.
Cain’s lawyer, Lin Wood released a statement and said, ‘private alleged consensual adults’ is ‘not a proper subject of inquiry by the media or public.’
A campaign official of Herman Cain told Fox news that the rumors are, ‘baseless false accusations.’
It is another setback for Cain after the sexual harassment allegations and might fade his popularity.
It may also weaken the support of the Republicans in which concerns social issues specially the institution of marriage.
Cain has been married to his wife for 43 years.
In a first time interview after the sexual harassment allegations, she appeared in an interview on On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.
“I seriously, in my soul, don’t think he’s that type of person.”
“There has been some troubles, but we loved each other for 43 years.”
