Herman Cain's alleged 13 or 14-year, "on-again, off-again" mistress, Ginger White spoke with George Stephanopoulos this morning. It starts off a little awkward. Understandably, it's difficult to be graceful when asked, "Are you a troubled woman?" White then reveals that her longstanding alleged affair with Cain was more "on-again, off-again" than a torch-burning type of love and confirms that she did receive money and gifts from from Cain. Stephanopoulos delves a little further, coyly insinuating prostitution (as best as you can this early in the morning). "Did he ask for anything in return for that money?" White swatted that one away. From there, we see a nifty image of Cain and White's talked-about text message records proving they can text like teenagers--up until last week Stephanopoulos tells us. And then it dissolves into a one-note White defense--defending her eviction history, her libel history, and her current humiliation, finishing with White telling America, "I honestly do not think that he is, in my opinion, would make a good president as far as I’m concerned."
