Since Herman Cain withdrew from his presidential campaign in 2011 amid allegations that he had committed adultery and sexually harassed various women, he’s mostly just been a media guy on talk radio and Fox News, spouting off on the issues of the day.
Unfortunately for him, the new book “Double Down,” a behind-the-scenes look at the 2012 presidential election, brings those charges back to mind (How could we have forgotten Ginger White?) and Cain’s feeling forced to respond once again.
He addressed the book on his blog at CainTV:
The accusations were false. I have never sexually harassed a woman and I did not have an affair with Ginger White. Until now, I have never offered the facts that expose these accusations as lies, although I have been in possession of them. It is now time to do so, not only because the false accusations have received renewed attention with the publication of a book that discusses them, but more importantly because I refuse to live my life, pursue my radio and professional career or do anything else that God has left for me to do in this world with a dark cloud attached to my reputation that is not consistent with the truth.
Cain goes on to list a bunch of things that he says vindicate him, which you can read in full here.
