Herman Cain has a self-imposed deadline to decide within the next few days whether he'll continue in the presidential race. Former New York Governor David Paterson, a political scandal veteran himself, has some advice for Cain.

From Politico:

No matter what the truth is, Cain may not have an option but to relent, said David Paterson, reflecting on his own experience of feeling falsely accused when a series of scandals forced him to abandon his run for a full term as New York governor just six days after its formal launch.

“When you’re in a campaign, if you can’t get vindicated quickly, then the campaign is more about the accusations than what you want to present to the public,” Paterson told POLITICO. “I knew I hadn’t done anything wrong, I knew I would be vindicated. But it wasn’t going to happen fast enough to present a credible campaign.”
