Ginger White: I thought of food during sex with Herman Cain

News

The Daily Beast has an interview with Ginger White in which she includes more details about her alleged 13-year affair with Herman Cain than anyone could ever, ever, ever want to know. But yes, I read anyway.

In the interview, White describes what she says was her first encounter with Cain:

According to White, who is 46 and has been divorced three times, her relationship with Cain began while she was legally separated from her first husband, John White, the father of her two children. When she met Cain at an event in Louisville, where she lived at the time, he was as bold as he was seductive, she said.

“I was pretty amazed at how a person could just come up to you at a cocktail party, and an hour and a half later he wanted me to follow him to his hotel room to plan our first trip to Palm Springs,” said White, who was then working as a clerk at a transportation company. “It was intriguing. He was a good speaker, he told a lot of jokes, and I thought he was very intelligent and funny. He was very flirtatious, and he complimented me a lot. I was excited; I came home and told my mother, and I told my sisters when he phoned me the next day. I had to make arrangements for my kids, and my sisters were going to babysit.”

Despite her infatuation, White said she was never "in love" with Cain. She actually found him less attractive the more she got to know him.

"The more time I spent around him and the more trips we took, I started liking him less," she said. "He was very flirtatious with other women when we were out together and very chauvinistic at times. I would say something about corporate America or sexual harassment in the workplace, or something about men and women, and he would give me the impression that he thought the man was always right. When I got involved with a sexual harassment case, he said, ‘Are you sure you want to do that, because you’re going to lose your job.’ I said, ‘Yes, absolutely I do.’”

Lastly, a thought she says she had while having sex with Cain: "What am I going to buy at the grocery store tomorrow?"
