“One time we were having sex, and I was looking up at the ceiling, thinking about, ‘What am I going to buy at the grocery store tomorrow? What am I going to do with my kids tomorrow?’ One time after we had sex, I cried. He said, ‘Maybe we shouldn’t do this for a while.’ So maybe he did have a heart — or half a heart. But I knew I needed his financial help.”
Alleged mistress Ginger White came forward one week ago claming she has had a 13-year-long affair with Herman Cain. (Cain suspended his campaign this weekend, citing “distractions,” which presumably allude to White’s allegations and several sexual harassment allegations against him.) This weekend she spoke to The Daily Beast about their sex life. Instead of juicy, it’s pretty depressing!
More quotes from Ginger White about sex with Herman Cain, after the jump:
Although there were lots of “trips” and “drinks,” it doesn’t sound like their sex life was so hot for Ginger White:
“One time we were having sex, and I was looking up at the ceiling, thinking about, ‘What am I going to buy at the grocery store tomorrow? What am I going to do with my kids tomorrow?’ One time after we had sex, I cried. He said, ‘Maybe we shouldn’t do this for a while.’ So maybe he did have a heart—or half a heart. But I knew I needed his financial help.”
White said at the beginning of their affair 13 years ago, she and Cain saw each other once a month. She explained that Cain helped her out financially between her second and third marriages and after her third divorce. For the past two and a half years, she told the Daily Beast, he sent her financial support monthly. And yes, she realized this financial support came with a price:
“Herman helped me out financially because it meant I could be there if he ever needed to have another fling. He just kept me close. He knew that as long as he was helping me, if he wanted to phone me and say, ‘Meet me here,’ I would, solely out of obligation. … There are good men in corporate America, and there are bad men in corporate America, and those bad men take advantage of women in fragile situations — women who are struggling.”
That is interesting to me because it shows how she completely understood the power dynamic in their relationship. She was not at all deluded that they had a romance; she knew that their relationship was about exchanging sex for money.
Perhaps the ickiest comment from Ginger White about Herman Cain is this — not that he would exchange money for sex, which men and women have been doing from the beginning of time, but that he felt that he was unstoppable:
“I wasn’t surprised when women came out with sexual harassment allegations. My initial reaction was, ‘They’re not lying,’ because he feels as if he can approach any women, say whatever he wants to say, and they’re going to be OK with that, just because he’s Herman Cain.”
All around the guy sounds like a real winner, huh?
And of course all the hanky-panky is flatly denied by Cain’s lawyer, who only acknowledged the financial support: “No good deed goes unpunished.”
