Herman Cain suspended his campaign this weekend, but the revelations about his sex scandals just keep coming. Today, the Daily Beast published a lengthy interview with Mr. Cain’s alleged mistress, Ginger White, in which she claims carnal relations with Mr. Cain made her cry and daydream about grocery shopping.
Ms. White came forward last Monday to tell her tale of a 13-year affair with Mr. Cain. After a series of sexual harassment accusations, Ms. White’s revelations were the straw that broke camel’s back and prompted Mr. Cain to announce the suspension of his presidential bid Saturday. Ms. White’s story may have sunk Mr. Cain’s White House bid and, adding insult to injury, she is casting doubt about his prowess in between the sheets. In her Daily Beast interview Ms. White described one particularly passion-free encounter.
“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?’” Ms. White said.
Ms. White also detailed another instance of sex with Mr. Cain that sounded even less satisfying than the grocery list tryst.
“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,” said Ms. White.
According to Ms. White, Mr. Cain provided her with regular financial help over the years that was her primary motivation for continuing their liaisons.
“He would send me extra cash and things like that,” Ms. White said. “I was appreciative of that. I said thank you, every time. But I think every time he had sex with me, he was getting a lot more than I was getting.”
