In a new interview with the Daily Beast, Herman Cain's alleged mistress of 13 years, Ginger White, talked in detail about their sex life and how his "arrogance" and denial of the numerous sexual harassment accusations made her go public.
While Cain has denied ever having a sexual relationship with White, he did admit to providing her with financial support for that time period. But despite White driving the last stake into Cain's presidential campaign, she may have done the same for herself financially.
"My coming out has caused me to have no more money from Herman Cain and no offers of help from anyone," she said.
White's troubled economic history includes a bankruptcy filing 23 years ago and several eviction notices over the last six years.
Cain's attorney, L. Lin Wood, said that Cain was providing her with financial assistance up to a week before she broke her silence to the world.
"She was reaching out, asking for financial help, because she couldn't pay her rent and didn't have gas in her car," Wood said. "He gave her some money within probably a week or 10 days of when she decided to go public."
So what made this struggling Georgia woman risk it all?
White says that Cain's arrogance forced her to come out because she believed he was flipping off women he'd really damaged.
"I wasn't surprised when women came out with sexual harassment allegations," White said. "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. He's very sure of himself. He has this arrogance about him. He feels as if, when he walks across the room, all eyes are upon him. Herman Cain loves Herman Cain."
She also went on to talk about how she met Cain and about their sex life.
"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?' " she recalled. "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."
