Herman Cain. He was the man with the plan, the one-time front runner in the Republican Presidential Race, but since has been marred with news of a previous sexual harassment settlement followed by a flood of women claiming sexual harassment.
Last week, in what proved to be the final nail in the coffin for his campaign, a woman named Ginger White came out and claimed that she and Mr. Cain have been having a 13 year long affair. In a Fox 5 Atlanta news exclusive, Ginger White went through the details of the affair, saying it just ended about 8 months ago.
When we asked for any corroborating evidence, she pointed us to her cell phone contacts. One name: Herman Cain.
She showed us some of her cell phone bills that included 61 phone calls or text messages to or from a number starting with 678. She says it is Herman Cain’s private cell phone. The calls were made during four different months– calls or texts made as early as 4:26 in the early morning, and as late as 7:52 at night. The latest were in September of this year.

This led to a week of denials from Cain who said it represented more false accusations, but culminated this Saturday when Herman Cain dropped out of the Republican Primary.
So as of today, with a lot of prayer and soul-searching, I am suspending my presidential campaign. I am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distractions, the continued hurt caused on me and my family — not because we are not fighters; not because I am not a fighter.
Cain went on to announce that although he is ending his campaign, he is not planning to leave the political arena. While running for President was what he referred to has his “Plan A,” he has moved on to plan B: www.thecainsolutions.com. Cain plans to use this platform to continue to promote his policies, especially his 9-9-9 tax reform plan.
He ended his speech on Saturday by using a quote from the Pokemon movie (suggesting Pokemon used it from someone else) to describe where he is privately and where we are as a nation.
Life can be a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It’s never easy when there’s so much on the line. But you and I can make a difference. There’s a mission just for you and me. Just look inside and you will find just what you can do. Just look inside and you will find just what you can do.
So what do you think? Is this fair? Who do you think stands to gain the most from Cain’s departure? How seriously do you take a candidate who quotes the Pokemon movie? Comment Below!
