Herman Cain Launches ‘Women for Cain’ Website

Embattled GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain has launched a new website targeted at women, titled Women for Cain. This news follows more allegations of infidelity against Cain.

The NY Daily News reports that the site, which is run by his wife, Gloria Cain, features letters and emails from women who support her husband despite the latest allegations by a Georgia woman who claims she carried on a 13-year affair with Cain.

“Dear Mrs. Cain,” wrote one supporter from California, “Don’t pay attention to these pathetic husband-less women who are jealous of women like you in happy long-term marriages. These vindictive women can’t find a husband or keep one.”

Another fan from South Carolina wrote: “It’s pathetic and shameful women are so desperate for their five minutes of fame that they would position themselves against the greatest potential President Americans could be blessed enough to have.”

The website was launched a day after Cain set Monday as the deadline for making his decision to stay in the race for the White House. Cain had said he would “reassess” his candidacy after campaign donations began to decline.

Meanwhile Ginger White, the woman who alleges a 13-year affair with Cain, apologized Thursday to Cain’s wife for going public with the affair.

“I am not a cold-hearted person. I am a mother of two kids. And of course my heart bleeds for this woman because I am a woman and being in a situation like this can not be fun,” White said on MSNBC.

“And I am deeply, deeply sorry if I have caused any hurt to her and to his kids, to his family. That was not my intention. I never wanted to hurt anyone and I’m deeply sorry. I am very sorry,” she told host Lawrence O’Donnell.

Cain had planned on meeting with his wife Friday to discuss their plans for the campaign. The new website seems to indicate that the Cains have no plans to drop out of the race.

  1. The circus goes on and on and on. More than ever, as I look at the sorry set of Republican “rivals” on the other side, I am THANKFUL to have Barack Obama as President, and as a viable candidate for re-election. Mr. Obama: your heart, your values, and your basic decency are all in the right place. But...your hands are tied. Unfortunately they were tied by us, the electorate.....when we failed to provide you with a Congress that you can work with. Instead, you are saddled with a don’t-tax-the-1%-do-nothing Congress that battles you at every turn, while the people suffer. God, they don't EVEN let you pass your own appointments. It's not Tea-publican gridlock - it's Tea-publican sabotage. it's Tea-publican treason....while the 99% BLEEDS. And then they try to pin the blame on Mr. Obama. These people have no shame...or else its been purchased by those who can afford to do so. Grandma gets her meager Social Security check, and they call it “socialism”. Give me a break! (and Grandma too!) Thankfully, with Occupy Wall Street, America has found its voice: a voice that reminds us that people -ordinary working people- really DO matter. Not “corporations are people-people” , but REAL people! Tea-publicans want even more tax-break-corporate-welfare-loopholes....while companies send our jobs overseas, and wish that we’d go away too, as they buy every politician in sight. They talk about “welfare queens”, but hey, if these guys don’t have enough mistresses, I can hook them up with a few gorgeous -and rich!- oil companies. It would be a perfect blind date, except for the fact that they’re ALREADY in bed with them :-). But instead of talking about less government , and more corporate welfare, and more painful cuts to those who can LEAST afford it..., Occupy is a voice that demands a government that WORKS, a government that works FOR ALL OF US, not just for a favored few,...not just for the rich. It’s a voice that comes up from the grassroots, and lifts us up in turn: because it insists that this land IS our land...and that we WANT IT BACK! And most importantly, it's a voice that will help us re-elect the President AND give him a more progressive Congress to work with. Mr. Obama: I wish you well. You STILL give us hope.
