(Newser) – Herman Cain told the Union Leader of New Hampshire that he frequently gave money to the woman who has alleged having an affair with him, but he never told his wife about it. In fact, he never told her about Ginger White, period. His wife, Gloria, "did not know that we were friends until she (White) came out with this story."

He again denied having an affair and insisted he was just a good guy helping out an old friend who needed money to pay the bills. "My wife and I have talked about it and I have explained it to her," he told the paper. "My wife understands that I'm a soft-hearted giving person." As for whether he's dropping out: "You will know by next week." For White's very, very different take on their relationship, click here.
