(Newser) – Ginger White has gone public with more details of her alleged 13-year affair with Herman Cain, and she makes it sound as exciting as a cheese pizza. White, a single mother of two, says she relied on Cain and other men to supplement her income because she wanted the best for her kids. “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 tells the Daily Beast.

"One day I said, ‘I need a little extra money because my daughter’s art supplies are so expensive,’" White says. “Herman said, ‘I will help with the rent, I will help with food, but it’s not my responsibility to get your kids through college—and you may have to get rid of your dog.' I said, ‘My dog?’ He said, ‘That’s an expense.' That’s when I knew he was very cold." White says Cain's arrogance in the face of sexual harassment allegations inspired her to come forward, and doing so has ruined her life. "I am not a bad person," she says. "I am a loving mother who has always wanted to make her own way and give her kids the best. I never wanted to take a handout, and I’ve said no more times than I said yes. I’ve said no more times than you can write down."

The way I see it is, these were two consenting adults who made the choice to do something that they knew to be imorrally wrong, but he wanted variety so bad and she wanted a sugar daddy so bad, that they went ahead and did it anyway. Anyone married in this day and age should expect this to happen. Marriage is not sacred anymore and therefore is just an emotion for many people. The vows mean nothing and there is no committment or obligation intended. It is what it is!

All in all, Ging ... as far as I'm concerned I know enough about you from your own story about carrying on a more-than-decade-long "affair" with a man you were certain was married. Skeeza I think it is perfectly fitting that you have revealed yourself in such a fashion considering that the skunk you were cheating with has offered himself as some sort of moral leader for the nation. The fact that he's the male equivalent of "skeeza" is important information for a public evaluating his suitability to become the President of the United States. Your internal thought processes AS you "skeeza'ed" ( Is that a construct I can use or not? Can one be said to "skeeze" or to have "skeezed? ) is of NO POSSIBLE INTEREST TO ANYONE not between your ... ears. Girl ... puh ... leeeeeeeeeze!!
