Herman Cain Faces Yet Another Challenge: Talk About Ending His Run Starts Looming

Campaign staff for Herman Cain's once bright and nearly meteoric rise are battening down the hatches, expecting the coming announcement that the campaign has been terminated. If Cain does go ahead and plow through amid a new scandal, it will still spell job loss for a number of campaign staffers as budgeting woes hit them. A spokesman for the campaign has said it is not necessarily the latest in a string of sexually charged scandals that will rock Cain's efforts but rather money and support. The continued allegations are starting to take serious tolls on the Cain family and may force him to face the reality that if the can't earn the support of his family, he won't be able to ask the same from the nation.

On Monday, Cain was given information that Ginger White, described as an Atlanta businesswoman, was going to come forward and reveal details of what she called a long term sexual relationship. Unlike the women who had accused Cain of workplace sexual harassment, White was not employed by or with Cain at any point. Cain, who denied knowing any of the other women before reluctantly changing the story admitted knowing White from the very start, claiming the relationship was a long term friendship but nothing more.

White told the media that her relationship with Cain had ended nearly a year ago- roughly the same time that Cain was getting ready to make his initial announcement as a contender for the Republican presidential nomination. But, she said, she had contact with him as recently as September. She revealed that she has her phone records to prove her claims, showing an early morning phone call from Cain.

Cain's campaign was already reeling from four separate women, each charging him with sexual harassment during the 1990's when he was the head of the National Restaurant Association. Two of those women, Sharon Bialek and Karen Kraushaar have come forward to face Cain and the nation while the other two have opted to remain anonymous.

Lin Wood, Cain's attorney, attacked the release of the affair allegation saying that there was a serious difference between the charges of sexual harassment against someone in a position of authority and a supposedly consensual affair between two adults. Cain denies a sexual relationship with White and maintains that nothing ever happened between any of the other women as well.

Cain was due to give a speech in Michigan and when asked, avoided questions regarding to Ginger White or whether he was going to end his campaign run.
