DUNWOODY, Ga.,None - A Dunwoody woman is speaking out to Channel 2 Action News after she said she had an
off-and-on affair with presidential hopeful Herman Cain over the course of 13 years.
Ginger White spoke to Channel 2's Amy Napier Viteri outside her Dunwoody apartment Monday night.
White said the main thing she wants people to know is she never intended for this story to hurt anyone and she felt like she had no choice but to come forward.
"My heart goes out to many people. This was not something that I wanted, to hurt anyone, not a fun, not a fun thing," White said.
Vitieri asked White why she decided to come forward with her story about an affair with Cain now.
"There were threats of people coming out with their version, not that any version was very pretty. But I thought it was important to at least come out with my story, my side of the story," White said.
White said she's sharing details of something she's not proud of, which has been hard on her family.
She also said she's sorry for any pain the story has caused Cain's family.
Cain is denying White's claims.
"He's saying that it was not a sexual relationship in response to
"Absolutely, and I can only imagine, I can't imagine him confirming. It's the name of the game I guess," White said.
White went on to say to anyone questioning her credibility that she has no reason to lie. She also said this was not something she wanted to do.
"I couldn't imagine anyone coming out and lying about this. Who would want this? It's really not been fun," White said.
According to Georgia court records, White had a series of judgments against her for not paying rent at apartments in the Atlanta area, including one as recent as this month.
In the past, White was accused of lying when a former business partner filed a libel suit against her, according to court records.
