Cain Says Wife Unaware of Accuser Ties

Thursday, 01 Dec 2011 05:22 PM

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain, facing allegations of marital infidelity, told a newspaper Thursday his wife did not know about his friendship with the Atlanta woman making the accusations.

Cain, who denies an affair, told the New Hampshire Union Leader his wife of 43 years was unaware of his ties and the financial help he gave to the woman.

"My wife did not know about it, and that was the revelation," Cain told the paper. "My wife found out about it when she went public with it."

The one-time Republican frontrunner says the decision rests with his wife, Gloria, about him remaining in the race for the Republican nomination to take on President Barack Obama in the November 2012 election.

Cain, who lives in Atlanta and was scheduled to campaign Thursday in New Hampshire and Tennessee, said Wednesday he would decide whether to continue his campaign after a face-to-face talk with his wife.

Ginger White alleged she had a 13-year affair with Cain in a television interview earlier this week and revealed cell phone records showing regular contact with him. Cain said she was contacting him about her financial troubles. (Reporting by Kim Dixon; Editing by Eric Walsh)
