Gloria Cain, the wife of embattled Republican presidential candidate, Herman Cain, is trying to save his sinking reputation and keep him in the run for the White House, despite the numerous women who came forward with accusations of sexual harassment and an affair.
Gloria Cain is now chairwoman of the Web site Women for Cain, which features testimonials from women supporting the candidate. The Web site was launched prior to Herman Cain's saying he would be making an announcement on Saturday regarding the future of his campaign, the New York Daily News reported.
Don't give up! a woman from Georgia wrote on the Web site. Unfortunately, this is the way of politics in America. If they can't legitimately challenge you face to face, they dig up every piece of dirt they can find.
And if they can't find it, like now, they make it up and twist the truth, she continued. I believe in you and the only reason this is happening is because you got them running scared. The more they attack, the more effective you are. Keep going - we're all behind you!
Another woman from Arizona wrote to the candidate, stating that she has never been involved in politics before but now has a car with Herman Cain stickers all over it.
I have printed up 1,000 flyers and handed them out with my husband, the fan continued. My neighbors have seen a HERMAN CAIN sign in my yard and said... If you and your husband like Mr Cain then he must be the best best Candidate!
An Atlanta business woman known as Ginger White came forward this week with allegations of a long-running affair with the candidate. She claims the affair ended when Herman Cain began running for president.
White on Thursday apologized to Gloria Cain, stating that she is deeply sorry for the pain that the alleged 13-year affair has caused Gloria Cain and her family.
According to the Women for Cain Web site, Herman Cain and his wife celebrated their 43rd wedding anniversary earlier this year. The couple shares two children and three grandchildren, it also noted.
Cain, a former CEO of Godfather Pizza has denied the allegations of sexual harassment and has said the allegation of an adulterous relationship with White is false.
However, the candidate has admitted to exchanging dozens of text messages with the single mother this fall. Herman Cain has also said he gave White money so she could take care of her bills, according to the Daily News.
Gloria Cain had no idea of the cash exchanges, but Herman Cain said he should have brought teh communication with White to his wife's attention.
He also didn't say how much money White was given.
I'm a soft-hearted person when it comes to that stuff, Cain told the Manchester Union-Leader, as reported by the Daily News. I have helped members of my church. I have helped members of my family.
Herman Cain on Thursday told Fox News' Sean Hannity that he is going to re-establish his character.
I've got to consider family considerations first, Cain said. When you have a bump in the road you reconsider and reevaluate. ... I am going to take that opportunity to reassess and reevaluate so we can decide: Where do we go from here?
