Herman Cain was scheduled to appear on CNN's "The Situation Room" this afternoon to talk about his "9-9-9" tax plan and his new, six-minute animated video, "9-9-9: The Movie," which advocates for his alternative to the "dorky mechanical monster" that he says symbolizes the federal tax code.
But the conversation quickly detoured when Cain told CNN that a woman, later identified as Ginger White, would soon go public with claims that she had a thirteen-year affair with Cain.
“This particular individual...is gonna accuse me of an affair for an extended period of time,” Cain told Blitzer. “I don’t want to specify, because I don’t know what’s in the story."
"I just wanted to give you a heads up, and your audience a heads up. Here we go again," he said.
Cain admitted to knowing White but denied an affair, and told Blitzer he wasn't sure if the latest accusations would lead him to abandon his bid for the White House. "I would make that decision depending on the circumstances and how it is impacting my wife and my family," he said.
