Ginger White details ‘casual affair’ with Cain on Good Morning America (video)

In an interview with Good Morning America on Wednesday, Ginger White, the woman who claims to have had a 13-year affair with GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain , detailed her story and said she was disappointed to hear Cain call her “troubled.”

White, who went public with her story on Monday, told George Stephanopoulos that it was “a very casual affair.” She “consistently” received gifts and money from Cain over the past two-and-a-half years, but cautioned that the relationship was “not sex for cash.”

After White went public with her story Monday, Cain began reassessing whether or not to stay in the presidential race. White’s story comes on the heels of sexual harassment allegations against the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO from four women. Later Tuesday, however, Cain’s tone turned defiant, with him vowing to stay in the race and denying any relationship with White. On Wednesday, he planned to map a way forward in a speech from Dayton, Ohio.

In response to questions about proof of her affair with the GOP candidate, White said she did not keep records of their liasons.

“When you enter into a private relationship that you really do not care to share with the public, you really don’t enter into something like that holding on to receipts,” she said. “Holding on to gifts or if there were any notes or anything like that, to come out eventually and say, this is what happened and this is my proof.”

But White does remember traveling with Cain to Las Vegas for the 1997 boxing match in which Mike Tyson bit Evander Holyfield’s ear. That’s a concrete detail that will likely be further investigated.

“I honestly do not think he, in my opinion, would make a good president,” White said. But, she added, “this is not political.”

“Last night, I slept very well,” she said. “I'm not sure what's going on in his head.”
