I can’t tell you how shocked I was to read that Ginger White, who alleges a 13-year affair with Herman Cain, “has [a] history of financial, business difficulties” [news story, Nov. 30]. She has been unemployed, sued by a former business partner and the recipient of numerous eviction notices. Why, this means she’s no better than the 13.9 million other unemployed people in this country. She’s no better than American Airlines, which just filed for bankruptcy, or Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, BearStearns, and Lehman Brothers, which also have had “financial difficulties” and haven’t always been able to meet their financial obligations. Or no better than the United States, which has had its credit rating reduced and is threatened with further reductions. Or Greece, or Italy, or Ireland. This is indeed terrible company to be associated with.
