Herman Cain Has Not Met With His Wife Since The Ginger White Affair Story Broke

Scandal-besieged Republican candidate Herman Cain acknowledged he has yet to meet with his wife Gloria since the alleged 13-year affair with Ginger White was revealed. “Since I’ve been campaigning all week, I haven’t had an opportunity to sit down with her and walk through this with my wife and my family. I will do that when I get back home on Friday,” Cain said in a discussion with reporters at his New Hampshire campaign headquarters last night.

According to Steve Peoples from the Associated Press:

Cain said he had spoken to his wife only by phone since Monday, the day an Atlanta television station reported the woman’s accusation. Since then, aides have crafted a packed campaign schedule with stops in Ohio, New Hampshire, Tennessee, South Carolina and Georgia and prepared to launch a fresh round of TV ads in Iowa.
Cain was to sit down Thursday afternoon with the New Hampshire Union Leader, an influential conservative voice in the first-in-the-nation primary state. This evening the former pizza executive is scheduled to deliver a business-focused speech at Middle Tennessee State University.

How can Cain continue to go on campaigning during this public relations nightmare? With all of the numerous phone call logs between the former Godfather Pizza CEO and Ginger White (61 calls/texts, including one from 4 in the morning!) and the flirty book autograph, it seems as if Cain should have suspended his campaign and immediately gone home to his wife to settle this matter.
