Herman Cain’s alleged mistress is
talking, and it’s not good for Cain.

grocery story, or what she would do the following
day. Cain says he had a friendship with White that
his wife knew nothing about. He says he did give

involved. Did White start talking when the money
stopped coming in? Hmmmmmmmmm!
