A woman who once famously claimed she had a 13-year affair with Herman Cain said Thursday she would testify under oath against him unless he withdraws his campaign for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board.
Ginger White of Atlanta said she is willing to even identify certain parts of Cain’s body to back up her accusations, which he has denied for years.
“It’s time for you to be held accountable for your actions,” White said at a press conference in Manhattan, flanked by celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred.
“Today more than ever, women are fighting back. We’re not going to back down, we’re not afraid.”
Cain, a former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and onetime Republican presidential nominee, is President Donald Trump’s top pick for a 14-year seat on the board of the central US bank.
But the 73-year-old is plagued by previous claims of sexual harassment and misconduct, including one from 2011 that he cheated on his wife with White.
White, a former TV presenter, was joined Thursday by Cain co-accuser Sharon Bialek, who has claimed Cain made unwanted advances toward her in the 1990s when he ran the National Restaurant Association.
