“Why would a woman admit to such a thing?,” my husband asked me after hearing on the news that another woman came forward admitting to having a long-term affair with Herman Cain.
I don’t understand it either. I would be embarrassed and ashamed. I certainly wouldn’t want my children to know what I had done. But it seems that all these women who are making accusations have a few things in common: Single mother, lawsuits and bankruptcy. And those three things seem to be very attractive to men of power or just to Herman Cain.
What is more intriguing to me is that when former President Bill Clinton was being “serviced” by Monica Lewinsky while on the payroll of the taxpayers, it was perfectly fine. There was an outcry that the President could do what he wanted and that his sex life was none of our business.
I don’t know if the accusations against Cain are true or not. At this point in time, I’m waiting for the playing field to clear and we get down to the final two candidates before I make my decision in the voting booth. When it comes to voting next year, I will vote as best I can with my conscience and faith as my guide.
However, I always feel like I’m choosing between the lesser of two evils.
