In light of yet another woman stepping forward and claiming she had a 13-year affair with him, presidential candidate hopeful Herman Cain is "reassessing" whether or not he wishes to remain in the race.
According to the National Review, Cain denied the woman's allegations to his senior staff, explaining that she was just a friend of his and he was attempting to help her out financially because "she was out of work and destitute, desperate." He then announced, "that being said, obviously, this is cause for reassessment."
Cain went on to recount the number of assessments his campaign has undergone in the recent months, due to their "financial situation" and the previous allegations of affairs with other woman. "But our supporters, and even some folks that we didn’t have as supporters, they stood with us, and they showed it not only in terms of their verbal support, they showed it in terms of their dollars. Now, with this latest one, we have to do an assessment as to whether or not this is going to create too much of a cloud, in some people’s minds, as to whether or not they would be able to support us going forth."
He will make his final decision "over the next several days."
