The Herman Cain and other recent incidents have turned on its head, the way this nation views matters of politics and sex..
While the allegations against Republican Cain and even Democratic party congressman Anthony Weiner are still “hot”, many on the political right and left are throwing blame across the respective aisles claiming one party has less family values than the other.

Despite the statement today that Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain would be reassessing his election campaign after another shocking allegation related to women in the past by Ginger White, Cain appears for now to be taking the road of fighting rather than quitting. In the statement, Cain said he is "not deterred" and the "this woman's story is completely false". However, he did not specifically isay he was absolutely staying in the race or not going to quit or withdraw from the race which could raise questions.
Nonetheless, here the statement from Cain and his campaign, sent via email Tuesday evening. Tell us what you think, below:

I must congratulate the Saints for a wonderful victory against the Giants. Keep it up!
