Cain suspends then quits

Businessman and radio talk show host Herman Cain has withdrawn from the race to be the GOP's presidential nominee. With deepening revelations concerning his extra-marital conduct the former ballistics worker initially suspended his campaign but then promptly abandoned it all together. Told you this would happen! (self-indulgent tone intended)

Cain met with his wife of 43 years, Gloria, after allegations of a 13 year affair began to surface. Subsequently, reports surfaced that they were distant from each other and were living in separate houses. Herman down, Newt to go!
