Cain's lawyer demands records from accuser

An attorney for Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has demanded cell phone records from an Atlanta businesswoman accusing Cain of an extramarital affair.

Cain attorney Lin Wood sent a letter Wednesday to a lawyer representing Ginger White asking that Cain's team be provided with cell phone records showing calls and text messages between White and Cain.

Wood said Cain wants those phone records, among other documents, so he can examine them for their authenticity and content.

In TV interviews, White has accused Cain of carrying on a 13-year affair that she said ended shortly before Cain ran for president. Cain has called the allegations "completely false" and has labeled White as "troubled" in a message to his supporters.
