    And we could possibly never know. Of one thing I am sure, all will claim it was the other guy.

    I'm pleased by the liberal response to this issue on this and other threads. This whole thing is a typical dirty trick no matter what did or didn't happen. We have better things to talk about in this country. I mean, this guy's big issue boils down to raising taxes for the vast majority of the country and cutting taxes for the rich. How he could get elected on that platform boggles my mind.
    Yes, it was a "dirty trick." But dirty tricks are, and always will be, a part of politics. Not being a politician hurt Cain in this regard as he clearly had no way of knowing how to manage this dirty trick once it hit him in the face. That's the part, I believe, which hurts Cain the most.

    That's a good point. It's interesting that Cain's lack of experience as an issue isn't hurting him, but as a reality still does. I'd prefer that it went both ways. It's inconceivable to me that a man who couldn't even win the Republican nomination for senator in 2004 could win the GOP Presidential nomination in 2012.

    the restaurant association released the woman from the confidentiality provision:
    ... “In 1999, I was retained by a female employee of the National Restaurant Association concerning several instances of sexual harassment by the then-CEO,” attorney Joel Bennett told reporters. “She made a complaint in good faith about a series of inappropriate behaviors and unwanted advances from the CEO. Those complaints were resolved in an agreement with her acceptance of a monetary settlement. She and her husband see no value in revisiting this matter now, nor in discussing the matter any further, publicly or privately. In fact, it would be extremely painful to do so. … My client stands by the complaint she made.”

    Bennett added that his client believed that this statement refuted the Republican presidential candidate’s claim that no sexual harassment had taken place.

    “I don’t remember the exact time period of the incidents, but it was over a period of a month or two as I recall. … We’re not going to get into what was physical and what was verbal. It qualified as sexual harassment in our opinion.” ...

    That too is the nature of politics. Kind of like how the GOP picked John McCain in 2008 -- 8 years after they rejected him in favor of Bush, arguably one of the worst presidents in U.S. history. Yet 8 years later, they picked the person who they felt wasn't as qualified in 2000.

    Go figger.

    This is the problem with politics. People are more focused on something that may have happened 20 years ago that has absolutely no bearing on anything today than they are what this man may or may not do if elected president. Anyone who is foolish enough to base their vote on an incident 20 years ago rather than Cains (or anyone running for election/reelection) stances on issues, ideas to fix this country ect should have their right to vote immediately revoked.

    I don't want to sound like a broken record, but again, to me, this isn't about what Cain did or didn't do years ago since we don't really know what happened ... it's about how he's handling it now, which is rather piss poor, IMHO.

    He shouldnt have to be addressing it now. Which I think is what he is trying to do. It is everyone else who can't let it go. I haven't decided if I like Cain or not, based on politics not ancient history, and now I can hear anything about what this man wants to do in office because all anyone can ask him about is whether or not he made some woman feel uncomfortable 20 years ago.

    oddly enough, Cain ran for President in 2000.

    Not knowing how to act like a politician is likely why his numbers were not affected by the story.
