    Breaking news ..... an attorney for one of the accusers told the press his client doesn't want to come forward.

    I don't blame her, not after Anita Hill was publicly smeared by putting her career on the line to speak up.

    This is just general info I heard on the news today, for any others reading this who haven't already decided the females involved are greedy liars. Apparently some of the harassment occurred in front of others, and they aren't so bashful about discribing what they saw and heard. One specific incident described on the news is that several people have come forward to state that after a conference of some kind, several of the association employees were drinking and socializing until the wee hours. Apparently Cain had zeroed in on a low level staffer, and she was visibly uncomfortable with his attention. He went from blatant flirtation and off-color remarks, to repeatedly propositioning her. After she had refused several times to go to his room with him, he took hold of her arm and became insistant.

    Apparently she left the hotel bar alone, and nobody knows what happened after that. Those same informants told the newsroom that it wasn't the first time Cain had made inappropriate requests of females working for the association. She later received a severance package of $35,000 (one year's salary, which proves she was fairly low-level), and nother female employee with similar complaints received a severance package of $45,000... again, one year's salary. Both signed confidentiality agreements.

    I have to say, we have nothing beyond third-hand accounts and Cain's denials, yet some people are willing to immediately label these women as liars. They didn't ask to be put in the public eye. They have moved on, probably to new careers which they don't want ruined by a public political spectacle. The way they are being spoken about in the media, blogs and on forums like this prove that going public would be personal disaster for them. They are the ones being "lynched", and they can't legally speak in their own defense.

    You must be buying Cain's crap.

    His claim that all he said was "you are as tall as my wife" is pathetic as Congressman Larry Craig's lie he was just picking up toilet paper off the airport restroom.

    You stick with Herman. All the way.

    Not affected??


    It's been reported that two female employees accused Cain of making unwanted sexual advances in the 1990s, and they received financial payments to leave the trade association he headed at the time. Cain says he was falsely accused and never sexually harassed anyone. Do you think this is a serious matter, or not serious?
    • Serious: 39%

    • Not Serious: 55%

    Does this situation make you more likely to vote for Cain for president, less
    likely, or doesn't it make a difference in your vote?
    • More Likely: 4%

    • Less Likely: 23%

    • No Difference: 69%

    The damage has already been done. Cain has already been exposed as someone who is not ready for prime time.

    I just pointed out how the last democrat handled that when it happened to him.

    For the record: I did not approve of attacking Paula Jones.
    Well, good for you. I suppose we'd have to take your word for it now, since there is no way to verify that in any way.

    Also, that was simply a diversion since it totally and 100 % did not address the topic in any way.
    Again, if it is a diversion, then read your own words, you are diverting the thread, why?

    Well, to be fair, I don't think Cain ever had a real serious chance at winning the party nomination to begin with. But it is an indicator at just how vitriolic, and off message this Presidential campaign is bound to be concerning sticking to the issues.

    I guess we can thank Dear Leader for that as well....

    Politico’s Ben Smith and Jonathan Martin offer a story with perhaps an unsurprising headline: “Obama plan: Destroy Romney.” Team Obama sees Mitt Romney as the probable GOP nominee, and they won’t wait until the general election to offer attack lines. “Barack Obama’s aides and advisers are preparing to center the president’s reelection campaign on a ferocious personal assault on Mitt Romney’s character and business background.”

    But the anonymous strategists Politico interviewed don’t seem to remember the Gabrielle Giffords shooting in their usage of metaphor. "Unless things change and Obama can run on accomplishments, he will have to kill Romney," said a “prominent Democratic strategist aligned with the White House.”

    So, I guess we can see who will be diverting what according to Politico.
