    Ok, so you ask me a question that I thought that you wanted to discuss, and then I get this type of dismissive crap back as a response. So you really didn't want an answer, just an opening to get in some inane, sarcastic one liner eh? Talk to the hand.

    Nonetheless, not one but two cash settlements for sexual harassment is hardly baseless accusations.
    Settlements mean nothing other than the legal dept. decided that it was cheaper to settle than litigate. BTW, was anyone charged? Convicted? Aren't those the bars set largely by libs when these things come up?

    Re: Lawyer: Cain accuser wants to tell her side of story

    The crux of the matter is that the people who are likely to vote for Cain have to make a decision either to ignore these allegations, refuse to believe them or move on to another candidate. Let's not kid ourselves, there is some truth to these allegations. He was a bit of a cad and tried to get a little nookie. How unusual for a man. No not really. We already know this is not an indication that you can't make a good president (See Kennedy and Clinton and most likely a few others). I don't like the complete hypocrisy of many in the media who excused and dismissed what Bill Clinton did while speaking with moral outrage over what Cain is accused of doing. But that is politics. Cain doesn't have the kind of support in the media and spinmeisters that Clinton had so I am going to be very surprised if he weathers the storm. If the money dries up he is done. I never jumped on the Cain bandwagon but I am always intrigued by someone who is not the usual career politician and lawyer. I had hope for him as the process continued. If he were a strong candidate, if I thought he was the best thing for the country, right now, I would still vote for him.

    I don't consider her story to be sexual harrassment. She wasn't an employee of the company any longer. She was out on a date. Does every guy who makes a pass get to have accusations of sexual harrassment thrown at him later? If he didn't say, "You want a job, don'tcha?" there was absolutely nothing wrong with this encounter. If he did say that, then, well, he's smarmy. And who knows if he said that? We never will...but she'll get her 15 minutes.

    This lady should've kept her mouth shut. She looks the fool.

    as long as he wasn't her employer and he didn't say "You want to KEEP your job, don'tcha?" all he was doing was "negotiating" sure, it's smarmy but it isn't illegal.

    especially coming out with gloria allred. really?

    and the script reads.... odd to me. never discounting the tendency of powerful men to assume they are above consequences, it strikes me as way too crude... like a feminist script of how these moments should go.

    I remain unconvinced.

    Gloria Allred only circles these trash heaps when there is something to pick...I smell a book deal on the chance that Cain goes further.
