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

    I honestly think that - aside from his marriage vows - Herman Cain did not do anything wrong with the Bialek woman until she objected and he mentioned the possibility of employment connected with where his hand had traveled. That is where he got into ethical trouble as far as harassment went. Up until that point, he was a man making a pass a a rather attractive woman who he had just had dinner with and was in a parked car with him. I am sure that same physical move happens thousands of times every day. To his credit, he stopped and then obeyed her request to drive her back. His ethical harassment problem is with the connection of the roaming hands to the possibility of employment.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    If this was the only incident involving this woman and he stopped when she asked him to...it is in no way, shape or form "harassment". Too many people mistake a single crude/rude/obnoxious comment for harassment.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Exactly. And, of course, we'll never know if he said that or not. All we know is that, apparently, she didn't get the job. She should've kept her mouth shut.

    He'd better not run for office anytime in the future, this is sexual harassment.

    If one has a large resource then settlements offer a very convenient way of quieting someone. Then if it ever comes out about the settlement one can simply say he was innocent and this was just the cheaper way to go, but I am innocent.

    When it is one's integrity I would think you would want to settle it for once and all and not just quiet it.

    In this country with a large resource you have a pretty good chance of getting off the hook by quieting them with a cash buyout or getting a OJ Simpson defense attorney team.

    Hate her or love her, unlike sleazy junk food dorks like cain, she performs a valuable service to the country. People like her protect the sexual freedoms of women

    The relentless zeal of attorneys/prosecutors who pursue sexual harrassment charges is a big reason why girls can go out in public and dress up any way they like without fear of being raped because "she asked for it."
