    the only reason you are arguing is that I refuse to call a single severe incident harassment...that is assault. you diminish the severity of the event by calling it harassment. If you commit a "severe" behavior are the cops going to charge you with harassment or are they going to charge you with assault?


    compare: you get shot in the arm with a 22 you have a gunshot wound. you get your head blown off with a M2, you do not have a gunshot wound. even though you were shot with a gun, the severity of the damage makes calling it a wound idiotic

    Umm, the information came from the same guy.

    The article I cut & pasted from was quoting Joel Bennett, the plaintiff's attorney. In that article, he incorrectly stated that Cain was still the president of the NRA at the time of the settlement.

    The article you cut & pasted from was was also quoting Joel Bennett, the plaintiff's attorney. In that article, he stated the settlement was signed in September, 1999.

    But the source from both our articles was the same guy, Joel Bennett, the plaintiff's attorney. I relied on what he said in the article I posted from, so I was wrong.

    But it was rather amusing watching you criticize me for relying on statements from the the plaintiff's attorney even as you were relying on statements from the plaintiff's attorney.

    Ahh, I see. You have your own definition for "sexual harassment."

    Ok, that explains it.

    Generally, for a case to hold, doesn't there need to be a pattern?

    yeah, that's what shiek refuses to accept. he is caught up in a technicality of someone's online definition.


    take me to court for making a single "hey baby, nice rack" comment and see how long it takes for the judge to laugh in your face.

    Yes, there's your made up definition and then there's the definition on equalrights.org

    A single incident is probably not sexual harassment unless it is severe. ~ equalrights.org

    Perhaps you prefer the definition from eeoc.gov?

    Although the law doesn’t prohibit simple teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that are not very serious, harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision (such as the victim being fired or demoted). ~ eeoc.gov

    You certainly are addicted to strawman arguments, I'll grant you that. No one, including myself, ever claimed a single "he baby, nice rack" comment was a severe incident.

    Scroll down to "The Reasonable Person Standard" for mention of a "repeated pattern."

    What has been reported also does not prove Cain is lying or did what he is accused of.

    I am not a Cain supporter, I do have a question, Bill Clinton survived the sh claims, what makes this different?
    Some victims of incest let it fester a lifetime...Im surprised you dont know that occurs...and the difference between Clinton and Cain is that at least clintons was consensual....but I dont condone what clinton did one iota....that was then this is now...
    To think cain didnt do any of this...you have to call 5 women utter total liars...One more thing Clinton like Cain called all the women liars too...even Monica
