    Not sure who insisted on confidentuality as it realtes to keeping it closed presently. There are reasons both would like the details not made public, both legit and cya reasons. Without seeing the evidence, we can't be 100% sure we're not wrong in our assumptions.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    usually - tho not always - the side making the payout is also the side seeking to cloak any discussion of the events which precipitated the payout

    That is quite possible. Likely even. And part of what I was suggesting.

    It is just frustrating that Herman Cain is going around bad-mouthing the two complainants, and my client is blocked by a confidentiality agreement,” Bennett said. “The National Restaurant Association ought to release them and allow them to respond. ”
    waaaah, shoulda thought about that before they took the money. I bet they weren't frustrated when they were cashing that check.

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

    Maybe Im missing it...but who are these people? Yes...people are talking about allegations, but have these individuals even been named? When they say they want to clear their name...doesnt that imply their name is actually out there being besmirched?

    That is an aside. At this point I think that everything should come out (and no...she shouldnt have to pay back the hush money unless she was the one responsible for breaking the story).

    Usually the side making the payment understands the legal system. They get that it is more affordable to pay a 20k settlement than to pay 120k to go to court and 'win.' We see similar actions in the med community regularly.

    and if that same scenario is true in this instance, where there was no actual wrong doing, then there should be no legitimate resistance to allowing the alleging party to express her version of the story

    that may even result without cain's and the restaurant association's consent. seems ole raisin may have violated the confidentiality agreement the other day when he was presenting his version of what happened

    all of this indicates that cain is a simpleton. nowhere has he demonstrated presidential mettle, as is clearly evidenced by his "handling" of this matter

    sorry, but the alleging party gave up her right to express her version when she cashed the check. If she wants to change her mind and talk now...give the money back.

    Where are you getting your information that Cain signed a confidentiality agreement? I think we'll find that the NRA and the lady signed one. So. he has no confidentiality agreement to violate. Unless someone can provide a link showing that he signed one...

    from what i have read, the agreement has nothing to do with Cain. He wasnt the respondent and isnt involved in any type of settlement.

    I dont care about the event. Whatever happened was obviously benign. What I do care about is his response. If he has been dishonest then it should be curtains for him. That being said...it isnt that big a deal to me since I wont be voting for him one way or the other.
