    Cain accuser wants to tell her side of story

    One of the women who accused GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment wants to tell her side of the story but is barred by a confidentiality agreement, her attorney in Washington said Tuesday.
    Lawyer Joel P. Bennett called on the National Restaurant Association, where the woman and Cain worked in the late 1990s, to release the woman from her written promise not to talk about the allegations or disparage the trade group.





    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. ”

    Lawyer: Cain accuser wants to tell her side of story

    One of the women who accused GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment wants to tell her side of the story but is barred by a confidentiality agreement, her attorney in Washington said Tuesday.

    Lawyer Joel P. Bennett called on the National Restaurant Association, where the woman and Cain worked in the late 1990s, to release the woman from her written promise not to talk about the allegations or disparage the trade group.

    She could be to Hermann Cain what Paula Jones was to Bill Clinton, but here is what I would really like to find out:

    1) Those who attacked Clinton over Paula Jones, before Monica Lewinsky broke - Are you going to attack Hermann Cain the same way, or is the fact that he is a Republican more important?

    2) Those who defended Clinton over Paula Jones, and claimed that Republicans were attacking his character - Are you going to defend Hermann Cain with the same vigor you defended Clinton, or does the fact that Cain is a Republican take precedence in your decision?

    Here's the deal - Either Cain committed sexual harassment or he didn't. Whether he did or not will be determined by the facts. Until then, I am really interested in seeing how many hypocrites, both Democratic and Republican, are members of Debate Politics.

    Watching the responses from some of our hyperpartisans on both sides is going to be very interesting.

    After originally defending Cain, I am now on the fence, and will wait for more information to come in before deciding whether to further defend him, or to jump on him and demand that he withdraw his nomination for President.... And yes, for the record, I was one of the very first to jump on Clinton, and demand his impeachment, once the facts in the Paula Jones case became clear to me, and I could no longer give him the benefit of the doubt, which is what I am giving Cain, at this time.

    Finally, I would advise the National Restaurant Association to lift the nondisclosure agreement, and allow the woman to talk. The alternative will be to make Cain look guilty of harassment, and the association guilty of a cover up, in the eyes of many, whether warranted or not.

    If he's guilty, I hope he suffers the consequences. If he's not, then I don't care. No, wait, I don't care already.

    I wish these things would just stay out of the news until somebody actually got convicted of something. It's not any of my ****ing business, alright?

    This story is irrelevant to me, I could think of much better reasons not to vote for Cain.

    This will always be a he-said/she-said whether or not she comes forward. If the NRA releases her from her confidentiality agreement, they're fools. If it makes a difference to you that there's a possibility he sexually harrassed someone 20-something years ago, don't vote for him.

    What we know about Clinton is that he sat on a couch with his sweatpants around his ankles playing with his junk, asked a security officer to send Ms Jones in, and then asked her to kiss his dick (as per Ms Lewinsky, that's Clintoneese for 'blow me'). Now...if Herman Cain did ANYTHING overtly sexual, he should be 'blown' off the radar...primarily because of his loud and absolute denial that he did anything inappropriate. Depends on what we are talking about.

    The thing is, it's a total non-issue. Not that sexual harassment doesn't matter, but those that want to vote for him have already decided that there's no way it happened. Most of the people who aren't going to vote for him decided not to vote for him before this.

    It'll swing maybe 1%. That's being generous.

    Well, there is actually another twist to the story. Her lawyer claims that, since Cain has already come out and pretty much called her a liar, that in itself violates the confidentiality agreement.

    I do have a question for you. Did you use a similar argument in the Bill Clinton-Paula Jones scandal, that since it was old news it didn't matter? Just asking.
