    The women complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Cain that made them angry and uncomfortable, the sources said, and they signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them financial payouts to leave the association. The agreements also included language that bars the women from talking about their departures.
    This shouldn't matter, but sadly, I suspect it will to many.

    It is extremely whiney though to blame it on some "liberal media" smear campaign. The media treats everybody like this. Get off your cross Herman....

    Well, let's wait and see what comes of it. I agree with what you said about Liberals that defended Clinton, but from what I've seen the converse is true of a lot of Conservatives -- the same people who wanted to crucify Clinton are defending Cain. Of course, they also defended Clarence Thomas no matter what.

    I think it might have something to do with a person's political affiliations. It's just a hunch, though...

    I think it's more likely Romney or Perry. Unless you have some proof to back up your claim, which I doubt.

    The Libbos aren't going to sit back and let some uppity nigger steal their spotlight. Not to mention the political clout they will lose, if Herman Cain wins the Republican nomination.

    Let's face it folks, Liberalism is already on the ropes. A black Republican winning the presidential nomination will only serve to drive another nail in the coffin.

    You know for someone who hates people bringing up race, you certainly do all you ****ing can to keep it front and centre (when it benefits you of course).

    These allegations have absolutely nothing to ****ing do with the fact that he's black. And whenever these kinds of allegations are made, everyone who supports that person acts like their person is being skewered, when in one to two weeks we'll be talking about something completely different and it wouldn't have mattered anyway.

    I have little doubt this incident reduces his actual chances of getting elected in any way, shape or form.

    It's difficult for black Republicans to get elected to the House of Representatives. That requires a district to elect them and there have been only 5 over the last 100 years. It's even more difficult for black Republicans to get elected to the Senate. That requires a state to elect them and there has been only 1 over the last 100 years. You're dreaming if you think a black Republican can get enough states to vote for them to be elected president.

    Republicans just don't elect blacks to federal office. At least not so much since the Reconstruction era.

    Well all us left wingers need to think only positive thoughts about Cain and hope that he does win that GOP nomination. I am also thinking only positive thoughts that this coming February will see average daily temperatures of at least 70 degrees here in Michigan.

    I wonder which one has a more realistic chance of achieving fact?

    Gutsy post. I would have proof but the media wouldn't.

    No proof, just gut instinct. BO won his state seat in IL by digging into his opponent's legal records.

    My point was that BO's involvement would make this story more interesting. So far all we have are vague allegations and talk of money being exchanged. There's not even so much as a Coke can.
