    Two women accused Herman Cain of inappropriate behavior

    During Herman Cainís tenure as the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, at least two female employees complained to colleagues and senior association officials about inappropriate behavior by Cain, ultimately leaving their jobs at the trade group, multiple sources confirm to POLITICO.
    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.

    The desperation to find something to smear him with has hit new lows. It will be completely dismissed.

    Someone got mad at something I said to them when I worked at Dairy Queen in 1996. I should be fired from my teaching job!

    Rut roh. See that's the problem. Gotta' recruit and run candidates when they're much younger. They haven't shown what louses they can be yet.

    Not even close as a comparison and you obviously didnt read the article...let me show you some more

    In one case, POLITICO has seen documentation describing the allegations and showing that the restaurant association formally resolved the matter. Both women received separation packages that were in the five-figure range.

    On the details of Cain’s allegedly inappropriate behavior with the two women, POLITICO has a half-dozen sources shedding light on different aspects of the complaints.

    The sources — which include the recollections of close associates and other documentation — describe episodes that left the women upset and offended. These incidents include conversations allegedly filled with innuendo or personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature, taking place at hotels during conferences, at other officially sanctioned restaurant association events and at the association’s offices. There were also descriptions of physical gestures that were not overtly sexual but that made women who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable and that they regarded as improper in a professional relationship.

    We have already agreed that even if it did happen, sexual harrassment doesn't disqualify one from being president.

    Did what you say cause the Dairy Queen owners pay the person some money to keep quiet about what you said?


    If not I think what Cain probably said is rather more significant. Most organizations do not give payouts without a rather good reason
