    Good to see that the Conservative persecution complex is still intact.

    I guess if you call impeachment a free pass, then Clinton got one. Otherwise, I'd be inclined to say not so much.

    (Before a bunch of ill-informed Cons start in with "He wasn't impeached," he was. "Impeachment" is the accusation. Removal from office is something else.)

I would like to know if the stories' details are similar. Several women who do not know each other but are reporting very similar actions over a long span of time is a 'he's guilty' slam-dunk in my book.
    What "very similar actions"? One lady said that Cain made a reference to her height that supposedly had a sexual tone to it because of the height at which he held his hand, and this lady said Cain tried to push her head into his crotch and reached under her clothing to touch her genitals. That doesn't seem at all similar to me, really. One seems more likely to be a misunderstood joke, while the other is borderline sexual assault. The details of the other two women have not (according to all articles I've read) been released.

    But doesn't that give you at least a little pause? For all of people's attempts to bring Bill Clinton into this, by all accounts Monica Lewinsky was a willing participant. That is different right there. Unless this person said "Herman, I love it when you push my head into your crotch and grope me."

    while the other is borderline sexual assault.
    If indeed that's what happened, I'd call it more than "borderline."

    I'm not comparing Clinton to Cain, so while I get your point, it isn't really relevant to what I was saying. Cain's issues are Cain's issues, but I can't tar and feather the guy over 14 year old accusations (especially accusations as extreme as lucky lady #4). It makes no sense to me why a woman in #4's position wouldn't have said something right then and there. The president of the NRA (not guns) is high profile enough that it would have made news if she'd started the witch hunt in the 90s, especially since he was a successful black man, and plenty of racist tards would have been glad to lead the charge. Waiting 14 years to come out with such serious charges against him seems....fishy.

    I mentioned them in the last sentence: "The details of the other two women have not (according to the articles I've read) been released." Being paid off, though, does not indicate guilt in any sense. Most large organizations will settle a claim like this (or accident claims, injury claims, etc) rather than take it to court. If they settle, they can usually control the flow of information and limit the exorbitant payouts that juries often grant in a civil trial scenario. It makes more sense from a business stand point to offer money in exchange for dropping the issue.

    I can tell you this, though: If I'm legitimately harassed and made to feel uncomfortable I'm not settling for a year's salary.

    Now there are accusations that he wanted others to do the same to him.

    Frankly, in the absence of any damning evidence against the accuser, I believe her, based solely on cain's lack of character as demonstrated by his profession.

    It's true that the amount of the payoff would demonstrate the credibility of the accusations, but that amount hasn't been made public.

    The first part of your post is just a bunch of ridiculous nonsense. The man created success where failure had existed before, successfully completed a fairly challenging degree program at a pretty damned good school (even though his parents could ill afford to help him gain an education, and EOE/AA hadn't been pushed through quite yet), and served in the military. You wanna go all crazy-critical over the fact that he found success in the fast food industry? One of the largest employing bodies in the entire world? Where most high school kids get their start?
