    Re: Sexual harassment claims against Herman Cain

    It doesn't change my opinion of him a lot because of the accusations.

    What does make me like him even less is the fact that in two days, he gave about sixteen different answers to the questions.

    He didn't do it. Then he admits to remembering one settlement, but can't remember if he signed it at the time. The the charges are salacious. Then...blah blah blah.

    His campaign is so disorganized. Anyone knows that when controversy strikes, you have to have a solid response (preferably a truthful one) and put the issue to rest.

    By being inconsistent, he made the issue even bigger. It just shows how utterly unprepared for this he truly is.

    Re: Sexual harassment claims against Herman Cain

    Before this info came out, I though Cain was a few tacos short of a combination plate. Now, I still think the same.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    why does it belong there when we are discussing the potential character flaw of a prospective presidential candidate?

    Since he isnt a serious candidate for president it has no impact on my views of his campaign.

    Re: Sexual harassment claims against Herman Cain

    First, the context: Everything I've heard about this has been through the filter of Fox News Radio and the various conservative talk shows on my local conservative talk radio station.


    Given that, I can't be sure that my information on and understanding of this situation is accurate.


    However, going only off that info, I would say that it appears to me as purely an attack against Cain, and that there is little or no substance to the accusations.

    Subject to change if I acquire info that contradicts that conclusion.


    Edit: I should add that I answered the poll question with "It changes my opinion a little." My reason for this is that if this story is as it appears - an attack on Cain - then it causes me to dislike his attackers for their underhanded tactics, and by extension, improves my opinion of him.

    Re: Sexual harassment claims against Herman Cain

    By coming forth, even anonymously, aren't these women putting their settlements in danger?

    Not that I am enamored with Cain, but... there is a part of me that says if you're going to say something, have the backbone to say it publicly, or shut up. If it is the settlement money that is keeping them anonymous, then pick one.
