    Scenario 2:
    Hermann Cain has never sexually harassed anyone, but his political rivals found numerous women from his past who have an axe to grind and are therefore willing to make false accusations against him.
    Scenario 3:
    Hermann Cain is guilty of minor sexual jabs that could be seen as inappropriate, but that would be overlooked in most workplaces. However, his political rivals have greatly exaggerated them in an attempt to bring him down.

    I'm not being sarcastic with any of these possibilities. Vote for which one you think is most likely true.
    The scenario I see is that its election time and opponents are desperate. Its the Clarence Thomas nomination all over again. Whaa we do not like viable black conservatives or viable alleged black conservatives so make up accusations of sexual misconduct against them. I suspect though it might mostly be another republican trying to push these sexual allegations. Because if the allegations were actually true then these allegations would benefit republican primary opponents more than they would Obama. It would be more in the interest of Obama supporters to wait until Cain got the nomination and then like a month or two prior to the main election release the allegations. When stories get old voters lose interests in those stories as well as any outrage they had at the time.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    that the current complainer has two bankruptcy filings, and hired a scum bag like Gloria Alred is rather fishy
    What does filing for bankruptcy have to do with Cain exploring under her skirt while she was applying for employment?

    Probably not directly racially motivated, but certainly politically motivated. If the Democrats can't discredit Cain so that a non-black Republican candidate runs, they lose all of their racial juice that got Obama elected in the first place.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Scenario 4

    In the election picture it doesnt matter if they are true or not because he was never a serious candidate.

    It doesn't matter whether the accusations or true or not if they succeed in destroying his candidacy. And I see in this thread that at least one person assumes that the hand-up-the-skirt account is fact. The woman, while referring to her notes, stated that this is what happened. She said/he said. Doesn't matter whether it's true if people accept that it is.

    but like I already said you have to start with domino number ONE

    his candidacy doesnt matter because he isnt a serious candidate and was never going to be president

    Herman Cain in my opinion has no chance against Obama. Romney and Gingrich offer stronger opposition especially in debates and established contacts. Why, really, does anyone think itís the Demís going after Cain?

    I think we just dont know. The first two...I would guess...guess...that something happened that was relatively benign, the NRA leadership felt it would be best to toss out a token payment, and whatever happened to the two individuals was insignificant enough to them that they signed off on a pretty small scale settlement. The latest to come out? Anytime someone shows up with Gloria Allred at her side, she blows her credibility before she even opens her mouth.

    At this point I dont care. My problem isnt with the allegations or even the level/severity. Cain lost me on this issue when he came and said he didnt know anything about any of this. Sorry...just not believable and not credible.

    I would say 3, but seriously a few months ago I told one girl at work she had a nice fat ass (in a good way). If I told certain other girls the same thing that would have been sexual harassment, I would have gotten fired. I would say it is something like that.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and thatís crazy." -Reagan

    - A fifth one? Either he's was very active, and/or some are coming out of the woodwork and making stuff up for their own personal gain.
    I think you are the only person who believes her(sharon) to be credible, lol.
