It seems Herman Cain has finally had some GOP oppo research catch up to him, regardless of his campaign's claim that this is just the "liberal" media out to get him. I'm just curious whether we'll ever find out if it was Mitt Romney or Rick Perry's
It seems Herman Cain has finally had some GOP oppo research catch up to him, regardless of his campaign's claim that this is just the "liberal" media out to get him. I'm just curious whether we'll ever find out if it was Mitt Romney or Rick Perry's camp that put this out there since they're the two most likely suspects IMO.
Herman Cain just became the latest politician to face sexual allegations that could undermine his surging career.
Poiltico went up Sunday with a blockbuster story of Cain’s time as president of the National Restaurant Association, the industry trade group that was Cain’s first foray into the Washington political scene.
Politico reports “at least two” women working at the NRA when Cain ran it “complained to colleagues and senior association officials about inappropriate behavior” by the man who is now the national frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination.
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.
Details on the incidents described in Politico include “conversations allegedly filled with innuendo or personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature” and “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.”
As they noted, the Cain campaign declined to answer questions posed to them by Politico. They did however respond to Geraldo Rivera on Fox, with some shall we say, fairly awful results.
My guess is we can now finally stick a fork in the Herman Cain presidential campaign that wasn't looking all that serious in the first place to me. The man looked like he was a whole lot more interested in selling his book and auditioning for a spot on Fox "News" as we've seen from other grifters like Palin and Gingrich than making any real effort to ever actually try to win the nomination, even though he was taking off in the polls.
