Tell me of just about any senior leader working from the seventies through the nineties who did not navigate the blossoming feminist movement without hitting a few rocks. Unless someone comes out and accuses him of trading promotions for sex, then this is garbage.

Correction: A press conference was held, then when it was time for the reporting part, it was swept under the rug.

I am not sure the rats are smart enough to do this, but this would be a good strategy for Obama. He could give politico the so called facts knowing that the conservatives will blame Romney. The result is a split party i.e. Conservatives won’t turn out in general for Romney cuz they think Romney threw Cain under the bus. This totally helps Obama

Cain said he was ready for his “high tech lynching”. Didn’t he?

Herman Cain sounds off on race, a debate win, and the need to simplify government
Washington Examiner 5/5/11 Byron York

"They're going to come after me more viciously than they would a white candidate," Cain responded. "You're right. Clarence Thomas. And so, to use Clarence Thomas as an example, I'm ready for the same high-tech lynching that he went through -- for the good of this country." Cain smiled broadly. "I'm ready for the same high-tech lynching."

There's no doubt they will now "Thomas" Cain.

Cain needs to demand names, dates, times and corroborating witnesses.

Demand public disclosure of every salient fact. And, he needs to make that demand publicly.

Golleee!

How many have come forward with child supported by campaign funds?

For a party with a heavy duty proven record of this kind of behavior, I sense a serious case of cognitive dissonance.

You’re giving Rove way too much credit - I don’t think he really would gone to that much effort, because I don’t think it’s likely that Cain would get the top slot anyway. And while Rove may prefer another candidate (I’m not sure which one), I don’t think he really cares that much personally.

I would suspect this is the usual Dem attack. Last week, they tried to say Cain wasn’t “really” black, and now they’re going to try to stir up women against him. He’s not even my favorite candidate, but I think this is plain ridiculous, and unless (God forbid) some evidence emerges, I think it won’t go beyond tomorrow’s news cycle.

However, as one of the Dem harpies said, it’s not the truthfulness of the charge that matters, it’s the seriousness of the charge. In other words, that’s what sticks in people’s minds.

Of course, if a Dem did something like that, even if there were 20 women lined up in a row with signed affadavits, nobody would care.

. . and Obama gets a pass. Did he ever date? Did he ever say *$@c* in front of a female? Has any female ever come forth saying, “Yeah, Obama and I were debate partners, (or some such) and we dated awhile.”

Ha! No one would be dumb enough to come forward. The press would roast them alive and investigate every moment of their lives. Their careers would be ruined and their lives destroyed.

Sounds to me like another reason to vote for Cain. If the libs are so scared that they had to dig up a couple of paid whores, then he must be better than I thought.

Wow, the media is really lucky when it comes to Conservatives. Frontrunner for a month and they find 2 women that said Cain made them uncomfortable 2o years ago. They have yet to find anyone who knew Obama, associated with him, any ex-girlfriends, benefactors, school records, etc... 4 years later all they have is a nine layer electronic map of BC for a guy with multiple SS #s and nobody wants to know any more.

Should be an enhancement for Dem voters. They seem to love men with sexual charges to their credit.

This is Politico--totally irrelevant.

When a majority of the general public gets smart enough to ignore Plitico and all the far left blogs, there will be mass outbreaks of apoplexy as Dems literally go up in smoke.

State controlled un-American media (SCUM) and U.S. Senate dig into Herman Cain's past, discover crimes. Headline:

Democrats testify at Senate investigation
Herman Cain's Crimes
One Senator testified that Herman Cain has "cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at union workers, razed immigrant neighborhoods in fashion reminiscent of Ghengis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged poor areas of cities. . . ."

Just in case.. :)

well it's here already being "reported" in the MSM. SCUM BTW has been used here by a couple of FReepers and IMO is the most accurate description. But the last time I checked there were just three google hits.

I don’t doubt Politico’s story that a couple of female employees claimed harassment of some sort and quit after settling for 5-figure settlements (10,000-99,000).

However, in the low five figures even a bogus claim will often be paid to avoid the publicity of a lawsuit plus the costs of defending the matter.

I don’t even actually doubt that a couple of female employees didn’t like something Cain said or did to them, and that it might have had sexual overtones.

But until there are specific accusers actually accusing him of something that should disqualify him, such as attempted rape, inappropriate touching in the workplace, cornering them in a secluded place and attempting to make out with them, etc., I’m discounting this as two (or more) women who chose to hold Cain to the strictest standard of behavior, and who got paid off for doing so. And believe me, if we Republicans start only electing people who have always abided by some people’s strictest standard of behavior, we will be out of candidates and liberals will own the day (for the obvious reason that their standards of behavior are pretty much non-existent.)
