Republican presidential candidate Herman Cains campaign is accusing Politico of unsubstantiated personal attacks after the news outlet published a story Sunday night claiming two unnamed women made sexual harassment allegations against the candidate more than a decade ago.
Fearing the message of Herman Cain who is shaking up the political landscape in Washington, Inside the Beltway media have begun to launch unsubstantiated personal attacks on Cain, J.D. Gordon, Cains spokesman, said in a statement provided to The Daily Caller.
Gordon continued: Dredging up thinly sourced allegations stemming from Mr. Cains tenure as the Chief Executive Officer at the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, political trade press are now casting aspersions on his character and spreading rumors that never stood up to the facts.
I don’t call them “Pollutico” for nuthin.
you knew it was coming. after the Palin ordeal in 2008. I was waiting with a cringe...
I hope these reports someday feel unsafe covering Republican events, because they are setting themselves up for just that someday. and maybe some day soon
Herman had better get his counterattack machine working overtime.
How utterly predictable.
It’s a “gay” attack ~ these guys know that with a Baptist preacher in charge of things the “gay” revolution is going to go backwards. They’ll do and say anything. I wouldn’t put attempted assassinations out of the possibilities.
Clarence Thomas all over again. Why cant we just call them racists like they do everytime we bring up ANYTHING about BO’s past?
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their righteousness is from Me, Says the LORD.
Interesting that is was written by the same guy who falsely accused Palin of unsubstantiated rumors as well...
And with his customary smile, he has sucked Schieffer and Brokaw into the smoking ad debate and Planned Parenthood into the debate about the true history of Margaret Sanger. Now he is totally prepared and knows the outcome of this latest dustup that has all the markings of exposing all these people to look like the fools they actually are.
To your point, if they are unable to speak about these events, then they have grounds to be sued for violating this agreement. I hope it happens.
Every termination of a salary position includes language that bars people from talking about their departures.
Company I work for just cleared 22 positions. They were salary and got severance packages and these same agreements.
This is SOP for every company that lets people go.
Cain, who has been married to his wife Gloria for 43 years, did tell at least one campaign staffer this year about the possibility that claims of sexual harassment could surface, according to the aide. Cain, this person said, described a case in which he fired an employee in 1990s and the woman alleged sexual misconduct or harassment. Cain told the campaign staffer he had beaten the case and that the woman had paid for his legal fees. The aide had no further details.
If she had to pay his legal fees, just what do you think the result of the findings were?
"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned."
After that, "The View."
Clarence Thomas's "high-tech lynching" happened twenty years ago, so many voters are too young to have learned its lessons.
Someone on politico made a good point — too early for Dems to come out w/ big guns like this ...
Was likely planted by a wing of the GOP instead.
