” He’s put more than a million of his OWN money into pro life causes..”

I believe that is a myth.
The original LifeNews article describing Cain’s involvement in the million dollar ad buy for America’s PAC
was poorly constructed and ambiguous.
It implies that America’s PAC paid for the ads , but, describing it
as a “ Cain backed “ group could give the impression
that Cain was the major donor.

The America’s 527 PAC filing is here

The Republican Leadership Coalition contributed almost a million
to the PAC in 2004.

Cain’s name does not appear in the contributions ledger.
And I’m sure he would often mention a contribution of a million dollars if he had done so.

Cain did do voice overs for the pro life ads.
The expense side lists this :
A New Voice
825 Fairways Court
Stockbridge, GA 30281 $1,000
Spokesperson services 11/04/2004

A New Voice is the company owned by Gloria and Herman Cain.

But I wouldn’t hold it against him that he was paid to be their spokesperson. I presume he wouldn’t have done so if he didn’t believe in their message.

Thanks for the links, I tried to explain that (I think after you did, because I’m running behind in the reading), but didn’t include links.
