” Hes 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 Americas 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 http://www.campaignmoney.com/political/527/americas_pac.asp
The Republican Leadership Coalition contributed almost a million
to the PAC in 2004.
Cains 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.
