Cain Sexual Harrassment?
Me

Posted on 11/01/2011 3:32:54 AM PDT by MacMattico

I'm just watching the interview with Herman Cain on Greta. If I understand him right, he says the only women of the two he even remembers by name worked in the government/PAC dept. of the restaurant association.

Interesting. I don't know, but wondering-- would she be in a position to represent restaurant and service workers unions interests in the PAC? Cain said the first woman was dismissed and the accusations were deemed "baseless" and that she left with what was the equivalent of her owed severance package .

Now this women shows up and Cain says he doesn't even believe there was any harassment case filed. I wonder who this woman is and where she works now?

The man has worked over 40 years at many positions where he would interact with people daily and until I see a pattern of bad behavior I don't believe it.

True. Sex addicts who never get caught never stop. Heck, even those who do get caught seldom stop.

Trying to remember, being accused of doing something ‘questionable’ in the workplace, for which I was innocent.

It happened, but it’s very difficult to recall all the pertinent details....other than the embarrassment and sense of betrayal.

Most of my bad experiences were based on mis-communication with males and jealousy/envy with females. The price one pays for being really hot and super intelligent;) LOL!

We knew this was going to happen.
I am still going to vote for him if he survives.
Clinton had sexual harassment charges and the liberal media made the women into the perpetrators.
This has got to stop. When are we going to stop the madness and stand up for what we believe in?
We are the only group that sits there and eats it's own while the left is snickering. This time we have established Republicans in along with the Democrats laughing right along.
If we don't rally behind someone this country is doomed and THEY know it.

It was also noted that Politico gave the campaign the name of this second woman. If the Association was prepared for the second woman and HR sniffed out the bogus nature of her claims as well, she must have just been terminated with the usual severance and the upper office was never told because it never was more than an HR issue.

I would say that both knew each other and collaborated to bring this to Politico. It is an especially incestuous circle socially in DC, kinda like the Harper Valley PTA song. Their names will be leaked out at sometime when they need more ammo in the next news cycle against Cain. It is reported the campaign received double the contributions yesterday than it had been receiving previously. With that news I would say we will learn their names by the end of the week because whoever is behind this has to turn up the heat, even if there is no gas, in a desperate effort to slow the Cain Train down.

Think about it, Rove is all over the place yesterday tying to further damage Cain. He is a political opportunist and as we know hasn’t had an original idea to call his own since taking credit for the 2000 election. I feel this “leak” was the doing of the unions and Democrats in DC because of the monumental threat Cain poses to the inside the beltway establishment. I don’t put it past anyone inside the beltway of collusion on a grand scale to take him out politically as a move of job security rather than political character assassination. Every bureaucrat now knows their job is on the line if Cain is elected President.

Here is what I think: the man has interacted with countless people at countless positions, and if you rmeembered every nuisance that tried to get in your way, you would never get anywhere. He has trusted and delegated people to handle the sort of nuisance suits that tag along/try to get a free ride off a person in power. Also, he knows enough to know that counsel has handled things and may have guidelines on what one can or cannot say regarding Human Resources decisions. When bothered by some nuisance he knows is frivilous, he has often told someone: “handle it.” He is looking forward, not back.

This is sounding more like a couple disgruntled former employees who didn`t get positions or pay they wanted and were terminated. And now`s their chance to stick it to the old boss.

***the man has interacted with countless people at countless positions***

Correct: A self-made black conservative man - who judges others by his own sense of integrity. It’s not naive to expect that the people you work with and meet are as good and decent as yourself. But it can be fatal when you’re wrong.

In the 1990s the Feminist movement was on a witch-hunt. Even complimenting a woman on her dress was considered harassment.

I TRUST Cain.

I am just glad that Anthony Weiner didn’t do something horrible like this. :)

I'm betting they got fired for more than just their accusations. They were probably problem employees who didn't get along with others, and the company offered them a severance package, rather than firing them outright.

Cain Sexual Harrassment?

In an era of political correctness (created by liberal scum to control speech and incite fear in anyone who disagrees with their perverted world view), where a man can be fired for mentioning the central point of a Seinfeld episode, I’ll side with Herman Cain.

I know I always feel threatened when I discover I’m the same height as my boss’s wife!

True enough.

These days most women who act out with the malicious and unsubstantiated "sexual harassment charges are correctly viewed as mentally ill.

The higher levels of management used to go along with these ol' gals and that created a sort of reign of terror.

The Washington Post saw both Juan Williams and Richard Cohen charged by women on the operations side ~ who they likely never worked with professionally. Yet, internal review people held both of them to be guilty ~ guilty ~ guilty ~ guilty.

You don't see that so much anymore.

I saw a case once where a woman who'd had relations with a fellow manager several hundred times convinced management to give her a promotion and a relocation.

The top boss making the decision was, of course, a mind-numbed, robot-like, knee-jerk Leftwingtard WOMAN!

All of this created a long term problem for women as managers ~ to wit, none of them can ever be trusted to be rational, and your female co-workers should NEVER be allowed into personal off-duty conversations with "the guys".

Obviously that's not true in all cases but who wants to take a chance.

I sent him money last night. The entire point of this attack is to cut off support.

Conservative black man being accused of sexual harrassment that happened years ago but was never reported until now.

Why are we discussing Clarence Thomas?

Some liberal chick with an axe to grind makes up a story (with NO evidence whatsoever) and the media falls all over themselves to lynch the man “responsible”.

Clinton left a stain in the white house (and on the dress) and they say no big deal. I say we should prosecute NO sexual harrassment charges of any sort until clinton is charged and convicted. If he’s above the law then the law is invalid.

Liberalism is a mental disease

Liberals have sexualized every aspect of our society and culture then they create a crime whereby a man can be guilty for jsut looking at to talking to a woman. Liberal have insisted that men and women are the same and then make it a crime for a man to say things to a woman that he might say to a man, such as a joke.

Yep, in the early 90s I was a National Sales VP for a company and HP was one of our re-sellers and I was making the rounds of sales districts.

Somewhere in Ohio, a 8 month pregnant woman {an HP employee, and at an HP office} and I were smoking {back then there were designated rooms for smokers} and talking about what a bad habit smoking was.

I remarked that since she was pregnant that there were at least two reasons that she shouldn't be smoking.

The woman brought sexual harassment charges against me.

My company had to get an outside legal firm involved {they didn't want to upset HP by using our internal lawyers} and it cost tens of thousands for legal fees and a sixty thousand dollar settlement and not one thing sexual was ever done, said, inferred, implied, suggested or even thought.

This pregnant woman was as ugly as a mud fence and looking at her and thinking anything sexual was never close to my mind.

It was way cheaper to pay and today I don't know her name, which city I was in, and if I stated a year I may be wrong on the year.

Time distorts everybody's memory and 15 years ago is a long time.

I am over this non-story. It is so easy in today’s world of “sue anyone over anything”. Have seen many cases of sexual harassment or sexual discrimination with most of them being bogus charges. Once the charges are waged, if the case is not settled out, then that employee almost becomes an untouchable.

Much ado about nothing.

Truth be told with my sarcastic and bawdy sense of humor I should have been reported many times over - but people knew it was humor not a come-on.

And I am a woman that worked in a field of 99% men - Military History Tours.
