Cain and Women: A former receptionist comes forward to dispute the allegations.
National Review Online ^ | November 22, 2011 2:30 P.M. | Robert Costa

Posted on 11/22/2011 4:24:02 PM PST by DBCJR

In 1983, Eva Vachal, then 24 years old, was hired by Godfather’s Pizza... By 1986, when Herman Cain became president of the company, she was the corporate receptionist.

For the next decade — Cain’s entire tenure at the Omaha-based firm — she continued in that position, answering phones and assisting executives with various projects.

Vachal worked closely with Cain...

She was close with other young women in the office, especially the assistants to Cain and the rest of the Godfather’s brass. They frequently huddled over lunch and coffee, discussing, among other things, their bosses, including the company’s gregarious chief executive.

And never once, she says, did a woman raise an eyebrow about Cain’s conduct... Vachal says that during her entire career at Godfather’s Pizza, she never heard about any improper conduct, harassment, or inappropriate behavior by Cain...

“He was a true gentleman, always.”

In this day and age, that is scandalous. Next thing you know, some woman will come forward having filed sexual harassment charges because he held a door for her.

He would obviously have wanted something for that, right?

The attack on Cain was and is a hatchet job. Everyone knows this. They are simply trying to throw garbage out there about the man in order to persuade people who get their info still from the MSM that he has this problem that does not exist.

He never has showed indications of it before...then all of a sudden at the NRA a woman made an allegation and it was found to be completely without merit. now, years and years later, that a political hack site digs that up and trumps it up with the help of a leftist ambulance chasing lawyer who digs up a woman with obvious historical financial and legal problems, backed up be a known fraud of a boyfriend, to make a sleazy, nasty allegation that gets aired as if though it was true and Cain has to prove his innocence.

Thankfully, I believe he is past it...but it is obvious why they did it.

For a lot of us, it only solidified our support.

They are afraid of Cain. As they tried with Clarence Thomas, they will do anything to keep him, his values, his message, and his abilities away from national politics.

Now they will file charges because the men, who have been to a ton of sexual harassment classes, don't make them feel good about themselves! (heavy eye roll)

This is a convoluted racism but racism nevertheless. One NBC (a more liberal venue) analyst referred to the “known black sexuality”, something often referred to in narratives of the 19th Century but rarely since. Liberals are racists. They believe minorities are inferior and dependent upon the government. They are little more than animals that must be herded and cared for. Conservatives, on the other hand, believe they can compete on a level playing field, that they can control their sexual passions, etc. Liberals are racists.

Bad picture to show.

Granted, WE see a young man with a big smile talking to a young lady.

“They” will say he is flirting with her.
His hand is there for a ‘reason’ and why is his other hand in his pocket?.

Think punch line “Only enough to win”.

Family site etc, will just leave it at that - I am sure it will be figured out.

I agree.

And I also take issue with the “spin” that Cain doesn't know about Lybia, because he didn't give a slick political non-answer to what most likely was a reporter looking for a “gotcha moment”.
The question was something to the effect-IIRC-
Do you agree or disagree with Obama’s policy on Lybia?
My own knee jerk reaction would have been:
Which policy are you talking about?

Nice pun. I was laughing at your behavior, Junior Moderator. I just think it is a hoot when, on a forum like this where we are supposedly all about freedom and reduced government control, we get these self-appointed police. How ironic?

Clarence Thomas had quite a few former female administrative employees express incredulity at Anita Hill’s charges. They vouched for his professional and gentlemanly manner.

Of course, these statements before the Senate Judiciary Committee came after the Hill sensationalism and were largely ignored by the MSM.

The Left is out to control us. If you do not believe that, you are way behind the curve and way too naive.

They MUST control labor, women, and blacks en bloc to control our government.

Someone must have put a ball gag in that Allred woman’s mouth. Haven’t heard a peep out of them. Hiring a good libel lawyer was a good move. I hope he takes them to the cleaners.

There was never any doubt in my mind of Herman Cain’s integrity. Whether his lack of experience in foreign policy can be overcome is another story. While important, it is not the be all to end all for me. Not this time. I want someone who can inspire and lead. For me, Cain is still that person. If he doesn’t make it to the top slot, I would hope he would be considered for the bottom half of the ticket. I wish him well.

Amen. They most certainly are. They are even worse. They are totalitarians and willing to deal out genopcide to acheive their aims. Never doubt it. An ideology which embraces the culutre of death and the abortion genocide...and pushes to make and keep it legal...if they thought they had the power, would commit that same genocide against any and all of us to achieve their ends.

Exactly. It’s just more of the same hatchet job...different tactic.

They know Cain represents the death knell to the liberal economic enslavement of the minorities and the absolute foundation for their “voting block” and therefore their power.

“He had a very teasing attitude,” Vachal recalls. “He reminded me of my father and me. We’re both little rascals; we love to tease people.”

“Once in a while, he would tell me how attractive I looked in my pantsuit, or whatever, but I liked it,” she says. “I get it. I understand teasing. I don’t mind compliments.”

Clearly sexual harrassment to a racist white woman.
