Geraldo tried to pigeon hole Gordon, Cain’s campaign manager, by trying to get him to categorically deny the story or that payments were made... this is what they do, lay out an impossible scenario so that whatever you say, you become entrapped. You can’t categorically deny the story, because it has not been fully flushed out yet... and you cannot categorically deny that payments were made, cause they probably were, but if you confirm that payments were made, they have the noose around your neck regardless the explanation... may God grant Cain wings of eagles, that he may soar above the filthy antics of these media elites and leftists bastards... and I account Geraldo a bastard.

As Sheri Urban cited above, the article claims “five figure settlements”. That could be a mere $10,000. My father had a woman file a fraudulent personal injury lawsuit against him for an ‘accident’ which never happened. She had no evidence, no witnesses, except her boyfriend, NO case. But Liberty Mutual handed her $35,000 just the same. This is also routine with big corporations and associations who are targeted with sexual harassment lawsuits. They are a dime a dozen, and they ALWAYS pay to settle them.

Politico sicks no less than FOUR reporters onto vague nearly 20 year old allegations to smear new GOP Frontrunner Herman Cain.

So the left wing rag "Politico" is running with this non story but it is really Perry, Romney, Rove, and the RINOs that are responsible for it?

I don’t think that is a bit funny. Apparently several Sunday morning host shacks talked to Mr. Cain in a like manner! I think those fools just plugged in their own toasters! Mr. Cain is head and shoulders above any of them. As for the filthy accusation tripping off Geraldo’s nasty tongue tonight. Someone is so afraid of Herman Cain’s popularity that they are pulling a Clarence Thomas on him!

I heard that Bob Schieffer apologized to Mr. Cain on the CBS news tonight! He doesn’t deserve to be forgiven, but of course Mr. Cain will forgive him.

Good points by Robert Stacey McCain tonight:

You have to read pretty far down into the Politico story before you find that response from Herman Cain spokesman J.D. Gordon, and the article sticks all the exculpatory material at the end:

______

Ron Magruder, Denise Marie Fugo and Joseph Fassler, the chair, vice chair and immediate past chairman of the National Restaurant Association board of directors at the time of Cain’s departure, said they hadn’t heard about any complaints regarding Cain making unwanted advances.

“I have never heard that. It would be news to me,” said Fugo, who runs a Cleveland, Ohio, catering company, adding such behavior would be totally out of character for the Cain she knew. “He’s very gracious.”

Fassler, who helped bring Cain on board as CEO of the restaurant association, said that any inappropriate behavior was not brought to his attention and that he would be upset to learn it had gone on and he was not made aware of it.

“That’s a shock to me,” Fassler said. “As an officer during all of Herman’s years there as a paid executive… none of that stuff ever surfaced to me. Nobody ever called me, complained about this, nor did I ever hear that from Peter Kilgore, nor did I ever hear that from Herman Cain.”

Fassler — who ran a Phoenix food-service company and finished his term as chairman the month before Cain’s June 1999 departure but remained on the board’s executive committee — described Cain as treating men and women identically and asserted it was “not within his character” to make unwanted advances. “It’s not what I know of him,” Fassler said.

Much like Fassler, almost all board members remember Cain fondly and say he left on good terms.

Cain was “extremely professional” and “fair” to female staffers at the restaurant association, recalled Lee Ellen Hayes, who said she “worked fairly closely with” Cain in the late 1990s, when she was an executive at the National Restaurant Association Education Fund, a Chicago-based offshoot of the group.

Cain’s treatment of women was “the same as his treatment of men. Herman treated everyone great,” said Mary Ann Cricchio, who was elected to the board of the restaurant group in 1998. She said Cain left such a good impression on the organization that when he spoke at a group event in January of this year, as he was considering a presidential bid, “he had unanimous support in the room.”
_________

We know nothing about the accusers and the specifics of the accusations from a dozen years ago are reported rather vaguely by Politico: “episodes that left the women upset and offended” and “physical gestures that were not overtly sexual but that made women who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable and that they regarded as improper in a professional relationship.”

All in all, it’s a long run for a short slide. Unless and until we have some specifics — including names, dates and places — my instinct is to agree with Gordon that this is “part of a smear campaign.”

Why are Cain’s enemies firing the thermonuclear component of their oppo-research arsenal so early? Generally speaking in such matters, you save your big stuff for later in the campaign.

Indeed.

Let us wipe away Mr Cains privileged status.
I loved the smoking ad, but Cain has been getting a free pass as far as scrutiny.

The man is a great speaker, he gets the blood boiling, but so did Obama.

We need a leader, not a shyster.

When Rove insisted Cain was “finished”, I wonder if he had already put the “sexual harassment” dossier in the mail to Politico.

I saw it and Herman missed a golden opportunity to turn it back on Schieffer. I would have let him rant and then asked him the question, Excuse me, but is it not still legal to smoke cigarettes? Furthermore, what would happen to all of that cigarette tax money currently being collected for all the childrens medical funds all across the country? Then the final shot would have been to ask where is all of this indignation about Obama’s chain smoking stinking up the White House.

I suspect this is all a load of garbage, but remember the new paradigm we’re in. Truth and facts no longer matter. In other words, expect all the late-night cretins like Letterman, Leno, Stewart, etc., to be making jokes about Cain as being some kind of unhinged, sex-crazed masher.

Again, that’s the new paradigm, with the whole media/political ruling-class complex and their manner of character assassination. Just like what was done with Palin. That’s why I was so exasperated with idiots who just wanted to respond to all this by saying Palin was “damaged goods,” and to turn the page. This kind of targeted assault needed to be confronted and fought with all barrels blazing, with utmost vigor. Because once this new paradigm was set and deemed effective in destroying someone, it will be perpetrated on ANY and ALL new conservative leaders that rise and are seen as a danger to the ruling order. Evidence to date is that the GOP is either too cowardly or too disinterested in engaging in this fight.

Isn't it amazing how the mutual interests of the illegal 0bama regime and the establishment GOP-RINOs merge and combine in such a sudden flurry of synchronization? As for me? I STAND WITH HERMAN CAIN.
