Posted on 10/31/2011 5:31:12 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Herman Cain has been taking heat for his response to questions about Politico's story on alleged sexual harassment. But today on Morning Joe, it was Politico's own Jonathan Martin, lead author of the story, who was being evasive about the details of the allegations against Cain.
Incredibly, when Willie Geist asked him to describe specifically what Politico is accusing Cain of having done, Martin hemmed, hawed then ultimately said "we're just not going to get into the details of exactly what happened with these women," beyond the sketchy generalities in the Politico story.

Politico author of ‘sexual harassment’ article on Cain refuses to answer question about what allegations are. Ping to Today show list.
born December 13, 1945 in Memphis, TN (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)
Luther Cain Jr., born March 16, 1925 in TN, died March 29, 1982 in Atlanta, GA
Lenora Davis, born July 27, 1925 in GA, died August 20, 2005 in Atlanta, GA
Both parents were US Citizens at the time of his birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Herman Cain is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama ISN'T!
Click on the cane, (You're Fired.)
I thought Bill Clinton made these kinds of things a non-issue. /s
It looks like time for Herman to file the old libel lawsuit against these bums.
Just look at him. His facial expressions look like those of a liar and a smear merchant.
People like this have no shame.
Despoil a man’s reputation with BS, and then get on a morning talk show with nothing.
He looks like a good candidate for a Romney White House Press Secretary. I wonder if he was already promised the job? Na, knowing Romney the job was only implied and the little weasel jumped on board the Weasel Express without reading the fine print.
But for WHAT REASON?
To give her a memo, or for privacy to discuss business..?
Sarah is right, He’s a PUNK
Martin doesn’t HAVE any “details”, but would be happy for you to assume the worst.
He’s in the smear and headline business.
Facts and details aren’t necessary.
That's the way you talk when you're acting as a spokeman for someone, a third party.
I think we’ve seen this crap before with another prominent conservative black man...
The left and their ideological “father” really aren’t very creative, are they?
True, False or Hit Piece .... it will play out and Cain will
have to address the issue personally, not his spokesperson.
Cain will probably be given that opportunity today.
.....Cain himself will have a chance to respond to the allegations today, as he is set to
appear live on Fox News at 11:15 a.m. The presidential candidate is also scheduled to
deliver remarks at the American Enterprise Institute and at the National Press Club in
Washington, DC on Monday.....

Herman Cain sounds off on race, a debate win, and the need to simplify government

[snip] .... “Here’s my theory,” said Cain, leaning forward in his chair. “Let’s talk about the current field of Republican candidates. They can’t go after Obama as hard as I can because they’re not black. I think that, either subconsciously or deliberately, they are being coached to not say it a certain way, that you’re going to be labeled a racist and the liberal media is going to try to bring you down, because they still want to protect their precious Obama.”
Cain believes his audiences are a different story. “The voters, they hear my message first, not ‘He could take it to Obama,’ because they are more concerned about stopping Obama than taking it to Obama,” he explained. “This is what I’m hearing and this is what I’m feeling. And the race card is going to be short-lived if Herman Cain gets the nomination.”
“They’re going to come after me more viciously than they would a white candidate,” Cain responded. “You’re right. Clarence Thomas. And so, to use Clarence Thomas as an example, I’m ready for the same high-tech lynching that he went through — for the good of this country.” Cain smiled broadly. “I’m ready for the same high-tech lynching.” .........” [snip]
I saw it at breakfast.
Politico's Jonathan Martin declared Cain guilty for refusing to answer his yes/no question :” Have you ever been accused ...?”
Scarbouro who has been campaigning for Romney on his show for months declared the Cain candidacy dead (for the non-answer) and Romney the obvious winner, just like he told us it would be...
The CSPAN NOW callers flooding the lines with calls like “Politico wouldn't make this up” and “I know this is true it happens all the time”
The liberal Clinton defenders claiming :”This is a private matter none of our business” are no-where to be found.
I don't immediately see how this hurts Cain, except with those RINOs ("only Romney can beat Obama' gang) already in the Romney tank.
I do not think there is anyone paying attention to Herman Cain that did not know this was a possibility. Watching Ted Kennedy and other “moral police” go after Clarence Thomas was disgusting. The claims made by employees can be real or bogus. Either way there is a payout. One famous company had a severly impaired alcoholic female working in a highly paid sensitive position. There was no chance of rehab or intervention and she was screwing up big time.
They had no choice but to terminate.......but wait..she was also a lesbian. You guessed it. A deal was worked out for an enormous severence package and a letter of recommendation for her
next position ( which she had already aquired). You cannot just release someone these days. It is a lawyer game with back room deals struck betweeen parties. The hint of Mr Cain being a bad boy is damaging. Unless the reporter can bring forth proof, he is nothing but a man doing a hatchet job for another political figure. Who?
And she ought to know! bttt
