Concerned Women for America wants answers from Herman Cain (Politico again!)

Concerned Women for America, the right-leaning women’s group, is calling on Herman Cain to say whether he faced complaints about his personal behavior from female employees at the National Restaurant Association who later left the organization with financial settlements.

CWA president Penny Nance told POLITICO: “I think Herman Cain needs to directly answer the question.” Continue Reading

“Early in my career I resigned from a trade association for the exact same reason and with no financial settlement. I simply found another job,” Nance said. “Therefore, I know in a very personal way that sexual harassment exists and that it's demeaning and painful. It should never be tolerated in the workforce and certainly not the White House.”

She continued, though, saying the report of sexually suggestive behavior toward women was not “consistent with my experience with Herman Cain.”

“I have to say in all fairness that this characterization is completely contrary to the Herman Cain I know. Herman Cain has only been 100% respectful and deferential to me. I have never heard other women in conservative political circles complain of his behavior and they would complain loudly,” Nance said. “Our character and reputations are really all we have at the end of the day. Before I besmirch Herman Cain's I would need more than this.”

POLITICO reported Sunday night that Cain was accused of inappropriate behavior by multiple employees at the National Restaurant Association; the trade group reached financial settlements with several women who also left their jobs.

The real reply should be “I’ll show you mine if you show me yours”. Present the actual documented facts, accusers, and accusations before any answers can be given. If you cannot provide anything other than ineuendo and baseless charges then pound sand and expect a court case.

I notice that Jerry Rivers is pretty aggressive in demanding the Mr Cain answer his questions too.

I just completed a little online research of Penny Nance.

She is a long-time Rick Perry supporter and has talked him up as the Romney-alternative on Fox News before he entered the race.

She was National Co-Chair of Perry’s “The Response: A Call to Prayer for a Nation in Crisis”

So this is "Dirty Tricks" by the Perry Campaign !

Politico is a tabloid - nothing else.

I believe that there are mentally ill women who for some reason feel all men have an interest in them, whether real or fancied.

They tend to enjoy the drama at the expense of their victims.

On another Polutico hit piece on another day...

Penny Nance, the CEO of Concerned Women for America, an organization of social conservatives, reacted furiously to the Politico story...

...national conservative leader thinks that the Politico story today headlined “Is Rick Perry Dumb?” is really, really dumb.

I’m upset by this hounding by CWA after Cain has thoroughly answered the accusation; and both male and female colleagues and acquaintances from the era and situation in question have given him a ringing endorsemnt and character witness. CWA originally was a rock-solid organization which was all business and no publicity hounding. Don’t know WHAT they stand for now.

What do Penny’s LOOKS have to do with ANYTHING?! Is that how she GOT the gig? Is that what CWA has become?

Funny how unconcerned these women were about that serial rapist we had as a President a while back. I guess they don’t mind being raped by Democrats.

I want to know when Michelle 0bama stopped beating her husband.

Well... she has been taking turns with her mamma and Valerie. Somebody has to take time to feed the kids.
