Cain Accuser's Lawyer Said Case "Leaked to Politico by a Board Member of Natl Restaurant Assoc"
CNN ^ | 11-01-2011 | Montag813

Posted on 11/01/2011 5:42:13 PM PDT by montag813

The lawyer for one of the Cain accusers, Joel P. Bennett, just told the panel on Anderson Cooper's CNN show that it was "his understanding" that the allegation was "leaked to Politico from a Board member of the National Restaurant Association".

Could it have been the former President of the NRA who took over after Cain left, who is a Romney supporter?

Bennett said it in response to a Gloria Borger question, and I have not heard it anywhere else.

Hmmm. Very interesting. So with Romney out of the race (once this plays out), what does that mean for the nomination?

Who will Romney’s people go to.

And the answer is...Huntsman...LOL.

Could you add “National Restaurant Association” to the title so people (like me) don’t have a seizure thinking that the National Rifle Association was involved in this?

thanks.

Since CNN said it, it must be twue! (sarc/). Therefore, I have yet ANOTHER REASON why I will never vote for Milt! I sure hope the GOOBers who are pushing him know what the hell they are doing. At this point, Milt could chose Palin as his VP and I still won’t vote for him.

I don't see why not. They name the person making this claim. It's not unsourced like Politico's story or so many others.

If this was done by someone friendly to Romney it won't help Romney although it shouldn't hurt Romney unless his campaign can be tied to it.

I expect none of those who saw Rove or Perry behind this will be persuaded. Every scandal has its own equivalent of the "truthers."

Sounds like that board member, not Cain, is the one who’ll be in legal trouble for violating the confidentiality provision of the settlement.

To be honest I’m sick of all the political BS. The news media is nothing more then an outlet for the party they associate with. As for CNN you can guess who that is.

I’m not supporting anyone at this point, I want to see who is weeded out over the next few months and whoever it is we get I doubt I’ll be satisfied and I’ll succumb to the lesser of two evils.

The President is nothing more then a figurehead and he’ll abide by what congress tells him to if there’s a majority we need. Our true battle is with congress.

Of course a President that can lead with a set of balls helps.

It's possible, but I wouldn't be the least surprised if it were Obama, his minions, or his puppermasters. Obama has a long history of destroying political opponents so he has never really run against strong opposition.

So it could be an "establishment republican," this this seems to have the fingerprints of Obama all over it.

Well duh! Why would republicans drop a dime on a fellow republican after he played the race card on a fellow member? Newt is beginning to look like the only republican I could vote for. Maybe Cain can sell a bunch of books and get another job at the Fed

I agree. As I stated on an earlier thread, if this had been the dims, it would have been leaked October 31, 2012.

Romney benefits from infighting between Perry and Cain for the conservative vote.

My bet is on Perry.

“Could it have been the former President of the NRA who took over after Cain left, who is a Romney supporter?”

As they hinted at on O’Reilly tonight, if it comes out that ANY of the candidates for the nomination had a hand in this, this will destroy their campaign. I pray to God that it was Romney and that it comes out.

Then the Restaurant Association violated the confidentiality agreement. Cain and his campaign should stop answering questions on this matter. The news media can go research its own stories. Cain owes them nothing.

I like Cain, but can he go two hours without giving an interview? He needs cool it on the interviews. He’s giving the story a life of it’s own. Who’s advising this man? My prediction, if Cain doesn’t give it rest, and give no more interviews, stick a fork in him he’s done. Every time he’s interviewed he seems to say something he didn’t say before. Did he go to the Anthony Wiener school of journalism?

All Politico material must be excerpted. 320 words is not a proper excerpt. Please feel free to post that article as a thread and be sure to excerpt it. Thanks.

Well, J.P. Bennett is just a freaking genius, isn't he, given that Martin did everything but name the board member in the original Politico article:

"The first woman was identified to POLITICO by a former association board member, and her identity was confirmed by two additional sources.

The former board member recalled learning of the woman’s departure at a 1999 association board meeting and trade expo in Chicago.

“She was offered a financial package to leave the association, and she did,” said the former board member. “What I took offense at was that it was clear that rather than deal with the issue, there was an effort to hush it up. She was offered a way out to keep quiet.”

There are numerous organizations which go by the three letter acronym NRA.
Of course, the abbreviation is being used because it confuses the issue with one particular group most known for the abbreviation, just to upset people like you who will assume guns are somehow involved now.

It could still be the Dems. Maybe they planned to take out Cain and Romney at the same time. Take out Cain with a sexual harassment charge and leak that it was Romney. Two for the price of one.

I don't think it was Perry, because someone went after him with the “Nxxx” rock.

But it is interesting that the attorney is saying it was someone on the NRA board.

My vote is for Obama’s people, and next most likely is Romney's people.
