Herman Cain's campaign is revealing suspicions about who is behind the story regarding the former unidentified employees who accused Mr. Cain of sexual harassment in the late 1990's.

If Perry is involved he is finished as a candidate.

Makes perfect sense to me. The “former” RAT, Rick Perry no doubt still has ties with the RAT party.

Why am I thinking “Mole”?

As this plays out it may mean the destruction of Perry and Romney. Leaving Cain and Gingrich standing as the only viable candidates.

If either one are identified as participating I have no doubt the base will spit them out. My sense is people are sick of these tactics.

Perry is probably involved but this will not hurt Perry's candidacy.

Baraq (or his handlers) apparently had some type of tactical nuke they threatened the Clintons with during the 08 primary season.

Otherwise, the vaunted Clinton private detective team would surely have turned up enough dirt to bury Obama.

The journolisters will never rat out their source. Do you remember the LA Times hussein tape we never saw? These guys are experts at doing these partisan hits.

“If Perry is involved he is finished as a candidate.”

Cain beats Perry in Iowa, South Carolina, Florida, and Texas.

Perry will have to destroy Cain, or he might as well drop out of the race now.

The evidence against him in this case is very strong.

From sre, a National Review commenter:
http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/282047/former-nra-pollster-if-cain-accuser-allowed-speak-could-end-campaign-katrina-trinko


So, if you are a D, you can get elected President without releasing ANY of your educational records and admitting to doing “a little blow” . . . or being a married-but-universally-acknowledged horn-dog.

But if you are an R, you are toast if you made a pass at an employee at a restaurant years ago?

And we wonder why we’re left with Romney?

Good heavens, no person in their right mind would run for the Republican nomination.

A scummy deed not left undone by the Perrybots. They can’t sell their man so they will sabotage the man who is winning. And their evil intent reflects badly on Perry who has proven, beyond a doubt, to be a loser in the first place!

The person who was “behind it” was probably simply a journalist sniffing about for a good story, and Cain should have been ready for this to come out, especially since he now acknowledges (after denying several times) that he had discussed this earlier at the time of his failed run for office.

And does it matter who was “behind” it? What about having Cain give a straight story in answer to it rather than trying to focus on who did it and attempting to tar the names of all of his rivals? In my opinion, this is disgraceful behavior.

They may trying to deflect it on perry. Last night Rusty Hphries said it was Janet Napolitano who was Anita Hills attorney against Clarence Thomas and that jn is the expert on sexual harassment . Last part of that may be in jest but nit the main point. He said Herman is a true alpha male, zero thinks he is but Cain would wipe the floor with zero. Zero fears Cain the most.

I tend to believe Mr. Anderson’s words and would give him the benefit of the doubt. We don’t actually know who has done this yet, but I would not be surprised if it is a Republican or Democrat.

Not that it needs anything else to hurt it. Perry is fading fast enough without this.

I do not believe Perry had anything to do with this...

BUT, Rahm Emanuel? That is believable.

What a slithering snake. This has the stench of a Dem hit job, by Obozo’s little toadies.

Think about this. It would be a 2fer. Crush Cain and destroy Perry’s candidacy.

Who would benefit? Romney? Yes, but I doubt he would do this, he has a history of friendship with Cain.

Then Who? Why, Obozo and his merry minions.

Nope, Rick has been a Republican for a long time. (I have been a Republican since I could vote (am 64), and am from the same county as Rick Perry. We grew up 14 miles apart.)

Forget your suggestion, will not hold water.

Not seeing the connection to the ballerina.

The Nat. Restaurant Assoc. runs a major portion of their operation out of Chicago... The execs have access to several clubs and other perks paid for by the Association in Chicago as well. They essentially rub shoulders with the Chicago machine everyday, on a very personal level.

I might add that Cain ripped Clinton a new one on national t.v. over the health care law they tried to pass. No doubt the Clinton's and Rahm made a file on Cain using FBI and IRS assets.

I can easily see how Rahm is involved here.

If the Democrats had the info they might have waited for a more opportune time -- let Cain's campaign build and let him and Romney really bloody each other -- before releasing the story.

It's always possible, but consider how long Gore's people sat on the Bush DWI/DUI story in 2000. They held on to it until it would really hurt Bush.

There would have to have been a gamble that sideswiping Cain wouldn't throw the nomination to Romney -- an understanding that Perry or Gingrich would be able to muster the kind of support that Cain has.

...a National Restaurant Association (NRA) employee out of the Chicago office leaked the story to the Perry campaign...

Nothing more than allegations so far. But. If true. Perry should be shunned.

Cain is the one who’s through. I’m beginning to believe he has mental problems. They “suspect” Perry and Rahm? No proof? This reminds me of the old Highland Superstores commercials from 20 years ago. They’d open the commercial with a voice over asking the question: How does Highland Superstores decide where to open their next store? Then they’d show the President of the company with a blindfold on throwing a dart at a map of the U.S. Sound like Herman is throwing darts at a list of names. He’s spending more time making accusations than actually being straightforward about what happened between him and these women.

Next headline, Looter Guy will be the one behind it all. Who cares? Politics is dirty. There was a settlement, yes?

It comes down to her word against his with no video or audio. I would vote for Looter Guy over Obama so I don't much care if a Dem leaked it during general or Rham, Perry, Romney or Cain himself during primary, I DO NOT CARE.

No criminal charges brought, no crime conviction, Cain stays in, he gets my vote. We will spend months taking about this mess as Obama sits smiling, untouched by media or our candidate.

Will we ever learn to ignore the MSM and move on? Guess not.
