Posted on 11/04/2011 12:41:29 AM PDT by parksstp
LEBANON, TENNESSEE - The former treasurer of a political action committee operated by Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Incorporated has been arraigned on charges of stealing more than $70,000 from the organization......
"Forth was manager of political affairs for the National Restaurant Association in Washington, D.C., from January 1997 until April 1998."

Just the basics of what I've located so far. Scouring Monster, Linkedin, Facebook, and Monster to see if I can get a positive hit on an identity.
I can't find anything else showing if he was convicted or not, other than a link of his PAC at Cracker Barrel to the Tom Delay case.
I don't know, I just find it weird he skipped town at the same time the women was lodging her complaint. Something smells rotten here.
I could be chasing a dead end, but thought some might find it interesting.
Throw dots out there, and others (including your goodself), can help us all connect them. We will get there yet.
Everybody knows ALL conservatives are “dumb” and “perverts.”
Don’t rock the boat.
OMG! I think I found her. 90% Sure. I’m trying to get her Resume to make sure the Timeframe matches. I think it does.
Give me 15 minutes....
Did the time-lines match on the resume?
Yes, it does.
I’m afraid to do a new post in the main forum, but she matches ALL the details. I’m terrified if I’m wrong I might get sued, but it matches.
To not get sued, all you need to do is say something like “So-and-so left around the time the allegations were made; she might know more about what happened.”
Are you sure?
I guess I should emphasize that I am not a lawyer.
Another thing that is commonly done, but you need to be a bit more careful of, is to write an article “Is XXXX the woman?” which doesn’t draw any conclusions, but lists your evidence. If you write this style of article, it’s good form to contact her and ask.
I’m emailing the Admin Mod/JR. If they think there’s enough to go with, let them publish it.
This link may help ease your fears
I am not a lawyer either...my advice is NOT to announce her name to the general public, rather pass the story to some conservative media that you trust...who have more experience and more resources in such matters.
correct, wording is key, after all the facts are triple confirmed.
I sent to the Admin /JR since I trust FR. If they feel the links are strong enough to warrant posting, I’ll leave it to them to decide.
I don’t know a thing about her (whoever she may be) and don’t care one way or the other. This entire brouhaha is just a nonsensical hatchet job character assassination attempt being conducted by the elite establishment GOP progressive RINO corpse (not a misspelling) who are scared witless that their liberal RINO du jour is going to be defeated by a common grassroots tea party conservative. They did the same thing to Sarah Palin and several other tea party candidates. Karl Rove and Co can shove their liberal RINO where the sun don’t shine.
Go TEA party!!
bump for later read
I seriously can’t wait until we know the whole story. All this is incredibly confusing. Glad I’m just following along instead of trying to figure out what’s going on.
ping for later reading. I don’t blame you for being cautious. Nice work, though...a good man’s reputation is at stake...
Go check out the Rush story from Wednesday.
Apparently there was a change in the Washington Post article wording.
Sexual harassment is bs. Women do it to insulate themselves from being fired. Any compliment is harassment.
Buddy of mine went to a small copy room and brushed up against some fat chick and she said she was sexually harassed. Total legal bs insanity.
But that Wash Po wording change. Check it out.
I’ve also heard one accuser ID’d by current job on ABC. That can confirm your find.
Likely part of the plan was the “Bimbo Erruption” slow roll of the accusers coming forward. And we’re in the pubic hair on Coke can territory.
Cain is a huge threat. Takes away the race card. True conservative and only viable alternative to RINO Romney. More “scandals” on the way I’m sure.
This is it:
RUSH: Folks... Folks, get this. The Washington Post story that I have been citing liberally here for the last ten to 15 minutes? There are two versions of that story. There is a story that appeared online yesterday and a second version where something has been omitted. I have here what has been omitted near the end of the story as it ran yesterday on the Washington Post website. Are you ready? (shuffling paper) Ahem. Ahem. This has been deleted: “Because the case is more than a dozen years old, Bennett,” the woman’s lawyer, “said he no longer has the file nor does he have the confidentiality agreement. He said that he had not even remembered the name of the Association official who his client had accused. He said he doesn’t remember going to the Association offices. He thinks the matter might have been handled over fax and telephone quite expeditiously.”
It was that insignificant! That has since been deleted from the Washington Post story that is now, at present, running. Let me read it to you one more time. “Because the case is more than a dozen years old,” that would be 12 for those of you in Rio Linda, Bennett, Joel Bennett, “the woman’s lawyer said he no longer has the file,” doesn’t have the case file, he doesn’t have “the confidentiality agreement. He said that he doesn’t even remember the name of the Association official who his client accused,” meaning he didn’t even remember it was Herman Cain! “He said he doesn’t remember going to the Association offices ever to handle this matter. He thinks the matter might have been handled over fax and phone quite expeditiously,” meaning rat-tat-tat, couple faxes, couple phone calls.
Yep, 35 grand? Fine. We’re done here. See ya — and it’s 12 years old and couldn’t even remember that it was about Herman Cain. And doesn’t have the confidentiality agreement, and the Washington Post has stricken that from their only version of the story. This was on their online version of the story yesterday. Not there now. But Diana Schneider, editrix of the Limbaugh Letter saved the cache file of it (c-a-c-h-e, for those of you in Rio Linda) so that we have it in perpetuity; and this lawyer is running around making it sound like this woman’s got the goods. “Oh, yeah, she can’t wait to talk! She’s gonna nail Herman Cain! It’s not gonna be pretty. We can’t wait! It’ll be big bucks! Wait ‘til you hear it!”
Yesterday, he didn’t even know who this was about.
Okay, where we going next, Kevin to Columbus, Ohio. Great to have you on the program, sir. Hello.
Do you think it’s worth sending to Drudge or Andrew Breitbart?
The money and support is pouring in for Herman Cain, but we cannot slow down now. Please help him by donating at http://www.hermancain.com/
Also to help join the buzz about Herman go to facebook.com and like him. His likes have jumped dramatically since Monday (17%). Make no mistake Sean Hannitys BFF Karl Rove is watching Hermans likes and so is Romney. THIS is the way to stick it to the GOP establishment! Please tell your family and friends to like Herman as well.
I sent to Rush / Levin. If they think it is more than just a buch of coincidences, then they have the staff/resources to forward to Drudge and Breitbart if it is in fact newsworthy.
Great work, my FRiend. Will keep monitoring for updates.
I don’t think outing the accuser does anything but help the MSM attack Cain. The Pubic Hair on Coke moments are exactly what they want to keep the story alive. Sob story from some distraught women who can kiss her privacy and possibly career goodbye. (Ask Monica L. about that.)
Could also subject the “outer” to civil legal action.
would that more would follow suit -
Sounds like a good plan. I’m amazed at how clever you are.
saving for later
OK, I'll be back now, after this short toilet break! ;-)
you’re not going to miss anything. I’m not posting any identifications here. If it’s legit, you’ll hear it from Rush or Mark later today. The last thing I need is a crazy lady with lots of money to file some kind of slander charge against a poor, unemployed, conservative blogger.
You are doing it the right way. You have played a major role and nothing will come back to trouble you. Excellent. Wise. Good for you my FRiend.
Thanks, boss. I’ve been saying that for over a week. The GOP is scared to death of anyone with Tea Party backing and will cut them off at the knees, regardless of truth.
Congrats..You could be this year's "Buckhead"
If you think you are on to something, send it to Levin or Rush!
I think you're missing the point. This women may have left the NRA because of problems she had with her supervisor there -- and not due to harassment from Herman Cain.
Never mind, you already thought of it. They are doing a great job picking apart these shameful hit pieces so far.
We should all be standing up for Cain, even if it is not your candidate, because it is the right thing to do. They are going to keep bringing down conservative after conservative - time to turn the tables on them for once.
Interesting. So these departures and settlements may be about the actions of Mr. Forth rather than the actions of Mr. Cain...
Possibly. And because of the confidentiality agreements, all the MSM needs is an anonymous source to suggest it was because of sexual harassment from Cain, and there is no way to prove the assertion untrue.
I am too obtuse to put the dots together, I think.
It definitely fits the details of this report - “the woman in question, roughly 30 years old at the time and working in the National Restaurant Associations government affairs division ... “ http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1111/67581.html
I got a screen shot of that article “just in case”
As Herman Cain would say, “Your mixing Apples and Oranges”
The article about this guy who would have been working in the same office as the Cain accuser. At the time I found it and discovered it, I hadn’t found what I believe might be the identity of one of the Cain accusers.
“Cracker” barrel, eh?
I’m not following...
It looked to me that this guy and the accuser possibly worked together in the same government affairs division.
