Skip to comments.Steve King: Cain accusers are ‘liberal activists’
Posted on 11/04/2011 8:23:17 PM PDT by Maelstorm
U.S. Rep. Steve King gave his opinion of news that GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain was previously accused of sexual harassment.
King told Jake Sherman of Politico that the women who accused Cain are likely liberal activists and official hyperventilaters of the first order.
The Kiron Republican also said news outlets were wrong to report the story, which Politico broke, indicating that unless there were several women willing to come forward with full details, the story should have never been given any ink.
Allegations were made by two women and stem back to the the time when Cain was served as head of the National Restaurant Association. Settlements were made by the Association, which included a gag order on the women. Although an attorney for at least one of the women has asked the group to lift her gag so that she can more freely speak about the incident and directly address Cains claims that the complaint was baseless, legally she is currently prevented from speaking.
The Associated Press has also interviewed a third woman, also a previous employee with the National Restaurant Association, who is claiming that Cain acted inappropriately. Finally, Iowa conservative talk show host Steve Deace has confirmed that behavior by Cain made a female employee at the radio station uncomfortable.
Cains campaign continues to maintain its candidates innocence and has referred to continued questions about the previous incidents as an ongoing smear campaign launched by the national media.

But he won't say what. Just a rumor-mongering shock jock.
Elsewhere it is reported that the behavior at issue was Cain saying “Darling would you mind doctoring my tea for me?”
I kid you not.
There isn’t a face palm big enough for that.
Yeah Deace is pathetic. He finally said what it was he saw as inappropriate. Cain complimented the women on their looks. Deace is pathetic.
Either Rush or Hannity recounts one of the stories as being from a conservative female source (one of the accusers) and a conservative male source (supposedly a witness)—he didn’t sound entirely convinced though.
What it has been posted here, he called one of the hoes there darling and ask her to doctor his tea. He is not a shock jock, he is a pasty white fat boy that looks like those slug sons of huckster probably lives with his mommy.
I think Deace is a closet liberal because he was all in for the liberal Huckabee in 2008.
It sounds like he’s sucking around for some national notoriety by saying something outrageous and stupid like some shock jock.
Yeah, but it was the way he said it...
Yet, openly and constantly, prominent democrats sexually harass conservatives who identify with the tea party by calling us the extremely-offensive, sexually-charged slur: “tea bagger”.
“Cain was served as head”?
That sounds like sexual harrassment to me.
The National Restaurant Association has released at least one of the women from her confidentiality agreement:
...we have advised Mr. Bennett that we are willing to waive the confidentiality of this matter and permit Mr. Bennetts client to comment.
All the women should be released from their confidentiality agreements. Once that happens, it should be repeatedly noted in the conservative press and by the Cain campaign. If these women are planning October Surprises, let's make sure that they cannot blame their delay in coming forward on confidentiality agreements. We want for them to have no good excuses for any slimy political stunts.
It would have been interesting if he had said “racist liberal activists”.
That's not a bet I would take.
I just wonder what under-the-table gifts George Soros will give these women if they tell the right stories at the right time.
The operative word is sucking.
Nothing but a leftwing frontal assault.
