I don’t like how he has handled this at all. It doesn’t seem like a truthful man’s reaction. Maybe it’s just more of his not-ready-for-primetime, I don’t know. It just seems that there is a pattern with men in politics, and the vast majority have been proven to be predators of some kind, of different degrees. I have been watching these situations from afar since what, the Gary Hart affair c1984, and they generally turn out the same, especially when there are multiple women. Of course, Cain could be innocent, but his inability to get a clear message across is killing him.
Wow - what a compilation of comments. DU'ers thank you.
You have not made your case.
Cain has maintained the same thing this entire time - he was accused once that he knew of, but he didn’t do anything and they found the allegations unfounded. He didn’t know if the NRA settled when he was first asked, found out later they had.
The NRA’s statement on Friday completely confirmed Cain’s side of the story. The complaint was unfounded, she was let go with an agreement with no liability to the NRA and Cain was never party to any of the paperwork.
PLUS, the accuser worked in the governmental affairs division, and Cain was fighting government regulations as head of the NRA. Definite motive for false accusation.
If you don’t like Cain, fine, but don’t make up stuff to make your point.
