Excuse me?

as the old saying goes, “Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.”

No. Absence of evidence is absence of evidence.

Comparing JoePa's defense coordinator's actions here is reprehensible. There were eye witnesses to severe allegations...as in caught in the act, and subsequent cover-up by many. Not. even. close.

If you read the post carefully, you would have noticed that I did not compare acts to acts, but expectations to expectations. Nor did I say that the retired defensive coordinator was guilty; I said he was charged.

You might want to refer to the Breitbart link I mentioned above. Breitbart claims a solid source who confirms that the woman was at the event. Even if that source is correct, we still don’t know that anything untoward happened between her and Cain. If you want to condemn Breitbart, go ahead. I was simply linking to a source that provides pertinent information.

I for one am condemning no one, neither the defensive coordinator nor Breitbart. I merely passed on that the former was charged with a crime and that latter reported a source.

In light of the inherent unpredictability of recent events, you might want to temper your confident assurances about how things just HAVE to turn out.
