Report: Cain sought dinner date with fifth woman
polutico ^ | Monday November 7, 2011 | MAGGIE HABERMAN |

Posted on 11/07/2011 8:53:49 PM PST by Bigtigermike

A former USAID worker claims Herman Cain asked her to set up dinner with a woman who attended a speech he gave in 2002, the Washington Examiner is reporting tonight.

The worker - 40-year-old Donna Donella, of Arlington - told the paper that the moment came after Cain gave a paid speech in Egypt that year. A woman in the crowd posed a query to Cain during the speech, the Examiner said. Continue Reading

Donella told them “And after the seminar was over, Cain came over to me and a colleague and said, ‘Could you put me in touch with that lovely young lady who asked the question, so I can give her a more thorough answer over dinner?’”

She was "suspicious of Cain's motives and delined to set up the date," the Examiner reporter wrote.

That prompted Cain to reply, "Then you and I can have dinner." Instead, some of Donella's co-workers suggested a group outing.

Apparently dating is now a crime if you are a Republican but the same ones crying foul are teaching 11 year olds to “if it feels good do it” in explicit sex-ed classes.

They really really want you to believe Herman Cain has done this. It’s part of the plan. Say it enough and people will believe it. Of course, no one ever touches real perverts like Bill Clinton, the rapist.

You know someone should sue these people who are bringing this stuff out because Bill Clinton who was proven to have raped women was never prosecuted.

Geepers creepers. I’m in trouble. I can’t tell you how many people I took out to dinner.

Thanks for helping the MSM spread the lies, Bigtigermike. The liberals can count on a few good useful idiots on the Right to assist in trumpeting their propaganda. After all, when your candidates platform and campaign isn’t selling, you gotta exploit, and attack Conservative candidates to get a leg up.

This just getting ridiculous. He’s now stiffing waiters. And I can only assume they mean “stiffing” by not paying the tab.

Cain exhibited no inappropriate sexual behavior during the dinner, though he did order two $400 bottles of wine and stuck the women with the bill, she said.

"She was 'suspicious of Cain's motives and declined to set up the date..."

Well of course she was suspicious, because all us "typical white people" know that every black man is a perverted sex maniac. /s

Anyone who thinks these allegations, even if not proven, would not hurt Cain fatally in a general election is smoking crack...or in need of psychiatric care.

“I couldn’t swear that he had some untoward intentions, but we all thought his tone was suspect and we didn’t feel comfortable putting him in touch with that woman,” Donella, who the Examiner identified as an independet who voted for President Obama in the last election, was quoted saying.

So Democrats can make whatever claims they want, and people will link them on FR! Nice.

Well, Cain is married. The Republican base includes some who frown on adultery.

Of course, I see no reason why he has to eat dinner by himself.

All of these allegations are fine but they don’t mean a damn thing unless she was “uncomfortable”.

She said she didn't witness any "inappropriate sexual behavior" at the group dinner. But she claimed he asked the waiter for two $400 bottles of wine, and then stiffed the rest of the group when it came time to pay.

Now he is a cheap chisler too?

Yeah, the Left plays rope-a-dope with a few Freepers. Just read some of these comments. Some are actually not interested in whether or not these allegations are true. They just want their candidate to win, so they’ll support Liberals in perpetrating lies, and encourage character assassination in order to gain an advantage.

Right, 4 Obama zombettes and a ditz that needs money more than her dignity. Without a doubt these 5 should choose the Republican nominee.

Every woman in America should claim that she was asked out on a date by Herman Cain. When the number reaches 5000 then the storm will die out.

From Wiki:

Cain married Gloria Cain (née Etchison), of Atlanta, soon after her graduation from Morris Brown College in 1968. His wife of 43 years is a homemaker

My biggest problem with this entire matter is that Cain Accused Perry of being behind this.
And he got away with it.

It’s become a circus.

It’s inappropriate to do that. Buy a woman dinner who asked a question. So all these women are liars...or maybe he’s a flirt. I think to blindly defend him is just as bad as asuuming he’s guilty. But now we’re not talking about tax codes or OBama..we’re talking about Cain’s personal life. That makes me angry.

So this woman can read minds?

If Bill Clinton asked the same thing, she would have hopped to.

Maybe Cain stiffed her for the wine as a payback for being a government dipstick.

A $ 400 bottle of wine in Egypt? I don’t think so. Maybe it was 400 Egyptian dollars.Who knows?

If Perry found this out this easily, then you can bet the Dems would have found it too. Instead of talking about it now, we’d be talking about it next summer.

It is beginning to look like popcorn time isn't it. I'd like to get back to choosing a nominee but I guess we are in for a steady diet of smear Cain. Oh well.

The sheeple will gobble this up like candy. Cain is (sadly) done, as the hype media will not let this go. Adultery/harassment is something that just doesn’t go away, even if you are innocent (which I believe he is).
