Atlanta Journal Constitution ^ | 11/28/2011 | Jim Galloway

Posted on 11/28/2011 1:55:45 PM PST by SeekAndFind

Fox 5 Atlanta’s Dale Russell is promoting on his Facebook page a piece alleging that GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain had a 13-year affair with a woman. “Cain denies an affair, but not a relationship,” says Russell.

The story is aimed for the station’s 6 p.m. broadcast.

Cain Says New Accuser Comes Forward
By SUSAN SAULNY

Herman Cain said on CNN Monday afternoon that another woman had come forward to make allegations him, saying that she had an affair with him.

“I want to give you a heads up and everyone a heads up,” he told Wolf Blitzer.

He said he had been contacted by an Atlanta television station about the allegations.

“Here we go again,” he said of the allegations. “I didn’t do anything wrong.”

A Facebook page for Fox 5 Atlanta said that the station was reporting on the 13-year affair between the woman and Mr. Cain.

I guess the people haven’t totally accepted NOOT yet, so they have to try to destroy Cain utterly.

If he was a Democrat that would make him just that much more desirable to the voters.

Since I am not a Democrat it in fact would bother me quite a bit, but that is only if it is true.

If Cain finally implodes expect most of his supporters to move to Gingrich because those two got along well while Cain and Perry were fighting.

Don't count on it. Many Cain supporters are Cain supporters because he is a conservative alternative to pro-ILLEGAL aliens candidates Newt and Perry.

The MSM will hold back on all the stories about the Gingrich women until he gets the nomination.

Then the same thing happening to Cain will happen to him.

ROFL, Gingrich is a known serial adulterer.

The worst case scenario for Cain here still leaves him better off than Gingrich.

Man, the lying SOBs in the media are soooo predictable. The democrat nobility always attacks black folks with the same tired lies they've been using against them since they still owned them as slaves.

The Democrat Fascist Party, the party of racism, eugenics, and dictatorship. Always has been, always will be. That's why the democrat party needs to be completely destroyed as a national political party in this country along with the recruitment and rewards system they've turned "higher education" into in this country.

Many years ago I worked with a man who was my mentor. We got along swimmingly at work as we both shared an interest in physics and conservative politics. Outside of work, there was no relationship.

When I rescued a pregnant stray cat and she delivered three cute kittens, he said he wanted to adopt one as a gift for his wife.

One of his children came with him to my house and picked up a kitten.

Three years later, during their divorce, she accused me of having an affair with her husband.

Never happened.

Herman Cain has my sympathy.

Why is the media so obsessed about whether or not Herman Cain had extramarital relationships? Why? Do they just want to jump on the bandwagon to trash Herman Cain with stuff that really does not matter?

Day to day relationships are par for the course for most Americans, I believe. Gossip is par for the course when people have not the brains to talk about substance.

NEVER. If Cain is finished, Palin needs to run. Otherwise, it's time to take the bong out of storage and get behind Gary Johnson.

Uhhh, if affairs are gonna rule out candidates, then Newt better drop out right along with Cain.

Newt fans around here better be careful about cheering on the Cain affair story, true or not. The Left is setting y'all up because trust me they have a ton of ammo ready on ol' Newt with regards to women.

God, no. This is the wrong way to take a candidate out of the race. If he’s liberal or wacky or inept or just doesn’t appeal to anyone, fine. Accusations by hired skank and exposes of strictly personal matters — no. Even if they have better corroboration than the skanks (which was zero), they ought to leave it alone. They are causing totally unnecessary pain to the entire Cain family and probably someone else’s besides.

You had an Intellectual Affair with that poor man and ruined his marriage. No sex, no romantic feelings, but just all brain. But still an affair....

Well in the minds of liberals it is....

If Cain were having an affair with a man it would be applauded and celebrated as the norm and liberating since it’s a women it’s like having sex with your dog.

Did we get this kind of interest with Obama’s homosexual affairs? Maybe he gets a pass because he is gay, and it would be politically incorrect for the media to scrutinize him.

Let's say that this woman's allegations are true. Mrs. Cain will have to be the one to deal with it. So will Mr. Cain with the Lord.

Let's say that having an affair disqualifies you from the presidency. Let's say that the standard started in 1900. How many former presidents would have been disqualified?

The answer is easy, and embarrassing.

Thing is, a ton of people supposedly on the Right want Cain destroyed also so they will cheer on this attack on his personal life, stupidly unaware or uncaring that the exact same thing is going to happen to their candidate of choice. We know Newt has more skeletons than a haunted house. Obama can have gay affairs no one cares apparently

You are right about Newt. Supposedly Atlantic has located a woman he had an affair with in the 1970s and perhaps Calliata wasn't the only House staffer he was hitting in the 1990s.

With the culture so gratuitously sex saturate, a fellow can’t have a friend who’s a lady without tongues soon beginning to wag, and it does not matter whether they are as chaste as the Pope and Mother Teresa. Of course the wagging tongues want to hide their own naughtiness by encouraging the illusion that “everybody does it.”

They want Cain dead and buried.
This is gutter politics of the worst kind. They couldn’t prove he was a sexual assailant so now they smear him with private affairs, true or not. We’ve had years of not looking into anything about Obama’s past. The spin will be “well we don’t care about a consensual affair but this proves he chases women so the other stuff is probably true”. Once that is accepted by everyone they can easily knock off Newt as we know for sure he has had affairs and God knows what we don’t know yet.
