Skip to comments.Herman Cain: By the way, a woman’s about to come forward and accuse me of a long affair
Posted on 11/28/2011 2:55:27 PM PST by TBBT
The story about the accuser just went live at Fox Atlanta. She gave them her name, an interview on camera, and she claims she has records substantiating the relationship. Heres the curious non-denial denial from Cains lawyer. Hmmm:
Mr. Cain has been informed today that your television station plans to broadcast a story this evening in which a female will make an accusation that she engaged in a 13-year long physical relationship with Mr. Cain. This is not an accusation of harassment in the workplace this is not an accusation of an assault which are subject matters of legitimate inquiry to a political candidate.
Rather, this appears to be an accusation of private, alleged consensual conduct between adults a subject matter which is not a proper subject of inquiry by the media or the public. No individual, whether a private citizen, a candidate for public office or a public official, should be questioned about his or her private sexual life. The publics right to know and the medias right to report has boundaries and most certainly those boundaries end outside of ones bedroom door.
Mr. Cain has alerted his wife to this new accusation and discussed it with her. He has no obligation to discuss these types of accusations publicly with the media and he will not do so even if his principled position is viewed unfavorably by members of the media.

Yeah Hot Air has always been on Herman Cain side..... NOT!
CNN already knew...
That announcement was for the public.
Pardon, your desperation is showing. No more Rinos is not negotiable. Bring on the Bimbos, still supporting the most conservative candidate who can win.
That’s one carefully worded response.
??? Why on earth would his lawyer give that kind of a crazy response?
From my perspective, one party to an affair does not “accuse” the other party of having an affair unless the affair is with someone else.
If the affair is one that the person reporting the affair was involved in, it’s not an accusation, it’s a confession.
Whether the confession is true or not is another matter; it’s just not an accusation.
And Cain is not exactly denying the truth of it.
In my opinion the cumulative weight of all of this has put the Cain Train off the tracks.
Just another sleazy hit piece from the MSM. Who cares if he had an affair? That’s none of my business. That’s between Cain, his wife and God. Nope - for liberals, sex is not a private matter - if you’re Republican! Just disgusting!
too many stories; too many stories to discount; all too common problem amongst powerful men in corporate america, they reach high levels and start grabbing for extramarital brass rings;
Add this to the problem that in any interview you have to only ask him 3 foreign policy questions in a row to utterly and devastatingly expose his lack of depth for the office. Its obvious that he hasn’t developed a habit of reading the conservative and/or liberal foreign policy journals that are on the shelf at any well stocked magazine rack. I read them and can answer better than him.
If he was a Democrat, the media would fall heads over heels to defend him. Did it really happen? And why is this coming out now? We all know why!
It’s amazing, they really will not allow a real candidate on the ballot will they! Such a Banana Republic we have become.
It’s Mittens and Shillery or nothing. See. Your free, you can vote for your choice!
If an old affair sinks Cain, why shouldn’t an old affair sink Newt? We’ll get Romney before it’s all over.
Obama attack machine maybe offering some of these people some money.
Yup. They’re trying to make Cain roadkill with social conservative voters and clear the decks for the nomination of a RINO. Whether its Gingrich or Mittens, the MSM is ensuring Obama faces a weak re-election opponent. This is the heavy tank fire designed to ensure he will quit the race. Lock and load boys and take out that n****r! Mission accomplished!
I don’t know if Cain cheated on his wife.
I do know that the Neo-Marxist Democrats are racists who believe white males will never vote for a Black man who sleeps with white women. So low and behold one white woman after another gets trotted out without one single shred of hard evidence.
I will disbelieve any of these accusations until some hard evidence is provided. Until then Mr. Cain, as a God Fearing Christian Man, gets the benefit of the doubt.
