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.
good freaking grief.
They have destroyed all the conservative, nothing left untouched except RINO’s
I am about ready to dial out for this entire election.
Bring on the Bimbos, still supporting the most conservative candidate who can win.
It aint gonna be Herman Cain, Tonto.
They would be having orgasms he was so sexy and virile! But he ain’t Bubba and true or not, he has no chance to be nominated now. There is no way the liberal media will let Republican voters pick their candidate! If you don’t understand that, you understand nothing!
What can the guy say at this point? Even if his life was filmed from start to finish the nuts would say it’s all fake footage.
The MSM and Socialist(D) politicians know that Obama cannot win again without an extremely weak candidate like Mitt. Give them a successful Black Man who’s Conservative? They are horrified.
Actually, he did deny it.
If there was any question as to why we never get a conservative president, this is why. All they have to do is hint of impropriety and let the circular firing squad do the rest.
They won’t stop until every conservative is eliminated from this race.
I agree with you. It will be Romney. The deck was stacked right from the start.
Oh they’ll come out with damaging hit pieces on him but not til next summer.
So you think media has less on Newt or Mitt?
Independents don't like Newt. It does not matter if Newt can win a debate he can't get elected.
Congratulations on destroying the Republican ticket all together.
The Republicans are so stupid I'm calling it now. Obama will get another 4 years!
13 years is a long time. When she describes the birthmark on the inside of his thigh, we know he’s in trouble.
Herman certainly wouldn’t be the first “playa” in the oval office.
Exactly. They’re not going after Bachmann and Santorum because you don’t bring out a hammer to kill a fly. And flies pose no threat to the MSM’s plans to ensure Obama has a smooth path to re-election.
According to Cain’s lawyer, we aren’t supposed to ask about Newt’s private sex life, so I guess it’s all good now.
Support another Rino and you’re supporting Obama. 08 was a lesson for the GOP, seems like they are trying to be stupid again.
Do you know for a fact what his private parts are? And why should you care? I don’t expect politicians to be saints.
Lets see...FDR, JFK, Bubba...
Truman, LBJ and Carter were to GD stupid and the one we have in now is a drag queen.
Good bye Republican Party (waving my middle finger at them)...
For the record I will NEVER VOTE FOR ROMNEY! He's a Liberal at best Socialist at worst.
Newt Gingrich is unelectable. Independents hate Newt Gingrich and the Media and Press will destroy him. You are kidding yourself if you do not believe that for one second.
The Left along with the media and press know this already. It's why they are targeting Cain. Cain would be the hardest for Obama to defeat.
Newt found God just in time for the primaries? When he stopped treehugging w Pelosi and cracking on right wing social engineering? Great! And if you think there isn’t a ton of private shenanigans with Newt that is just waiting to come out...can’t wait to see you spin it with the exact opposite arguments you use to bash Cain.
His sex life is none of my damn f*ckin’ business. That’s why I have zero interest in these prurient allegations!
And yet we hear nothing from the media about Bambi’s homosexual affair with his Paki college student friend and Larry Sinclair and the other gays in Rev. Wright’s racist Chicago church, the Man’s Country Fag Club/Bath house on the North Side.... etc. What about the murder/execution of the choir members that were also on the down-low with Bambi?
Circular firing squad for social conservatives. Set up by liberal conspirators.
Social Conservatives: the RATs are playing you like a violin.
You know... its the timing of this story that interests me - and this woman’s motives. What does she want? Money, fame or notoriety? It doesn’t sound like Cain. But then again, he has allegedly been reckless with his marriage for 13 years. And yeah, I think his wife would know if this was true!
Timing shows to me he is still polling well enough that he is still a serious threat. We gotta be force fed Newt or Romney and this brutha is messing it up
Sounds like you've heard more than enough about that.
Maybe what you've heard is all there is.
Agree but for some reason Republicans actually believe he appeals to independents.
Republicans need to understand why the Media and Press are attacking Cain when they say Newt is on top? They need to understand the Media and Press are NOT their friends. SO they need to quit listening to them and believing their lies.
You are right, but the denial was not in the statement I read and was referring to.
having seen many of the lawyers and cases in the real world courts, it would seem more are about an excuse for a payday jackpot from a fired employee than about actual harassment anymore.
lawyers are just trying to make everything into a harassing statement. (ie may I borrow a pencil, have a nice day, etc.)
I write in Palin or Cain no way in H@!! am I voting for Romney.
For all those out their bla bla bla you give us Obama again, I am sorry, in the words of Fonzie sit on it.... I have had enough of the RNC / GOP feeding me a Merde' sandwich and telling me it is Nutella...
