” Romney or Perry behind this? Take your pick. “

Nope.
A former board member contacted Politico.
“ The first woman was identified to POLITICO
by a former association board member
and her identity was confirmed by two additional sources.”
This particular board member was not told about the Cain settlement until he or she attended a board meeting and
trade expo in 1999.
The board member was upset that he or she wasn’t aware of the settlement earlier.
“What I took offense at was that it was clear that rather than deal with the issue, there was an effort to hush it up.
She was offered a way out to keep quiet.”

lol @ “he or she”. If it’s a “he”, then I guess Cain will be able to get the GOProud vote /major, major sarc

Seriously, I want names. I wanna see if these board execs can be traced to a campaign, or if they were just trying to extort more money out of him.

If that’s true, this is looking really bad for Cain.

A third party, likely a Democrat, is offended that she as a board member was not consulted prior to a settlement. The board likely had a committee to do such things or the president had inherent authority. This is not persuasive.

The fact that Politico mentions these irrelevant circumstantial facts indicates that they are grasping at straws.

Cain is saying nothing because he doesn't need to. Confidentiality agreements seal this.

In any event, there was no touching, just alleged innuendos.
