Cain Accuser's Lawyer Said Case "Leaked to Politico by a Board Member of Natl Restaurant Assoc"
CNN ^ | 11-01-2011 | Montag813

Posted on 11/01/2011 5:42:13 PM PDT by montag813

The lawyer for one of the Cain accusers, Joel P. Bennett, just told the panel on Anderson Cooper's CNN show that it was "his understanding" that the allegation was "leaked to Politico from a Board member of the National Restaurant Association".

Could it have been the former President of the NRA who took over after Cain left, who is a Romney supporter?

I like Cain, but can he go two hours without giving an interview? He needs cool it on the interviews.

As the money has started to flow into the Cain campaign, you'll see him do fewer interviews.

He didn't have the money to advertise, so he chose the route less followed -- do every show you can get your face on. And deal with the consequences.

It was the only way a guy with a shoestring campaign chest could get exposure.

And it served him well.

Why would Cain jump into this and say that it could be democrats or it could be Republicans?

That’s a little offensive...I agree that Cain should cool it and shut up for a minute.

Is he keeping this alive for some reason? I wonder, because this whole smear has caused an upbeat in his fund raising.

This whole thing is getting a little weird.

Sadly, if it was from the Romney camp (my belief) we may never know. MSM has wants Romney as the candidate, just as they wanted McCain.

It would make sense that Romney is behind the attack. If Cain is guilty of harassment and the Dems knew about it, it would come out after we nominate Cain.

We need to vet this out. Don’t want a shoe to fall during the campaign.

What I’m kinda wondering is why this is still such a hot story ...

When did it break? About 5 days ago?

It seemed like a bogus story from the start. Altho I’m not a Cain supporter, I posted that opinion on the first thread ever about this.

It just seems like such a nothing story... who and what is keeping it alive?

I think it’s time for Cain to shut the lid on it. I think he should say that he’s explained he never harassed anyone and unless someone can prove more than what’s been proved, he’s moving on and not answering any more questions about it.

He might get a little criticism for that, but it would put a stop to it ... I think.

POTUS is a figure head a lot like the Queen of England but in Obama’s mind KING of America.

They may be the leader of the country but the laws that governed are separate.. i.e. made up buy the Legislative, governed buy the Judicial and carried out by the Executive branches. (Yeah you know this).

Obama is clueless yet a supposed constitutional scholar. We’ll see where that lead in the future.

The internet is full of interesting stories...
"I wouldn't want to be the guy to make a speech after Herman Cain," allowed Ron Magruder, the NRA's new chairman of the board and chairman of the eight-person committee that selected Anderson. "But Steve will do well."

Cain, the evangelic orator from Omaha, Neb.-based Godfather's Pizza, agreed in 1996 to oversee the NRA for three years... Cain is credited with bringing a corporate mentality to the NRA and restructuring the association and its educational foundation into more efficient organizations. Under Cain's watch the NRA also increased its political clout, recently having been named the country's 15th-most powerful lobbying group by Fortune magazine.

A native of Illinois, Anderson first worked for Fred Harvey Restaurant outside of Chicago. After graduating from Cornell College in Iowa he worked on Capitol Hill for Rep. John Anderson - no relation - who made his bid for the presidency on the Independent ticket in 1980. That same year at the age of 25, Steve Anderson ran for Congress but lost in the Republican primary to Lynn Martin, who would later become both a good friend and President George Bush's secretary of labor."

“Why would Cain jump into this and say that it could be democrats or it could be Republicans?”

He's only saying what the rumors are. All you have to do is search through the headlines here to see that both theories have been discussed. I think it was Obama’s people, but could also believe it was Romney's people. One reason is that Romney hasn't come out in support of Cain against these outrageous charges. Cain has been his friend and was a Romney supporter in the last election.

excerpt:

"...the woman tells how Gore greeted her at the door of his room at the Hotel Lucia for the 11 p.m. appointment with a hug that "went on a bit long," then quipped "call me Al." Hotel staff had told the licensed therapist when booking her that the client was Al Gore, but that he was going under the name "Mr Stone."

Gore allegedly asked her to focus on his abdominal area and adductors -- the inner thigh muscles -- as well as his back and other areas.

While his lower body was covered with a sheet, she said, Gore "became vocal" with "muffled moans" and asked her to go lower, getting angry when she refused.

"It appeared he was demanding sexual favors or sexual behaviors," the woman said.

She then asked Gore to show her where he wanted to be massaged and he "grabbed my hand, shoved it down under the sheet to his ***** **** area, my fingers brushing against his ***** and firmly planted my hand on his pubic crest region and said to me 'There!' in a very sharp, loud, angry-sounding tone."

The woman told police she was caught in "a perfect storm" in a room with someone who was "Teflon-coated in terms of his credibility and celebrity status"..."

Police specifically responded to claims by the woman -- who said she remained clothed through the alleged encounter -- that she had noticed her black slacks had "stains" on them.

Police said they did not collect her attire because they believed it would not provide evidence.

“At this point, the Police Bureau does not consider this an ongoing investigation unless new evidence is received in this case,” Wednesday's police statement said.

ALL THE EX-PRESIDENT'S SCANDALS
Nurse backs up Clinton rape charge
Attended Broaddrick's wounds after alleged assault in Arkansas

June 26, 2003

[a few excerpts from article...]

Kelsey recalls Broaddrick saying the meeting with Clinton began with small talk, and "she was a little surprised he was by himself."

"She said he was showing her locations outside the window there in Little Rock, and then, all of a sudden, he just kind of grabbed her and started kissing her," remembers Kelsey.

"He overtook her and pushed her to the bed, and from that point on it was just a rape."

Kelsey says Broaddrick explained how her lip became swollen: "He bit her lip to try to keep her from struggling with him."

At the National Restaurant Association, she is leading the organization’s mission to help its members “build customer loyalty, rewarding careers and financial success” and “lead America’s restaurant industry into a new era of prosperity, prominence and participation, enhancing the quality of life for all we serve”.[4] She also serves as the CEO of the National Restaurant Association’s Educational Foundation.[5]

Well, he’s saying too much in my opinion. Even insinuating that it might be a Republican is wrong and will only stir up speculation.

I don’t think he would insinuate that it is Romney because, ironically enough, although this forum does not allow Romney supporters per se, it absolutely worships Cain who has been a Romney supporter and may still be.

Already, some of the anti-Perry nuts are trying to blame Perry which is ridiculous.

So it could be an "establishment republican," this this seems to have the fingerprints of Obama all over it.

I agree....it could be a Repub, but it has all the evil & sadistic earmarks of a left-wing RAT bastard 0dumb0 demoRAT, looking to smear & destroy a black conservative Republican. I think that Hermann Cain is one of the few Repubs who has balls and will challenge the media about all the dirt they are covering for 0dumb0 -- his qualifications or lack thereof to be pres___ent, his shady past & illegal financial ties with Tony Rezko, his lack of school records & transcripts, his multiple social security numbers, his Connecticut social security number, etc. and the list goes on. At some point, we gotta have a rock solid conservative Republican with the BALLS to openly challenge 0dumb0 on every one of this shady & illegal past ventures.

Before you fine folks get all twisted up, one way or the other, I strongly suggest you find and either read, if it is available on CNN, or...view the questions asked and the answers given, from the Cain accuser’s lawyer. IMHO, he is not well versed on the agreement, cannot recall what really happened and could barely utter any meaningful content during his responses to simple law questions. I do hope that someone in the Cain camp witnessed and heard this interview. Whatever is coming does not appeared to be fine tuned. I would suggest the Cain legal folks get a rap sheet on this attorney. IMHO, he is far from the sharpest knife in the drawer. Should be intersting!!! GO HERMAN!!!

Fascinating. Note this common thread continues with Sweeney's predecessor at the National Restaurant Association, Steven C. Anderson, who like Sweeney also attended George Washington University (The Legislative Affairs Program for Graduate Study).

And now the interesting part, courtesy of *gasp* Politico:

"Before establishing himself at the vanguard of GOP outside group politics, Carl Forti, traveled a rather conventional path through the ranks of the professional Republican class. He started out in the mid-1990s doing digital editing for a small ad firm run by Paul Wilson, a veteran GOP consultant who hired Forti after coming to speak to his political strategy class at George Washington University."

A graduate of George Washington University's Political Communication program, Carl Forti was Romney’s 2008 political director. And is now doing the same thing with Karl Rove’s American Crossroads.

Two consecutive CEOs of the National Restaurant Association, both alumni of George Washington University, along with Romney's 2008 Political Director...hmmm...

Oh please. Romney’s not hurt by this at all. The people supporting him are liberal leaning or believe he’s most electable. The only time Romney bled his base was when Perry led intially because he was believed electable then.

The same 25% are going to stick with Romney. Dirty tricks by his campaign are nothing new and they are okay with it. And it’s not like Cain is above capitalizing on dirty tricks himself to boost his own campaign.

The only way this would hurt Romeny is if the rest of the 75% united around Cain defensively in reaction to the story but that in part you’d think would only happen if there was no truth to the allegations.

"The first woman was identified to POLITICO by a former association board member, and her identity was confirmed by two additional sources. The former board member recalled learning of the woman’s departure at a 1999 association board meeting and trade expo in Chicago."

This is pre-Sweeney. This is when Anderson was named CEO to replace Cain.

I'd rather not see politico propaganda here. They in conjunction with FNC are in cahoots to smear Cain. Every pro FReeper comment was deleted. I posted atleast 5 none made it on their thread, since they want to belittle this website.

I'm all for either Boycott Politco, or Occupy Politco, either way I'd ban their articles, since they are on a full assault mission against JR and Free Republic.

BTW many other FReepers were censored on the Fox News forum. So I guess atleast we got some free advertising via Karl Rove's smear machine!

The best response, as someone has said, would be to say ...I don’t really care.

Come on — that’s what the libs did w/ Clinton. They just carried right on and stayed united behind their guy.

This country is in a huge mess. Europe is about to collapse. I for ONE refuse to get caught up in some silly tit for tat over whether Herman offended some LOSER at the NRA 20 years ago. It’s IRRELEVANT to my own personal life which hangs in the balance right NOW.

Get this GD economy FIXED. That’s all I want. I don’t care WHAT these guys do in their bedrooms, in the boardroom, or elsewhere. Just LEAD.

Well at least he’s not trying to bury it like a career politician would. It’s refreshing to find someone willing to take this kind of dirty politics head on.

It could still be the Dems. Maybe they planned to take out Cain and Romney at the same time. Take out Cain with a sexual harassment charge and leak that it was Romney. Two for the price of one.

Bingo-I think you have hit the jackpot. That’s exactly what I think is going down.

Why would the NRA want to stop a pro-gun republican in favor of a anti-gun RINO?

I don't think it was Perry, because someone went after him with the “Nxxx” rock. But it is interesting that the attorney is saying it was someone on the NRA board. My vote is for Obama’s people, and next most likely is Romney's people.

Guys, the man who replaced Cain at the NRA was Steven C. Anderson Who is a major Romney supporter. The only people with access to those files are the Victims, and the NRA. Politico said in their first article that they did not talk to the victims.

wait a minute now, how do we tell the difference?

That may have been Herman's point.

This sounds like Axelrod to me. He got sealed divorce records leaked in Brack’s senate race to take out his serious challenger.

Former President of National Restaurant Association has Ties to the Mitt Romney Campaign

Former President of National Restaurant Association has Ties to the Mitt Romney Campaign 0diggsdiggBased on a suggestion from a local blogger to look into political donors on the Board of Directors of the National Restaurant Association for potential ties to presidential campaigns, I have attempted to identify anyone privy to inside information about the National Restaurant Association who also has recent ties to any presidential campaign.

According to the October 2011 FEC report for ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT INC. a gentlemen named Steven C. Anderson gave $1,000.00 on July 14, 2011. FEC search function here.

Steven C. Anderson is the same gentlemen who took over the helm as Chief Executive Officer at the National Restaurant Association (after a brief intermission) upon Herman Cain's departure in 1999. As CEO it is highly likely he would have been privy to details of litigation and threats about litigation from the immediately previous tenure of Herman Cain.

There is little more than a coincidence between the support for Mitt Romney and the likelihood that Mr. Anderson knows the background of the sexual harassment threats. Nonetheless, watchers of this scandal endlessly pontificate about whether President Obama or a rival campaign is the driving force behind the bombshell story that appeared in the Politico on Sunday.

Reporters should follow-up with Mr. Anderson to discern his knowledge. At the least he likely knows the short list of people with inside knowledge about the sexual harassment allegations.

~23:15 11/1/11 UPDATE: Apparently as this post has taken on a life of its own I need to clarify a few things.

1. This truly is the exact same Steven C. Anderson at the same address that gave donations while at the National Restaurant Association in the early 2000’s.

2. I have purposefully not listed his address, and made it slightly difficult to find. There is an error in the FEC database that leads to a mistaken link for those who dig deeper. Rest assured he made the donation.

3. He may not be the source. If he is not, then he likely knows the short list of people who could have been the source.

Lastly, do not forget to follow @ppradoslaw on Twitter as I broadcast to thousands of conservatives libertarians, and a handful of patient moderates, democrats, and progressives.

Better to have this aired now rather than a year from now.
