Skip to comments.Iowa radio host accuses Herman Cain of 'inappropriate' remarks (Politico continues hit pieces)

In a cryptic comment made at National Journals Election 2012 Preview event Tuesday, Mark Block, Herman Cains campaign manager, made reference to an incident involving Cain and a receptionist for a radio talk show host.
Asked by panel moderator Beth Reinhard whether he could guarantee that theres not more information forthcoming about his past, Block began his answer with a blanket denial, followed by what seemed to be a description of an unreported recent incident involving Cain.
Mr. Cain has never sexually harassed anybody. Period. End of story, he said. As the hours go by, its interesting that we even hear from a radio talk show host of Iowa that a receptionist thought that Mr. Cains comments were inappropriate.
POLITICO has learned that the incident involved a staffer for Steve Deace, an influential conservative talk radio host who hosts a nationally syndicated show in Des Moines. And Deace says he did take offense.
Deace, who penned an opinion piece critical of Cain earlier this month, told POLITICO in an email that Cain said "awkward" and "inappropriate" things to the staff at his station.
"Like awkward/inappropriate things he's said to two females on my staff, that the fact the guy's wife is never around...that's almost always a warning flag to me," Deace wrote. "But I chose to leave that stuff out [of the opinion piece] and make it about his record and not the personal stuff."
Pressed about what exactly Cain said to the employees of his show, Deace responded by describing how he himself treats his staff.

I listen to local sports talk radio, and the hosts all seem to be liberals, and they make all kinds of references to babes and chicks and so forth, and hot women, including women who work at the station, and feature pics of sexy babes on their website, and no one accuses them of sexual harrassment. Oh, I forgot, they aren’t black conservative politicians.
I think Cain said that no Iowa school will ever win a BCS championship. I think that’s pretty inappropriate.
I’m disgusted by this. I’m most disgusted by the pile on from so called conservative websites like Redstate and Hotair. I will make my first ever political donation today to Herman Cain’s campaign.
This is only going to get worse with unsubstantiated innuendo and the only thing Cain has to do is endure and keep fighting.
RE: He told the receptionist that she was pretty.
And is this receptionist the one making the accusation?
This Deace guy says the fact that Cain’s wife isn’t with him sends up a red flag? Talk about grabbing at straws. I suspect this guy is for some other candidate.
RE: I think I need to poop.
Is that an inappropriate remark?
I don’t know which is more inappropriate, that or Nancy Pelosi calling Tea Party folks ‘teabaggers’.
See definition of the word in URBAN DICTIONARY:
My wife’s getting one those on her truck whether she likes it or not. (But she will like it.)
Apparently he tells women they are “pretty” and this guy implies he “can’t control his urges?”.
Mr. Cain is an older, Southern gentleman.
Down here, we say “thank you” and smile the rest of the day if someone tells us we’re pretty.
I see your point, but don’t agree with it. Women spend billions of dollars trying to look good, and - within the bounds of traditional propriety - not PC madness - there’s nothing wrong in giving them their money’s worth, e.g., “That’s a nice outfit.”
Hot Air and Red State are nothing but controlled opposition. Ed Morrisey, Allahpundit and Erick Erickson are the worst of the worst in the “right wing” blogosphere.
almost nightly on ‘mainstream’ network television there are radically inappropriate and offensive material being aired
does anyone care? hardly. so why do i care about this?
Oh good, another Socialist for Christ.
We sure do have a lot of losers on our side.
Politico and the media are making fools of themselves and it seems the ambivalence of the public is driving them into some sort of insane obsession to destroy Cain. Hopefully Cain’s numbers will hold up and contributions will keep flowing into his campaign. We could be witnessing one of the most historical public repudiations of the main stream media.
They need to start getting these people under oath and polygraphed. And sued for slander/libel.
Let us Cain supporters become even more supportive of Mr. Cain. THIS KANGAROO0 COURT WILL NOT PREVAIL!
For our country’s sake, please read his book “This is Herman Cain”.
The Liberals have made a garbage dump out of our Constitutional Republic, and Herman Cain is willing to give his all to bring it back for us!
Be thinking of good conservatives who are not politicians to fill Congress with the fresh air of freedom loving men and women! Throw out the crusty Communists the career politicians have become! Invoke term limits, three for the House, and two for the Senate, with no pensions!
Stick with the man with the plan who can do what he says he will do. It will take the House and the Senate to help him. It’s now or never, folks. We either save the country or we throw it to the slob erring wolves!
