Skip to comments.Perry Camp Denies Leaking Cain Harassment Story, Fingers Romney Campaign
Posted on 11/02/2011 3:49:03 PM PDT by Perdogg
A spokesman for Texas Gov. Rick Perrys campaign is adamantly denying that members of the GOP presidential candidate's staff leaked a story has swamped Herman Cain's campaign this week. Instead, the Perry camp is pointing a finger at the campaign of another rival Republican, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, as a possible source of the report about the sexual-harassment charges levelled a decade ago against Cain by female subordinates at the National Restaurant Association.

Memo to Paul Ryan: Will you please reconsider so we can have at least one adult in this race?
Smokin’ Mark Block is clearing the air for the oven mit. Call out the magic bus...
At the end, when every candidate has been implicated by the other, they will all, in unison, blame Bush. In song.
You misunderstand. I’m not saying I or anyone else will or is abandoning him. I’m merely prognosticating. What I WANT and what is RIGHT is not the issue—we’d be in agreement there, I suspect.
"we've come a long way from Reagan's Eleventh Commandment"
I’m just glad Democrats didn’t leak it 11 months from now.
Why wouldn't they simply deny it, and say nothing more than that?
(A) Perry's camp knows it was Romney and they're helping Cain?
(B) Perry's camp did it, and they are shifting blame to Romney to deflect?
(C) Perry's camp has no idea who did it, and they are taking this opportunity to hurt Romney in an attempt for Perry to gain a few points?
The only option which shows any class at all is option A.
Perry has better a opposition research team than Cain, so they probably do know who leaked it.
I know one thing: This is all going to get real old, real fast. A month of this, and none of us will pay attention to ANYTHING negative about ANY candidate except Obama. LOL
Seriously. I’m starting to see that pop up on other sites already.
I’m not sure you can say “bush” - harassment laws, you know.
Might be able to get buy with “Bush”, as long as you don’t use it in a sentence like “I like Bush”, or anything.
Someone might be offended... /sarc
The rats must be laughing their tails off over this.
With the primaries all moved up, I'm afraid it is way too late for Ryan to change his mind now. A real shame as he might have been vastly better than this bunch we have to pick from.
You folks are falling into the idiot trap..Now they were trying to get ride of Cain so you people are going to make sure you send Perry down with him saying lies about him putting this out..Grow up people..
So much of the Reagan commandment
I know what you mean. I’m just hoping that the overwhelming conservative majority is not fooled by this media manufactured smear job. They’re trying to pick our candidate, just like they did in 2008.
Are you kidding? The story just broke 3 hours ago.
I bet Perry also denies he did not leak the George Bush DUI story when he was working with Gore.
Does anyone know how to find and post a photo of a genuine circular firing squad?
True, it might be gruesome, but it still could not convey the horror that the rat media shows the sheeple every day.
If you think this is all working to Cain’s advantage, you’re delusional. He’s made several rookie mistakes, the most blatant of which was to actually talk about an incident which was supposedly settled under a confidentiality agreement. Cain opened a can of worms that didn’t need to be opened.
And why blame Perry? What’s his evidence? Why would he blame a guy who’s at about 6% in the polls?
So far the handling of this scandal on the Cain side is amateurish at best.
