Posted on 11/03/2011 10:04:50 AM PDT by bbernard
Adding to the ongoing Herman Cain sexual harassment controversy, two sources have now confirmed to PJ Media that a female employee of the National Restaurant Association told associates she had been brought by Mr. Cain to his Crystal City, Virginia residence where she alleged he had taken advantage of me.
One source, a male, told PJ Media:
Herman took advantage of seniority and power with a young woman. It was an abuse of power.
Implying that coming forward with the accusations was an ordeal for the young woman, the source also said:
Who do you believe, a CEO or a mid-level staffer? It was unsettling for her to make charges.
The name of the woman who was in her early twenties at the time of the alleged incident has been confirmed by PJ Media. We have chosen not to reveal her identity for reasons of discretion.
Both sources, one male and one female, worked at the time mid-1990s for the governmental affairs department of the National Restaurant Association, as did the woman.

In the court of public opinion, people of fine character wait to see if there is a real accuser with a real story about a legitimate complaint.
The classless, Mitt-bots and Perry-bots, not so much.
No he just gives executive orders that give a cash bonus to the company his ex-Chief of staff works for (the Guardisil executive order). Let’s see, thoroughly documented by Perry himself and acting as if there had to be cash exchanged for it to be wrong, as opposed to unsourced accusations.
I noticed several places in this thread where members quoted the article saying “she woke up in his bed.”
So I read the article just now and it says she spent the night there “and woke up.” Period. Nothing about a bed. Has the PJ site deleted the bed?
She slept and “woke up” - a curious sentence - of course she woke up, where - the sofa?
You forgot to include the most important part:
“woke up in his bed.”
Anyone assuming this is TRUE, who posts here as a conservative on a conservative website and claims to be a THINKER, should be ashamed.
And another bullshiite n00b chimes in to pontificate on the completely unsubstantiated innuendo as if it is evidence just waiting to be aired. Axelrod filth you are.
There's also a BIG difference between an accuser who comes forward and names herself and one who doesn't.
Ah, thank you. :)
Here's a question.
What's the name of the supposed mid-level staffer?
This is not a Lewinski event. It is a Gennifer Flowers event.
Except this is completely anonymous and nothing but inuendo so far.
And Clinton still won.
And yet, he is beating the pants off of your candidate. Yep, da#N neophytes. Get a grip, Perrywinkle. Your guy was tied to the smear...deal with it.
Cain has 3 ghost bimbos haunting him and until they materialize and take responsibility for their allegations...well,there ain't no such thing as ghosts!
Now that the SRM is doing such a good job (sic) of covering this story, I’m sure that they will put forth the same effort to cover,and ask Zero about, the murders of Donald Young, Larry Bland and Nate Spenser. You will recall that all three were members of Zero’s Chicago church, all three were gay and all three were shot in the head within 40 days starting in November 2007. While they’re at it they can investigate, and ask the POTUS, what happened to Lieutenant Quarles who was close to finding out who accessed and scrubbed Zero’s passport records, and was also shot to death!
Good point. :)
It is called quid pro quo...you do this (go to be with me), I’ll give you that (promotion, raise, etc.). It is all neat and tidy until the boss doesn’t produce the raise, promotion, etc.
The PJM version doesn't have the words "in his bed." A HUGE difference here.
—Whether Cain did anything or not, Im starting to get this sinking feeling that it wont matter. They are hell bent on getting him out of the way. It will be hard to defend all of this crap.—
I agree, and anything worth having is hard. Just ask Clarence Thomas. They thought they were gonna Bork him, but didn’t expect him to actually fight back.
Cain is a fighter. You have to be to accomplish what he has. This is going to be fun for us observers and I expect Cain to win this one.
The article doesn’t say she woke up in Cain’s bed. It says:
“...took the woman by taxi to his apartment, where she spent the night and woke up.”
The word bed is not found in the article at all. Neither is the word sex.
When you go with someone to their apartment after a night of drinking, the assumption is you’re going to have sex. The fact that the article seems doesn’t meniton sex or a bed, but says “spent the night and woke up” is, well...a curious choice of words.
I’m not sure what to make out of this, other than the fact that there’s something missing from the story.
It's NOT a big deal to them. It is their hope, however, that it be a big deal with Republican (base) primary voters so as to knock Hermain Cain off the pedestal upon which he has been placed by said voters.
