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.

35 and 45k? Before or after their shysters took their cuts, I wonder? Just curious :-)
“He has denied sexual harassment, but sexual harassment does not cover a consensual encounter.”
You better consult a Corp attorney on that before you enter into the business world in upper management.
Sweet..... Well it looks like Mr. Pollock or his editors are trying to save face.
Did Mr. Pollock try to make his story more juicy? No credibility.
Oh we don’t even know the truth yet..And the stakes are high here very high.
I'll caveat by saying that Cain isn't done if BOTH women are proven with metaphysical certainty to be lying.
Of course, that will never happen. Both women would probably have to publicly admit they were lying.
I understand that, for those who are less well educated.
It just shouldn't be the case here on FR where we're supposed to know better.
There is no implied guilt in this kind of settlement.
No named source, nobody for Cain to go after in court for slander.
The whole point is to take Cain down by a scandal that if her were a democrat the press would be circling the wagon, sitting on the info to help the democrat, and painting the women as sluts (reference: Clinton, Edwards, Kennedys).
They don’t care if it’s true or not. Not important. Just keeping the thing alive and out there continues to tarnish and smear. Keep doubt alive. That’s the agenda here.
I think the real story is the media hypocrisy and their blatant difference in how they treat democrat and republican candidates. If you’re their ideological buddy, they shield you. If not, they run with it even after it’s proven false. If any info doesn’t help them take you down or exonerates you, they will not print it.
"Did you get a screen print before refreshing it?"
Freeper luckeybogey got one- see comment #269.
BULLpucky. Women get drunk and sleep with men, then regret it, all the time. A man taking a willing drunk woman home is NOT rape. NOT, all day long.
Geez that makes me angry. If you get drunk, you have poor judgment, and that is your own damned fault. If you do something you regret, too damned bad.
Man this thread is moving fast. I still have to question why they would have posted the original. Does PJ not have an editor?
Oh yes there is implied guilt....too many story changes..as I said Cains not helping his situation...not handling this crisis well at all....it’s not so much this did or not happen..it’s how is he handling this...not well.
Don’t be concerned, the PJ media report has already had to be edited because “conservative” sources didn’t actually see them leave together. After they decided they had left together in a taxi(which they never saw)it is a foregone conclusion that she stayed the night at his apartment. This is called INNUENDO from word go! Shut up until you bring me the proof! is what I would say to the media.
“Not looking good: all it will take is the right amount of money to bring her forward.”
The truth is that the right amount of money could bring forth a thousand women who had never met Cain... That’s why there needs to be proof.
...and if you take a drunk back to your place it is equally poor judgement and setting yourself up for whatever. Booze and people away from home don't mix well in the end.
If they are lying, they might not have to admit to it. Not if their identities become public and we find out that one, both, or all make Crystal Mangum look like a choir girl.
“Its almost hilarious that the MSM is so prudish when it comes to GOP candidates. Sexual indiscretion is a badge of honor within the Dem party, but they go all Church Lady when a conservative might have done something off color”
That’s true. It’s one thing when they go after the hypocrite angle. You know, Republicans deserve what they get for being the Moral Majority party. Who cares about John Edwards, who belongs to the godless, goodtime, superfun, hippie part? Nevermind that they presented themselves as every bit as married as Mark Sanford.
But no, the MSM goes way beyond that and acts like the Moral Majority themselves, which confuses me. A story’s a story, and they will push whatever sells ads. But that was as true of Clinton as it was of Cain.
—I have higher standards.—
Me too. Unfortunately, my candidate was hung on a cross quite a while ago. He’s still around, but he’s not running for president.
Another version she shows up at work the next day, no one has actually seen anything all more made up BS.
