Business Insider ^ | 11/07/2011 | Zeke Miller

Posted on 11/07/2011 7:20:51 AM PST by SeekAndFind

A fourth woman will claim that Herman Cain sexually harassed her while at the National Restaurant Association in a press conference today, RadarOnline first reported early Monday.

The woman will be represented by Gloria Allred, the Los Angeles-based attorney who represented one of the women involved in the Anthony Weiner twitter scandal earlier this year.

The press conference will be at 1:30 p.m. at the Friars Club in New York City.

How credible are these allegations from the years 1996-99 when he was with the Restaurant Association? You mean to tell me he’s never been in a position to sexually harass any other woman in the past 12 years? If he was the serial harasser the press wants us to believe he is, why haven’t there been any allegations from women since his RA days? That’s why all of these allegations are a bunch of BS!!

Yeah, that’s what I’m thinking. They’re gonna have to dig up a few women from the Burger King years if they want any credibility.

There is an emerging pattern from n00bs posting on the Herman Cain threads ... perhaps exposing the axelrod talking points to be ‘Herman should face the press and take all questions’, thus the leftist trap can be sprung on Herman. I hate democrats, and I loathe their agitprop lying Internet operatives pretending to be conservatives on consewrvative websites. Scum and villainy they are

Bill Clinton’s reputation as a lech was fully established as a Democratic nominee. The media knew that he was a molester and rapist and the media circled the wagons around him.

The same media are seeking out damaging stories about Herman Cain, in hopes of knocking him off the platform.

That’s the difference and it’s dispicable.

Allred is a known democratic operative. How many politicians has she torpedoed, almost all republicans.
It has become a cliche for allred in her red suit to show towing some women in front of the cameras to claim that she was harassed by a republican candidate who is threatening to unseat an unpopular democrat.
I believe there are enough volunteers to claim vague uncomfortable feelings around Cain everyday from now until after the election.

This has nothing to do with morals, democrats don't have any. It has everything to do with creating enough doubt in conservative women to keep them away from the polls.

The fact that he paid a settlement doesn’t look good either. I support Perry over Cain, but if Cain is innocent, he needs to address this issue, not ignore it. The left will grow it if he doesn’t fight it.

Oh please. John Edwards was most likely a big cheater for years, but we never heard from Gloria.

Edwards was having an active affair with Rielle Hunter while running for POTUS.

When the news broke, Edwards flat out denied he had an affair and a child with this woman. He even used campaign funds to hide her out and deny his child.

Where was Gloria Allred?

Another Perrybot heard from. You wouldn't know a fact from a turd. The NRA stated over the weekend that Cain fought the accusation and wasn't party to the agreement. He paid no such settlement; the NRA did on their own after he had left the organization (and before the claim was made, BTW). Nor was he party to the settlement. And because of that, he had no idea what was coming out from the accused because he wasn't a party and Politico refused to tell him what was going to come out.

Either get your facts straight or stop posting swill.

“She CAN SAY ANYTHING, and thats the problem.”

She can say it but she can also be sued for libel if its not true. My guess is that it will be mostly vague innuendo. Like “The way he looked at me made me uncomfortable”. Or “He sat too close to me or stood too close to me”. Some garbage like that.

This is actually more like Anita Hill. Couldn’t get the women who had a settlement on the record to come forward, so let’s try uncorroborated hearsay.

***Interesting that all the claims are during his years at the NRA***

Headquartered in Washington DC. Home of the perpetual victims and politically correct crowd.

I just hope that Herman Cain was not sucked into the ‘partying lobbyist’ mentality against his better judgement. He may have discerned this was not ‘his venue’ since he was only there for 3 years.

Clinton had a bimbo eruption squad. There was a telephone recording, if I am recalling correctly. The accusers had faces and names. He had a general reputation. Ultimately there was the dress. I am wondering if any of these accusations were made or bubbled beneath the surface when Cain ran for political office before, or is this all brand new?

One of my dearest FReeper FRiends is a Southerner. His speech is constantly peppered with such endearments as “Bless Your Heart,” “Darlin’”, “Sweetie”, “Love Ya’ Hon”, etc. At first it was a bit off-putting to me at first, as I am from a large northern city, and those expressions were not part of my vocabulary.

Herman Cain is a Southern Black Man who was raised in this milieu. I am sure he used expressions like this all the time. It is most probable that the words like “Darlin” escaped his lips on many occasion. That being said, it is NOT sexual harassment. What Klintoon did WAS. Any woman who has experienced TRUE sexual harassment, molestation, or rape MUST view these accusations with contempt. There is enough of the REAL THING around without lynching innocent people for their speech patterns.

Honest FR conservatives will note the source and withhold judgement until we have more details from neutral sources.

Campaign trolls will promulgate the liberal hatchet jobs in some kind of misguided attempt to give their candidate advantage.

And then will yelp like scalded dogs when the MSM attacks their candidate in a similar manner. Completely unprincipled and hypocritical.

I believe a man is innocent until proven guilty. I have nothing against Herman Cain. Attacking Perry supporters will not help Mr. Cain. Perry has been falsely accused of things, too.I’ve noticed on other threads you are no friend of Rick Perry’s So be it. I will send Rick a small donation this afternoon on your behalf.
Conservatives/Republicans are setting themselves up to lose this next election by eating their own. Why do you want to be a part of that?

He didn’t pay a settlement, his association did.

It means nothing to pay a small settlement. It is cheaper than lawyer fees and keeps publicity down. If the association had fought it, it would have created bad publicity that would have created a bad reputation that would have been even more expensive to repair.

It sucks, but that’s the way it is. Anybody can create this kind of accusation and pretty much get away with it, because no matter how true it is or how the accused deals with it, he’s hooped. Even if he wins in court and completely proves his innocence, his reputation is in almost-permanent disrepair.

The Statute of Limitations on the filing of a sexual harrassment charge has long since been passed for Cain’s tenure at the NRA. That said it does’t keep someone from going public in an effort to extract money in some other fashion or for some other reason.
