Cain Campaign Taunts Gloria Allred: What Took You So Long? [on Twitter]
Twitter and businessinsider.com ^ | November 7, 2011 | Zeke Miller

Posted on 11/07/2011 9:52:48 AM PST by smokingfrog

A twitter account associated with Herman Cain's campaign taunted Gloria Allred amid news that a fourth woman has accused the Republican front-runner of sexual harassment.

Allred is representing the latest accuser, and will accompany her at a press conference today.

The tweet from @CainStaff said: "Welcome to the campaign, Gloria Allred. What took you so long?" and links to the campaign's Iowa Fund, which seeks to capitalize on the allegations.

They better cool it. Being flippant about this subject will not go well with evangelicals. Also gives the impression that they don’t take harassment allegations serious.

a word to the wise.

I wouldn’t take false accusations seriously either. this assault is nothing more than what Cain said it was to be. A lynching of sorts.

Me thinks the left is so horrified of Cain’s honesty and how well he’s doing in the polls that they will dig up 100 women is need be. But...here’s my question. Why ONLY women from this restaurant thing? Why not anyone from anywhere else? I think it’s the fact there were several bad eggs that didn’t like a black man in charge...or women (black or white) who wanted sexual attention and couldn’t get it from Cain, so here we are.

He has my vote if nominated, period. I’m a preacher’s kid and not all “evangelistic” folks are blind to a smear compaign when they see one.

Why should they take them seriously. They are a sick joke.

Even a neo-feminist thinks so: ‘Sexual Harassment’: The New ‘Slip and Fall’ (It’s time to treat them the same)

Actually some misguided "evangelicals" imbeciles like Dr. Richard Land of the Baptist Convention is already in the tank for Ricky because he too supports amnesty for illegals.

Not an evangelical, so I need to ask... It is important to them to sit idly by while being slandered? Are people supposed to merely allow their character be attacked with no evidence of misdeeds?

Do they think people should let their careers and lives be destroyed by anonymous attacks?

Everyone here knows you are a perry supporter and you will post this trash as much as possible, anybody on FR that take allred as a serious source, need to move along to DU.

You are so right. That comment sounds as if they must have know something more was coming. Flippancy is not Presidential, as we all know from the one in office now, it is beginning to wear thin.

I am for Newt, Cain, Perry, Bachman, Santoram, not necessarily in that order. Just have to add this before I get called a PerryBot or Perrywinkle, or some other "BOT".

If there were any substance to these attacks, Let’s say they had video... and Cain crashed and burned, his supporters wound go to Newt not to Perry or Mitt.

Geeee....

I guess Allred listened to her Democrat over lords. Dragged a $100 bill though a trailer park and got a bite.

I’ll wager that the accuser will be black, loud and a hard core Dem with possible ties to ACORN.

Guess they haven’t figured that the more flak thrown Cain. The stronger he becomes.

Jack.

I want to know what a person is supposed to do when you did not sexually harass someone but people and women are saying you did. All I hear is come out and put everything on the table??? But what do you do when you dont know anyone and anything about it. Cool it, Id be pissed

All that sideshow has is this woman whom had never came forward ( even in the 90's) before now and Allred's "clout". Whatever she claims will be years outside of the statute of limitations and unless she has a stained dress or fingerprints on a a stained cigar then it's a she-said-she-said non-issue.
All Cain has to do is deny any knowledge, & deny an harassment of this woman. He should comment once and then state that's all he's going to comment on this non-issue.

When women start coming forward from his Navy Intel days and his Burger King Days, etc I'll start to question the illegitimacy of these allegations. Until then they are all bunk. A person doesn't just become a serial philanderer all of a sudden and then stop all of a sudden.

Holier-than-thou Evangelicals are the one who should quit it. These allegations are comedic at best and ridiculous oversensitivity at worst. Nobody is perfect.

I also have been questioning why all the charges are from the NRA years. My only concern is is that the msm will figure out this bit of fraudulence,too, and go out and find somebody who will claim to be from the Burger King/pizza years.

...BS! Republicans have been “cooling it” and losing elections. This is simply taking a page out of Alinsky’s book and turning it on the commies. They won’t do well with it either.

Cain’s wife needs to come into the spotlight and light those accusers up. I mean...Hitlery stood by her darling hubby Cigar Clinton. THAT was just fine and dandy. No one supporting him cared whatsoever. No problem.

Naturally, Cain being conservative makes all the difference in the world. If we moderates, GOPers, and independents don’t care, we have a problem.

Exactly. If you have done nothing wrong and deny it, you HAVE put it all on the table.

I am concerned this could be a real problem now that a named person will come forward.

Still, I think the campaign can get through it.

I agree that the Presidency requires decorum. But, at the same time, how else should one respond to Gloria Allred? She is nothing but a media whore and we should stop treating her like she’s to be taken seriously.

After Saturday, I’m all about a Cain-Newt ticket, in any order.

lol yeah based on everything that has happened so far they should have assumed they'd be left alone the rest of the campaign.

Cain's gone father than anyone imagined already. I'll let him handle these despicable attacks how he and his campaign see fit. Easy for you to armchair quarterback when it's not you being dragged through the sewer.

wilco, I agree.

I could less about what that poster “thinks” evangelicals will and will not do. I can tell you for a fact that I know a cubic dump load of self-confessed, voting, and politically active evangelicals and they recognize that Cain is getting railroaded and they support Cain.

Well Duhhh... Hell, I knew something more was coming and I never met the man. That’s just the way it works with smearing someone. And if this one doesn’t work there will be another yet.

It’s meaningless garbage and the Cain campaign should treat it as such.

Professional association organizations are by nature, ripe for accusations of this or that. Most of the employees are low level wage earners with no mentoring or reasons for loyalty. Most the people in charge are very wealthy persons from the underlying association industry who are there on a short term basis. It’s almost more of a service thing. The trade shows, limosenes, catered affairs, etc.... become something the clerk who processes convention registrations resent and feel cheated over. Anything for a payday.

anyone can make a claim based on no actual facts, with no evidence and no actual injury and get a claim settled if the company decides they don’t want to deal with it. I have seen it before and it’s pretty common in the DC metro area loaded with trade associations and non-profits.
A male gets promoted in a place with female employees and the accusations start to fly. Any perceived slight can be twisted into a career ending claim.

This is why I never want to be in charge of anything outside my own house or be in the position of hiring women.
