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.

Thanks for today's advice word from the Romney campaign.

Word to the wise, when confronted with a sleazy political smear, the best response is to laugh at the smear-bots

The irony is dripping - Gloria “Allred” is even properly named. At last we have a commie/femiNazi who has a descriptive and accurate name.

It is pun and fun time, folks!

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

LOL The “Good Wife” had an episode on last night where the associates had to take a course in sexual harrasment and anything as simple as saying “good morning gorgeous” could be construed as being sexual harassment.

Does a pat on the bottom with a newspaper by a peer (male) standing next to me after a board meeting count as “sexual harassment?” Happened to me many years ago....the guy was a fellow board member, older than me and a DEMOCRAT whose wife was going after Clarence Thomas.....I LAUGHED at him! But, there were people in the audience (we were just finishing a Board meeting) who gasped when they saw it. Maybe I should file suit? Maybe I should have complained? (Too late, he passed away 16 years ago). This is all so ridiculous.

I thought Cain wasn’t going to talk about sexual harassment anymore and move on with his campaign.

Personally, I’m loving it - and you could call me evangelical. They are not talking about harassment allegations. They are talking about the harassment allegations against Cain.

There really is a huge difference. And if they can somehow blunt the harassment inequality that has been going on now (i.e. women claim it and it is therefore true by virtue of that simple fact), that is a good thing as well.

Sure, which is why your posting history shows you regularly trashing Cain.

How about this, make a case FOR you candidate, don't just trash talk the other ones.

I am an evangelical, and I LOVE Cain’s response. Part of his appeal is that he’s fearless and un-PC. Gloria Allred needs to be mocked, and if nobody else has the guts to do it, Cain will step up to the plate.

It’s only a matter of time. Bullypulpit was the opening salvo in the purge that’s inevitable when Perry drops out. The Perrybots will riot like Rodney King fans.

Several freepers said the same thing, that it was only a matter of time before Allred stepped in.

Yeah, being a small, natural blonde, I’ve had my share of what is termed sexual harassment. I’ve also done my share of what is termed slapping the sh1t of of idiots who tried that. Yes...even AT work!

During one of those painful sexual harassment things at work where we have to go learn how to act around one another (they are putrid)...I was one of 2 women in the room of about 20. The guy leading the seminar asked what I’d do if a man told me I had nice legs. My response was to tell him THANKS!.

The men just roared and the leader of that stupid seminar turned red. After that, he lost all control and we made that hour fun :)

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

Why would it be a problem? Unless you were born before the early ninety’s, when women became so hyper sensitive flirting in the office was the norm. Yes, even for married people...

Really, who gives a crap.

Evangelical here and I say go get the slandering media whore. Seriously, they aren’t flippant about sexual harrassment they are flippant about this media circus joke. To respond to Gloria Allred in anyway that gives her credibility is not smart. I say they are right on with how they are dealing with this.

—Cain’s wife needs to come into the spotlight and light those accusers up.—

Regarding this whole thing, I am reminded of how we finished off Japan in WWII.

I think his wife is the nuclear bomb they are waiting to drop at the right accusation.

They better cool it.

Why?

Being flippant about this subject will not go well with evangelicals.

Made this one laugh. Made her preacher farther say, "Now that is how a real man responds."

Also gives the impression that they don’t take harassment allegations serious.

Innocent people usually don't take the ravings of loons seriously.

a word to the wise.

Don't take advise from your enemies? Yes, that is the word.

Ha. Cain as the rorschach test once again. As a proud, card-carrying evangelical, I am pleased as punch that he is pushing back against false accusations with grace, humor, and strength. Evangelicals take note: Satan is a slanderer, it's the meaning of his name, and standing tall against a lie designed to destroy a person's good name is one of the most affirmatively Christian things a person can do in this life. For evangelicals who know their Bible, this is a time to rally 'round the flag of truth.

I hope some conservative women come out and start accusing democrats of sexual harrassment. And I hope someone accuses Huntsman of sexual harrassment. Then Cain can tell him he needs to put everything out there.
