After silence from fellow Cain accusers, Kraushaar backs off
Herald-Mail ^ | November 10, 2011 | Melanie Mason

Posted on 11/11/2011 12:42:01 PM PST by sevinufnine

Joel Bennett said Thursday his client, Karen Kraushaar, spent several days reaching out to two women whose complaints about Cain’s past inappropriate behavior have been detailed—anonymously—in media accounts.

“Despite diligent efforts, she has not heard from these two women,” Bennett said in a statement.

That may be true, but they will look like whackjobs at that point.

Quit worrying over nitwits.

Trying to resurrect these people will hurt them more then it will Cain and they know it.

That’s comforting to know. Thanks.

I agree with you whole heartily.

Juan Williams is not my favorite FOX commentator, but he has stood up for Herman Cain through thick and thin.

I suspect he has walked in Herman Cain's shoes. They are about the same age and have had more than likely the same struggles.

I have a new respect for Juan Williams, and my respect for Charles Krauthammer, Karl Rove, Brit Hume and Sean Hannity have diminished substantially.

THANK YOU JUAN WILLIAMS.....I thought I'd never see myself say that!

Remember how many sexual assault claims were levied against old Cigar Bill? A number of women came forward ALONE. That took guts and they didn’t appeal to anyone else to come sit with them for a group chat on what happened to whom. They stood ground on their own accusations, which we all know in that case were true.

Just think this old gal went to work everyday and things were great for years, then this story hits the news and people she has known for years do not wish to be caught alone in the same room with. Justice is sweet.

I don’t think they wanted this to be believable. I think they took a shot at wagging the dog and it fell flat on its face.

If Cain gets the nomination, it wouldn’t surprise me if Cain trots this out and uses the Chicago ties in commercials. “Obama became a Senator by assassinating the character of his opponent.” “Coincidence?”

I think this entire sordid mess has hit many good African-American men right where they live. Bad enough to be a white male accused of sexual harassment in this day and age, but when it’s a black man? The horrific old stereotypes of oversexed, crazed black men preying on innocent white (especially blond) women are still alive.

There have been many times when I have groaned, “Oh Juan!” when he’s been totally wrong on an issue, but the pain is palpable in his face and his entire demeanor on this issue. I do believe he’s a good man, hopefully he’ll come to realize who the real racists are.

They always have to go to the bathroom, or accuse potential Presidents of sexual harassment, together, in groups of 3 or more...

I have to laugh!

Juan is right now going on about something liberal and yet he’s wearing the lovely English poppy ornament that everyone wears on Remembrance Day (Veterans Day) in England. He must have been over there in the last week. And yet he is yammering on about something liberal.

Well, to give away a little secret, I’m a woman myself and don’t get along with most other girls. Why? Cannot take pettiness. I’m one of those who like to hunt, fish, have never worn makeup...prefer to work with men...and am not afraid to speak the truth, which is why most women don’t like me either.

AND...I prefer to go to the bathroom alone :)

I love Cain. God please let him win the nomination!

Certainly would make smart sense, on their part.
No doubt some of these women may have been scared by the Woods lawyer threat. Like you say, if the stakes grow, so will the pressure to come forward.

Don’t know much about Woods beyond Jewell, Ramseys and Condit, its highly likely some bigger gun could show up to stand with them.

It is not a smart move for Cain to expect this thing to just evaporate. He better find a GOOD way to resolve it, NOW.

Especially cigars, Miss Marmelstein, especially cigars.

Cigar Aficionado had a spread with Anne Archer once. She loves cigars, and there’s something about a woman broad enough to have tried and acquired a taste for cigars.

It’s often the case that men meet women on their terms, and so seldom the reverse. A woman who enjoys a cigar is automatically intriguing.

There was a reason Cain had his attorney preface his remarks at his presser...and it worked.

I’m more into whiskey and highly salted foods than cigars, but my husband smokes them so I understand the allure. I love food fanatics and loathe, absolutely hate food nazis.

Maybe you need to check out the new FR thread showing his poll numbers are slipping across the board. That women’s intuition apparently does not like the way this is being handled.

The lawyer is there to intimidate, not sue anyone for libel. Yep maybe it worked on atemporary basis, but if he get the nom, watch out they will be back this time with bigger guns than just Allred.

Maybe you better actually read the polls and see Cain is still in the lead. so despite the worst smear campaign in US History, Cain still wins.

What is not a smart move is to try and pimp the smear. Conservatives don't like campaign workers, supposedly on the GOP side, who pimp baseless smears in the hopes it aids their candidate.

No he has made a wishful perdiction. People pimping this notion that “they are just waiting” have no notion on how PR works. Come back later they have NO credibility. No one will pay attention later cause “that is all old news”.

Their PR window is now and it is closing.

All the other FOX people were willing to throw Cain under the bus but not Juan. It does speak well for him.

First of all Thank You for your service, on this Veterans Day!

Now I am hopeful you can remember the selflessness you showed in defending America and quit trying to fit the mould of “if we could buy you for what you’re really worth and sell you for what you think you’re worth, we could quit working”.

FYI, I have been voting for real Conservatives in the GOP a mighty long time, in all likelihood “before your time” and the only way I’d ever support Mitt is if he is the nominee against nobama, so don’t pose some kindergarten question you have no fact to base it on thinking it makes you sound kool.

If you would care to have an adult and respectful discourse concerning any candidate or issue, I’m your guy. Otherwise I don’t care to waste my time with some 3rd grade BS.
