    reuters ^ | 11/10/2011 | Tabassum Zakaria
    Herman Cain, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, has hired a high-profile defamation lawyer to keep an eye on the sexual harassment accusations made public by two women this week. Atlanta attorney Lin Wood told Reuters Thursday he was not hired to scare, intimidate or threaten anyone from making statements, but to monitor the accusations against Cain and respond accordingly. Wood, a top libel and defamation lawyer, was hired on Monday morning when it became clear that Sharon Bialek was about to become the first of four women alleging inappropriate behavior by Cain to go public with her accusations....

The audience (clapping) every time the questions strayed away from the sexual harassment charges, audience loved it. Reuters has a story with the headline: Cain Escapes Serious Damage in Republican Debate. However, they did point out that Herman Cain called Nancy Pelosi "Princess Nancy" as evidence that he's a sexual predator. I kid you not. And then Herman, I don't know why he did this, but he apologized for it this morning. I don't know why. How do you get that he's...

    The leader of a tea party group is calling for scandal-embroiled GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain to drop out of the race. Judson Phillips, the founding leader of Tea Party Nation, said Cain’s flailing response to sexual harassment allegations brought forward by several women was simply unacceptable. “Herman Cain has got to go,” Judson said in an email to Tea Party Nation members. “I do not believe Cain’s accusers. There are too many questions about them. The allegations are not why Cain should leave. The campaign’s response is why he should now withdraw.”

    Report: Bialek Fired from NRA for False Accustations of Sexual Assault November 8th, 2011 (3) Posted By Toro520. One might be asking themselves why Ms. Bialek was fired from the National Restaurant Association. After all, being fired, quite unlike simply being laid off, is a serious issue with serious ramifications; since leaving the Restuarant Association, Ms. Bialek has been unable to maintain regular employment. So why was this woman let go? Why has it seemingly affected her ability to remain employed for so long? Perhaps it might have something to do with the reason she was fired from the National...

    Going through the story that was laid out in the press conference today by Sharon Bialek, Levin has found a few ‘problems’ that necessitate more information. He said earlier in the show that he was unable to get Gloria Allred to book her client on his show, so he’s basically left with just questions that need answers. One such question is why, after Cain had already ‘upgraded’ Bialek’s hotel room and then took her out to eat at an Italian restaurant would Cain then ask Bialek why she was meeting with him. Another question would be why he took her...

The woman doesn’t want to reveal her identity or her side of the story.

Remember now the bar was raised impossible high by the media and establishment Liberals during the Bill KKKlinton Impeachment Saga, where oral sex, sexual harassment and lies were dismissed as a private matter and the personal failures of the Man in question. Women's groups even defended Bill KKKlinton actions as excusable at...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry says his campaign didn't provide the media with information about sexual harassment allegations against his GOP presidential rival Herman Cain. In an interview with the conservative blog RedState on Wednesday, Perry said he and his campaign learned about the allegations in a Politico story published Sunday.
  • Washington Post omits from it's website to help in the Cain Smear (Collusion alert)

    It starts with Rush's comments today: ===============RUSH: Folks... Folks, get this. The Washington Post story that I have been citing liberally here for the last ten to 15 minutes? There are two versions of that story. There is a story that appeared online yesterday and a second version where something has been omitted. I have here what has been omitted near the end of the story as it ran yesterday on the Washington Post website. Are you ready? (shuffling paper) Ahem. Ahem. This has been deleted: "Because the case is more than a dozen years old, Bennett," the woman's lawyer,...

    I don't know if there is more than one source or not, but, according to Politico, Chris Wilson, a Governor Perry supporter and pollster for the super PAC that supports Governor Perry, worked at the National Restaurant Association and is the (a?) source for the Cain/sexual harassment story. He said the episode of harassment occurred in a public restaurant in the 1990's and that many people knew about it. What is WEIRD about the Politico story and Chris Wilson, is that Chris Wilson would not or did not say what happened. The only reason that omission catches my attention is...

    RUSH: Okay, moving on now to the Herman Cain saga, last night I got a note from a friend. "Rush: The Politico website's gone nuts. They've just unleashed attack after attack after attack." So I went to The Politico website, I looked at The Politico website, and I started laughing because my friend was right. I just had a different interpretation. I looked at 'em as going over the edge. There must have been five or six different links to Herman Cain stories about "the women," about lawyers for "the women," about how Cain has blown up the security or...

    Joel P. Bennett, the lawyer for one of the women who has made accusations against Mr. Cain, said that his client had decided not to go public or to make a public statement herself in an effort to shield herself from the media frenzy swirling around the situation. “She’s not going to affirmatively make any public statements or public appearances about the case, everything will be through me,” Mr. Bennett said. “She has a life to live and a career, and she doesn’t want to become another Anita Hill.”

    I’ve been struggling to put my finger on just what it is about how Politico handled the Herman Cain allegations that I find so offensive. Michael Walsh has a good explanation, Return of the Whipsaw, which starts and ends as such: First, posit the existence of a “story” as defined by Politico’s editors — doesn’t matter whether it’s true, relevant, or even recent. Actions that may have been acceptable, or at least non-actionable, in the past, no matter how long ago, can be re-framed in the context of current “morality,” and thus employed as handy blunt objects, journalistically speaking…. Fourth,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- A third woman considered filing a workplace complaint against Herman Cain over what she deemed aggressive and unwanted behavior when she and Cain, now a Republican presidential candidate, worked together during the late 1990s, the woman told The Associated Press on Wednesday. She said the behavior included a private invitation to his corporate apartment.

    Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain seem to have an outspoken ally-friendship in the media lately. Both Gingrich and Cain have been quoted saying positive comments about each other on the trail, which is a rarity in political campaigning. “We’re friends; let’s just lay it on the line. I like Herman. I’m proud of Herman’s career. I’m proud of the positive attitude he brings to life,” Gingrich told a local radio station WBS in Atlanta today. But how exactly did the friendship between Gingrich and Cain develop? It goes back about 16 years. On Monday, Cain called into a local Iowa...
