    By any normal rules of politics, Cain should be toast. So what’s going on? The media and Cain’s detractors have over-played their hand. Politico, which broke the original story, published 94 articles on the allegations in under six days. Every other major publication followed suit. Yet despite the maelstrom, Cain’s accusers remain anonymous and the details of the allegations vague. There was a growing sense that Cain was being treated unfairly. Rather than mouthing slick talking points, Cain got angry with the journalists and claimed that he was the victim of a “high-tech lynching”. That echoed the ugly confirmation hearings...

    Herman Cain, a surprise leader in the Republican race for the presidency, acknowledged Monday that he was accused of sexual harassment while chief of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, but he denied wrongdoing in an episode that has consumed his rising candidacy. Facing the biggest test of his campaign just as it was demanding notice from a political world that had not seen him coming, Mr. Cain spent the day in a whirlwind of television interviews and news briefings that were originally supposed to highlight his economic plans but became an exercise in damage control. He maintained that...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republican candidate Herman Cain is denying a report claiming he was repeatedly accused of sexual harassment. In a statement to The Associated Press Sunday night, Cain's campaign said a media report that Cain was accused of sexual harassment at least twice during his tenure as the head of the National Restaurant Association isn't true and represents unfair attacks.

    Anita Hill said on Tuesday she testified truthfully in 1991 in accusing Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment and responded to a new book by the U.S. Supreme Court justice by saying he had unfairly attacked her character. It was Hill's first response to the Thomas memoir that denounces his former aide and liberal interest groups who wanted to stop his nomination to the highest U.S. court. "I'm really concerned that the approach that Clarence Thomas is taking now is so typical of people accused of wrongdoing. They trash their accusers ... and I don't want this to become the model...

    Soon-to-be Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Sunday that he could support Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia if President Bush nominates him to head the high court, but he bristled at the prospect that Bush could tap Scalia's colleague Clarence Thomas, calling him "an embarrassment." Asked by Tim Russert about Scalia as a possible chief justice, Sen. Reid told NBC's "Meet the Press," "I cannot dispute the fact, as I have said, that this is one smart guy." Reid added that while he usually disagrees with Scalia's opinions, "his reason for arriving at those results are very hard to...
