  • Karolyn

    Nothing would surprise me! He’s already lieing about it. Hopefully, the women will be able to tell their side.

    • arrt

      [offensive post removed]

      • Raggs

        Exactly… Karo is just happy that this happens to be a republican canidate on the other hand had this been a demonicrat she would have to bury her head.

        • JeffH

          Raggs, I beg to differ. Karolyn is just happy it was a “man”. The political persuasion is secondary to her all to often disgust of all things “men”.

          As to whether these allegations are true or not, aren’t you supposed to be innocent until proven guilty and isn’t it ironic(noy really) that these allegations surface while Cain has been beating the pants off of “Romney and Obama”(both are all about Big Government)in the polls. Don’t mistake my position as an endorsement for Cain…it’s how the game is played and in all reality stinks of the power of those who are controlling and running the game.

          • Karolyn

            Jeff – see my response to Dave below. I love men. I don’t know where you get the idea I don’t. The fact that I work for a domestic and sexual assault organization does not mean I hate men at all. Men get harrassed and assaulted too; and I would be on their side if warranted.

          • JeffH

            Karolyn, you’ve made it quite clear on more than one occassion where you stand on issues where sexual abuse, domestic abuse and any other abuses that involve men and women are concerned. You tend to denegrate the men first and foremost…as guilty rather than innocent until proven guilty.

          • Karolyn

            Jeff – Usually where there’s smoke, there’s fire. I do have animosity toward abusers, however, I also realize that they are sick individuals who only live how they were shown. SC is #7 in the country for women killed by men and #12 in rape. We live in what is called a rape culture. In general, women are still not as respected as they should be. It is a very sad and scary situation for women.

      • Robin from Arcadia, IN

        arrt… Does Karolyn sound racist to you?

        • Kinetic1

          Robin,
          No, but before his post was expunged Arrt sounded sexist. Ignoring his offensive language, Arrt asked how Karolyn knew Cain was lying. The answer is clear; just listen to him!
          “If the Restaurant Association did a settlement, I wasn’t aware of it and I hope it wasn’t much because nothing happened,”

          “I was aware that an agreement was reached. The word ‘settlement’ versus the word ‘agreement,’ you know, I’m not sure what they called it. I know that there was some sort of agreement, but because it ended up being minimal, they didn’t have to bring it to me,”

          “When I first heard the term settlement I thought [about] the legal term,” Cain said on Fox News today. “My recollection was it was an agreement… I didn’t think there was a legal settlement but an agreement.”

          First he can’t recall anything ever happening, then he can recall every detail of the encounter. First he doesn’t recall any “settlement”, then he recalls an “agreement” but not an amount, then he recalls a general number. Would you buy this from a Democrat?

          • DaveH

            It depends on what the meaning of is is, Kinetic.

          • Kinetic1

            DaveH,
            No argument, The “is” defense was a clear sign that Clinton was lying as well. That doesn’t change the facts about Cain though, does it?

          • eyeswideopen

            Kinetic, well now someone who worked with Cain on his 2004 election, has come forward and stated that “Cain admitted to him that there were settlements for harassment”. By the way, it was a Republican who is being honest. It won’t be the sex item that does him in, it will be the illegal election spending that has taken place recently. By the way has anyone seen the news that Romney is tied to a 8 billion dollar ponzi scheme? Perry, down, Bachman, down, Cain, down, who in the heck do you have left now that Romney is going down? Laughing all the way to the bank to change my account from those elitist big banks you all love so much. Guess what the other 75% of Americans are waking up to the fraud, corruption and lack of integrity that you conservatives are pushing upon us.

          • Joe H.

            eyes,
            you say the person worked on Cains party run, but do you know for a fact that they parted on amiable terms?? could this person just be trying to get even for some perceived slight?? BTW, I 100% for Paul, but what ever happened to innocent till PROVEN guilty??

        • Karolyn

          That is a stupid comment, Robin.

    • Kinetic1

      Karolyn,
      Part of the settlement was a non-disclosure clause. Cain can defend himself and refer to the women as anonymous all he wants, but they can’t say a word.

      • BJGirl

        Well, sometimes we should just sit back and wait a little bit to see what else comes out. Now there are witnesses (plural)to some of his actions and though the man did not reveal what was said he also was not the only person who witnessed it and said that if the details become known it would derail his campaign. And don’t forget the new 3rd woman who did not make a formal complaint. She is choosing to remain anonymous out of fear of retaliation, but if she changes her mind she is not bound by any kind of “clause”. He has changed his story on other issues before this ever happened.

        I suppose my question is, Why are so many, so quick, to wholeheartedly jump on the bandwagon of someone who is so totally unknown. Didn’t we learn from that last time?

        We have a man who loves this country, knows economics, knows the Constitution, has voted accordingly for over 30 years, and has wisdom in addition to serving on key committees. Why is the grass always greener on the other side? He has been elected in two different districts, in two different parties. Has a following that is diverse enough to draw support and votes from all parties if his own will get behind him. Furthermore, WE need him more than he needs us. We have a very short time to get this country headed in the right direction. This is the time and this is the man… Ron Paul.

        • libertytrain

          I’m with you Ron Paul all the way. I just have this problem of all these women coming out of the woodwork at such a convenient time. Go figure.

    • DaveH

      How did you feel, Karolyn, about Chief-Sexual-Harasser Bill Clinton’s escapades?

      • Karolyn

        Actually, Dave, he was not found to have harrassed anyone. Anything that was done was consensual. Ye he was a philanderer, but I liked him, and if his own wife could be forgiving, who am I to cast judgment. I’d like to know just what Cain did/said. If it was suggestive language, gestures or inuendo, that shows the caliber of man he is. Sexual assault is my area of expertise in my employment, so these types of things always interest me. Remember the guy who ran for SC senator? He was arrested for showing suggestive pictures to a girl at a football game. Sexual harrassment is in the eye of the victim. What might be offensive to one, might not be to another. Myself, I am very easygoing and do not too easily take offense.

        • libertytrain

          I believe there were those that didn’t want his attentions….he had power and clout…hard to fight that. Now John Edward’s bimbo, that’s another story of total sleaze from both of them.

        • Joe H.

          karolyn,
          i seem to remember reports of plenty of harrassment after the charges were brought. Oh, the harrassment was towards miss monica!!! For your info, all presidents have been philanderers to some point, even Kennedy with marilyn. One of the big differences between klintoon and Kennedy was in TASTE!! Compare monica to Miss Monroe, if there is any!!!

        • DaveH

          Karolyn,
          You are indeed incredible. That’s your area of expertise and you give a free pass to Bill Clinton?
          You don’t seem to understand that the whole idea behind “sexual harassment” is for somebody to use their position of power to seduce somebody (usually women). There is no more powerful person than the President of the United States. Bill Clinton fit the mold of Sexual Harasser better than any Corporate Executive ever could.
          Look what happened to Linda Tripp for daring to come forward. And, NO, I’m not saying she had relations with Clinton.
          It’s no wonder Liberals don’t have any credibility.

          • DaveH

            Consensual my fanny. It’s like saying a guy was not a thief because his victim handed his wallet over without a fight. Never mind the gun being pointed at him.

            Bingo Dave. Good comments. I think Linda Tripp is/was working at a US Gov. Resort in Austria – not sure, heard a rumor. In the “The Hills are Alive with the Sound of Music,” part of Austria.

      • eyeswideopen

        DaveH, do you think because someone else committed a horrible unethical act, that we should then deem it ok, for this idiot to become President?

        • DaveH

          I’m saying that you Liberals aren’t consistent. Karolyn proved that.

          • Jana

            DaveH,
            I totally agree with you on this. Also, the last time we “talked”, I didn’t agree with you on the topic, but I wanted to tell you that I do understand what you were saying and why you were saying it, and after much thought on the subject I do agree with you. :)

          • DaveH

            Thank you, Jana.

  • http://personallibertydigest cj

    apparently there is no side to tell, I don’t think looking into the matter and coming back and saying well this is what happened is really lying. This was probably some dirt the perry campaign dug up to try and derail Cain’s momentum.

    • Jana

      cj,
      Not the Perry campaign, but the liberal media. They want so badly to tell us who the candidate should be that they will lie and exagerate all of the candidates good, bad or ugly qualities just to put in Romney. The liberal media has already chosen him for us.

    • eyeswideopen

      Repubs eating their own, the dems don’t even have to do anything to the conservatives/repubs, let the feast begin!!

      • Jana

        You wish.

      • Joe H.

        eyes,
        Not that I’m real quick to believe a pol, but both Perry and his direct manager have said they have NOTHING TO DO WITH IT!!!

    • BJGirl

      Regardless of who leaked it, in today’s world there is no way it would not become a public issue. Now there is a 3rd woman who is afraid of retaliation, but is not under a non-disclosure clause because she never filed a complaint. There is now a man who is a witness to an incident with one of the women along with other who were present and also witnessed the event. The man did not give the details but said if they were to become known it would derail his campaign.

      Nevertheless, he changes his mind with the winds of public opinion. This is not the first issue.

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Deane

    From a lady that has worked with business men the past 45 years – I don’t believe the allegatins against H. Cain! Do you know how easy it is to claim sexual Harassment? Just brush against me, or say I look beautiful today and file your sexual harassment Claim and hope the money rolls in to settle out of court. Come on folks and remember, the Kennedys or Clinton, what Cain might have done, is nothing compared to those Presidents. IF Cain had a persoality that was sexual suggestive, where are allegations in the past 12 years?
    His only problem was gaining in the poles and so “someone” had to try anything to slow him down. All this is nothing but “Sour Grapes”.
    He is a smart man, do you really think he would have run for President if it had been a big deal? I believe he hasn’t lied, he is just adding more info as he is being told what had been a minor happening so long ago.
    I am srill going to vote for Cain!

    • libertytrain

      You are absolutely correct. Doesn’t have to be ‘you look beautiful,’ can be as simple as ‘you look nice today’….innocent comments that unfortunately some women have taken to the bank and particularly a few years back when these “rules” against harassment were first implemented. As a woman I have been embarrassed by some actions of my fellow women.

      • Angel Wannabe

        absolutely correct Liberty Train, people are sue happy today!_-They’ll turn a simple compliment into sexual assault in a heartbeat!

        • Dave

          And STS, this is what happens to “civility” today.

      • Jana

        I agree with Deanne. Great post and oh so true!

      • Joe H.

        libertytrain,
        As in all things our government controls, they didn’t ACT, they OVER REACTED!!!

      • independent thinker

        One supposed instance of “harrasment” was the comment “you are the same height as my wife”. That is about as innocent a comment as you can make.

        • BJGirl

          Wait a minute independent. You are getting that from what HE said, not from the woman herself.
          Remember that this 3rd woman who has chosen to remain anonymous,did not file a complaint. And who knows how many women DID NOT file anything?

          And now there is the man who witnessed one of the incidents along with others in the group they were in at a restaurant. He didn’t disclose the content, but I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if one of the other witnesses does. It was bad enough that the witness said it would derail the campaign if the details come out.

          Sometimes we want people to be the way we think they are. But they are who they are, and the truth will be known if you wait a bit and just see what that truth is. This is not just one incident that is coming out. This is a pattern, and these women are known to others and have gone on in their professional lives.

          One of the problems of advancing to the top in any field is the temptation to get heady. Clinton said he did it because he could. John Edwards talked of getting caught up in the circumstances of the power etc. (Not his words but you get the meaning). They start to feel invincible.

          Let’s see what comes out.

          • Dave

            And most peoples memory isn’t as trustworthy as you might think; it often runs the way of the person’s disposition.

          • Joe H.

            BJgirl,
            Have you ever heard of an ambulance chaser????

    • DaveH

      Forget the sexual harassment charges. The man is an establishment Republican who is trying to introduce a sweet-looking Trojan Horse (999) into our already overpowering Government. Just what we don’t need. The Europeans have both Income Taxes and Value-Added-Taxes (consumption tax). Ask them how that has worked for them.

      • JeffH

        DaveH, I was watching Judge Napolitano and he reprted that the co-author economist that helped formulate Cain’s 999 plan has backed off of the idea of the 9% natioal sales tax and said it should be dumped.

        One of the key economists who helped Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain draft his 9-9-9 tax plan is backing away from its most controversial component. Economist Stephen Moore said the criticism Cain endured during the GOP presidential debate Tuesday night shows his proposed 9 percent national sales tax might have to go, reports Fox News.

      Deane, I agree also and I also agree with DaveH.

      A wolf in sheep’s clothing is still a wolf.

    • Cara Mook

      Appreciate what you had to say to support Cain! I am in complete agreement with what liberals are doing with the ‘best’ republican candidate, because he is rising steadily ahead in the polls! Will be voting for Cain too!

      • eyeswideopen

        Cara, how can you call Rick Perry group liberals? They are the ones who released the info on your buddy, not the liberals. Read and understand prior to automatically blaming those that you have been taught to hate.

        • Joe H.

          Well, Let’s see, Forced innocculations, lax on immigration control, loves to spend tax money? YUP! Sounds pretty liberal to me!!!

          • DaveH

            Eyes doesn’t understand that there are Liberals in both Parties.

          • Joe H.

            DaveH,
            My Dad always said that if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, and $hits through feathers, there’s a pretty good chance it’s a DUCK!!!

  • CP

    If it were so minor, why is it that the women HAD to sign non-disclosure agreements? Also, is a year’s wages a “small, insignificant” sum of money to make a problem “go away”? Mr. Cain has already demonstrated rather poor choices while trying to make his points, and that would fit nicely with what he has been accused of.

    • libertytrain

      Non-disclosure agreements were always common when I was working, particularly if someone is paid to leave employment for whatever reason. Sometimes it’s just to keep them quiet about their actual jobs or there was agreement that they would be let go because of their own actions … I’m perhaps not wording this properly but I did see and witness several of these things take place over my work-life.

      • BJGirl

        Insurance that pays the claim is usually the reason for the non-disclosure. They like it when their part of anything stays behind closed doors, unless it puts them in a good light. That doesn’t mean that the legal department of a company could not initiate one, but in this case, I would bet it was insurance.

    • DaveH

      She DIDN’T have to sign the non-disclosure agreement. That’s why they’re called “agreements”.

      • Jana

        Dave H,
        You are right. She didn’t have to sign a non disclosure and she didn’t have to take the money. So it tells you it probably was ALL about the money.
        This reminds me of Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas. A big bunch of nothing.

        • libertytrain

          That’s right, it seems it’s always about the money… that was her choice.

      • eyeswideopen

        yup, and they can be released if the other side agrees to it! Let him release the woman from her agreement for us to be able to see the complaint. The birthers should all be on board for transparency and be demanding that he release her from the agreement. Easy fix to this situation, if he doesn’t have anything to hide!!! lol

        • DaveH

          An agreement is usually reached because both sides get something they want.

    • JPaulG

      CP,
      You are an idiot! All of the things you mentioned are standard legal practices!
      Please stop showing everyone how stupid you are.

            karolyn,
            the same NBC that avoids like the plague mentioning how R. Paul is doing in the straw polls? The same one that reported a few years back that clintoon was innocent of all charges?? The same NBC that had an imbedded reporter trying to set up a witch hunt in Iraq with two soldiers?? and wasn’t it NBC that employed a certain reporter that reported that Bush went AWOL but didn’t check out his sources in his zeal to ruin a republicans run for office?? Yup, I’m sure gonna trust THEIR word on THESE charges!!NOT!

          • Joe H.

            sorry, meant ABC! All the alphabets are interchangable anyways!!!

          • Jana

            Yes, they sure are!

          • DaveH
          • libertytrain

            The severance pay of $35,000 was not a secret. It’s been talked about for several days. Keep in mind it was also said that was a year’s salary of compensation and I believe she left her job. I’ve seen it done a few times and none of the times did it involve sexual harassment charges but rather to shut people up about what their jobs might have entailed. I’m a Ron Paul fan, however many things can and do get twisted from the real truth by the news media of the last 20 years or so. Kind of but not quite the actual truths and remote truth possibilities becomes solid absolutes. And it so convenient that these kind of accusations come out when it’s a conservative like Cain or Clarence Thomas. It’s interesting how the media wants/wanted to make these two black men fail at any cost…despite all the sexual truths we know are real, like John Edwards cheating on his lovely cancer ridden wife – and Clinton who women still gush over like he did nothing morally wrong, two white boys. Not to mention the other white boy running, Gingrich, that had no probs cheating on his wife while she was dying of cancer — oh those things are ok? Blatant disrespect of duty. But a sexual harassment “accusation” is not ok? I’m confused by what’s acceptable sexual behavior and what’s not —

  • Angel Wannabe

    It was just a matter of time before they started on Cain. He’s the forerunner right now, the horse in front usually wins the race and unfortunately gets the most shyte too!

    • DaveH

      Cain is/was the front-runner because the establishment Republicans are trying desperately to put anybody up there besides Ron Paul. Hopefully, all that money they’re spending to accomplish that will go to waste.

    • BJGirl

      A W,
      He would be naive to think that anything like this would not be brought up. But watch. More is coming out all the time. And it seems apparent that the two women are not the ones who brought this up. However, let’s see what takes place where the 3rd one is concerned. She filed no complaint, but is afraid to say anything now. She may have been afraid then too, hence no complaint. But alas! She is not our last hope of getting to the truth. A male witness, in a group of witnesses, saw and heard enough that he claims would derail the campaign if the details were to become public. So at least it is not all dependent on the women who filed. Wait and see.

  • Luther Henry

    This is another “tempest in a teapot”, raised to diminish and destroy a perceived threat to the democrat power structure. Slick Willy Clinton was idolized for his sexual prowess and given a wink and a nod by the media. He was a serial sexual predator and we were told, “all men do it” and he “needed to get back to the business of the country”. Of course it is all a matter of perception, mine is that Herman Cain is 1000 percent better than the impostor we currently have in the White House.

    • Angel Wannabe

      Luther, Don’t know if this is absolutely truth or not, but I’ve heard tell, that the men in politics are regularly tempted with sexual favor, so the TPTB can keep them in line.

    • BJGirl

      And Ron Paul is 1000 percent better than anyone else running.

  • wendy

    the democrats are destroying this country. they just can’t stop spending or lying.

  • 1776

    She just wants her 15 minuets of FAME, she was probable about to get fired for poor job performance, so not all women but a few Holler sexual Harassment.
    And shame on POLITICO for being such scum Bags, The Mexican owned leftist piece of sh-t news

    • BJGirl

      1776,
      “She” isn’t the one who started this as far as anyone knows at this point. It was leaked by others, so no claim for fame is involved. And just the fact that all of a sudden, pay-off notwithstanding, her job performance is brought up. THAT is precisely why sexual harassment laws came about. I wasn’t there, but it comes back to the fact that women still have to earn a living and there should be no repercussions from saying NO. These arguments are as old as time. Sometimes the truth can be on either side, but listen to yourselves. This issue is just getting started and there is more to know and more coming out all the time. If it is true, don’t blame the messengers (even if their motives were not good). If true, he owns it, regardless of who squealed. Other candidates have to answer for anything and everything. He is no different.

      • Jana

        BJGirl,
        As you said, You weren’t there.

      • Joe H.

        BJGirl,
        Well, let’s look at that fact. On the three separate charges brought against Clintoon, the big three news outlets aired a total of 10 reports on him in the first three days. On the three combined charges on Cain, the big three news outlets have aired 50 stories on it Already!!!! I guess some have to answer MORE than the others!!!!

  • Raggs

    I would guess that we will see about ten thousand liberal females coming out from under rocks in order to jump on the Cain sex scandal bandwagon… I figure that they will get a hefty sum from the oblama party to lie about this.

    I do know that sexual harassment has become the new automatic, slam-dunk fee source for bottom-feeding attorneys. No business person’s insurance company will go to court even if the claims are obviously false, as long as the amount sued for is $35,000 or less, sometimes even $50,000 or less, reason being the high cost of defense and the fact that you never know what verdict a jury is going to reach.

    And Cain is forbidden to publicly discuss the case by virtue of the settlement. The Democrats and possibly at least one of Cain’s Republican competitors know this and are taking advantage of it. The gag rule, by the way, is designed to protect the accuser, not the accused, as the accuser never wants prospective employers to know about this risk.

      James,
      What you say about insurance companies is true. Look at medical malpractice cases. Many are settled out of court for 250 to 350,000 dollars!! doesn’t matter if the doc is guilty of ANYTHING. The claimant sues for 5 to 10 million and the company settles out of court for a whole lot less, especially if the claiment has a lawyer with a good record of winning!!

        Joe,
        Juries are not always right, but neither are they always wrong. And one thing that patients are up against (for your argument) is the fact that doctors are so reluctant to testify against each other. I had a friend who lost a lung because of something left inside that got infected. This took place several decades ago. She was hospitalized for a very long time with church members keeping vigil at her bedside, and doctors cussing the one who was responsible the whole time. But they didn’t want to testify. As a former process server I can certainly vouch for that attitude in that industry. Malpractice suits would not be what they are if there was more policing within their own ranks. But in the defense of some, they are usually more than willing to testify when a child is needing them (though it may not be for malpractice).
        You must remember that serious issues arise and for the most part the only remedy is money. How often do you read of the wrong limb being removed etc. Stuff happens. Much can be prevented.
        Next time you suffer even a small loss (not involving any legal claim) think about how it feels and then look again at the serious issues some folks are going to court for. And sometimes it wouldn’t be necessary to even go to court if insurance companies would do what is right. Looking up such in a library’s periodicals years ago, it was clear that insurance companies were just as guilty of fraud as phony claimants. Don’t let the headlines sway you. It works to their advantage.

          BJGirl,
          In 1980, I had a partial laminectomy done. I went in for a 10 to 12 day stay. I ended up spending 50 days in the hospital because of a staff infection in the incision. There were 5 of us on that floor that got staff infections and the only thing we had in common was the operating room. The neurosurgeon I had tried to tell me it was from an infected hair folicle. When they took my stitches out, the incision just opened right back up. I was told that I had about a 1/4 inch of good flesh between the infection and my spine. I could have been paralized for life from the neck down or worse. I was advised to sue and probably could have won, but I didn’t. Know why? When my hospital stay that started with me being brought in on a streatcher ended I WALKED out of the place!! I was happy to be able to do that and that was exactly what the Dr. said I would do!!

    First, let me say I am caucasian race. I did not support Obama in his election not because he’s black but because he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. His slick tongue and demeanor did not fool me. I believe Obama, Perry, or some other republican contender is behind this smear. I liked Perry until his stand on illegal aliens came to light. I do not trust him. I believe Herman Cain is the most honest and least likely to knuckle under to Washington politics as usual. I feel he has an excellent chance of getting Obama & his deceitful buddies out of Washington. And by the way, why hasn’t Obama been impeached. Everyone knows there is a cover up regarding the legality of his citizenship. He just does what he wants and doesn’t have to answer to anyone. All you Obama supporters need to ask yourselves why does he feel he is God?

    • Angel Wannabe

      Jo Tracy, O’reilly on Fox News last night said, there was a Republican behind it, but declined to say anymore about it.

      • asianlady

        Does O’Reilly have the evidence that a Republican is responsible for the Cain sexual harassment being brought out in the open? He is the one who always say ” we do not say anything here in FOX unless you have proof.”

        • Angel Wannabe

          asianlady, I don’t know what Facts he has, I walked in on the tail end of the conversation and that was all I heard O’reilly say.

    • DaveH
  • Jerry M

    Herman Cain is not perfect and will make some decisions I don’t agree with but Obama has done nothing I agree with since he took office. I can’t think of a single thing. Don’t be too hard on Herman. He is still 10 feet taller than anyone else in the race and is the smartest person I’ve ever studied. Anyone in the high positions Herman has risen to are targets of those who are out for PROFIT and POLITICAL gain.

  • DaveH

    Definition of a sexual harasser — Somebody unattractive to yourself, otherwise the harassment is just fine.

    • Raggs

      I think that it depends on what side of the political isle one is on in this case.

    • DaveH

      Anybody who’s ever been to divorce court knows what Real Harassment is like. Walk down the family court hallways some time and see how many happy faces there aren’t.
      We’ve become a nation of woosies who run to Government for every little problem.

  • Joanne G. Beckmann

    It is distressing when such an honorable man such as Herman Cain has to be harrassed by an incompentent while our country is going down the drain.

    • asianlady

      How do you know that Cain is an “honorable man”? Do you know him
      personally? His body language tells me he is not being truthful. He says “he does not remember the circumstances of the sexual harassment
      allegations”. I will remember all the events all my life if I am accused of such action.That is BS to pretend memory loss. I am a Repulican but I do not condone his action. Time to side with women who are abused by men of power!

      • Joe H.

        asianlady,
        YES, by all means!!! We HAVE GOT to start convicting these sexual harrassers based on their body language!!! sarcasm ends here!!

        • Jana

          Good catch JoeH.
          Obviously Homeland Security could use Asianlady if she is that good.

        • DaveH

          With Cain, we don’t need body language:

          • Joe H.

            DaveH,
            I know that, but I still believe in innocent untill PROVEN guilty!! So does Ron Paul, by the way!!

  • Hugh

    If Cain was a Democrat the women would already have been hung out to dry and attacked by every MSM media outfit like with Clinton, Edwards, etc. Like with Clinton and Edwards, the charges would have been downplayed in the press. That’s SOP on the left.

  • SMSgt Z retired Nam 68

    In this information age everyone should understand that if you do not face allegations about your conduct with truthfulness;the truth will come out and you will look worse for you lack of candor.It’s that simple

    • Jana

      SMSgt,
      The only problem is lawyers get involved and make matters worse.

      • SMSgt Z retired Nam 68

        The truth will set you free

        • Joe H.

          SMsgtZ,
          The problem is, this is the political truth based on allegations and not on fact. Where are your FACTS about the accusations??

    • Raggs

      I somewhat agree, but then look how oblama is still fooling 50% of Americans.

      • Jana

        Raggs,
        This is true, therefore, this shows that you have to be smart enough to know what the truth is when you see it.The problem is we have too many out there that can’t see the truth or recognize the truth. Maybe I ought to say they don’t want to acknowledge the truth.

    • Karolyn

      Absolutely. I don’t know how any of them think they can get away with anything in this day and age.

      • DaveH

        Some things never change, no matter how technologically we advance.

        • Joe H.

          DaveH,
          It’s like they say, ” the more things change, the more they stay the same”!!!

  • JOAN

    If she were paid off as it’s said how do we know if her allegations are true she accepted money to keep quiet!! What her story now was offered more money to come forward????? I like Cain will get my vote NO!! matter what the outcome is!! Cain is not any worse then other Pres. that were accused of same!! So let it all come out!!!!

    • Jeep

      At least one of his two accusers was given a severance package equal to about $35,000 and signed a confidentiality agreement. Notice I said severance package, not a settlement. Draw your own conclusions, but I think this smacks of an unfounded charge. As for the other case, there is very little to go on.

    • Raggs

      The thing is… Any woman can charge any man of the same type of BS and in most cases the man guilty or not would rather do what is needed to stop an accusation in it’s tracks instead of going to court to prove his innocence… We have become a society of freeloading worthless thugs that are willing to lie for a personal gain.

      • libertytrain

        yep.

      • Dave

        Kinda like George W. and Donald Cheney? The Haliburton front men!

      • eyeswideopen

        rAGGS, WHEN YOU ARE IN A POSITION THAT cAIN, WAS, YOU HAVE A CREW OF LAWYERS WHO COULD DEFEND YOU, IF, REPEAT IF, YOU ARE INNOCENT OF THE CHARGES. Both women were given settlements due to the fact that they had to leave their jobs after speaking up about the harrassment. Did you expect them to stay in those positions and endure more?

        • Jana

          Eyes knows all and sees all. She looks in her crystal ball and it tells her all of the facts. Yes, we can depend on everything she says.
          HA!

        • Joe H.

          eyes,
          Look into that crystal ball and pull out some proof to your claims!!!

    • Karolyn

      There are now 3 women.

      • Joe H.

        karolyn,
        As stated above, I too, wonder how many more will crawl out of the woodwork before it’s over. They’re loke roaches!!

  • Palin16

    Herman Cain just happened to receive the highest single-day campaign contributions on the day of the alleged harrasment charges. $250K in one day! Keep it up, libtards!

    • Dave

      “A fool and their money are soon parted”

  • Dave

    Herman Cain is the smart one alright.
    He now says China should be stopped before they get nuclear weapons. We all know they are working towards that goal.

    • JeffH

      Yeah, ole Herman’s alittle behind the times alright!

      In 2005 and 2006, the Department of Defense’s annual report on China’s military forces included a detailed table of China’s ballistic missiles. The table suggested that China had 250-296 launchers with 793-916 missiles of seven types. Of these, approximately 105 are thought to be armed with nuclear warheads.

      Who to believe?

      • Jana

        JeffH,
        At least Cain is a faster learner than Obama.

        • Dave

          He had ten days to figure out a response before anything hit the fan. Flipped his story four times in almost the same number of hours. He’s covering alot of ground quickly….his tracks.

      • Dave

        China started their nuclear tests about 50 years ago.

        • Joe H.

          Dave,
          Had a Dr.s appointment today and having nothing else to do while waiting, I picked up the liberal rag Newsweek. Even they say China is in a bubble and being based on cheap realestate and easy money it too, will soon burst if they aren’t careful, very careful!!

  • SMSgt Z retired Nam 68

    China tested it’s first nuke on October 16,1964

    • Dave

      So 57 years ago…point being Cain needs some history lessons. He might want to bone up on foreign issues and less on domestic…….you know.

      • Joe H.

        How ironic!! They tested their first 57 years ago and obummer thinks there are 57 states!!! Just incredible!!!

  • s c

    For those in the perpetually thin-skinned crowd, the two women in question waited for HOW MANY YEARS before they came forward? WHO in their right minds WAITS THAT LONG to bring something to someone’s attention? A pathetic shill who just happens to be brainwashed by progressivism – THAT’S who!
    The heart of the issue is whether or not anyone would waste their time to lower themselves to talk to a space cadet progressive about a matter that they will NEVER understand.
    People, there ARE conservative blacks in America. GET OVER IT, you disgusting, self-made retards! You slugs OWN that damned racist/race card. GAG ON IT!

    • Raggs

      sc, just shows how silly you are, they didn’t come forward, reporters researched and found them after the Rick Perry guys, tipped them off!!You need to read more and think prior to making assumptions.

      • Joe H.

        eyes,
        you find any proof in that crystal ball yet????

        • s c

          Joe H, I’m tempted to elaborate, but since a typical utopian progressive has dared to cram his feet into his big mouth [again], it needs to be said that those who go through life with crystal balls already have more than their fair share of problems.
          Utopian progressives have chosen to prove to the world that they just can’t get enough stupidity into their lives. They love being stupid, and they don’t see what’s so wrong about being proud of that fact. Let those losers be proud of their crystal balls. I have a great hammer, and I’m willing to use it to show them how painful crystal balls can be.

          Angel,
          Great information

  • Raggs

    If anyone is interested… I posted this morning that at least ten thousand women would come out from under the rocks to blame…
    Well now I can say I told ya so…

  • Yvonne Robinson

    I just took the poll and the results do not match any of the national polls for many many weeks. Michele Bachmann is done, Ron Paul is not among the top three on national or state polls…..
    I would say that the large percentage of who voted were Tea Partiers…..
    and none of those that they are backing are rating in the polls.
    And to have names on the list that are not running and that have dropped out of the race tells me that this poll is skewed…… I’ve taken many polls, this one doesn’t seem to be reliable. It may make the 36% feel good but we have to face reality…… this election is just too important…..
    I have to dismiss this poll.

  • Cynthia Daugherty

    Everyone needs to ask themselves on hard question. If the individual had never releast the information to Politico, would it have been revealed during the 2012 campaign election cycle? Probably no.

    These women, whether their accusations were proven or not, were offered a means to resolve their complaint by the company. Did they freely enter into the agreement? Yes, otherwise the charges/lawsuit would have been filed.

    Mr. Cain had been out in public view since at least 2009, was on TV supporting Gov. Walker, continued speaking in public venues before entering the race. Not a word was “leaked” to the press until Mr. Cain’s polling numbers continued to climb. He passed the stage of “flavor of the month” and his support was growing. Is there a motive? Yes.

    If this “lead” came from another camp — the Republican Party should condemn the candidate immediately. There should be a public outcry for them to drop from the race. The reason our political system is unable to functions PROPERLY is because of these types of under handed means to achieve a “self-serving” objective. A candidate that resorts to these types of “winning tactice” has no business in the White House because it demonstrates they are not a leader.

    • Jana

  • CLYDE

    A couple of liberal hacks that tried to kill Sara Palin politically make an alligation with no proof and the dutiful left wing press keeps the story alive for months.
    It is impossible to disaprove a negitive. We just can not have someone that understands Economics 101 holding any political office. Doesn’t anyone think anymore?

  • http://www.gillysrooms.blogspot.com Gilly

    I’m surprised no women have yet come forward seeking child support and claiming he fathered 20 children by 20 different women. That would put the seed of doubt into to the equation and knock him out of race altogether by the time all the hoo haa and media hype settled down. Such is the corruption in politics and women who are just so keen to lie to get to Hollywood or sell a media story…..Having said that, I still think President Obama should be given a second term and he will I’m predicting. His competitors are a mixed rabble of unproven credentials. Better the devil you know and not they one and his team of thousands you don’t know much about. May the best person and their team win the Presidency. Gillysrooms from Australia.
