Cain Accused of Being Accused
According to a report in Politico, the organization settled two complaints with two separate women that Cain spoke crudely to them in a sexual way.
So here we go.
It is an interesting sort of allegation that asks if you have ever been "accused" of something, but it is damning in it own right. If Herman Cain could say, "Yes, almost 15 years I was accused, falsely," he should say so. Running for president, he certainly should have been prepared for the question and ready to answer it. And he obviously wasn't.
If the NRA and/or its insurance carrier paid these women to go away, the Cain campaign is probably finished. But the whole thing smacks of another low-tech lynching of a successful black man who dared to veer from liberal orthodoxy.
It should remind everyone that if you're a white, liberal president, you can be a serial adulterer, harass women for sex and be caught having sex with a White House intern, lie about it all under oath, and STILL retain the support of the Democratic party.
Republican voters have higher and more demanding standards of behavior of their presidents and presidential candidates.
UPDATE: Cain denies:
"I have never sexually harassed anyone, let's say that. Secondly, I've never sexually harassed anyone, and yes, I was falsely accused while I was at the National Restaurant Association, and I say falsely, because it turned out, after the investigation, to be baseless. The people mentioned in that article were the ones who would be aware of any misdoings, and they have attested to my integrity and my character. It is totally baseless, and totally false, never have I committed any sort of sexual harassment."
