Cain denies report of sexual harassment
Associated Press ^ | Oct. 30, 2011 | KASIE HUNT

Posted on 10/30/2011 6:20:10 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

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.

No, don ‘t tell me, let me guess ....

A Coke can and a pubic hair are involved, right?

Sounds like they're dusting off the lynching script they keep on the shelf for black men from the South who flee the plantation.

The democrat fascist party has hated black folks from the day it was founded. Their eugenics based genocidal attack on black people continues to this day and will never stop until either the black race is eliminated from this country or the democrat party is eliminated from this country and outlawed the same way the German Nazi party that copied the democrat fascists eugenics pogroms is outlawed in Germany.

You can find flakes anywhere who are willing to come forward with “claims.” But are these claims where there is actually a paper trail (that is, did they file complaints at the time)? Or is it another Anita Hill set up, something on the entirely fanciful “recovered memory” line? In a case like this, “recovered memory” is just another way of saying politically paid-off.

I think this is completely phony, and I’m not even a Cain supporter.

The allegations were first reported by the website Politico.

Best case scenario: If not true, and I don’t believe it is, conservative websites/talk radio, maybe Fox, will find out and it will mean more votes for Cain.

Worst case: It’s true and he just lied to the press about it.

My guess as a conservative and a Cain fan: The lefties, libs, dems, the msm and/or a rino in the pack, are trying to “nip Cain in the bud”.

Of course. The oversexed black male racist stereotype is alive-and-well when the Left can use it against a black conservative.

I guess that could be considered one of the advantages of living in the Peoples’ Republik of Kalifornia. Obama thinks he has this state sewed up so he only comes here to use the ATM machine known as Hollyweird.

It’s racism to accuse Cain of such a thing.

It’s enormously racist to report (AP) it.

I agree, but I think it’s probably the Dems who are behind it (Politico is a well-known Dem house organ). They tried the “Cain is not a real black man” thing last week and it didn’t fly. They tried the same thing with Clarence Thomas, btw.

So now they’re just moving on to stage two, the sexual harrassment charges. They’re hoping to turn women against him.

I don’t support him for other reasons, but I think this is ridiculous, and if they think it will make him lose support, they’re certainly wrong!

I'm gonna go out a limb here and post this with great peril to my reputation, but;
About 10 days ago I was struck by comments made by longtime Dem strategist Pat Caddell who hypothesized that, ideology aside, Cain had a “Bill Clinton like” persona in that his popularity would grow each time the media or his opponents criticized him. So far Cadell’s analysis seems more accurate than those of GOP strategists such as Rove.

BO has NO women in his past? Where are they? Very strange if you ask me. BO’s childhood was spent in a Muslim country and then he did drugs in high school. Where is the media on this? Big story today in DAllas Morning News about Perry’s past. We NEVER saw anthing about BO and his boyhood and that he lived in Indonesia and attended a Muslim school. Time for the Repulican candidates to remind everyone of this. His anti-American preacher too. Let’s get it out there for round 2.

On 5-15-11: Herman Cain said:

“They’re going to come after me more viciously than they would a white candidate,” Cain responded. “You’re right. Clarence Thomas. And so, to use Clarence Thomas as an example, I’m ready for the same high-tech lynching that he went through — for the good of this country.” Cain smiled broadly. “I’m ready for the same high-tech lynching.”

I’m a Perry man. Not a bot.

This is Clearance Thomas 2.0. Unacceptable. The shadow photo of Karl Rove is hilarious, though!

We cannot allow black conservative men to be treated like this.

However, Cain’s team needs to issue a stronger denial that what’s being reported by Byron York:

“Calling the story “thinly source allegations,” Cain spokesman J.D. Gordon said: “Since Washington establishment critics haven’t had much luck in attacking Mr. Cain’s ideas to fix a bad economy and create jobs, they are trying to attack him in any way they can.” Gordon did not address any of the specific allegations in the report. Asked for a more specific answer, the campaign did not provide details.”

First they say repeatedly, then they say at least twice?

Anyone can make accusations as many times as they want, doesn't make it true! Show some proof or make the apology, Politico and AP!

At this point, Anita Hill is looking good compared to Cain’s accusers. She at least came forward publicly.

These accusers(per Politico) agreed to a five-figure settlement in exchange for their agreement not to discuss their allegations. Politico will not publish their names for privacy reasons. What? They took a significant amount of money from the NRA for a promise not to discuss the allegations, and expect privacy as they work to destroy a man’s reputation from behind a wall of privacy?

Politico claims to have a copy of the agreements the two women signed whereby they each received a 5-figure settlement and agreed not to discuss the matter. Took the money, then decided to talk? So what is their word worth?

I actually got a bottle of bleach out and went to Politico and read all four pages (for some reason liberals think increasing the word count it makes the article more believable). It doesn't look like the women spoke to anyone. From the way it's worded Politico got their names and then approached the women asking them for confirmation. My bet would be one of the lawyers anonymously slipped Politico a copy. It fits with the details.

Cain just needs to get out there and wag his finger at the Press and say ...”I did NOT ...I did NOT sexually harass those two women. . . “

That’s it. Do it, Herman, and be done.

And I hope Cain publicly asks Sharpton and Jackson and obama for support in fighting this racism. hee hee

If they signed an agreement not to discuss it, they should not have confirmed or denied. Period. The NRA kept its end of the bargain (paid them big bucks) and it is their obligation to keep their end of the deal.

I think it was definitely an ‘insider’ with the NRA. I’d heard through a source who’s familiar with that organization that ‘some stuff is going to come out’ about Cain, and now, by golly, some ‘stuff’ has come out. So, at least the rumor has been out the for some time. Better it come out early.

My blood is boiling over this. It’s all too easy to make accusations and destroy a reputation. Locally, 3 middle school girls conspired to make up a story about a PE teacher at their school who’d given them some grief. A year or two later, after his name was dragged thru the press, and he’d lost his job, they fessed up. These 2 ex-NRA employees better have damned good proof of their accusations.
