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.

whatta bunch of pukes—the liberal + rino progressives.
One word: Anita Hill
Here comes the Clarence Thomas sound-a-likes.
Let me see, journalists sitting around....”Hey! Let’s do the Clarance Thomas thing!”
Yep, looks like the Clarence Thomas strategy again-wonder if it will include the Coke can?
And the Obama slime machine begins.
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.
Here come the commie ‘RATS with their rope. Another uppity ****** who dared to leave their plantation.
Obviously racism on the part of the AP and Politico
It’s the typical liberal media m.o.
Pure leftist horse squeeze promulgated by purely leftist horses' asses.
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”.
The MSM will do anything to ensure their straw man Romney gets the nod.
My first thought was of Clarence Thomas.
I want to get a restraining order against Obama. He comes to Michigan so much I think he’s stalking me.
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.
What’s the problem? Herman knows a great pizza a** when he sees one. I like that in a man.
I was just forwarded a tweet by a woman that worked with Herman Cain while he was at NRA. She says she doesn’t believe these accusations for a second!
This has ALL of the STENCH of Karl Rove and Mitt Rommney!
I’m not a Cain supporter either but this is crap!
UNLESS it’s with a white guy in the back of a limo with a little coke. That’s different.
It’s racism to accuse Cain of such a thing.
It’s enormously racist to report (AP) it.
Lieberal scummers shooting their load of BS a little too early in the game? Good.....we get this crapola out of the way
while they shoot their blanks.
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!
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.
The liberals who generated this stuff better grab some tissues before we all see the stain.
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.”
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!
Not 1 word of it that happens nightly at OWS. One woman even stated we don’t talk about it , we police ourselves.
Nice Rovian silhouette ...
O-bum-mer is jealous.
Larry Sinclair swore in an affidavit that he smoked cocaine with, and performed oral sex on, Barack Obama in a Limousine in Chicage when B.O. was in the IL State House. Media ignored it. Hmmmmm................
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?
There are rumors about that BO is known as a bottom boy at that “men’s club” he frequented in Chicago with Rham, the now current mayor.
Depends on where the copies of the settlements were obtained, I suppose.
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.
If he does that, he best be sure there’s no blue dress or he is TOAST.
I hope some big guns come out and slam these people as racists! Point out that they’re stereotyping a black man.....maybe some blacks will get pissed.
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.
