Skip to comments.Gov Rick Perry Supporter and pollster for a SuperPAC that supports Perry is the Herman Cain source
Posted on 11/02/2011 6:14:32 PM PDT by justsaynomore
I don't know if there is more than one source or not, but, according to Politico, Chris Wilson, a Governor Perry supporter and pollster for the super PAC that supports Governor Perry, worked at the National Restaurant Association and is the (a?) source for the Cain/sexual harassment story.
He said the episode of harassment occurred in a public restaurant in the 1990's and that many people knew about it. What is WEIRD about the Politico story and Chris Wilson, is that Chris Wilson would not or did not say what happened. The only reason that omission catches my attention is that sexual harassment is a rather fluid concept. Some actions are OBVIOUSLY sexual harassment and some are NOT and are merely actions misinterpreted or exaggerated.
Hence I would like to know what it is that people (Chris Wilson) say Mr. Cain did. Of course because Wilson is also a Governor Perry guy, his remarks (accusation) should be looked at with a discerning eye and it is all the more important that he provide more information about what he claims Mr. Cain did.

If this is true, I’m scratching Perry off of my list.
I would like to know how they CONFIRMED it.
Wilson hid nothing and does not work for Perry.
If Politico says so it must be true. [sarcasm]
Stepping all over Rons rules for treating each other. Nice going.
Oh by the way, good luck the rest of the way, cause your sure to need it.
If so, Perry is toast.
I haven’t been this shocked since Ricky Martin came out of the closet.
Greta contacted Politico and they revealed their source
“Wilson hid nothing and does not work for Perry.”
Looks like Perry’s handling of this is what will hurt him...wouldn’t you agree? ;-)
What would Politico’s motivation be to expose their source? Maybe they think they can get a two for one and eliminate both Cain and Perry with one story?
We still do not know if Perry had anything to do with this. It could be Wilson acted on his own.
Confirmed how? And why is this just posting here when its timestamp is 4pm est?
That takes care of it.
Now it’s Newt or Cain.
I’m scratching Cain off of my list for diversionary tactics and finger-pointing when he should be dealing with these ridiculous (I hope) accusations in a more grown-up manner.
Wilson denies being the politico source.
He merely came out after the fact and confirmed that he witnessed sexual harassment on Cains part.
Then Cain accused Curt Anderson as the source.
There are a lot of people who seem overly invested in Cain.
If Wilson is the source why did Cain accuse Anderson? and how does that reflect on Cains judgement?
Confirmed: Air comes out of a leaky tire.
It that what we are talking about “hot air”.
Confirmed it is “the source” but the question is “of what”?
What we have here is an attempt by the “professional Establishment POLs” to reassert themselves as our masters.
Am I a Cain supporter? No, but I would vote for him if he were nominated.
Would I vote for Rick Perry if he got the nomination? Yes, but I would prefer he remain Governor of Texas.
Would I do the same for Mitt Romney, NO. Not under any circumstances.
Sorry Charlie, that is how it is.
Perry’s been dead meat ever since his, “you have no heart” comment... any resurrecting will only be at the behest of the MSM...
” It could be Wilson acted on his own.”
Do you mean like when newly hired by Michelle Bachmann, Ed Rollins tried a smear job on Sarah Palin?
Seriously? Adios, Ricardo!
“What would Politicos motivation be to expose their source? Maybe they think they can get a two for one and eliminate both Cain and Perry with one story?”
It was BACKFIRING and Cain was picking up more and more strength. They need to end this story and at least wait until the general election before they try this stunt again.
During primary season the only ‘voters’ are Republicans, most identifying themselves as Tea Party. They do not take kindly to character assassination. In the general election, this kind of garbage can and has worked.
I’m disappointed in Cain and disgusted with Perry.
...on to Newt! At least we know what the skeletons are in his closet.
Perry is on Hannity right now saying kind things about Cain.
My thinking too.
If everybody knew about it as reported how come the attorney told the WashingtonPo he never remembered the case nor had a file on the case ..which was left out of the Washington Po’s story. The Rush put out a piece on another Association CEO that has donated to Romney...which was found on Northern Virginia Lawyer
Until some fat guy actually sings...I think YOU, or You or You reading this.. did it! ;)
Wilson served as Executive Director of the Republican Party of Texas when President George W. Bush was governor, working directly for Karl Rove
Exactly. The willingness to join in unsupported accusations is astonishing. Wilson no doubt knew of the accusations but then so did dozens of people related to the National Restaurant Association, including those who worked with it but not on its staff. That these accusations would come out was being discussed by people in Washington weeks before the Politico story. Has Wilson said he told the story to anyone at Politico?
“Im scratching Cain off of my list for diversionary tactics and finger-pointing when he should be dealing with these ridiculous (I hope) accusations in a more grown-up manner.”
LOL...as if he was EVER on your list.
I expect a lively Greta tonight.
Not at all.
Herman is the one in “let’s get crazy!” mode.
confirmed he told the woman she was the same height as his wife?
Well, isn't that precious? Bless his heart! lol
Probably because he spoke about it earlier today:
The only list he’s on here is the excrement list.
“Perry is on Hannity right now saying kind things about Cain.”
Too late, the jig is up. His stunts may work in Texas, but not at the national level.
LOL. Ricky Martin, a Latino that couldn’t get Perry’s tuition subsidy, because he is actually a U.S. Citizen.
It’s Grettas wet dream prior to her reading the Forbes story which also hit the wire at 4pm EST
See post 34
She is now the best show on Fox.
He was always on my list and if you’d bother to look at people’s
posts instead of jumping to conclusions, you’d know that.
You may now return to your worshiping and your silly display of snarkiness.
I couldn’t care less who leaked it. I want to know what Cain did.
“Not at all.
Herman is the one in ‘lets get crazy!’ mode.”
Perry’s handled his answering of these accusations poorly. His blaming Romney will not help him...simply diversionary. Perry’s handling of this will definitely hurt him.
Not fun watching your guy taking heat for something he may or may not have done...ayy? ;-)
That would be 3 Perrywinkles who have now posted the meme, ‘it’s not the allegations, it’s the way he’s responding’.
You should give this interview a listen.
