Skip to comments.With No Specifics to the Accusations, Herman Cain Wins This Fight
Posted on 11/04/2011 7:40:06 PM PDT by Maelstorm
Joel Bennett, the lawyer for one of the former employees of the National Restaurant Association who accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment, spoke to Wolf Blitzer live on CNN moments ago.
Bennett said that in his legal opinion, what occurred between Cain and his client met the legal definition of sexual harassment. But despite repeated questions from Blitzer, he refused to specify what the alleged actions were, and he said his client would not be appearing to shed any further light on the matter.
When Blitzer pointed out Cains vehement, blanket denial, Bennett replied, In all my years of lawyering, Ive never seen anyone accused of sexual harassment say, I did it.
In short, Mr. Bennett is arguing, I wont say what he did, but trust me, hes guilty of wrongdoing. This is ridiculous. To Politico, the public is supposed to take this into account in their assessment of Cain but we cant even get any sense of what triggered the original complaint, and whether this was much ado about nothing or whether Cain actually did something wrong.

And the Democrap Libtards are RACIST for going after Herman Cain the way they have been.
Saying “He’s a black man who knows his place”
I wonder just how much drinking is going on tonight at the Rove and Romney homes.
I haven’t see “The Justice Brothers” out defending this black many who has been unjustly targeted by the media!
He DOES know his place- its in the WHITE HOUSE.
If Cain actually looks like he will win the nomination, you can be sure these woman will come out of the woodwork.
Bennett said that in his legal opinion, what occurred between Cain and his client met the legal definition of sexual harassment.
How ambiguous is it possible to be? So basically, to anyone with a liberal mindset and thin-skin, this may meet the "legal definition" of sexual harassment. To the rest of us, it is a pile of steaming caca de toro. He probably said he liked her earings.
I take it this lawyer backed out of his announced press conference this afternoon?
Yep. I’ve never before seen anonymous statements be so vauge. This is a lot of second hand smoke.
It will be too late. The same trick doesn’t work twice and if they did wait and come out no one that matters would believe them. Rightfully or wrongly it would be like Bill Clinton and I am certain Herman Cain is not a Bill Clinton. That there is not real salacious specifics released means that most likely there were none. People tend to be much more open when they are anonymous than when they finally have the spot light on them.
This really has the feeling of there being no ‘there there’.
You can bet that whatever happened is so far from sexual harassment that to release it would make his accusers look like thin-skinned cry babies.
Nope they had it to say that the lady didn’t want to talk not even to release an anonymous statement through her lawyer.
Bennett replied, In all my years of lawyering, Ive never seen anyone accused of sexual harassment say, I did it.
Guess he never heard of Clinton admitting he did have sex with that woman. And he paid Paula.
They come out swinging later and NO one is going to pay attention. The 1st question will be why are you coming out now when you were offered the chance a year ago.
This story is dead.
I heard that!
Two ways to destroy a man....call him a racist.....call him a sexual harrasser. They actually tried the first and it didn’t work. So they go to number two.
That is the only explaination. If they really wanted to hurt him and take no flack they could just say whatever it was that he did that was so clearly bad. I’ve never seen allegations be this weak in this kind of situation. It’s like that Steve Deace chump from Iowa. Cain commented on how nice the ladies looked he worked with and he went all anal.
I wish that were the case, but for Republicans, the rules are different. They will trot these girls out later on in an effort to suppress the evangelical turnout.
“If Cain actually looks like he will win the nomination, you can be sure these woman will come out of the woodwork.”
Maybe so but the effect will be greatly diminished by then. In a way it will be old hat.
