  • Herman Cain’s Campaign Suspended

    By suspending his campaign instead of quitting his campaign, Herman can still get federal matching funds in 2012. But the campaign is over. Even had it continued, it was over. I had thought and expected that Cain would continue until Iowa. He had enough money. Dropping out after losing in Iowa would have distracted from the present issues. Dropping out now will be viewed by a great many as an admission against interests that Herman Cain did have a 13 year affair.

    Anyone who saw the debate on Saturday night and observed Herman Cain’s performance clearly saw a man who was terrified of the questions he was being asked and was hoping to be noticed as little as possible. Apparently, there was a good reason for that. Herman Cain apparently sat down with the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel editorial board to talk foreign policy and, well… this happened. Now, normally I would include a description of what happened in this video but this is one of those videos you really do have to see to believe. You cannot grasp how utterly clueless Cain is...
  • The savage lynching of Herman Cain

    The lynching of Herman Cain has reached heights comparable with the oak tree that liberals wish they could hang minority conservatives from. In the great tradition of Clarence Thomas and Sarah Palin, the left has decided to add Herman Cain to the list of those who need to be set on fire and hung from a tree simply for existing and breathing while being a minority conservative. Anonymous women have accused Herman Cain of bad behavior of an inappropriate sexual nature. Now a woman has finally decided to come forward. To make the situation even more highly charged and explosive,...
  • It’s weird that these racist right-wing tea party wackos seem to like me so much

    I am an American Black Conservative (ABC). Since April 15, 2009 I have spoken at over 30 citizens’ movement events, which have included Tea Party rallies, prosperity conferences and other conservative gatherings. At those events I have yet to find the racists and extremists that the liberals continue to say exist. In fact, I and my message of “Take Back Our Government” have been enthusiastically received. Not to be boastful, but to illustrate my point, last Saturday at the Virginia Tea Party convention of over 2,300 attendees, I received no less than five standing ovations during my 20-minute keynote address....

  • Under Cain, NRA launched sexual harassment fight

    11/05/2011 7:40:41 AM PDT · by DBCJR · 37 replies
    When sexual harassment complaints against Herman Cain unfolded at the National Restaurant Association in the late 1990s, the issue was all too familiarfor the trade association. In the wake of the televised 1991 Clarence Thomas Supreme Court confirmation hearings — and the widely publicized sexual harassment charges leveled against him by Anita Hill — American businesses had been hit by a wave of sexual harassment cases. And the restaurant industry, in particular, was hit especially hard. Industry officials saw it coming — none other than Cain himself warned as long ago as 1991 that changes in federal law resulting from...
  • We were wrong about Herman Cain and sexual harassment

    11/04/2011 6:26:08 PM PDT · by Maelstorm · 104 replies ^ | 11/4/2011 | By Alexandra Petri
    Maybe we were reading these sexual harassment allegations wrong. They don’t seem to have hurt Cain at all. If anything, they’ve made him stronger. A Washington Post-ABC Poll found him still nearly tied with Romney in the polls — even after the allegations made news! The Monday after they surfaced was a banner day for fundraising Cain. More than a million dollars of donations reportedly poured in. Maybe the Rick Perry staffer who so cleverly traveled back to the past to seed these allegations more than a decade ago should have thought harder. So far, they seem to be having...
  • With No Specifics to the Accusations, Herman Cain Wins This Fight

    11/04/2011 7:40:06 PM PDT · by Maelstorm · 62 replies ^ | 11/04/2011 | By Jim Geraghty
    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 Cain’s vehement, blanket denial, Bennett replied, “In all my years of lawyering,...
  • Herman's High-Tech Lynching

    No one who followed politics 20 years ago will forget the night when Clarence Thomas sent an electric charge through a Senate hearing room. As liberal Democrats pushed the unproven sexual harassment charges of Anita Hill, in an attempt to destroy Thomas's chance to serve on the Supreme Court, Thomas called them out for conducting a national disgrace. "This is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves." This line packed a wallop because Hill's charges were about as proven as the old charges of perverted indecency against white women that were concocted...
  • Steve King: Cain accusers are ‘liberal activists’

    U.S. Rep. Steve King gave his opinion of news that GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain was previously accused of sexual harassment. King told Jake Sherman of Politico that the women who accused Cain are likely “liberal activists” and “official hyperventilaters of the first order.” The Kiron Republican also said news outlets were wrong to report the story, which Politico broke, indicating that unless there were several women willing to come forward with full details, the story should have never been given any ink. Allegations were made by two women and stem back to the the time when Cain was served...

    The Right Scoop ^ | Nov 4, 2011
    Joel Bennett held a press conference moments ago on behalf of his client who alleged sexual harassment charges against Herman Cain, and it amounted to a big fat zero of any relevant information to this. The woman doesn’t want to reveal her identity or her side of the story. What’s interesting is that the NRA, according to their statement below, would have released her from the confidentiality portion of the agreement to allow her to vocalize her side of the story. But they still opted not to. So, end of story. Here is the NRA’s statement: “We have seen the...

    Liberal attack-dog organization Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission Friday over allegations that Prosperity USA, a nonprofit advocacy corporation run by Herman Cain campaign manager Mark Block, paid for iPads and travel related to Cain’s presidential campaign. If true, says CREW, the Cain campaign — and Block personally — would be guilty of violating at least two federal election laws. The allegations were first reported in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on October 30, based on internal financial records the newspaper said it obtained. The Journal Sentinel reported the following day that...

    The hacker group Anonymous has issued a statement today denying they were ever harassed by Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain. In a statement released on an online news forum a spokeperson for the group threatened attacks on Politico, MSNBC, Huffington Post and a myriad of other political punditry sites for continuing to spread "this vicious, totally unfounded lie."On Sunday Politico ran a thinly sourced story accusing Herman Cain of a pattern of sexual harrassment against women all referred to as "Anonymous." The story has ignited a firestorm of controversy on television and print news, as well as online. Herman Cain's...

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | Fri, Nov 04, 2011 at 11:49AM)
    A new ABC News/Washington Post poll out today shows the allegations stemming from Cain's tenure in the 1990s as head of the National Restaurant Association haven't made much of an impact. Seven in 10 Republicans in the survey say the allegations don't matter when it comes to picking a presidential candidate. A majority of GOP and GOP-leaning voters, or 55%, say the allegations are not a "serious matter." But the poll, taken Oct. 31-Nov. 3, shows some challenges for Cain. Among the 39% who say the allegations are serious, half say it makes them less likely to support the businessman...

    As readers may have guessed, I really like the London tabloids and broadsheets, particularly the London Daily Mail. The newspaper watches the USA like a hawk as its editors shed light on interesting stories that Yankee editors blow off. But today, the London Daily Mail showed its London Derriere with its silly coverage on Herman Cain, even as the story dies due to lack of interest. Someone sent the newspaper pictures from his yearbook for nearly a half-century ago and he is shown with — gasp — two different co-eds. Shocking.
  • When did Herman Cain change? (Vanity)

    Ok, this has been bothering me. According to Wikipedia, Cain became CEO of the NRA in 1996 until 1999. This is a 3 year span out of all his 40 something years of being in the workforce. This is when all these supposed sexual harassments took place, right? So my question is--why would he suddenly become a pervert during these 3 years and no other time?

    The harassment scandal highlights Cain's rift with Iowa's most dangerous conservative talker. Herman Cain has messed with the wrong Iowan. One strand of the multifaceted scandal unfolding around the Republican presidential candidate this week has been the charge that Cain treated female staffers of Des Moines-based radio host Steve Deace in a manner Deace found "awkward and inappropriate." While Deace has refused to describe the interaction that prompted that characterization, he has also spent the week relentlessly pounding Cain on his nightly talk show -- and taking to task the conservatives who, at least at first, largely defended the former...

    The settlement agreement between the National Restaurant Association and a woman who accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment was reached in September 1999--and was not signed by Cain himself, according to Joel Bennett, a lawyer for the woman. Bennett, who has a copy of the settlement agreement, said four people signed it: the woman, two lawyers representing the association and Bennett himself. Bennett said the agreement was resolved relatively quickly, about two or three months after she complained.
