Poitico's Ken Vogel, whose publication originally broke the story, discusses sexual harassment claims against Herman Cain.
RELATED STORY: Cain reveals new details about harassment cases, admits settlement
If the democratic machine brought forth this accussing woman why not show proof? Or is this comment about the Democrats just another false accussation.
John, you're taken this dead issue higher than it has just taken place. Why are you trying to cause sensation to affect his efforts in the pools and his intention. Your ways is showing uncertain. Do not blog his intention. What's his charge? This is 36 hours now. "It's not a breaking news" Stop the lynch. CNN is not the authority. His union or assoc has rules and norms. Give Herman 'break'
of course stories of sexual harrassment and sexual abuse are quite common in western society going back to the stories of freud's vienna in the 19th century(where they say many of these reports were false) and there are many accounts and for obvious reasons they usually attach themselves to famous people. One comment in all this is important when accused...if people see there is 'hush money' they may find the allegations true. This may be unfair since many wealthy people dole this money out just not to be bothered by the allegations...however this is the first thing investigators and pundits look for?
Cain has answered and people will either choose to believe him or they won't believe him. It does not mater what the media thinks about the issue they had no part in it as victim or the accused. It is just a story to them. A story that has no real merit. The issue was settled a decade ago one way or the other. Dragging it out and exposing the alleged victims is a violation of their privacy and it does not mater if Cain is running for emperor of China it is none of the medias business. The media are cowards when it comes to the truth and a persons right to privacy. By talking about this day in and day out they risk the persons right to live a private life and they do mot care who it might hurt to get a story.
This story reminds me of the Woman who alleged that she found a finger in her bowl of chili. As it turned out it was all a lie and was a relatives severed finger she put in the Chili. The media went wild with a fairy tale that cost Wendy's millions in loss and still may prevent people from buying their products. It did not mater that it was a lie to the media they ran with the story airing it 24 hours a day 7 days a week. This was irresponsible of the media just like the Herman Cain story is irresponsible. The media never apologized for getting the story wrong then and they will not apologize now for the embarrassment they might cause these two women. Yes, Cain is running for president but these two women are not. They certainly had no idea in 1990 that Cain would run and throwing them under the bus in some media attempt to crucify Cain is a terrible tragedy. I am going to have to rethink where I get my news.
This must be the only way that the other people running against Cain can beat him.Run a complete check on the ones that are running against him and lets find out how goody goody they are.Jim Thomas Phx Az.
