Liberal Media Tries to Bloody Republican Herman Cain on Halloween

You knew it was going to happen sooner or later…
The liberal media began its organized attack on Herman Cain this weekend.

For Halloween the Obama-media pulled out the fangs and tried to bloody the Cain campaign.
The Politico reported that two women accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment in the 1990s.
The AP reported:

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain’s campaign is denying allegations that he was twice accused of sexual harassment while he was the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.

In a statement Sunday to The Associated Press, his campaign disputed a Politico report that said Cain had been accused of sexually suggestive behavior toward at least two female employees.

The report said the women signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them five-figure financial payouts to leave the association and barred them from discussing their departures. Neither woman was identified.

The report was based on anonymous sources and, in one case, what the publication said was a review of documentation that described the allegations and the resolution.

Cain’s campaign told the AP that the allegations were not true, and amounted to unfair attacks.

“Inside-the-Beltway media have begun to launch unsubstantiated personal attacks on Cain,” spokesman J.D. Gordon said in a written statement. “Dredging up thinly sourced allegations stemming from Mr. Cain’s tenure as the Chief Executive Officer at the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, political trade press are now casting aspersions on his character and spreading rumors that never stood up to the facts.”

Asked if Cain’s campaign was denying the report, Gordon said, “Yes.”

“These are baseless allegations,” Gordon said in a second interview later Sunday evening. “To my knowledge, this is not an accurate story.”

Remember, no matter who the Republicans choose as their candidate, the liberal media will do its best to destroy the nominee… Country be damned.

    Where have we seen this before? (Clarence Thomas).

    Isn’t it odd

    1. the media was silent on “indiscretions” that actually occured in advance of the election of candidates (like Mr. Clinton).

    2. the way the media and the left wants all/any sexual behavior to be “personal choice” when it is one of their chosen ones


    they are now trumpting unproven allegations of sexual predatory behavior by another conservative Black man?

    It sounds like soft racism to me and very ugly.

    Mr. Cain must be a real threat; he is now receiving the Palin/Bachmann/Perry treatment!

    Let’s face the FACTS!

    The real racists belong in the Democrat Party and/or vote for Democrats.

    I am a little concerned about this. I heard a campaign person this morning not denying this, just trying to evade the question.

    If the race card can’t work, we’ll use something else.

    I give the media 20 minutes before they release stories from the poor, unfortunate victims.
    The story didn’t release the names of the accusers, but they left enough visible tracks even Stevie Wonder could follow.

    This is going to backfire and make people despise the media if they didn’t already.
    After having to watch the way that they absolutely and most enthusiastically hid Obama’s background from us and the way that they totally tanked any rumors of scandal about John Edwards this is absolutely disgusting.

    We are going to remember this for a long time. Even people who do not support Herman Cain will understand what a clip job this is.
    The leftie media is scum.

    See??? It’s already working on Susan.

    Anything inside the Beltway is scum, (Rove/Medved) and Cain is an outsider………..

  • Tom Smith

    Sexual harassment is an easy claim. Most black conservatives face that charge when they get successful.

    Let me guess, Amiga Hill? This would be funny if not so serious. Keep in mind many an accuser has been paid hush money just to get rid of a nuisance lawsuit. I wish all states had loser pays tort reform. This reminds me so much of the smear campaign against Justice Clarence Thomas. I hope this has a reverse effect. I appreciate the effort to educate people about Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood and White Supremicist (sp?).

    Susan, my ex wife’s name, you are not too bright?

    So easily manipulated. Wow, kinda like the OWS

    Of course I meant Anita Hill. Not sure why my smart isn’t smart enough to know the name Anita! Of course it also takes a smart operator.

  • eaglewingz08

    Since the reporter allegedly saw the settlement papaers and since only those two women could provide those documents either directly or indirectly they are now in violation of the agreement and should be forced to return all monies allegedly received as well as additional damages to Cain caused by this wrongful disclosure. This is a high tech lynching.

  • IronDioPriest

    I don’t know why you’re complaining about the liberal media Jim. You’ve been doing your own bashing of Cain with hyperbolic and inaccurate headlines and characterizations of his missteps. Your conduct has mead me wonder if you’re not on the Perry campaign payroll.

  • RedBeard

    Show me some proof, any proof at all, and I’ll give this allegation another look. Until then, it just reeks of foul play. And, of course, media bias. As always.

  • Tom63010

    If someone gets a settlement that includes a gag order then “leaks” the story to the press either directly or indirectly shouldn’t that person or persons be required to repay that settlement back to the company or individual that paid that person or persons? I hope that tort reform comes to all 50 states. I think of all the ambulance chasing lawyers on TV that salivate over the prospect of a drug harming a group of people so they can sue. I think of all the cases OS malaria that has killed so many since banning DDT.
