Latest Cain Scandal: Herman Asked Woman Out to Eat & Then Stuck Dinner Party With the Bill


Oh brother…
A woman came forward this week and told The Washington Examiner that Herman Cain asked an Egyptian woman to dinner several years ago and then went out with a group of women and stuck them with the bill.
That’s it. Nothing more – Nothing less… And its the top story on Memeorandum right now.
The Washington Examiner reported:

A former employee of the United States Agency for International Development says Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain asked her to help arrange a dinner date for him with a female audience member following a speech he delivered nine years ago.

Donna Donella, 40, of Arlington, said the USAID paid Cain to deliver a speech to businessmen and women in Egypt in 2002, during which an Egyptian businesswoman in her 30s asked Cain a question.

“And after the seminar was over,” Donella told The Washington Examiner, “Cain came over to me and a colleague and said, ‘Could you put me in touch with that lovely young lady who asked the question, so I can give her a more thorough answer over dinner?'”

Donella, who no longer works for USAID, said they were suspicious of Cain’s motives and declined to set up the date. Cain responded, “Then you and I can have dinner.” That’s when two female colleagues intervened and suggested they all go to dinner together, Donella said.

Cain exhibited no inappropriate sexual behavior during the dinner, though he did order two $400 bottles of wine and stuck the women with the bill, she said.

    So basically they came forward to tell us they have nothing to offer….?
    What a scoop.
    What’s next ?Will Cain’s neighbor come out and say while he never actually harassed her she always wondered if he would….?

  • Gini

    So? What’s the story?

    This is an absurd piece of journalism that will only discourage other conservative blacks from entering the political arena. Way to go Republicans for piling on the Herman cain lynching. Leftists do not openly criticise each other and they are fervent and tenacious in their mission to destroy America. If only Republicans could emulate the same level of single minded focus on the goal of saving it. Barack and Michele have stuck the taxpayer with a heck of alot more than a 400 dollar dinner tab.

    Hi, I am holding a press conference today at 3pm to announce I am the love child of Herman Cain. I will be with my attorney Glorious Redhead. Herman is my daddy and now I want to know which of these women is my mother.

  • Hermain Cain’s Neighbor

    Back in 1986 Hermain Cain let his dog poop on my lawn.

    It made me very uncomfortable.

  • Sam Stone

    The latest accuser was not an employee of Cains or the NRA so what makes this harassment as opposed to just a turned down man looking for a good evening?

    The charges are getting WEAKER not stronger.

  • Greg

    Read the article and the lynching of a black man continues. Where is Rommeny, Palin, Perry, Paul, Boehner, and the rest of the GOP on allowing this to happen while they are silent.

    The only story of merit would be why the state department paid the expenses of a private citizen to travel to Egypt to deliver a speach.

    Barry doesn’t have these “sex fiend black man” drives because he’s half-white and has been raised and dominated by women. He’s a proper beta male progressive.

    But the messaging is quite clear: a true black man is a testosterone fueled silverback alpha male who wants to screw everything it comes in contact, with or without permission, according to the Left’s racial superiority myth.

    No, we haven’t come very far since progressivism’s eugenics programs, forced sterilization of single minority women and mentally impaired individuals, socially targeted abortion programs for “undesirable” populations, and covert praise for Germany’s resolution of “impure Jewish genes.”

    Politics of personal destruction II

    by Cal Thomas
    November 7, 2011

    [The politics of personal destruction is nothing new. It has been around
    from the beginning of the country, when worse things were said about
    presidents and presidential candidates than have been alleged against
    Herman Cain.

    After more than a week of innuendo, hearsay and rumor about alleged
    incidents of sexual harassment when Cain was president of the National
    Restaurant Association, the country on Monday was presented with one
    woman, a former employee at the NRA’s educational foundation, by
    none other than powerhouse attorney/camera hog/defender of
    disgruntled porn stars, Gloria Allred.

    At a New York news conference, Allred (who, according to the Federal
    Election Commission, contributed $1,000 to Hillary Clinton and $2,300
    to Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign) introduced
    Sharon Bialek.

    Bialek then read a statement that sounded as though a Democratic
    Party activist had written it. Bialek claimed Cain touched her
    inappropriately when she went to him for help in getting her old job
    back with the educational foundation.]

    Do they have a Cain Watch twitter hashtag yet?

    He copied my answers during a test in preschool… after he took my Lincoln Logs at playtime.

    I saw him with two different colored socks once.

    He siphoned my ethanol.

    He borrowed my drill and never brought it back.

    He has loud BBQs in his back yard.

    He uses unleaded gas.

    He got a tattoo at 18.

    I once saw him in Hooters eating hot wings and talking to the waitress.

    He’s related to George Bush, the Jews, Anita Bryant and Oral Roberts.

    I saw him at Building 7.

    He shot a man for snoring. /s

    I can’t imagine what his wife’s going through.

    I vote for GP to be lynched! :)

    Hmmm…isn’t that what Liberal feminism is all about? Shouldn’t the women have paid for the wine to prove they are capable and equal? I can’t believe Jim even posted this. Jim there really are other stories out there you know.

    Gateway Pundit Headline:

    Examiner: Herman Cain Asked Woman to
    Dinner & Then Stuck Group With the Bill

    The Washington Examiner Headline:

    Fifth woman raises questions about Cain’s behavior

    bottom line:

    glad someone we know is getting off on this..

    while portraying Conservative TEA Party Republican
    Patriots as stuff that circle’s cesspool drains.. *sigh*

    They’re palinizing him.

    It’s harder to do this time because we’ve seen it before. Eventually, though, they’ll probably reduce him because you and I do not represent enough well informed Americans to carry him to victory next November.

    Since the opening of the attack on Cain, Obama’s polls have improved…

    The palinization process reduces all national problems to sexual voyeurism.

    People love to talk about sex. They just love it. But they don’t necessarily understand why the deficit is so high so many have no firm opinion and are uncomfortable stating one. The polls clearly show a hell of a lot of people believe Obama and the media and blame the Republicans.

    The effect of the Cain coverage is to force people to choose between Obama and Cain — and to forget about budget deficits, unemployment, Europe, socialism, Solyndra, encroaching jihadism, etc. People are looking to do that. They want to forget the riots in the streets and just watch celebrity f***ing on the television.

    There has never been a more perfect fall guy than Cain. You do the math.

    Even five hundred accusers “coming forward” does not mean there are any witnesses, evidence or proof.

    To accept a claim such as this, one needs credible witnesses and hard evidence to amount to reasonable proof.

    I find it very suspicious that, although these events supposedly occurred in the 1990’s, when anything was construed as sexual harrassment, no one “came forward” in 2004, when Mr. Cain ran for the U.S. Senate. I find it very suspicious that no one “came forward” when he announced his candidacy for President this past spring. I find it very suspicious that women are “coming forward” only when Mr. Cain’s poll numbers are climbing to levels that alarm political opponents.

    The statement “where there is smoke there is fire” is just STUPID – in national politics, it could very well be a smoke machine. I still support Herman Cain.
