#1 According to Politico, the conversations between Cain and the two women who accused him of inappropriate behavior were "filled with innuendo or personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature, taking place at hotels during conferences, at other officially sanctioned restaurant association events and at the association's offices.
Guilty of raising Cain.

#3 Can anyone imagine Politico, WaPo, NYT, LA Times or NPR putting out a story like this in 2008 that would have involved Obama? Second-hand sources, anonymous sources, speculation, rumor all mixed together about Bambi harassing a woman somewhere?

#4 Considering the source and the timing... not really worried about it being fact.

#5 It was as predictable and as inevitable as the next sunrise or next high tide.
Don't you know this is how the Dems keep blacks under control? To the Dems, if you leave the plantations (democratic party) they will smear, lie, and innuendo you to the death of a thousand cuts. The MSM has more people chasing dirt on Cain than they ever had vetting Obama.
I hope everyone sees the blatant racism and hypocracy of this

#6 Bill Clinton, John Edwards, Gary Hart, JFK, RFK, Teddy, Vince Foster. I suppose there are others too. Talk about hypocrisy.

#7 Just like the Democrats to hit below the belt. But when they get caught with outside women we're all supposed to "move on".

Perhaps they were putting up curtains, discussing a delicious ice cream concoction, or conversing with a certain southern colonel and his family.

#14 Yawn. At least he is not a rapist or a coke head.
He actually is a man of character but he needs to identify when to make no comment on something or study the report when it comes in and try to recall something from 20 years ago. He handled this miserably.
He represented more than 250 million people when he was CEO of the National Restaurant Association.
He learned of these charges, promptly recused himself, Had the human resource commander and his general counsel handle the matter.
The most he probably was told was to keep it confidential and say no more about it, as well the accusers. It's a nuisance lawsuit. It is difficult to get past manager much less high level manager without something like that happening to you in some cases.
I have seen lots of it happen. And I have seen much of it dismissed.
It is a smear campaign straight up. Levin covered it in detail on Mondays show.
But no worry, there will be plenty of coverage so you may forget that Greece is taking the world for a donkey ride whilst our very own currency collapses under debt by hyper-inflation, and we are in a depression?
