Mr. Cain, Please Explain!

Just when you think all of the naughty accusations have been rolled out against Mr. Herman Cain…………WHOA!

I do not think he will survive this, I do not think there is anyway that he can.  His lawyers response is making certain that the public sits up and takes notice:

The story about the accuser just went live at Fox Atlanta. She gave them her name, an interview on camera, and she claims she has records substantiating the relationship. Here’s the curious non-denial denial from Cain’s lawyer. Hmmm:

“Mr. Cain has been informed today that your television station plans to broadcast a story this evening in which a female will make an accusation that she engaged in a 13-year long physical relationship with Mr. Cain. This is not an accusation of harassment in the workplace – this is not an accusation of an assault – which are subject matters of legitimate inquiry to a political candidate.

Rather, this appears to be an accusation of private, alleged consensual conduct between adults – a subject matter which is not a proper subject of inquiry by the media or the public. No individual, whether a private citizen, a candidate for public office or a public official, should be questioned about his or her private sexual life. The public’s right to know and the media’s right to report has boundaries and most certainly those boundaries end outside of one’s bedroom door.

Mr. Cain has alerted his wife to this new accusation and discussed it with her. He has no obligation to discuss these types of accusations publicly with the media and he will not do so even if his principled position is viewed unfavorably by members of the media.”

Here is the most compelling part of the statement: 

“Rather, this appears to be an accusation of private, alleged consensual conduct between adults – a subject matter which is not a proper subject of inquiry by the media or the public. No individual, whether a private citizen, a candidate for public office or a public official, should be questioned about his or her private sexual life.”

Private, consensual conduct, not a subject of inquiry……………(should not) be questioned about his PRIVATE sexual life.

Hey, conservatives, how does this sit with you?

  1. I foresee that he removes himself from the race. He as much as said so.

    This is one too many, and has more “proof” than the other “revelations”. Better that this comes out now so that his supporters can decide how they want to go forward.

    This one seems like the real deal – I say this mostly because of the lawyers statement rather than anything else yet.

    Cain did the denial – if anything trumps that, if there is any credible proof to this claim…………he’s toast.

  2. I agree he may be toast, but how twisted. All that is known about obama, and this is what the media wastes it’s time on?
    No one is perfect and this is between he and his wife and God. obama on the other hand has lied and just ignores us.

    • Yes, obama has. But we conservatives hold ourselves to different standards than the “anything goes” communists.

      I was most put off by the statement from the lawyer, it has a very damning ring to it. I don’t know how he does damage control if this woman does indeed have records of any sort.

      Plus it turns out that Cains denial isn’t exactly a flat out denial. I just don’t like getting diddled around in circles. We deserve a genuine candidate.

      This has made me grumpy.

      • Dear ladysforest,

        Grump completely not, for the good news is that Bawney Fwank has just resigned, leaving his (house) seat wide open!

        The bad news is that Massachusetts won’t get a chance to finally dethrone the old queen in a resounding rout at the poles. It’s also too bad that the country never had the gumption to have him charged and convicted for his banking crimes and removed from office in well-deserved shackles, for now we will probably have to suffer public infrastructure and institutions being sullied with his namesake.

        At least since he’s not a tenth the man Reagan was, he probably won’t rate anything like a national airport or his statue at the Capitol rotunda. Maybe something like the Barney Frank Memorial Freeway Tunnel or naming some local municipal sewer works in Massachusetts after him would be more suiting. He certainly doesn’t rate a whole building anywhere, but I bet someplace like Penn State would at least be willing to name a back door or two after him (no doubt, the rear entrances to the boy’s gym).

  3. Alas Thinkwell, our Queen of these United States has broken it’s heart against the unfortunate risk that presents were that Queen to once again seek the confidence of the people. HRM Queen Frank frankly admits also to a repugnance at the thought of doing anything so very disgustingly common as “raising money”.

    Ah well. The jolly old gal may have a plan in mind, that to do all which is possible in advancing progressive programs with no care to the ramifications on the old career. *cough*

    Much damage can be done by a well connected darling of the left when there is no campaign to worry about losing.

  4. I am not bothered by Cain even if he did it. I am not going to judge him. The left gets us everytime with this trick. I’m not falling for it anymore.

  5. I’m not going to say anything either other than I want to protect myself from bearing false witness. To me it’s still a she said/he said thing.

  6. I’ll tell you who is driving me crazy, Carl Rove/ he makes me sick. I am so tired of him and his arrogance. He keeps trying to tell us what we think, I know what I think and I dont think like him.
