Herman Cain accused of sexual harasment.

Well, it almost worked with Clarence Thomas. Lets see how well Herman Cain survives the onslaught.

The timing of this is interesting. If any of the accusations do damage Cain I think Romney benefits the most.

So was Bill Clinton.

Were the charges prosecuted, or dismissed as fraudulent?

I think Cain will be fine. He seems to be made of Teflon.

This election cycle will be epic.

These 'dirty tricks' are only the start - is this a rival playing the game I wonder.

Anyway - a powerful man is attracted to, and for women

Who knew

A bit odd this would come out this early.
Not odd that he's denying it.

Everyone on LTUP has sexually harassed me. Including me. There, now we're all just as guilt of Cain is of being accused of sexual harassment.

First glance, it would bother me more if the suits had actually been filed against Cain himself instead of seeing an opportunity to bleed an organization and then take a buyout of a seemingly little amount. People threaten all sorts of things to get a dollar. Don't know if that is the case or not and time will tell. The bad part is that when one agrees to keep settlement confidential, it make me also wonder about the individual who then talks about it. Mr. Cain is also, I would imaging, afraid to discuss too much because of his former relationship to the group that made the settlement.

I hope it isn't true, but in all honesty, that isn't the purpose. It is to "Stain Cain" and that is all I believe it is about.

The press will be a bulldog on this issue and will not let it rest until the women talk and Cain spends months explaining it, This could well be the issue that kills his campaign, as Americans will tolerate cocaine and pot use, and consensual sex with the interns, but harassment - not so much.

People are paid off to make them go away, even if the allegations are unproved and untrue. I saw that happen in a company I worked at.

This is an unfortunate revelation. I like Cain, although I don't think he was the best all-around Rep candidate, but he would have made a terrific VP.
