The Herman Cain Sex Victim Tracker: Three and Counting

Thursday, November 3, 2011

Looks like Herman has some ‘splaining to do.

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, the Godfather of Pizza, faced a new round of sexual harassment allegations on Wednesday, with news of a third former female employee who described unwanted, sexual harassment from him.

The third accuser told the AP she had considered filing a workplace complaint against Cain for what she described as “sexually suggestive remarks or gestures” when she was employed the National Restaurant Association and he was the head of the group.

Victim number three says the incident occurred around the same time two co-workers settled separate harassment complaints against Cain, each reportedly for five figures.

Republican pollster Chris Wilson, who worked for the National Restaurant Association during Cain’s tenure, told Reid Mullins at Oklahoma radio station KTOK that he had witnessed at least two such incidents harassment by Cain:

“I was around a couple of times when this happened, and anyone who was involved with the NRA at the time knew that this was going to come up.”

Cain continues to deny the allegations saying “factions that are trying to destroy me personally as well as destroy this campaign.” He points to the rival campaign of Texas Gov. Rick Perry as the source, an accusation Perry’s camp denies.

Meanwhile, Herman Cain keeps talking, and talking, and talking. But his defense has been marred by shifting recollections and explanations. He first pleaded ignorance of the accusations or any settlement, but subsequently acknowledged that he had known of at least one of them.

His latest strategy is to tell the inquiring media, “Don’t even bother asking me all of these other questions that you all are curious about, okay?”

    Cain is a creep. It’s clear that he just doesn’t get it. How can a man like this climb the corporate food chain as high as Herman has and not understand sexual innuendo is inappropriate? Plus, he’s a married man. Forty-five years married. Like I said. He’s a creep.

  2. R.J. says:

    Normally I’m dismissive of sexual harassment claims since most of the time they’re “he said, she said” situations. But this one’s got a witness, and Herman Cain is trying to get an acquittal in his trial by media.

    Buh bye, Cain. You just handed Wind Sock (Romney) the nomination.

  3. Woodcliffe says:

    When and until the confidentiality agreement is lifted, we won’t know the details or the nature of Cain’s inappropriateness toward these women. The sooner the agreement is lifted, the better. As of now, Cain is out there impugning these women’s character. It’s one-sided and not fair.

  4. Brigadoon says:

    Do you think Herman Cain will show up for the next GOP debate or will he be gone by then?

  5. Debbie Banuelos says:

    Why, if 2 more “flowers” come forward, Herman will have enough for a bouquet.

  6. The Real Adam says:

    Can you begin to imagine the fireworks if one or more of Cain’s accusers is a white woman?

    Trust me, the conservative base of the Republican party will tar and feather old Herman faster than members of a KKK rally in Huntsville, AL, circa’ 1940.

  7. Seabec says:

    There is another GOP/MSNBC debate next Thursday. I wonder if Herman Cain will be there or if he plans to drop out before? If he shows up, it might be worth watching just for entertainment value.

    HC is an idiot. He reminds me of that character on In Living Color who tries to talk white and no one can understand his gibberish. The Real Adam hit the nail on the proverbial head. If any of HC’s are white women, lawd have mercy, child the sheyat will hit the fan! Can you even imagine those social conservatives down in Alabama and Mississippi? Those folks will ready the hangin’ tree for old boy Herman. You see, the roots of racism still run deep in the New South.

  9. Randy Arroyo says:

    The best is, Ole Player sat down for an interview with Ginni Thomas, wife of Clarence Thomas. I mean, seriously dude? Of the thousands of journalists in America, you sat down with the one faux journalist who would best reinforce the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas controversy? I think the American people are well on to Herman Cain’s game.

    A number of years ago, two other women and I were sexually harassed at work by our male boss, the head of an NRA-type organization. Fortunately, our attorney was seasoned in this area of law.

    She said virtually all (male) sexual harassers are in such denial about their behavior that it takes throwing them in jail for them to “get it” – and even jail doesn’t work in some cases.

    Happy ending – the board fired the guy, and no one would hire him. Word was he never accepted he’d done anything wrong.

    IF this behavior follows a general addiction pattern, it makes sense re: alcoholics, drug addicts, etc. being in denial. Some realize consequences of their behavior and get in recovery; some are still in denial when they die.

    Cain’s skeletons came out of the closet on Halloween week.
    Boo to his chances for a presidential run after these cats are out of the bag.

    Two of the three women harassed by Daddy Cain received a settlement amount equal to a years salary. This is not typically done unless there is veracity to the charge(s).

    Back when I worked in Human Relations, there was a case of a young female employee who was repeatedly hit on by an older, married middle manager. Finally, she complained and threatened court action. The amount she settled for was several times her annual salary. The older, married manager was terminated and the entire, ugly ordeal, came to a close.

    Daddy Cain is, in my opinion hiding facts under the guise of “it was 13 years ago and I can’t recall.” Well, the NRA must have records that will help jar Daddy Cain’s faltering memory. Why is the NRA protecting him?
