Did Cain Do It?

Pages: 1 2

A controversy has developed this week surrounding Politico’s allegations that Herman Cain was sued by two separate women for sexual harassment when he was head of the National Restaurant Association during the 1990s.  According to Politico, “The women complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Cain that made them angry and uncomfortable, the sources said, and they signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them financial payouts to leave the association.  The agreements also included language that bars the women from talking about their departures.”

Politico called up the Cain campaign for comment, which were refused. So the questions persist.  What exactly did Cain do, if anything?  Did he engage in innuendo-filled conversations and ask sexually suggestive questions of the women? Did he, as Politico somewhat ridiculously accused, make “physical gestures that were not overtly sexual but that made women who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable and that they regarded as improper”?

Has a vaguer standard for sexual harassment ever been articulated?

Because of the vagueness of the charges and their suspicious timing, coming as Cain leaps ahead in national polls, conservatives have jumped to Cain’s defense.  Using Clarence Thomas’ famous phrase, Ann Coulter called the story a “high-tech lynching.”  Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center was just as forceful: “In the eyes of the liberal media, Herman Cain is just another uppity black American who has had the audacity to leave the liberal plantation.  So they must destroy him, just as they tried destroying Clarence Thomas.”  Rush Limbaugh went after Politico for using “the ugliest racial stereotypes they can to attack a black conservative.”

Because of that strong response from conservatives, many are now wondering who planted the story in the first place.  Was it another conservative candidate who got hold of the information?  Was it the Obama team, which didn’t like the look of Cain’s quick ascendance?  Or was it just a coup by Politico?

Time will possibly tell.  But for now the real question remains:  Did Cain do it?

The indicators say he didn’t.  While Politico chalks up Cain’s various statements about the settlements to dishonesty – Cain has variously said he knew nothing about the settlements, then said that there were cash payouts to a woman who accused him of harassment – it is more likely that Cain was birdwalking because the restrictions of settlement agreements generally include confidentiality on both sides.  If Cain says too much, he probably risks violating those confidentiality provisions, which would free the accusers to say anything they please, defeating the purpose of the settlement to begin.

    Why does he answer? Clinton never really did…..Cain should tell reporters that he'll answer all their questions after they clear "sex matter" with Clinton and Edwards (meaning never).
    Or do what Algor always did – every question was ignored by him, and instead of answer there was his "elect me!" speech….
    MSM urinalists never go after Democraps. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

      • Herman Caintonette

        The real story involving Cain is possible felony campaign finance violations, and his stunning ignorance of world affairs, but sex attracts the media like flies to you know what. However, this situation speaks to Cain's character and veracity, and not in a positive manner.

        As any decent trial lawyer will tell you, the best way to get control over unflattering information is to address it first. If Cain had gotten in front of this one, he might well have survived it. At this point, his ersatz campaign/book tour is wounded, if not fatally. This hurts his brand.

    • tagalog

      Why does he answer in the face of Bill Clinton's earlier example? Because Herman Cain has a sense of honor and personal integrity, that's why.

      Clinton violently raped a women. Lisa Meyers of NBC researched it, concurred and the expose was squashed.

  • Amused

    According to people in the National Restaurant Association , this was inevitable . There are dozens of witnesses to Cain's behavior . They knew this would eventually happen . More shocking proof …lol…that peccadillos are BI-PARTISAN .
    And its always the same story from outraged apologists for their respective "attackers "…well nimrods , think about this ….if the behavior wasn't there , there wouldn't be any allegations or women coming out of the woodwork ,,,ya know just like Clinton .
    Suck it up.

      More importantly have you ever served in a position that required you to supervise others? Most likely not. The minute you require someone to do their job when they are not qualified or simply not pulling their weight, they get angry and/or upset. It is the non-union way to file a grievance.

    • tagalog

      To my mind, the most pertinent fact is that the sexual harassment claim didn't get made until the worker was fired for her incompetence. I guess Mr. Cain was OK up to that point.

        During the Anita Hill issue with Thomas, I was in a class of 32 people and asked, "Who in this class has been sexually harassed in the workplace? 26 people raised their hands including men.

          What was the express or implied meaning of the term "sexual harassment?"

          The 26 out of 32 response is pathetic no matter how you look at it.

      • Upaces

        Neither Men or Women want to file a grievance because the back lash is horrible.
        1) They are humiliated;
        2) If he/she is in a position of power — they fear they won't be believed;
        3) They fear the repercussions (can't eat, sleep and sometimes turn to alcohol because of the stress);
        4) She/he may begin to make serious errors on the job due to the stress which can lead to losing a good job.

        • tagalog

          Of course, for a person of principle, there's a very simple solution to this issue. I know I wouldn't want to work for someone that was hitting on me; it would make me very uncomfortable and, finally, angry.

          And your list of difficulties that attend a claim of sexual harassment applies equally to a person who is falsely accused of sexual harassment, doesn't it? Imagine if the complainant merely complained about Herman Cain just to obtain some money, or to take some revenge for being called incompetent. Herman Cain is now alleged to be just trash, right? He's not lucky enough to be anonymous – he's right out there, the target for today.

          Remember that the complainants so far remain entirely anonymous, their complaints are so vague (he made some non-sexual gesture that a complainant found offensive, he made some innocuous statement that apparently was interpreted as off-color; no rape, no groping, no solicitation of sexual favors, nothing like that, just non-sexual gestures and some sort of words of unknown type) -due to the fact that the settlement is to be kept confidential if the alleged victim wants to keep her loot- as to be highly questionable as to their sexual nature and the truth of the allegations.

            Tagalog, this is a true story. There was a man who was the Director of one of the major departments for the City of Dallas.
            His "female" employee went into his office to show him the graph he asked her to design for the next City Council meeting.
            As she was pointing to each category and indicating with her finger where the line continued up (and into a specific department) — he'd place his finger between her fingers ever so gently.
            Shocked and not able to ascertain it if was "in fact" sexual harassment, she waited so she could give a "solid" complaint.
            He was very slick — each time it was "if-ie" but there was a pattern of behavior that made her feel uncomfortable enough that she applied to change departments. There were more than three incidents with "no words" but she felt dirty every time she left his office.
            How do you write down such simple gestures in a complaint that can be scoffed at or simply dismissed? Instead she transferred to another dept. where they were no incidents at all and remained working for the City of Dallas.

          • tagalog

            How do you write that up as sexual harassment? It isn't. You don't. If it bothers you so bad, you leave.

            Tagalog, it is sexual harassment if it "implies" anything sexual. Use your imagination. Stroking between two fingers with the middle finger?
            How else would you explain that other than sexual?

          • Upaces

            Everyone (both men and women) should be able to work in a 'Professional environment" where any sexual comments and/or actions are condemned. You've got to be a man to say something like that. You don't leave because "it is YOUR JOB"; YOUR livelihood. Why should the victim of sexual overtures be expected to leave when they did nothing wrong. Which brings me to the idea — with your response, it sounds to me as if you are guilty of sexually harassing someone. IT IS AGAINST THE LAW.

          • Upaces

            If you really believe they are anonymous? That is a naive statement from someone who has never been through it. Tagalon, one thing you are VERY right about, A "master" of sexual harassment is very slick: An accidental touch (which can be explained as an "oops"; however when there is a "pattern of multiple times along with remarks that can be taken in two different ways?
            !) Would he/she ever say remarks or make gestures to the same sex?
            2) Is the behavior (whether physical or verbal) a pattern?
            3) The seductive stare;
            4) A remark that (deliberately) be taken two ways?

            All of us know when we date or socialize when someone is "coming on to us" — don't we!

    The supposed witnesses are not obligated to remain silent so why they are not coming out with full stories? This may also mean there is a questionable truth to it being "Real" sexual harassment, This may mean it had been just "Adult" Joking and Fooling around and nothing as serious as what "Real" sexual harassment is, I think Clinton was irresponsible, unfaithful and a Lair (Should have gone to jail for lying) but Monica was all in and was just as much the Player as Bill, Edwards didn't rape the Women he just stole from his campaign to pay her, Al Gore may have chased the Women around the massage table and tried to get some but the Media quickly ended that coverage, T. Kennedy was a Sexual Aggressor and Murder but he barely got a notice, many Women in the work place who want equal treatment are also the ones that dress for sex and flirt till they get a catch and when the "Sucker" fish don't pay they start talking "Sexual" Harassment while the Women who try to get ahead on equal footing pay the price, it won't ever change.

      Have you forgotten? The only reason Anita Hill came forward was because the FBI asked her about it, and it is bad form to lie to the government during an investigation (our public servants have no qualms about lying to us). It seems that Hill is the more believable in hindsight, as one of his former paramours has corroborated it, alleging that he was a serious porn phreak.

      The vetting process for judges can border on the surreal. One confidant of a judge was asked if the candidate had ever abused alcohol. He said that the judge once put a fine red wine in the refrigerator; the agent actually wrote that one down!

      I laughed at the Hill fiasco, but DisclosureGate is serious. Thomas has admitted to having committed serial felonies, as no competent tax lawyer would not know what the definition of "non-investment income" was. This is a part of why OWS is upset and justifiably so: If we had done what Timothy Geitner and Clarence Thomas had done, we'd be joining Wesley Snipes in the slammer. But they get to slide?

      I generally concur with Thomas' originalism; it is a pity that he only uses it as a thin excuse for his outcome-based jurisprudence. As one wag put it, Scalia is about as faithful to his originalism as Tiger was to ex-wife Elin, and Thomas is not far behind.

  • Yathrib B'Karov

    The left's misogyny is directly analogous to its racism. These filthy internazis strive to create a system in which a person is judged only by their ethnicity and never by their character, a world in which character is itself an anachronism. Likewise they seek a reality in which all intergender relations are defined by fear – the abject terror of unwittingly committing a sexhate crime of which the accuser is also the abiter. This dull dystopia is the dream of those with no character and no sex appeal, twisted wretches who point pyrotechnic projectiles at the parade purely to piss thereon. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to sexually harass my girlfriend. I might also racially abuse her.

  • Chezwick_Mac

    My problem is with the double-standard mentioned by 'Wild Jew' and others above. Bill Clinton raped Juanita Broderick, exposed himself to Paula Jones, and sexually assaulted Kathleen Willey by placing her hand on his penis. But none of this was sufficient to discredit him in the eyes of the feminist establishment. Hell, Gloria Steinem characterized his assault of Willey as a "clumsy pass"!

    My guess is that Herman Cain did NOTHING remotely as egregious as Clinton. But that matters not one iota to the hypocrites on the Left. They CRUCIFIED Clarance Thomas for using the words "pubic hair" in mixed company. And now, they are prepared to crucify Herman Cain. It's sickening.

    • Herman Caintonette

      My problem with that statement is that those allegations–by their very nature–fall into the category of "he said, she said." I don't know whether Clinton raped Broaddrick, but there is no independent evidence to support the claim. I don't know whether Cain hit on the three ladies in question, but if you are going to convict Bill Clinton on the ground that several accusations were made by several ladies, it logically follows that if you have any semblance of intellectual integrity, you would have to convict Cain, as well. If anything, the corroboration by third-parties with no real dog in the hunt would not help his case, so the case against Cain is stronger.

      Personally, I've never been accused of it. Cain can't say that.

    • trickyblain

      Wow. You flatly claim Clinton committed felonies, even though he was never tried, let alone convicted for the crimes you attribute to him. And "guess" that Cain did "NOTHING," even though he settled just as Clinton

    Rush Limbaugh went so far today as to read an entire letter on air designed to make people think Gov. Romney’s campaign was behind the leak of the current Herman Cain controversy. Fortunately, Hot Air saw through this ploy and presents a more likely source for the leak. Even Herman Cain’s own campaign is blaming an advisor to Rick Perry for leaking the story. Furthermore, a pollster for one of Rick Perry’s Super PACs is pouring fuel on the fire in an effort to end Cain’s campaign.

    Even if Cain did 'do' it, how does it matter? Clinton 'did it' in the Oval Office, and has been forgotten. What man isn't susceptible to the opportunity of a sexual 'outing'? How many of us can say they have never done it, or that they would not have done it under the circumstances?
    Such charges simply deserve to be ignored. That the opposition has stooped to this level is indicative of the fact that it has been rattled, and Cain's campaign is going in the right direction.

  • Herman Caintonette

    Caesar put it this way: "fere libenter homines id quod volunt credunt." You don't like Clinton and liberals and therefore, he is presumptively guilty. That he was a serial philanderer is not open to dispute. That he committed perjury is not open to dispute. But it is one thing to get a hummer from an intern, and quite another to rape a woman. It's water under the bridge, as there is no proof that he did and even if he did, no one is going to do anything about it now.

    We don't know what Cain did and didn't do, but we do know that there is one woman who has come forward, and two men who corroborated the general claim that he had crossed the line in public. It's not "he said, she said." By your own standard, you can't give him a pass, except to claim that Clinton's sins were mortal, whereas Cain's were venial.

    Apart from the pall it casts on Cain's veracity and personal integrity, this is a tempest in a teacup; unfortunately, the media is drawn to sex scandals like flies to you-know-what. There are far more important and substantive issues to focus on.

    I worked with Politicians for a very long time. I can tell you that the "temptation" is always there. When Men (and Women too) become strong in their own political positions will "attract" the opposite sex quite easily. It all comes down to whether they "need their ego stroked." IT HAPPENS in EVERY politicians life whether it is local city politics, PTA and/or State, or National Level. It is all part of it. It takes an extremely strong person to resist it. The best thing a politician can do? Accept responsibility for it the first time — and make damn sure he/she doesn't do it again…once they get away with it — it will continue. It is ALL a part of politics. Hate to sound so jaded. It is what it is.

    Obviously, it is not vague.
    Please step back and be objective when you decide who you want.
    We CANNOT afford another mistake.
    These are his statements within a 72 hr period:

    1) I would have Muslims on my staff (Muslims are allowed to lie to Infidels);
    2) When asked about it? States that he "Misspoke (sp)"; in other words, he didn't know what he was really saying.
    3) Changed it to — they can give me an Oath (same mistake–Muslims allowed to lie to infidels);
    4) I will have homosexuals on my staff;
    5) Hard-line stance on Homosexuality as a sin
    Homosexuality is a sin and a choice
    6) He apologized to Mexico for voicing "I will put an electric fence on the border."

    Gonzales should have been disbarred and Thomas should be criminally prosecuted — ON THE MERITS. Rubio fudged his resume, thereby qualifying him as a politician. Estrada had no right to a seat on the bench; the Senate is at liberty to exercise their advise and consent authority as they see fit. Justice Scalia explains why the system has gone so askew, and the Left was on solid ground. Cain is imploding because he keeps changing his story. So, where is the scandal?
