Why of course it’s sexual harassment. But it’ s pretty laughable when the accuser, or at lease one of the anonymous accusers would like to tell her story but can’t due to a gag order placed on her at the time of settlement. And Politico who broke the “story” won’t reveal it’s sources which is understandable, but they’re loving the story and have kept it hot when God only knows we should maybe be focused on the up again down stock market or Europe about to implode.
It would have pretty weak to play the race card here like they have at every turn smearing Tea Party candidates or supporters, and likewise, if you disagree with Obama’s policies, you’re a racist, but since Cain’s supporters love the man because of his ideas and character and his bootstrap success despite being a black man whose father worked 3 jobs until he could make it on 2 job,and eventually pulled his family solidly into the middle class, the race card is a non-starter here, that just won’t fly. So sexual harassment is the next best thing.
Is Cain handling this poorly? Maybe a little, but he’s no John Edwards or Anthony Weiner and just isn’t schooled in the muck of politics. Apparently Herman Cain’s campaign has received a boost in cash donations and that’s good. Now he can go hire some more staff (hopefully some more seasoned political advisers) to suss these things out ahead of time and teach him how to wrap them up quickly.Of course when if you get someone too fancy-dancy, they’ll kill the real appeal Cain has -that he is not an insider politician.
One thing you can bet, the longer Cain stays in front or gives Romney any kind of a run, the more of this we’ll be seeing.
