The Front Runner

Well, I have to admit...Just a few months ago I didn't know (or care) much about Herman Cain... He was just a disillusioned Black Republican running for President in a pool of mediorce and bizzarre candidates...But over the past few months the old boy has surprised me....He is actually the front runner in this wacky Republican campaign...

If no one took him serious before....Somebody must certainly be taking him seriously now....because a decades old scandal has been dug up about him...That's a sure sign that you're being taken seriously...when they dig up dirt on you to try and smear you.

Well Brother Cain, welcome to the big leauges!

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain admitted Monday to being accused of sexual harassment while at the helm of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, but denied ever engaging in such activity.

Herman Cain decried a report that said the association had reached settlements with two women who lodged sexual harassment claims against him as part of a "witch hunt" associated with his recent surge in the polls.

"I have never sexually harassed anyone, and yes, I was falsely accused while I was at the National Restaurant Association," Cain said in an interview on Fox News, his first comments on the Politico story from Sunday. "I say falsely because it turned out, after the investigation, to be baseless."

Herman Cain sought to forcefully dispute the story, which says he had been accused of sexually suggestive behavior toward at least two female employees during his time as head of the restaurant lobby.

The report said the women signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them five-figure financial payouts to leave the association and barred them from discussing their departures. Neither woman was identified.

Herman Cain told Fox News that he recalled an allegation by one of the women. "I was standing close to her and I made a gesture ... and brought my hand, didn't touch her, up to my chin and said, 'You're the same height as my wife because my wife comes up to my chin.'' My wife of 43 years. And that was put in there as something that made her feel uncomfortable as part of the sexual harassment charge."

Herman Cain said that he had never personally settled any sexual harassment suit, and that if the NRA had settled any claims, it had done so without his knowledge.

"If the Restaurant Association did a settlement, I wasn't even aware of it, and I hope it wasn't for much because nothing happened," he explained on Fox. "So if there was a settlement, it was handled by some of the other officers that worked for me at the association." This sounds a bit suspicious I must admit....He had to know, especially if money was being paid out.

Herman Cain said, though, during an afternoon speech that he wouldn't ask the association to release further information, and that his campaign viewed the issue as closed.

"As far as we're concerned, enough's said about this issue," Cain said.

Herman Cain's campaign has launched an all-out effort Monday to dispute the story. Campaign manager and chief of staff Mark Block forcefully denied the Politico story on television this morning.

"Herman Cain has never sexually harassed anybody. Period. End of story," Block said on MSNBC's Daily Rundown.Sure of that ,Mr.Block?

The initial report was based on anonymous sources(Naturally, Aren't all of these kinds of things based on anonymous sources?) and, in one case, what Politico said was a review of documentation that described the allegations and the resolution.

NBC News has independently confirmed that one woman received a settlement from the NRA after complaining about inappropriate sexual conduct by Mr.Cain.

The former Godfather's Pizza CEO sidestepped a question about whether he suspected his competitors for the Republican presidential nomination of leaking the information.No, Of course not!

Like I said...Welcome to the big leauges!
