Women generally don't go around accusing men of sexual harassment when there is none. There must have been enough "truth" to their story to make it plausible to render a five-figure settlement and make them go away.

Former Colorado State Senator Dave Schultheis:

Quote:
This definitely smacks of what took place when U.S. Supreme Court justice nominee, Clarence Thomas had allegations thrown at him during his nomination process. Members of the left, including the majority of the press think they own the black vote and to acknowledge that a black conservative is running for political office just doesn’t fit their plantation paradigm.

Really? I thought a plantation paradigm was the exclusive purview of a southern neo-conservative.

I wonder if Mr. Schultheis would be defending Mr. Cain if Mr. Cain were not a front-runner.

...a copy of a comment that association spokeswoman Sue Hensley released to the media Monday. “The incidents in question relate to personnel matters that allegedly took place nearly 15 years ago. Consistent with our long-standing policy, we don’t comment on personnel issues relating to current or former employees,” Hensley said in the statement.

Yet in comments Monday on the matter, Cain directed attention back to the association...

Mr. CEO doesn't know his former association's long-standing policies. Interesting. Hmm

Welp, The Koch Brothers are bankrolling Cain, eh. Perhaps David Koch is getting too soft funding PBS shows and his thinking is becoming too progressive: stereotypically GOP'ers would actually vote for a conservative black guy.

Let's see how that conservative site which I taunt feels about Cain:



...just as I thought: Cain doesn't stand a snow ball's chance in hell of getting the GOP nom - even if he were squeaky clean. The conservatives would rather have a sleazy philanderer than a black conservative by a 24:1 margin.

truth

whereas your statement is a speculation which is often times correct, still that is not factual

sexual harassment is a personality characteristic which i suspect is not a once in a lifetime eruption ... doug has now reported on more cases exhibiting a pattern of such behavior ...
but still it is hearsay
