    this is drama and lies created by politicians and media that would not know a good man if he saved them from drowning.

    There is no way in our society that anyone can be held acountable for lack of integrity who is in politicsl Four! women and still fox news and others present this as crazy women and no basis to Cain's transgressions. FOUR WOMEN WITH ONE ACTUALLY TELLING HER STORY ON TV. I am ashamed of folks including christians who hold no basis for this and blame the women. Just like when Clinton was president, remember! who will lead us with courage, conviction, and morals?

    Experience has taught me that dishonest uncouth people will distort the truth of any given subject and/or utter blatant lies to achieve any given goal. This expressed, the fourth allegation against Hernan Cain is simply too graffic etc. to be taken as anything more than a fabrication designed to "destroy". .And, as to being Cain's fourh accusor.....well....' like minded people do tend to jump on the "band wagon" do copycat killers. My opinion.

    High-tech lynching? Yup. There are a lot of people in both parties scared to death of Herman Cain, and they will stop at nothing to eliminate him.

    Part of me is thinking Romney could have something to do with the drama – he has been very quiet and there is plenty to gain from this! It doesn't necessarily have to be the left media although they are being dirty as always.
    Fight Mr. Cain, fight!!!

    this woman says she is a registered Republican, there is a conservative talk show host that claims Cain harrassed two of his employess, there is a Republican that says he witness Cain in action one time and STILL you have the tone deaf saying that this attack has come from the left and Democrats. I guess some people just can't handle the truth.

    rajeev G – not sure how you can know he's guilty at this stage. Obviously you haven't a clue to what coordinated deceptions the liberals are capable of. Remember, in their world, the "ends justifies the means" and Cain is someone they fear.

    How gullible are you people? Can't you see you are being manipulated by the MSM to serve THEIR pupose(s), not yours!
    I have to believe, by law these accusations are just that, ACCUSATIONS, period. No way to PROVE or DIS-PROVE any of it! Move along folks. Nothing to see here!!!

    Herman Cain has enemies on both the Democrat and establishment Republican sides. His detractors have little to fear from the system because of this. Neither political party, that is in power, nor the media will seek justice if he is falsely accused.

    We have a lot of nuts and dishonest people in this country. This woman (look at her background) seems to fit the description. Why does she need an attorney, particularly one who is only interested in money and fame (not to mention Democrat association) like Gloria Alred? Isn't that selection a move away from sincerity and honesty in favor of showmanship?

    If Herman is innocent I hope he fights as strongly as possible. Character defamation is no way to chose our country's leaders.

    If you want to vote for a leader with courage, conviction, and (yes), morals... with no skeletons remaining in his closet, vote for Newt Gingrich! He is the only one with the courage to stand against obama's machine. The constitution is his conviction. As for morals, those of you without sin on your soul, feel free to throw your stones. How long will you allow a democrat "hit job" keep a good man down? I challenge you to name one diservice he did to this Nation.

    Why do the posts that say ithe allegations 'must' be true forget about the harrasser in chief Bill Clinton? Many women came out with names, places and details in their claims against Clinton. Juanita Broadderick accused Clinton of rape, naming the date, time, and hotel room. Paula Jones accused him of pulling down his pants and saying "kiss it". Clinton was convicted of lying under oath and lost his license tp practice law. Yet the massively hypocritical press protected Clinton with minimal coverage and attacked the women.

    The allegations against Cain pale in comparison with the ones against Clinton. But for Clinton we ignore them, and for Cain we crucify him in the press even before any facts were known.

    Do all of you who condemn Cain at this point also condemn Clinton as a rapist? Somehow I suspect not. Politics trumps facts, and impartiality is nonexistent.

    Screw the unions

    Herman I am with you. Don't let the left punch you... Punch them back and defend yourself.

    hey moron. I hope you never need a nurse, cop, or firefighter. Since you want to "screw the unions" good luck if you're ever in trouble. I won't shed a tear. As for Herm. It doesn't matter whether he did it or not. His handling of it proves he's unqualified for the job

    Bialek, reads from a card her accusations, smiling before cameras, what she describes is it even physically possible? Then she who has been sexually assaulted, ASKS him to drive her back to her hotel? (boy that tells you right there her lack of morals and ethics) After the stilted card read accusation, she giggles and talks about her new hairdo? (all about her.) That was one of the weirdest accusations that i have ever witness. My 'gut feeling' tells me that she is lying. Both Allred and the previous attorney for the other two last week high powered DC Attorney Joel Bennett are not doing this out of the kindness of their hearts, someone is bankrolling them or paying them with monetary promises, period. Follow the money. This whole story stinks to high heaven of a Progressive Liberal Democrat character assassination.

    This is bogus. This woman is from Chicago, known for dirty politics. She hooks up with Gloria Allred, known for her left leanings and questionable character. Finally, she ambushed him in Chicago at a political gathering saying "she didn't know he would be there" and hugged him. What a set up! This is the most transparent and disgusting railroad job I have ever seen!!!!!

    Cain is suffering a typical hit job from the democrats like the one they used on Newt Gingrich with every intention of forcing him out of office. Cain is not my first choice, regardless!

    Has anyone noticed since Cain began to surge in the polls all these women suddenly surfaced? How come accuser #4 didn't file a sexual harassment suit with the NRA?

    Cain is innocent until PROVEN guilty. All we have is hearsay. I question this latest woman. It's blatant racism! A blond, white woman? Also, if he had his hand up her skirt, how can he also pull her head to his crotch? She said that when she said stop he did. So, I wonder, did she want his hand up her skirt and only said stop when he reached for her head? Something isn't right...

    There is no proof and she worked for cbs and other liberal radio networks. She has filed bancruptcy twice and is a marketing professional, sounds fishy

    If this woman is telling the truth, is she willing to tell her story again, while hooked to a polygraph machine?

    Go get em Herman. Hook her up to a polygraph ... and if it's known expose all the dirt on the scumbags trying to take you down. The more the left and worthless Democrats pile on, the more I like Cain.

    Another attempt to bring down a self made African America, that is not on the Liberal Plantation. This latest attempt is disgusting. Why would she ask Herman Cain for a job at the National Restaraunt Ass. When she was already let go from there? I wonder how much Obama payed her and Gloria AllRED to do this? Heaven forbid a self made African American make it to the White House without any help from welfare or affirmative action. Also HEAVEN forbid should Obama have to debate him!!! This in dirty politics and I smell Obama behind it.
