    I have reasonable doubt that there is anything to this other than a women that wants her time in the spotlight. This too will pass. Cain can and will overcome this as well. I wouldnt put it past the Obama machine to keep dragging this up for the next year. If you can't beat them with facts...slime them with half truths.

    Time for Herman's camp to go on the offensive...get facts to destroy this bimbo and the horse she rode in on. Connect the dots that lead to obummer like the fact David Axelrod was her attorney in a couple of her lawsuits to sue various people. Her story was so complete with details from 15 years ago that there is no way it's true, not to mention telling her boyfriend but not telling details to him or calling the NRA or filing suit etc etc. The media needs to be punished for this crap. When Herman becomes pres. I hope the left wing media lynch mob gets theirs!

    T'Sha – "Cain is going to deny all of it and he is going to further blame the victims. If two women were paid off and a third is remaining silent – and now there is a 4th woman and possibly more – then, it is true. Even if ONE of the stories were true – it's true!!!"

    It is only true if it is true. You are begging the question! "Cain is going to deny it" because he's guilty? So if he denies it he's guilty...but if he admits it he is innocent??? His denial will not convict him! If one of the accusations is true, then he is guilty of the one that is true. If any of the accusations are true he should do the honorable thing: apologize and step down–something Bill Clinton did not do. But I do hold our candidates to a higher standard. However, I prefer to hold judgement until all of the facts come in. At this point it is "he said/she said" and you pick who you are going to believe. The other women have been given the permission by the NRA to break silence and tell their stories yet they refuse. So until they do, we will never know for certain. But do not convict the man until all of the evidence is in. Is she telling the truth? I don't know. The only people who really know are this woman and Cain.

    Todd, Are you serious about the fifth woman in the Newsmax aritcle? That one isn't even on the same playing field! She admits nothing sexual was said, or happened. She was just suspicious of his intentions. This is a case of reading intentions into the past based on present events. The Newsmax story doesn't gain traction at all.

    I'M VOTING FOR CAIN. He is the man this country needs right now. The DEMS have laid out another well planned battle plan and have taken many casualties in the form of weak minded people. Isn't it so convenient that a fictitious story is brought out every day and is a little more shocking every day. So how do you know it's the truth? Because it's on the news every day, that makes it the truth? YOU ARE BEING LIED TO. It is a shame you people can't see past this liberal media driven campaign to bring down the best man running for this election. The media will not stop at anything in programming you how to think. And the worst part is that most of you Cain doubter folks, don't even know your being programmed how to think and feel about a man who has the will and capacity to turn this county around and make it the county we can feel proud about again.

    The PRESS has lynched him, including CNN. Sad to see the involvement of the Liberal Media in politics. Pretty much like the Birth Certificate stuff the righties did on Obama.

    Not that I want a return to the Clinton era, but what more is Mr. Cain guilty of (if guilty at all) than what we knew about Bill Clinton prior to his election? Herman Cain's biggest offense is that he is running as a Republican and not as a Democrat!

    Cain would be a horrible President!! Get over the sexual allegations and look at his actual plan. He wants to tax the crap out of us. He is the brother from another mother of the 4th wealthiest Americans. He is unaware of anything foreign policy. He can't even handle himself when journalist keep asking questions... how would he handle something that is a real issue? Like war or an economic collapse. Oh wait, he denied the economy was collapsing in 2008. Yes, for you Mr. Cain I am sure you are plenty wealthy and it did not really bother you.

    If you really are not going to let the media how to vote try looking at the candidate and realize he can't answer any real question concerning policy. Repeating 9-9-9 can only take you so far...

    Why didn't she come out and tell the story when he ran for the senste in 2004. It's just another bimbo that the liberal, Gloria Allred, who wouldn't help any of the women that everyone knows that Slick Willy molested when they asked her to. Allred said she liked it when she went through airport security and they touched some of her private parts. She said "it was the first time any body had touched her in a long time." I wonder why. I say again, who cares what someone did or didn't do 15 years ago! look what we have in the white house now, a liar, a cheater, a terrorist lover, someone that no one knows anything about his past, about remembering him in college, can't prove where he was born, and I could go om and on. This country is on the brink of destruction! Our very way of life is at stake. It's NOW that matters, And we need Herman Cain to rescue this nation.

    I'm sorry. You go to dinner alone with a man to find out how to get a job? NOT. I agree with Drew. Bring out the polygraph machine. She is looking for 15 minutes of fame. She says she is not trying to get anything out of this. Really? Looks like you got a lot of TV time. Still looking for a job? Boo Hiss.

    Really?!? 14 years, no facts, no lawsuit, a report 5 MILLION dollars from "somewhere" going into an off shore account, her fb page is taken down for damage control, she is laughing while she "recounts" something that should have been traumatic, she works for CBS and Alred is her lawyer. Mr. Cain, my money and my vote is yours. Soros owns OWS, Obama AND Romney. He does not own We The People!

    Cain is innocent on all these allegations. This woman was FIRED from the NRA because she FALSELY accused her bos of sexual harrassment. And co-workers claim when she didn't get her way, she would scram sexual harrassment. And how does she explain attending a conference just a couple weeks ago for which Herman Cain was there and she was seen talking with Herman, putting her hands around his shoulders, laughing and having a nice time. This woman is clearly trying to get publicity and money from creating a scandal.
    Also, the post that mentioned the two woman from a radio show who said Herman sexual harrassed them – the truth of the story is Herman asked the woman to doctor his tea/coffee – meaning add sugar and cream to the tea.
    This is a SMEAR campaign against Herman Caine from the Liberal Left Democrats! and its Disgusting how low they will go to ruin a Conservatives reputation/life just because he is leading in the polls.

    The Democrats are at it again just like with Justice Thomas. Juan Williams, not the most conservative man out there, admits that Democrats called him and asked for help creating a scandal about Justice Thomas. Democrats realize that Cain can beat Obama, but that Romney might not be able to. That is why they made this scandal up. They do not have one piece of credible evidence, and this won't stop Herman Cain. It certainly didn't stop Justice Thomas.

    Why are all you supporters now forgetting about the other women who were paid off for their allegations? Did Cain ever come out and give his side of the story? Also, this is not a smear campaign by the Democrats/Obama as we would love for Cain to go up against our President. There is a stark difference and Obama would win in a landslide!

  16. once upon a horse

    I really do hope that Cain can puill through this and get the Republican nomination and go up against Obama in 2012. Just look at the polling and you'll see why no Dem in his or her right mind would want to do this to Cain.

    Cain has had it and that is a good thing.
    His denials just show the utter arrogance of this man.
    Deny deny deny is the avenue he is taking.
    More woman will come forward and this will get messy.
    Oh, the race card is going to show its UGLY face vert soon !!

  18. unbelievable

    This woman is a liar. Herman Cain is innocent on all allegations. The NRA fired this woman because she FALSELY accused her boss of sexual harrassement. Co-workers that were interviewed say that when she didn't get her way she would cry sexual harrassement. And why was she at a convention just last month for which Herman Cain was attending and she was seen HUGGING Herman Cain and laughing and smiling with him. She is trying to get publicity and money from this scandal.
    Also, the other woman who worked at the radio station and say they felt sexually harrassed from Herman Cain, the truth on that is Herman asked if she would 'doctor' his tea/coffee. He was asking them to add sugar and cream to his tea!
    This is a SMEAR Campaign by the liberal left democrats and its just unbelievable how low they will go to ruin someones life/reputation! All of this is result of Herman Cain – a conservative black man – leading in the polls. They want to destroy him! This is VERY WRONG and I hope this woman is exposed for the liar she is and I hope Herman Cain presses charges against her for SLANDER!

    Aside from the obvious facts of 15 years too late, "You know I have boyfriend" meant she had entertained the idea, no sexual harassment or assault. No judgments made until this woman takes a polygraph. In an industry inundated with homosexuals/bisexuals, rampant sexual harassment and bearing false witness are commonplace within the hotel/restaurant industry. If these allegations have any basis in fact after she takes a polygraph, then it is character issues that need to be addressed as I am sure all of us are welll aware of the behavior of former President Clinton and former Speaker of the House Gingrich. This will be resolved by the conservative base of the Republican Party without the liberal wings of the republican and Democrat Party attempting to control the narrative.

    FYI – this is not a left wing smear job / lynching. how do I know? Beacause we all want you guys to nominate him. We would much rather face Cain than Romney. Cain himself blames his current opponents. And what does her choice of lawyer have to do with whether or not she is telling the truth? wierd how you guys ae fixated on that.

    " I know he did what he had been accused to do by these women. These women cannot make it all up. It shows a pattern on his part."

    Unless you were there, you know nothing. Because a handful of people say something, it must be true? i can find a handful of people who say the holocaust never happened. That must be true as well, huh?

    It's interesting that the national media gave Obama got a complete pass on all his legally hidden history, yet the only subject the media cares to follow now is Cain unsubstantiated sexual harassment.

    All of these accusers need to "testify" in front of High Speed Cameras that record the facial expressions exhibited when someone lies-these cannot be hidden, and they are more accurate than a polygraph-and there are also brain scan types of processes that show the brain activity in certain areas of the brain when someone lies. These all happen in microseconds, and cannot be observed by the human eye. First the Accusers take the test, and then, if need be, the Accused.............OTHERWISE, is is all Huff and Puff Politics

    If he were a Democrat, or an Italian Prime Minister, this wouldn't be an issue.

    We will never know anything related to the truth here. The media has blown the whole journalistic ethics thing long ago and here we have the ongoing after-effects.
