Lawyer for Cain accuser in touch with National Restaurant Association

(CNN) - An attorney representing a woman who accused Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment has been in touch with the National Restaurant Association, the group said Wednesday.

"Attorney Joel Bennett contacted the National Restaurant Association this morning. An Association representative promptly returned his call and asked Mr. Bennett to contact the Association's outside counsel. Mr. Bennett indicated that he would do so tomorrow, after he met with his client," said Sue Hensley, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs Communications for the National Restaurant Association.

    Ok, and??? Are they going to let her speak out or not? I know there is alot more to this story than what Herman is suggesting.

    It seems that the association's representative, in the form of one Herman Cain, may have broken their end of the silence agreement to not discuss the matter in public.

    Mr. Cain is in troub-buuuuuul. I would hate to be the guy that would have to clean his shoes. Cain just keeps stepping into more trouble than you can keep up with. Well, the Cain fan club, Herman's Hermits, can start packing it in and requesting refunds on their campaign donations.

    Speaking of donations. Isn't there some issues with improper donations from a non-profit company headed by the campaign manageer, Block?

    The truth will soon come out and set Herb free. Free from running for office. As a democrat, I hate to see Herb's one man circus comedy show come to an end.

    Obviously, no one told Herman Cain that when he runs for political office all of his closets would be searched!

    Cain...... another GOP/Tea flop!

    As if this nitwit ever had a chance. This is just how they are getting rid of him without making their bigotry too obvious. What a loudmouth moron. Did you really think Rush-The-Drug-Addict and his ilk was going to accept a Black man as the republican nominee? I told you this guy was deluded.

    the media is out to lynch Cain only because he's a Republican! Look what the black man in the White House has done. Flushed the country down the toilet!

    "A Republican consultant in Oklahoma who has conducted polling for a Super PAC supporting Rick Perry claims that he personally witnessed Herman Cain harass one of his accusers. And — from what he saw at least — the case is no joke. "

    Yep..."liberal media conspiracy" alright.

  17. The Greedy Old Pigs have lost their minds!

    It's pretty funny how the extreme righties here keep acting as if "the libs" are the ones behind Mr. KochCain's downfall. Here's a clue: we'd love for him to stay in the race. Too bad your leaders of the GOBP neocon deathcult are more interested in paving the way for your sleazy used car saleman, er, Mitt the Flipwit, to win the nomination.
