At the risk of flooding the zone with three post in a short time, I did want to open a thread on the sexual harassment allegations against Herman Cain. The claim is that he paid two women in response to harassment claims. I’ve found his response very believable and straight-forward: he claims he was falsely accused but his trade group settled without his knowledge.
We’ll see how this shakes out. I’d say I don’t believe someone would go to press with this unless they had the evidence, but I remember Dan Rather’s memos.
