The Cain Stuff: 3 “Sex Harassment” Complaints in 4 Decades is Nothin’

By Debbie Schlussel

As you know from my post about it and the absence of new posts on my site for most of this week (despite my plan to post lots of stuff before and after the trial each day), I’ve been in trial in a hearing defending my client, a Christian teacher in the Dearborn Public Schools, pro bono (if you wish to donate to our cause, please click the Paypal button on the upper left-hand side of this site).  Sunday Night, the night before the trial began, the allegations of sexual harassment complaints against Herman Cain broke, and I figured they’d be old news by the time I had time to write about it.  And they would be . . . if Herman Cain had a big “D” after his name.  But since he’s a conservative and not John Edwards, Bill Clinton, or Barack Obama, it’s not only still in the news, but this piddling story has “grown.”  And for no legitimate reason.

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Cain for his flip-flops on Islam or his visit to the Al-Qaeda mosque around Ramadan.  But this story makes me like him a lot more.  I feel for him (plus I loved his charming interview in the latest issue of People).  It’s interesting that liberal racists–the ones who smugly tell us we’re the racists–always use the racist sexual stereotype about Black men against Black conservatives.  And they’re never called on it.

As an attorney, I think the fact that this man, who spent 40 years in business, including in CEO positions of major companies, has only had three sexual harassment complaints against him is remarkable.  It’s a very low number–less than one per decade.  Many CEOs have far more such complaints filed against them by gold-digging, easy payday-seeking employees.  You just don’t hear about them because they are usually settled as nuisance cases and paid off, rather than fighting long, intrusive court battles.  Frankly, the $35,000 and $45,000 Cain/National Restaurant Association settlement figures we are now hearing about aren’t that high, contrary what some liberal “legal analysts” are saying on TV.  They aren’t “lowest” settlements, but they are definitely on the lower end of the scale.

That Herman Cain got details of the stories wrong is being made into some sort of evidence that he’s lying.  But typically, businessmen of his level aren’t involved in negotiating settlements and getting these women to go away.  And if Cain was a serial sexual harasser, why are all the accusations from his tenure at the National Restaurant Association?  Surely, there would have been instances at Coca Cola and Pillsbury and Godfather’s Pizza.  People don’t become gropers or harassers in their late 40s or early 50s.  Not only doesn’t a leopard change his spots, but he doesn’t just suddenly get the spots when he’s 60-something.

If the women who settled with Herman Cain thought he was such a bad guy who should pay, they would have either sought their day in court–where the record would be public and other women would be forewarned–or sought more money.  It’s interesting how they were easily and quickly bought off and went on their merry ways.  It’s the equivalent of being a prostitute without having to perform the sex acts.  It’s also interesting that these women now want to be released from the confidentiality portions of their agreements . . . and it’s clearly political.  Otherwise, why do this only now, when he’s running for President?

Still, I think we should know the women’s names.  The media clearly does, since the women and their professions and locales have been described in quite some detail.  Why is it that the rape accuser is always shielded and the alleged perpetrator–who may be the real victim–never is?  If women are accusing a Presidential candidate of sexual harassment, we deserve to know who they are . . . and why they took the money and ran.  If you’re that easily paid off, it was probably nothing.  And these women are cowards hiding in the shadows in their whispers campaign, regardless of the desperate Perry campaign’s involvement in the whole mess.  If they do come out of the woodwork, do ya think they’ll get the treatment Paula Jones and Linda Tripp got?  Dream on.  They’ll be sainted like Anita Hill, who, after all these years after her non-credible pubic-haired Coke can (who says that?!) claim, is still gushed over.

I’m more concerned with the fact that Barack Obama never really registered for the draft and that his Selective Service form on file with the government is a forgery and a fraud.  But try getting the media to touch that one.

Remember, there’s a “D” after his name.

Debbie, have you seen that new commercial for TLC’s upcoming program “American Muslim?” A muslima tells a concerned passenger on an airplane to get her ass off the plane because she’s on her way to a meeting to educate people like her. I can’t wait to see how the media spins this BS.

Gregg Jackson summarizes why he (as a Christian) will NOT vote for Flip McFloppney if and when (more likely) will be the GOP nominee. His reasons are straight up and he tells it like it is with no fear.

As someone who has a lot of enthusiasm for Conservatism, I am very annoyed how many so-called Conservatives are so complacent about the impending crowning of Mitt Romney as the inevitable nominee (and one can also say eventual LOSER of the race in 2012 against Obama).

I have seen most conservatives sit back these last 3 to 4 years and just let others than themselves attempt to nominate Establishment chosen nominees. I have seen these same so-called Conservatives mock Liberals and their “lemming” like ways only to fall for the same horsesh** on the GOP side. If you doubt me take a look at what HA has devolved into. It is very disappointing.

And look at what the GOP heavy house has done lately. A big NOTHING. If you stupidly think like a HA lemming and think “OOOOOOhhh, oooooh, they are trying. They need to win more seats. When they win the Senate that’s when they’ll start making a change” you are NOT getting it.

Where was MSM when Al Sharpton’s National Action Network got sued and lost $60,000?

Here’s my last comment on this topic:

Here is what we actually know, two women were paid money in a sexual harassment case against Cain. They do not want to talk about it publicly. A third woman has also made accusations about Cain trying to get her into his apartment. This information was produced by the Leftist outfit Politico who obviously have a Leftist agenda.

When confronted with this information Cain stammers around, changes his story, can’t remember things, and so on.

Because of all this nearly every conservative I know and whose opinions I respect have concluded that nothing happened or its no big deal.

Using the same information and examining Cain’s reactions, I have reached a different opinion. I have lived a long time (I’m 5 yrs older than the Debster), I have worked in law enforcement for many years, and have seen countless he-said she-said cases.

Based on my experience and observations of human behavior, I happen to believe sexual harassment did take place. That’s my opinion.

I still respect everyones opinion. And no, I’m not a Romney fan either.

    Claire, you are putting your feminist instinct in front of your deductive reasoning. That is foolish. You keep looking at the shiny objects and NOT the facts.

    Again, I will repeat. The women will not even come forth with their IDENTITIES. And after a week, we still don’t have concrete facts on amorphous “harassment” that wasn’t even overtly sexual.

    Then add how hard the Liberals play to win. But you still wanna take the females side. As someone who was prolly a more militant feminist in the past than you have been, I think that is very sad and makes me regret feminist horsecrap even more. Very poisonous and dangerous. I clearly see that now. Sad.

Are you kidding me?
Clinton was impeached for getting a blow job and Edwards is being prosecuted. How are Dems getting away with anything?

What a stupid post

    Piss off DJ. I have bigger fish to fry. Get lost.

    Here is a VERY interesting link on a cover-up of HUGE proportions. And if you think there is nothing to all that ZerObama has to hide, THINK AGAIN. DS has even uncovered his forged SS Papers. More people should know that.

    http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/11/the_case_against_barack_obama_sr.html

    I have long believed (and it has been PROVEN as FACT) that Barack Obama did NOT write his TWO books. The first one was written by unrepentant domestic Bomber Bill Ayers…whose friendship with Zero has also been covered-up and the 2nd by a lowly staffer (most likely Jon Favreau).

    The author and who did the forensic research is Jack Cashill. All you need to know NOW is that he is still virtually unknown even after his explosive book on the subject (not to be confused with Corsey’s). Just because he gets NO TRACTION does not mean that he isn’t credible. In the advent of Obama, you must know by now that those who struggle for the notoriety
    they deserve when it comes to all things exposing Obama, that the truth is almost *ALWAYS* with those being shunned and buried by the press.

    Click on the article above. It takes the FARCE of Barack Obama Senior as the REAL father of BHO (or even more so, that his parents EVER married) to task. Fascinating.

    And you’ll see in the picture that BHO is the spitting image of his paternal GRANDFATHER and NOT Senior. I happen to think Frank Marshall Davis is the bio dad to BHO but that is still a work in progress and proof is not yet definitive.

A real sexual harassment case that goes to trial is 3 million dollars minimum. That they settled out of court for $35k and $45k linked in with their severance package from the company is a clear indication that they didn’t have anything strong enough for a real trial.

(A real case will have documentary evidence, by the way. If you are being sexually harassed, contact a lawyer and work with him on how to carry a recorder as well as carry a notepad at all times so you can immediately write down dates, times, and what was said and done. ‘Telling a friend’ is okay, but it’s not enough to make it real.)
