To all the Herman Cain supporters that are going to attack yet again, I would remind you of Cain’s first responses to these allegations. It is sad that many in the electorate would rather not use their instincts and common sense to judge the candidate’s own beginning statements. He first denied knowing anything about this and denied it ever took place. Then he said he could not remember. Then he could remember but still vehemently denied all accusations and in some cases still claims he did not know these women.
Are people so desperate to find a new, smooth talking, lying politician that they would throw all common sense out of the window with just one suggestion that this was all a left-wing conspiracy? The tea party movement definitely got hijacked for good as the left-right paradyme seems to be still working just as good as it always has amongst many that would rather support Herman Cain and smear venomously his accusers rather than look for the truth.
As a woman, it is very sad indeed that victims are still being repeatedly victimized in America on behalf of the latest, popular politician. What a horrible realization all women have to face. Every time something like this happens, it diminishes women from reporting assault, rape or sexual harassment for years to come.
Instead of digging into the details of why these women left the restaurant association, why not try to dig into why Herman Cain left this high position? In his lovely wife’s defense, with strict confidentiality agreements that were in place, I doubt this poor woman ever knew anything about all of this. I feel sorry for her but mostly I feel sorry for a woman like Karen Kraushaar, a married lady of 26 years. She is a Republican and did not ever want her privacy invaded like this. A professional woman, a spokeswoman working within the US Treasury department who kept her silence for 12 years and abided by the confidentiality agreement. Contrary to all the smears on her, the second complaint had absolutely nothing to do with sexual harassment and was 3 years later after suffering a serious car accident. If you want to rip her to shreads for a politician you know very little about, it is indeed a desperate time in America and women still have a long way to go in being treated with dignity right here in our own country.
When Herman Cain first came on the scene as supposedly only being the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, I warned repeatedly that this man was deceptive for not revealing that he was also the former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. He was no outsider and not genuine for trying to hide his other professional titles.
Let him go off into the sunset and let us get back to the race for the Republican nomination.
