    Of course, to be expected.
    The libs will do anything to discredit a conservative candidate, watch the Rino's jump in to help.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    But do you believe it or consider it more likely true than not? Fifty cents says you do.

    From what I've read my take is this.

    Two women got together some years ago and decided to claim their boss sexually harrassed them. The company gave them some money and told them to go away. Settling is sometimes easier then fighting it out in court. The women signed agreements they would not speak of this matter again.

    Fast forward 20 years, Cain is a rising political star, and these two women realize they can get in on the pay again, and go to the media.

    I believe Cain when he says he didn't do this.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    The Politico article is extremely vague. It cites claims of "inappropriate comments" and "advances" but doesn't quote the allegations. Also, the positive quotes about Cain's tenure at the organization are buried at the end of the article. It may turn out to be more, but I strongly suspect that if there were more, then the article would have gone into detail about the allegations, rather than simply running nebulous innuendos.

    WILLIE GEIST: Hey Jonathan, what are the allegations specifically as you understand them? There's obviously a wide range in sexual harassment. What did he do?

    JONATHAN MARTIN: We-, we-, well we have to be careful about that obviously, because we're sensitive to --

    GEIST: Of course --

    MARTIN: -- the sourcing involved here. And also, what actually happened to these women as well--we want to be sensitive to that, too. It includes both verbal and physical gestures. These women felt uncomfortable, they were unhappy about their treatment, and they complained to both colleagues and senior officials. In one case it involved, I think, inviting a woman up to a hotel room of Cain's on the road. Um, but, we-, we-, we're just not going to get into the details of exactly what happened with these women beside what's in the story.

    Dodgy only begins to describe this...IMHO Justice Thomas knows exactly how Mr. Cain feels right about now.

    Any body remember Clarence Thomas' SCOTUS confirmation hearings?

    As an aside, I was charged with "sexual harassment" once. I was talking with a software vendor when my desk phone rang. I asked an assistant, a female, to picked it up and see who it was. She filed a sex harassment claim against me for treating her like a "secretary". DUH!

    My definition of sexual harrassment is pretty specific:

    1. Did it involve touching your body? That's an automatic.
    2. Was your job on the line if you refused to go along with dirty language or speech, or proposed activities?
    3. Were sexual comments used to humiliate you in a professional setting?

    In other words, if a male boss tells me "You look nice today", it is not sexual harrassment. If he tells me I look "hot", it's pushing the limits (unless he's gay, or someone I know really well). If he tells me "You look hot, meet me at the Motel 6 after work if you want to keep your job", it's time for me to call a lawyer.

    That is not the corporate definition of sexual harassment these days. Once my boss warned me that I could be accused of sexual harassment by a female co-worker. Astounded, I said, "She knows I am gay and so do you." The boss said it didn't matter. What duh fuh? I thought sexual harassment was a term with a meaning, it isn't.

    Years ago, a columnist for the St Pete Times wrote an article about what was then a storm of sexual harassment allegations. He said that the current rules and laws amount to driving down a residential street where each homeowner gets to decide the speed limit in front of his house.
