It almost worked to get rid of Clarence Thomas when he was nominated for Supreme Court.
Herman Cain predicted it: Lefties are going to try it again on him, not having been able to find evidence of actual unsavory behavior.
They dug up a couple of women who claimed that words or gestures of Herman Cain made them feel uncomfortable and accused him of sexual harassment.
It appears that Herman Cain was not capable of gross sexual imposition, unwanted advances, rape, a Kennedy/waitress/Dodd sandwich, impregnating his mistress while the spouse was being treated for cancer, driving his girlfriend off of a bridge and drowning her, paying for an abortion for his mistress, etc.
This is too wimpy. Cain is not disgusting enough to be president!!
The current RNC is likely to go along with the Dems on this, because they need Romney to be their candidate. That way they can maintain their current position in Washington DC. They’ve been bent over so long, it would hurt to straighten up.
“But wouldn’t liberals and Democrats still find a racially-based way to attack Cain? They certainly found a way to attack Clarence Thomas, the black, conservative Supreme Court justice.”
“They’re going to come after me more viciously than they would a white candidate,” Cain responded. “You’re right. Clarence Thomas. And so, to use Clarence Thomas as an example, I’m ready for the same high-tech lynching that he went through — for the good of this country.” Cain smiled broadly. “I’m ready for the same high-tech lynching.”
Update from Washington Examiner: The gesture that got Herman Cain in trouble with an employee is described in an interview with Greta Van Susteren, to be aired at a future date.
“She was in my office one day, and I made a gesture saying — and I was standing close to her — and I made a gesture saying you are the same height as my wife. And I brought my hand up to my chin saying, ‘My wife comes up to my chin.'” At that point, Cain gestured with his flattened palm near his chin. “And that was put in there [the complaint] as something that made her uncomfortable,” Cain said, “something that was in the sexual harassment charge.”
Van Susteren asked whether the woman complained at the time. “I can’t recall any comment that she made, positive or negative.”
