Allegations of Sexual Harassment

Here is my take on it, as posted in a comment on a liberal friend's journal who acknowledged the harassment claims (and she made a comment about him lying about it or just not noticing that he got sued):

For the record, Herman Cain did NOT get sued so it wasn't an instance of not noticing he got sued. And just because these women made claims of sexual harassment does not mean that sexual harassment actually occurred. We all know that something as simple as opening a door for a woman can be offensive to those crazy feminist types--how do you know it wasn't something like that?

It even said in the Politco article that the gestures were “not overtly sexual but that made women who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable.”

WTF does that even mean?? This story is absolutely ridiculous. The women have not been named, the claims have not been detailed, and the left-wing media is having a FIELD day with this whole thing. It's a NON-STORY and it's ridiculous that it's getting this much attention.

But you know why that is, right? Because he is the current conservative front-runner and he's gaining steam like nobody's business. And the liberal media can't let that happen, oh no!! So they're going apeshit crazy trying to find something, anything, to attempt to tear this guy down. It is absolutely DISGUSTING and it is an insult to the profession of Journalism.

And no, I don't think it will have a significant effect on Cain's campaign or supporters because WE are not blinded and we realize how utterly ridiculous this whole situation is.

What do you guys think? Has this swayed your support for Herman Cain?

Dude, of course this hasn't swayed me. Herman Cain is clean, articulate, and he knows his place! He's a safe negro :D

//Facetious post is facetious.

I liked your reminder of what constitutes as sexual harassment anymore. Such an awesome point.

And on a side note, I accidentally posted that in an art community post that was right below your entry, so I've just made an ass of myself on an art commissions community XD Luckily I deleted it but I'm sure the OP saw it so I apologized for that.

Not me.

I think they are digging up and throwing what they can at him now that he has surged into the lead. And vague stories about sexual harassment make good headlines that can sink someone, even as innocuous as this incident seems. As Rush has said, the Democrats and Libs can't let a black (or Hispanic) conservative do well, they think they control these voting groups by making them dependent on liberal policies, and Cain proves all of these policies wrong.

I am not sure his campaign has handled this as well as they could have and that's going to hurt some (slow to respond and be ready even though they knew about it) However, I do think Herman can rise out of this if he doesn't let this get him off message much longer and people realize that this is the media driving this, not something he's trying to cover up nor is it a character flaw.

It's really said that the whole sexual harassment charge has turned into a sham for many cases. It really hurts those who have real cases to contend with.
