Cain has repeatedly denied he ever harassed anyone but has struggled to remain consistent on the details

What, a politician accused of sexual harrassment? What a shocker there. Especially about a fine upstanding citizen like herman cain. I can't believe that.

so... the woman strikes a settlement in the 90's and now that cain is famous she wants to go back on the deal for what I'm assuming is to sell her story? I'd honestly like to hear the real story of what happened. Until then who knows what happened. Cain obviously had something going on to have to settle this back in the 90's, but who knows what really happened. To me, if the woman made a settlement then she should stick to it.

I bet this leads to more women that Cain "harassed" coming out of the woodwork. Always seems to happen.

Personally I don't care what happened in the 90's. What does this have to do with whether or not he can run the country, fix the economy and lower unemployment?

If she wants to tell her story then she needs to A) pay back every cent she recieved plus interest, B) sign a contract that any money she earns from this (book deal, movie, interviews, etc) will all be donated to charity. If she really just wants to get her story out there then she will be OK with not getting paid for her story. If she wants to sell her story then she is nothing but a gold digger and she needs to abide by her agreement and go away.

Also, Bill Clinton sexually harrassed, and in some cases sexually assaulted, women and he served 2 terms as president and is one of the most loved Democratic presidents of all time. If his sexual misdeeds did not disqualify him from being president then neither do Cain's. Case closed.

Big difference. Clinton was never found guilty or settled any case of assault. As per the harassment claims, yeah, Clinton is on par with Cain, so as a Clinton fan (as a politician, not a person), I have to allow the same treatment for Cain.

He was never charged with sexually assaulting anyone but he exposed himself to women without their consent or desire for him to do so. If any of us did that we would be charged with sexual assault,...

Janita Broadrick or something like that accused him of assult during his campaign for gov.

I'm not arguing Clinton's harassment suits. Assault is WAAAAAAY different, and he never settled any assault suits, nor was he ever charged.

You are correct. I forgot about her. She actually accused him of rape if I am not mistaken.

Jeez!! I looked up the list of those who accused Clinton. I had no idea there was so many or how far it went back. he has a history of sexual assault/harrassment dating back to his college days!!

Paula Jones accused him for one.

I don't think this issue from the 90's really effects if cain can run the country. Of course most people like to hear a scandal so it will definitely be news. However, I think it just takes away from the real stuff that should be reported and talked about.

No. She didn't. She filed a sexual harassment suit. Harassment does not equal assault.

And my point is still valid. I'm not a defender of Clinton's sexual deviance at ALL. But he was never formally accused in court of sexual ASSAULT.

You know there are a lot of reasons why though. Bottom line as stated before, If it doesn't preclude him from serving, it shouldn't affect Cain.
