The Real Herman Cain
November 8, 2011

Standing Up Against The Storm

What’s a woman to think?  Herman Cain has been NOTHING but professional, a gentleman, articulate, and effective on the national stage.  His appearance is impeccable and he has always been proud of his Baptist faith.  He has a 43-year marriage to a beautiful woman, and a distinguished career.

In this mess, this media frenzy, this Democratic Party-engineered attack on his private life, Herman Cain has got to be either the most mistreated political candidate ever, or a most convincing and compartmentalizing liar.

She Said...He Did.finally confronting the unbelievable charges made against him, Cain was resolute. He maintained that he has never sexually harassed anyone and that the distasteful charges reported "simply never happened." Then, Cain prepared his supporters to expect even MORE attacks:

Cain was impressive and believable in his press conference yesterday.  One lingering question though.  Why didn’t Herman Cain simply take Karl Rove’s advice wisely offered on Bill O’Reilly’s show last evening?  Rove suggested that  Herman Cain demand all documents pertaining to the sexual harassment charges be released by the National Restaurant Association, putting an end to the speculation.  For some reason, Herman Cain told reporters that he would be willing to take a lie detector test if there was reason to do so, but he did NOT ask the NRA to release the complaints filed against him.

Late yesterday, one of the women involved in the original complaints also agreed to come forward.  Karen Kraushaar claims she is now willing to hold a joint news conference with other supposed victims of Cain’s harassment.  Kraushaar, a spokesperson for the General Offices of the Treasury Department and technically a member of the Obama administration, came forward today, identified herself, and stood by her charges as well.

“She is a professional who had to leave her job because of Herman Cain. It is quite simple,” a former National Restaurant Association employee told the Daily News.

Kraushaar‘s lawyer, Joel Bennett, acknowledged that she was one of the two women who received a financial settlement of about $45,000 after accusing Cain of sexual harassment in the 1990s.

Kraushaar told the New York Times she hoped she and the other accusers might hold a joint press conference “where all of the women would be together with our attorneys and all of this evidence would be considered together.”

“These allegations can be considered together as a body of evidence.”  she said.

Cain said Kraushaar’s allegations were the only ones he remembered, and that the National Restaurant Association had found the allegations were not credible.

“When she made her accusations, they were found to be baseless and she could not find anyone to corroborate her.”

The internal investigation of Kraushaar’s accusations was however supervised by Herman Cain.

Kraushaar has been in the public eye before during the dramatic negotiations and contentious custody battle for Elian Gonzalez.
