    “Cain said, ‘Darling, do you mind doctoring my tea for me?’”

    “Cain said, ‘Darling, do you mind doctoring my tea for me?’”

    It’s 8:10 a.m. Eastern, November 4, 2011, five days into the Herman Cain Scandal, and finally we have facts.

    Steve Deace, an anti-Cain Iowa talk show host, has made headlines which seem to corroborate that Herman Cain is a cad, as dutifully reported by ABC News, among others:

    A conservative Iowa radio host, who on Wednesday became the latest person to accuse Herman Cain of acting inappropriately toward women, declined to offer specifics about the presidential candidate’s behavior but suggested that Cain was “compromised in his private life.”

    Steve Deace, who hosts a syndicated two-hour radio program in Iowa, said that two of his female staff members were subjected to “inappropriate and awkward” comments by Cain. But he refused to identify them or elaborate on the seriousness of the allegations.

    While ABC News claims not to know the substance of the allegations, The Des Moines Register (h/t Charles, via Right Scoop) reports that Deace previously revealed at least one of the “awkward” statements on his radio show last month:

    During his Oct. 3 broadcast in Iowa, Deace mentioned that Cain made a comment to a woman who was there to report on the radio interview for another news agency.

    “Cain said, ‘Darling, do you mind doctoring my tea for me?’” Deace said.

    Deace told the Register last month that he believes Cain was talking about adding honey and lemon, but that it was an awkward moment.

    Shocking. Certainly a ground to ruin a presidential campaign, and enough for ABC News and, the all-Herman Cain, all-the-time Politico to run large headlines about it..

    There may be damning facts out there about Herman Cain.  And maybe we will actually hear the damning facts sooner or later.  But they’re not out there yet, as of 8:10 a.m. Eastern on November 4, 2011.

    DinoRightMarie said “November 1012: Anyone. But. Obama. …..and: NO third party!”

    Any “true” conservative who votes for Mitt Romney when he wins the GOP nomination for president is a hypocrite. Why? Because all we hear about is how the “ruling class”, the “establishment”, the “Beltway Boys”, etc. are ruining America. Voting for the candidate who is the “lesser than two evils” is a cop out and an affront to the supposed principles of limited government that they tout.

    A third party is EXACTLY what is needed in this country.

    Furthermore, perfessor, it is most ironic that you are calling out how the media is putting the cart before the horse (i.e. declaring a person’s guilt before presenting evidence) when you and your boyzzz are well-known for engaging in the same sort of character assassination. So please spare me the sanctimony. If you are so concerned about how the lives of people are ruined by baseless accusations, be the adult and call out it in your own backyard.

    Yes, it is awful that Cain’s reputation is being scrutinized for political gain. But that is how politics works today. That is how our media–right AND left–currently operates.

      And anyone who casts a single vote that ensures Obama’s re-election is far, FAR worse.

      I mean, if you want to see this country virtually burned to the ground by the time someone else gets a chance to sit in the White House, you should proudly say so, because that IS effectively what you are agitating for.

      I have ZERO respect for anyone who sits home in 2012 and watches Obama get re-elected no matter WHO is on the ballot opposite him. I would vote for a rock. Hell, I might consider pulling the lever for John Kerry over Obama.

      I appreciate your ideological rigidity. Enjoy it while this country descends further towards European socialism after Obama is elected. I can buy into your statement if you said “votes for Romney in the primaries,” but if he is the nominee, then a non vote or vote for a third party is in essence a vote for Obama. That’s the way the system works today, like it or not. Some day a third party might be viable, but not in November 2012.

    SCOTUS justice Clarence Thomas’ wife interviewed Herman Cain in this video.
    I am not a Cain supporter but when something so crazy and malicious occurs as these anonymous accusatory statements are publicized, I must speak out. Where is decency that an accuser would get away with making hurtful statements anonymously and not facing the accuser? What has happened to the rule of law? There are socially acceptable ways a woman can assert herself in dealing with an offensive comment and it is not a legal remedy.
    The Cain Team is not handling this very well. Mr. Cain then makes a accusatory statement pointing blame at Governor Perry without a shred of evidence. And when the person he named from Perry’s team denied it and said he thought well of Mr. Cain. Governor Perry does not stoop to such idiocy but look at the history of Obama’s rise in Illinois then D.C. and the people whose careers he destroyed by such underhanded tactics.

    That’s it? Really, that’s it? My response, fix your own tea – not a law suit. She should hide herself; what an embarrassment – her, not Cain. Go Herman!!

    Let’s stay on point, deadrody. All I hear is how conservatives want to take back “their” country. They want a candidate who completely embraces their ideology. They complain bitterly about Romney’s policies and social issues waffling…yet will vote for him as president?

    Nope, sorry, absolutely hypocritical. One might as well turn in their conservative card and call it a day!

    Moreover, deadrody and DougV need to lay off the partisan sauce.

    DougV–“but if he is the nominee, then a non vote or vote for a third party is in essence a vote for Obama.”

    So you are willing to prostitute yourself by supporting a person who does not pass the conservative litmus test, just because he is allegedly better than Obama?
