“Women for Cain” Site Attacks “Husbandless” Accusers

By: Friday December 2, 2011 11:35 am

Herman Cain is basically done as a Presidential candidate. His numbers have cratered in Iowa, and his wife, who didn’t know he was financially supporting the woman who accused him of a 13-year affair, wants him out of the race. In a week or so, he’ll be a footnote. So it’s nice to see he’s [...]

Cain Accuser Petitions National Restaurant Association to Go Public

By: Friday November 4, 2011 10:00 am

One of Herman Cain’s accusers from a series of sexual harassment charges stemming back to the late 1990s when he headed the National Restaurant Association has readied a prepared statement, and is waiting for the NRA to decide today if she will be allowed to deliver the statement. The accuser is bound by a confidentiality [...]

Cain Sexual Harassment Scandal Metastasizes

By: Wednesday November 2, 2011 2:18 pm

This is starting to implode for Herman Cain. Obviously, the prurient nature of the 24-hour media meant that a sexual harassment scandal like this was going to blow up, but you thought that Cain could contain it or even take the martyrdom angle and use it to whip up support among the base. And some [...]

Lawyer Says Cain Violated Confidentiality Agreement on Sexual Harassment Settlement

By: Wednesday November 2, 2011 7:35 am

I mentioned in last night’s Roundup that one of the Herman Cain’s accusers of sexual harassment from his days running the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s actually wants to speak out about the incidents, but is barred by a confidentiality agreement. This highlights the one-sided nature of these agreements. Cain, when he’s gotten around [...]

Network of Private Corporations Paid for Cain Campaign Startup Costs

By: Monday October 31, 2011 11:00 am

Jon Walker has already highlighted the allegations of sexual harassment against Herman Cain, dating back to his time at the National Restaurant Association. I know you’re terribly shocked about these allegations of a man in a position of power sexually harassing a woman. But for what it’s worth, I’m not sure that these allegations are [...]

Ensign Report Shows Sexual Harassment, Cluelessness About the Law

By: Friday May 13, 2011 11:03 am

The John Ensign report from the Senate Ethics Committee is really a sad piece of pulp fiction. You have a US Senator in a strong position of power essentially bullying a female subordinate into an affair, refusing to give up on it after being caught several times, finally trying to cover up the evidence of [...]

Boehner Urges Reopening of the Mark Foley Case

By: Wednesday April 14, 2010 7:45 am

John Boehner is very disturbed that we still don’t know everything about who in the leadership knew about Mark Foley’s relationships with Congressional pages, and he wants a full investigation. What? Oh wait, he’s actually talking about Eric Massa: House Minority Leader John Boehner Tuesday called on the ethics committee to launch its investigation into [...]

House Approves Resolution to Reopen Massa Ethics Committee Investigation

By: Thursday March 11, 2010 10:31 am

House Republicans managed to reopen the Eric Massa investigation in the Ethics Committee with a privileged resolution, passing with a whopping 402-1 count, with 15 members voting “present”. The new investigation would look specifically into when Democratic leaders knew about the allegations against the former New York Congressman. Democrats had closed the investigation into Massa, [...]

The Extremely Odd Massa/Beck Interview

By: Tuesday March 9, 2010 3:06 pm

Blogs everywhere went dark for the past hour, tuning in to Glenn Beck’s interview with former Congressman Eric Massa. And nobody learned much of anything, beyond the value of purchasing gold. In fact, Massa apparently presented himself almost totally differently than he did to get Beck to book him on the show. Frequently looking confused [...]

Massa Charges Now Allegedly Involve Groping Male Staffers

By: Tuesday March 9, 2010 12:25 pm

I definitely defended Eric Massa against charges from anonymous sources of sexual harassment, particularly when he said cancer scares were the reason for his resignation. Now that he has gone to war against the Democratic Party for allegedly forcing him out to pass health care, more anonymous charges have leaked out from unidentified sources. Former [...]

Will Massa Still Resign?

By: Monday March 8, 2010 1:26 pm

A whole bunch of things don’t add up in Eric Massa’s long radio interview yesterday, and the unfolding drama which will continue tomorrow with an hour-long interview on Glenn Beck’s Fox News show. But the biggest one is why Massa would come out now with these allegations of backstabbing by the Democratic leadership, opening himself [...]
