Despite several recent sexual allegations presidential candidate Herman Cain’s poll numbers have not declined tremendously. Shocked?
Now for those who have been living under a rock, Cain is running for Grand Old Party nomination.
But now he isn’t defending the 9-9-9 plan; he is defending himself against four or is it five women who have claimed that Cain sexual harassed them. The first accuser’s identity was just revealed.
On Monday, Cain held a news conference to speak out about these allegations.
“I choose to address these accusations directly, rather than try and do it through a series of statements or spokesperson, that is who Herman Cain is. I take my message directly to the people,” said Cain.
Now I don’t know if Cain sexually harassed all of these women. However, I do believe there is some merit to his statement that he made earlier in the news conference.
“Now that I am running for the highest position in the land all of this is coming to light. Not surprising but expected,” Cain said.
Honestly, I agree. Now don’t get me wrong; I am not saying by any means that Cain is innocent. However, this man has been CEO of prominent companies, not to mention how long has he been running for office? Almost a year?
Why wait till now? Those who are familiar with the allegations could have announced this when there was a GOP debate in Tampa, Nevada and on and on.
Not to mention one of the accusers has been involved in several small claims suits. Where is the red flag? Now granted, he was a powerful man; he may have forced these women to do things they didn’t want to.
It is believable because it happens all the time.
Since all the allegations “Cain’s favorability among all registered voters fell to 32 percent from 37 percent.
So, what does that tell us? “Playa Playa” is still going strong. People who love Cain don’t believe these allegations. And he knows this.
I don’t know if he did it. Fact is, politics is a dirty game, and the truth does not always matter.
If he did it, he doesn’t need to get away with it. And if he didn’t we need to allow him a to continue his campaign. We tend to always turn a blind eye when it is someone we like, but we need to reflect not only on this situation but on how we as a country should deal with a delicate issue like this.
