Herman Cain and The Unfortunate Sexual Harassment Allegations

So where did these allegations come from after about 14 years? Why did they surface after all this time? To my mind they are just part of a larger smear campaign of a nice man doing a really good job of running for the Republican Presidential Candidate.

I don’t know if they are true or not, who does, when most things like sexual innuendo goes on behind closed doors between two people? Unfortunately for Herman Cain it’s too easy for a disgruntled woman to cry wolf and get away with it.

Personally, I wouldn’t have let Herman speak on the Greta Van Susteren Show on FOX without Counsel for no matter what he says it will not seem correct. It seems to me that “Politico” and “The Huffington Post” may be on a witch hunt and Herman is in their sights. Herman Cain did not remember the incidents clearly, he seemed to answer honestly, but he is not always succinct and with a matter of this severity I would probably like Counsel to back me up, even though that could also be misconstrued as showing guilt, but at least he would be legally protected.

If I was Herman,  I would contemplate seeking advice from someone with a vast amount of experience in this arena, none other than Bill Clinton perhaps could help steer him through this minefield.  As has been proven, even when guilty when handled the right way it won’t stick to you.

    The reality is that when this happened, he almost certainly thought “How will this effect my run for President in 15 years?” I’ve been in companies where people have threatened bogus charges based on the flimsiest of evidence, and the pragmatic reality is that from a business perspective it’s easier to pay off those people to “go away” in exchange for not filing charges (that way the company doesn’t have to deal with the litigation (more expensive and people’s time-consuming than the pay-off) or the bad publicity). The problem for a candidate is that if you admit to that, it sounds like you’re willing to sell off “principle” for expediency.

    I would actually love it if he said “Look — the charges were bogus, but we paid them to go away because in reality we had more important things to do with our time and attention.”

    What a damn shame for Herman Cain! I am embarrassed for woman everywhere! When women cry wolf it takes attention away from REAL crimes of Harassment;ie if these woman were really traumatized I don’t think they would have been “bought” off so easily, and willing to forget…

    A good breakdown on the rhetorical pitfalls that this whole situation will make for him.

    Perhaps you should consider freelancing as a communications strategist.

    Also, while I’m not a supporter of Cain, it does seem oddly suspicious that these allegations hadn’t come up sooner. I’d also like to see matters like this treated with more objectivity and political restraint in the media… although I’m thinking that might be asking too much.

    Thanks for the kind words on my work, you’re welcome to come visit in NYC and see the “process.”
