Following the outing of GOP Presidential contender Herman Cain’s past and a sexual harassment allegation by two woman, Cain is considering suing The Politico. Although the explanations from the Herman Cain camp could have been organized and presented better, one still has to wonder how much of this is an over the top political hatchet job? Cain needs to just present the facts, if he is legally allowed to and move on. However, the MSM will not be satisfied until they have destroyed Cain and left him as political road kill.
A Herman Cain aide said Thursday that the Cain campaign is considering its legal options over the original Politico story, which revealed that the former head of the National Restaurant Association was accused of sexually harassing at least two women during his tenure in the 1990s.
“This is likely not over with Politico from a legal perspective,” a campaign official told the Post, stopping short of explaining what exactly he meant by taking legal action against the publication.
As reported at the Gateway Pundit, Cain may also want to add the NY Times to the lawsuit. However, an interesting thing is occurring when it comes to Herman Cain’s polling. Following the allegations coming out and the subsequent rebuttals from Cain … the Hermanator finds himself ahead still in the polls. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, Cain leads the GOP candidates in the national poll … Cain 26%, Romney 23% and Gingrich 14%. Herman Cain also leads in a Rasmussen South Carolina poll, Cain 33% Romney 23% and Gingrich 15%. In an ABC-Washington Post poll, it is basically a dead heat between Cain and Romney.
The issue is not whether Herman Cain will finally tell all and explain the matter away, it is whether the bias MSM will let the story go as they smell blood in the water and can aid their candidate Barack Obama.
