It does behoove Rick Perry and not just his spokespeople to address the concerns that the Cain campaign have put forward about them doing this hit job on him. The reason he needs to answer? the people who had personal knowledge of these harassment charges (and no they were not sexual harassment, reread the Politico story) work for Perry’s campaign. There is the supposed disinterested pollster who was saying Herman would go down if the women came out to speak because he was there. Well, interestingly enough, he like the women somehow cannot discuss because of some legal clause? did he file a harassment charge against Herman as well? or is he a gutter snipe lying without facts to back him up? I Am Going With Gutter Snipe
Wilson described the woman as a low level staffer who was maybe two years out of college. “This occurred at a restaurant in Crystal City (Virginia) and everybody was aware of it,” he continued. “It was only a matter of time because so many people were aware of what took place, so many people were aware of her situation, the fact she left—everybody knew with the campaign that this would eventually come up.”
Wilson said for legal reasons, he can not discuss details of the incident. “But if she comes out and talks about it, like I said, it’ll probably be the end of his campaign.”
Isn’t that convenient? more so then that lie, is the fact that Mr. Wilson is a pollster for Governor Perry via a Super PAC
I don’t know if there is more than one source or not, but, according to Politco, Chris Wilson, a Governor Perry supporter and pollster for the super PAC that supports Governor Perry, worked at the National Restaurant Association and is the (a?) source for the Cain/sexual harassment story. He said the episode of harassment occurred in a public restaurant in the 1990′s and that many people knew about it.
What is WEIRD about the Politico story and Chris Wilson, is that Chris Wilson would not or did not say what happened. The only reason that omission catches my attention is that sexual harassment is a rather “fluid” concept. Some actions are OBVIOUSLY sexual harassment and some are NOT – and are merely actions misinterpreted or exaggerated. Hence I would like to know what it is that people (Chris Wilson) say Mr. Cain did.
Greta has asked the very questions I ask, this person who is a Rick Perry acolyte is on a radio station accusing Mr. Cain of untoward behavior, then refuses to say what the behavior is? that is acceptable, Mr. Perry within your campaign? Then we get to the man that Herman Cain told this to many years ago, on another campaign, who just started to work for Rick Perry Curt Anderson
Aside from knowing about the alleged sexual harassment accusations, Cain campaign officials point to the timing of Anderson’s hiring by Perry as evidence of his involvement. The campaign announced Anderson’s role on October 24, just a week before Politico broke the story.
Does he regret telling Anderson about it? “I don’t regret it at all,” Cain says. “The guy who was supposed to help with strategy should know everything. I put it on the table right from the get go. I wasn’t trying to hide it.”
Perhaps Cain should have known better. Throughout his career, Anderson, a well-known consultant in Washington, has worked for a slew of campaigns, including Gov. Mitt Romney in 2008. He also contributes to Politico a few times per year. In an August 2011 column, he chided conservatives and “Republican elites” for what he called “Perryphobia.” And he wasn’t officially working for the Perry campaign yet.
I have given more information on an accusation then anything that has been given on Herman Cain and his harassment case. There have been no named sources, only anonymous accusers, the one who says he saw “something” is conveniently held back from saying what because of a legality? If Rick Perry wants that kind of gutter snipe associated with his campaign then he has to stand up and answer for that type of behavior. One man, alluding to something dramatic he saw but never saying what he saw is the kind of pathetic crap I expect from Barack Obama, hell its how he won every seat he has had, nasty, divisive lies.
