Herman Cain: “I Was Falsely Accused of Sexual Harassment”

The Curious Timing of the Herman Cain Accusation

J. Robert Smith

For Herman Cain, forget the treats; just bring on the tricks.

Republican presidential contender Herman Cain is the subject of a bombshell accusation on Halloween day that he sexually harassed two women during his tenure at the National Restaurant Association. Cain stoutly denies the charges.

The curious thing about the accusations against Cain are their timing. Why now? Why did Politico break the news now, as opposed to weeks before or later, if Cain secured the GOP presidential nomination? Did Politico only obtain the story now, or had it been sitting on the report for a while? Why now?

Early opinion among conservative leaders is that the fossil media is up to its old tricks in reporting allegations of sexual harassment against Cain. Politico is serving as the cat’s paw for its liberal allies and the Democrat Party, goes the thinking. This could be. The fossil media – Politico included – may have determined that Cain poses a potent threat to Barack Obama’s presidency and that he had to be politically offed now before he gained any more momentum. A Cain presidency could shake liberaldom, the race industry, and the Democratic Party to its foundations.

But there’s another consideration to make in the Cain attack. Who benefits immediately from bursting Cain’s fast-rising presidential balloon? Why, Cain’s Republican rivals. Sherlock Holmes wasn’t about sleuthing for the obvious suspects, nor should those following the Cain story as it unfolds. It may be worth investigating Cain’s GOP rivals, who have every reason to facilitate the allegations against the Georgia businessman.

It’s all speculation at this point, but no GOP candidate or campaign should be eliminated as a potential source for the broadside aimed at Cain. Certainly, it would be good to hear condemnation coming for all GOP presidential candidates about the attempt to “high tech lynch” their fellow Republican.

Given Cain’s dramatic rise in the polls, mudslinging in Cain’s direction is as inevitable as little ghosts and goblins showing at neighborhood doors throughout the nation on Halloween night. Tricks are more the rule in politics than treats. That’s just a fact of life.
