Herman Cain: “I Was Falsely Accused of Sexual Harassment”
Filed under: — Robert Farrow @ 10:40 pm

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.

Report: Rice's wife urged Goodell to be lenient (The SportsXchange)
The wife of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice had an influence on why Rice received only a two-game suspension stemming from the assault charge he received earlier this year. According to TheMMQB.com, Rice's wife, Janay Palmer, asked NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to go easy on him. Rice was indicted on a third-degree assault charge following a physical incident with Palmer, then his fiancee, at an Atlantic City hotel in February. Palmer reportedly "made a moving and apparently convincing case to Goodell during a June 16 hearing ... that the incident in the hotel elevator was a one-time event, and nothing physical had happened in their relationship before or since," according to TheMMQB.com.

Three other players barely made it to training camp before sustaining season-ending injuries - all without getting touched. Ravens cornerback Aaron Ross tore an Achilles tendon during his conditioning test.

Injured G Carl Nicks, Bucs agree to part ways (The Associated Press)

''He wanted what we best for the Buccaneers. We were honest with Carl.''

NFL roundup: Lynch a no-show at Seahawks' camp (The SportsXchange)

Fans stoke Dalton debate: 'AJ to A.J.' is future (The SportsXchange)
While debates simmer about if, when and for how much the Cincinnati Bengals should redo quarterback Andy Dalton's contract, now in its fourth year, the fans weighed in when training camp began Thursday. One implored the Bengals to not sign Dalton, while the other read "AJ to A.J. The future is now," referring to rookie quarterback AJ McCarron, whom the team selected in the fifth round, and All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Green. Another sign read: "Don't sign Dalton. Early this week, Bengals owner Mike Brown suggested Dalton is worthy of a deal similar to the one San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick signed this year -- a six-year extension worth as much as $126 million, give or take a truckload of cash.
