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.

Did draft experts correctly predict Elam last year? (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
Are the Ravens going to take Notre Dame tackle Zack Martin? We went back and checked out how some of the top national pundits fared with their final 2013 mock first-round draft pick for the Ravens. Of course, the Ravens were drafting at No. 32 last year, so a lot more variables were in play last year than this year, when the Ravens, barring a move up or down, will draft at No. 17. A couple of national writers correctly linked the Ravens and Florida safety Matt Elam, but many did not project Elam as a first-round pick.

Ravens may face choice between Clinton-Dix and Pryor (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
The Ravens will have an interesting choice if both Ha Ha Clinton-Dix of Alabama and Calvin Pryor of Louisville are available with the 17th pick. NFL Network analyst Charles Davis prefers Clinton-Dix. Not to say that Clinton-Dix doesnt tackle, he does. Can Calvin Pryor do those things?

Will Bengals, A.J. Green work out long-term deal? (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
One of the things on the Cincinnati Bengals plate, business-wise, is dealing with a long-term contract for Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green, their most potent offensive weapon. Even if the Bengals do nothing about a new deal, Green is contractually bound to them for 2014 and 2015 even 2016 if they wanted to go the franchise tag route. Should Green be at all displeased about a lack of progress on a new contract, his options are limited, as PFT says. So thats why coach Marvin Lewis told PFT he isnt worried about a holdout.

Ravens, 49ers to hold joint practices in August (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
The Ravens and 49ers will hold four combined practices in Maryland following their Thursday, Aug. 7 preseason game at M&T Bank Stadium. They will hold a light practice together at M&T the day after the game, followed by three joint sessions at the Ravens practice facility in Owings Mills from Aug. 9-11. It will give Ravens coach John Harbaugh and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh a chance to spend more time together, while their teams compete against each other. I called Jim about a month ago and asked him if he wanted to do it, and I wasnt really sure if hed want to, John Harbaugh told the Ravens website.

Report: Rolando McClain expected to work with Ravens soon (ProFootball Talk on NBC Sportsa)
