The old saying - "where there is smoke there is fire." One wonders if the smoke in Cain's bid for the presidency will either be smothered, or flame. It is past time, and for the most part, deserving, that we the people have men and women of honesty, honor, virtue and integrity, govern this country.

Just for a moment, consider Cain did what the reports indicate. Sexual Harassment,as defined in most every business, includes ANYTHING ANYONE may find offensive. It does NOT mean that the comment or action had any sexual overtures, nor does it imply anything was done wrong. It does say someone got offended at something and they were paid to leave and keep a confidence - which obviously dod not happen. So who really did something unethical?

It's probably not long now when this candidate will be driven from the race by media pressure. He can no longer function as a candidate, and cannot seem to survive this growing distraction. The media calls its vetting, as in a veterinarian examination to find the causes of ailment. If a candidate has skeletons in the closet they do not want to share, do not put yourself in the public eye.

@ Rufio: You need to check your definitions. Sexual harassment is specific to harassment based on sex or of a sexual nature.

As for who did something unethical, the story was unearthed by a newspaper - there is no indication either of the women who filed the reports and received settlements were in any way involved with the release of the information.

Even Cain is claiming it is coming from a source other than the women.

And no one gets $35,000 just for being "offended."

(If there is nothing there, why not release the women from the confidentiality agreement so we can see the nothing that is there?)
