@ 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?)
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
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?
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.
