Four women have publicly accused Herman Cain of sexually harassing them. Cain says they are all lying. Now a fifth women has stated that she and Cain had a 13-year affair that ended when he decided to run for president. Cain says she is lying. Oddly, Cain’s lawyer issued a statement saying an affair between consenting adults is nobody’s business but theirs. Cain now says he is reassessing his run for the Oval office.
Indeed Cain’s support is collapsing. The question is where will it go? The answer almost certainly is that it will go to Gingrich. Today’s Globe and Mail speaks of a « stampede » to Gingrich. He already leads Romney in Iowa and South Carolina and is within striking distance in New Hampshire.
This is very good news for Obama. He would beat Gingrich more easily than he would beat Romney. His operatives are salivating at the thought of Gingrich as the Republican nominee.
Sadly for the GOP, this presidential race has turned into a carnival. Perry, Bachman and now Cain are all losers who should not be running for the highest office in the land. Can you imagine a former pizza magnate with multiple charges of harassing women ending up in the White House. It boggles the mind. Cain’s sexual shenanigans have demeaned the whole race. It is a carnival in which the most impressive candidate, Jon Hunstman, does not get anywhere with these rock-ribbed conservatives.
Should Cain get out of the race now?
Is Cain hurting the GOP?
