Around the web there is so much going on about the potential smearing of 2012 hopeful Herman Cain. Just take a look for yourself:
A defiant Herman Cain accused Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, a Republican rival, of orchestrating a smear campaign to destroy his presidential candidacy, as additional accusations emerged Wednesday that Mr. Cain made unwanted sexual overtures to women while he led the National Restaurant Association more than a decade ago.
One of the women who GOP frontrunner Herman Cain said made a false accusation of sexual harassment against him has decided not to go public.
Lawyer Joel Bennett said the Maryland woman, who now works for the federal government, has decided not to make a public statement to challenge Cain’s version of what happened when they worked together at the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.
Before Herman Cain accused rival Rick Perry of leaking details about a sexual harassment allegation, the rest of the GOP presidential field largely stayed in the background.
The silence has ended.
Newt Gingrich told CNN on Wednesday night that he finds the idea of a possible smear campaign “repulsive.”
“I’d want to see the evidence, but I would say if it turns out that a Republican presidential candidate deliberately went out and created this kind of a story about a fellow candidate, that they would pretty rapidly become a pariah to the rest of us and they’d fire who did it,” said Gingrich, a former House speaker.
