As I watched the press conference with Sharon Bialek, who accused Herman Cain of groping her, I was struck by her resemblance to Gennifer Flowers. In 1992, Flowers claimed she had a 12-year relationship with then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton.
The Cain campaign issued a statement denying “Republican front-runner Herman Cain” had sexual contact with “woman number four”:
Just as the country finally begins to refocus on our crippling $15 trillion national debt and the unacceptably high unemployment rate, now activist celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred is bringing forth more false accusations against the character of Republican front-runner Herman Cain.
All allegations of harassment against Mr. Cain are completely false. Mr. Cain has never harassed anyone. Fortunately the American people will not allow Mr. Cain’s bold “9-9-9 Plan,” clear foreign policy vision and plans for energy independence to be overshadowed by these bogus attacks.
During an appearance on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” Cain said he will hold a press conference today, to “set the record straight.”
It is said that history repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce. First, it is a farcical notion that Cain is a serious GOP presidential front-runner. Second, his campaign is descending into tragicomedy.
