More Coming Out of the Woodwork – Big Problems for Cain

02 Nov

One of the problems with not handling an issue quickly and professionally – especially in the charged world of sex and politics… Is it comes back to haunt you.

Once might be a misunderstanding or a stupid mistake. Twice to the point of having to make payoffs for legal settlements… He’s done it a whole bunch more times and gotten away with it.

Suing for sexual or racial harassment or discrimination can be a career limiting experience – not to mention the sometimes years before the lawyers can come to a settlement. So it’s not something that is done lightly by most people. So generally for every person who feels they are forced into filing a formal complaint – there are 6 or more who are afraid to who have had the same, or worse experiences.

One of the character flaws which have become increasingly obvious with Cain is his inability to take advice from his staff. He is way too full of himself to listen to the political professionals.  That’s not real smart behavior from a supposed CEO. Your staff can raise you up, they can take you down. The difference between a smart CEO and a stupid one is often in how he works with his staff. A large part of which is to let them do their jobs, and listening to them.

Herman’s treatment of this issue has opened the floodgates…

Stick a fork in him. He’s toast!

Third employee alleges sexual misconduct by Cain

A third former employee says she considered filing a workplace complaint over what she considered aggressive and unwanted behavior by Herman Cain when she worked for the presidential candidate in the 1990s. She says the behavior included a private invitation to his corporate apartment.

Herman Cain dodges harassment questions as third accuser surfaces

She worked for the National Restaurant Association when he was its head. She told The Associated Press that Cain made sexually suggestive remarks or gestures about the same time that two co-workers had settled separate harassment complaints against him.

The employee described situations in which she said Cain told her he had confided to colleagues how attractive she was and invited her to his corporate apartment outside work. She spoke on condition of anonymity, saying she feared retaliation.

Cain’s campaign declined to comment.

    I’ve been around long enough to know that if someone retains a lawyer for SH allegations, they’ve gone through other steps and they have pretty good evidence. Also, it frequently means there are other victims who never make an accusation.

      There are now two witnesses, and 3 different women – all basically saying that Cain abused his position as President of the Association to sexually harass women…

      Cain is a serial rapist – simple as that. Instead of a gun or a knife – he used his position of power over the women.

      Won’t be long now before the women he assaulted start coming out of the Godfather’s Pizza company’s woodwork as well.

      You get a DWI once, the judge might buy that you did something stupid, have learned your lesson, and are unlikely to repeat it. Someplace between the second and third DWI – it’s not an “accident” – you’re an alcoholic or drug addict, and letting you loose on the street without some sort of treatment is an invitation to disaster, as you aren’t able to treat yourself, and will repeat the behavior. This is the same deal with Cain. The guy has a “problem” – and it is likely there will be dozens of other accusers coming out …
