The lawyer for one of the women who accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment said his client may get a chance to speak publicly about the allegations because the GOP presidential candidate violated the confidentiality agreement between the two.
Attorney Joel Bennett told CBS’s The Early Show on Wednesday that his client hasn’t spoken publicly because of the confidentiality agreement, but that Cain’s comments may have cleared a path.
So, let me get this straight. When confronted by the media about decade-old harassment claims, Herman Cain says that he knows nothing about any settlement agreement, in accordance with the confidentiality agreement — but when Cain finally drip-feeds some information after being hounded by a coaxing mainstream press more rabid than they had ever been in connection with Barack Obama’s past, the attorney for the accuser claims that by drip-feeding information, Cain has violated that confidentiality agreement?
For lack of a better word, that’s a bunch of crap.
As it turns out, what I thought was a major PR breakdown by Cain looked to be Cain doing the right thing insofar as the settlement agreement and confidentiality agreement was concerned. He was damned if he followed the agreement by claiming that he knew nothing about any such agreement, and now that he has clarified, he is damned for purportedly having violated the agreement.
All this because he was being relentlessly pursued by the same mainstream media that took more than one year to report on how John Edwards funneled $100,000 in campaign funds to the mother of his love child, with whom he was having an affair while his late cancer-stricken wife bravely stood by his side.
Enough for now. Look here in this space in coming days for a link to a podcast featuring me and the extremely talented Duane Lester of All American Blogger.
