Herman, and now Keith.

So the Herman Cain drama continues, and his conservative peeps are standing by their man. Herman has been telling anyone who will listen that he did not flirt or act inappropriately with that woman.

That woman's attorney, Joel Bennett, was on CNN today telling the world that his client stands by her accusations, and that Mr.9-9-9 knew exactly what he did.
(Poor Mr. Bennett says that he has been getting all kinds of nasty e-mails and phone threats from those God fearing conservatives since the scandal broke.) 

Mrs. Cain, bless her heart, has been standing by her man as well. But there is just so much a spouse can take.  

"Herman Cain's wife, Gloria Cain, has remained out of the spotlight throughout his presidential campaign. And now comes news that she has canceled a scheduled appearance on Fox News, the New York Times reports:
Ms. Cain had indicated to the network earlier in the week that she would appear on "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren" tomorrow night, but apparently had a change of heart. The person familiar with the talks, who requested anonymity to discuss private conversations, said that Ms. Cain did not entirely close the door on appearing on the network some time in the future." [Source]
Oh oh Herman, it might be time tighten up on the home front. At some point you are going to have to make an appearance with the Mrs by your side, if she is not there, it won't be a good look for you.

Sadly, Herman isn't the only brother facing sexual harassment complaints thee days in A-merry-ca. Over at ESPN a powerful television executive is also facing charges of acting in an inappropriate manner.
 
[Keith Clinkscales] "The former ESPN executive who filed a pre-emptive lawsuit denying he fondled himself on an airplane while sitting next to sports reporter Erin Andrews -[*in pic with this post] hours before the website Deadspin actually reported the allegation - had to move quickly to protect his reputation, his attorney told the Daily News on Thursday.

Judd Burstein, a lawyer for former ESPN vice-president , said he filed the
defamation suit against ESPN employee Joan Lynch, ensuring that the allegations would become public, because the fondling allegation is “ludicrous” and, he said, because Deadspin is not a credible news source.

That’s all I have to say.”

"We have no comment on the lawsuit,” said ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz. “With respect to these reports, we want to state very clearly that in accordance with ESPN policies, if a claim is brought to our attention, it is taken very seriously and responded to appropriately.”

“She should not have done what she did,” Burstein said of Lynch. “She shouldn’t be able to get away with this.”
Deadspin has a long history of reporting on boorish behavior by ESPN executives and on-air personalities, and Burstein said that was a factor in his decision to file the suit.
“That was factored into the equation, the lack of respect in the sports world for Deadspin,” he said. “If the allegation had come from a credible New York newspaper, I would have taken a different tact.”

When The News contacted Deadspin editor A.J. Daulerio, the author of the Clinkscales post, for comment, he said: “Oscar De La Hoya. That’s my comment.
Burstein led a ferocious legal and public relations attack on a stripper named Milana Dravnel, De La Hoya’s former lover. When their affair ended in late 2007, she tried to sell photos of the boxer wearing fishnet stockings and women’s underwear. Dravnel filed a $25 million slander suit against De La Hoya, but later dropped the case, claiming she had been intimidated by the boxer and his entourage.

In an interview with Univision in September, however, De La Hoya acknowledged the pictures were real.

The defamation suit Burstein filed on Clinkscale’s behalf in Manhattan federal court on Wednesday says Lynch conducted a smear campaign against his client, falsely claiming that he had fondled himself while sitting next to Andrews on a March 2011 flight. Lynch also lied when she told ESPN colleagues that Clinkscales assaulted her in a production truck in 2007, according to the lawsuit, which seeks in excess of $75,000 in damages.

Deadspin has not confirmed or denied that Lynch, who will lose her job in January because the content development department once led by Clinkscales has been eliminated, was the anonymous source.

The lawsuit was filed hours before Deadspin posted a report that quoted an anonymous source who said Clinkscales, sitting in an aisle seat on a airplane, had fondled himself while sitting next to Andrews.

“It if had happened, there would have been witnesses,” Burstein said. “He would have been arrested.”

Burstein also said Lynch lied when she claimed Clinkscales assaulted her in 2007. Deadspin reported the incident took place in front of numerous witnesses. “The fact that the story has not surfaced even though there are witnesses is ludicrous,” Burstein said.

The lawsuit claims Lynch, who is white, has engaged in a smear campaign against Clinkscales, an African-American, because she believed he was not qualified for his job and felt that she should have been promoted to the position.
“Driven by this racial animus and sense of entitlement,” said the suit, “Lynch was routinely insubordinate to Plaintiff. Worse, still, she was at time incompetent.” [Source]

Sorry Mr. Clinkscales, you are on your own with this one. Unless, of course, you happen to be a conservative.

how does one "fondle" oneself? Was the man masturbating? Making an adjustment? Swinging himself in a circle like a rat on a string? "Fondle" just seems so vague.

I wish Field would leave Mr Cain alone. He is a good man and a great contender for President.

Putting aside Liberal black democratic attitudes surely you must have some black pride about Herman Cain? You couldn't possibly be that deeply committed to the dem white master; you couldn't be that deep into the master's House are you?

Have a little compassion for another Brotha. He is innocent, and a good soul. Even white Republicans like Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh stand behind Herman Cain. For those two to support a brotha, you have GOT TO KNOW, that Cain is ok. WTFU, Field.

HA! So after insulting every African American voter in the country by claiming we blindly voted for Obama because he's Black--we should suddenly support Cain because he's Black.

Again, the mental gymnastics of the Conservative crowd is an amazing thing to behold.

I DID support Obama because I believed he would bring the change that is so desperately needed in America. He has done nothing, including ignoring the entire black race.

As far as LAA is concerned, I have generally supported everything she or Fp has said, NOT because of who they are, but because of their commitment to the truth, which is what I am trying to do. I still have a ways to go, but I honor LAA for her straight-forward honesty.

I would never call LAA an 'Eris of the blog', mainly because I haven't the faintest idea what or who that is. Me thinks you are confused about "Who's Who Among Anonymous on FN." You need to get out of the Anonymous detective business....your skills and ability in this area sucks.

I am having trouble with the name, "Clinkscale". It sounds like someone who could be a masturbator.

In this case, however, the brotha is innocent just like Cain is innocent. Joan Lynch is trying to lynch brotha Clinkscale just like the media is trying to lynch a good soul like Herman Cain. IMO, Lynch is toast, esp after Erin has her say.

Some of you FN folks like Miss Brooklyn- who doesn't even know the community in Brooklyn where Slappy is from- have the nerve to put down our future Republican President.

All you want to do is beat up on him like a bunch of dem House Negroes. No wonder we can't unite! There are too many "sell-outs" like some of you folks on FN.

Thank God there are some black folks with brains like AB who stand on Principles in much the same way Herman Cain does. Some of you folks like Mack Lyons and PilotX have no Principles--Field too...your moral compass is broken. Or maybe you liberal Negroes never had one?

I mean, the word Liberal, indicates you have no morals...Right? Now go and watch your porns, and smoke your weed, it's Friday Night.

Brooklyn, "HA! So after insulting every African American voter in the country by claiming we blindly voted for Obama because he's Black--we should suddenly support Cain because he's Black."


The only one who insulted the African American Voter is Obama. That's why he finished because No One can believe a word he says. And furthermore, he is spineless. It is quite the opposite for Cain. You mess with Cain and he will stomp on your ass and send you to hell. You see, Cain relates and understands the nature of America and its history. Obama does not.

So get it together girlfriend and vote for the best candidate for President:

HERMAN CAIN!!!

How would you know? You are a Negro and the natural color of your sheeps wool nap is black. This makes you think you are better than a bleached blonde because you are a weaved negro? How many degrees do you have?

Despite the envy you display with lack of knowledge and racist labeling, your ignorance is clear. Jews do not have nappy canvas sheep like hair, like you and don't have to wear someone elses hair to appear semi human.

So the Herman Cain drama continues, and his conservative peeps are standing by their man. Herman has been telling anyone who will listen that he did not flirt or act inappropriately with that woman.

So Field, interesting development on the latest democratic character assassination squad.

The Rest. Ass. waived the confidentiality of the agreement and told the "victims" lawyer go ahead and talk about it.

Now she despite demanding earlier she be released from the confidentially agreement has suddenly decided when she is released that she wants to keep it confidential.

Another failed democratic hit job. Even the attacks are incompetent. What happened was she was fired for performance, made a false claim as is the case often and got what she considered a settlement when in fact it was a severance payment of a piddling 45k. Pretty much a severence amount.

I hope someone investigates this fully and exposes the details of the fraud so all the hucksters promoting it can be exposed as non trustworthy individuals.

Isn't it ironic that a Black man needs to be defended against unfair attacks from Black Racists.

Andy Rooney Died. Thought some of you FN Negro haters of Andy Rooney would love to know, esp. Field.

Andy, I don't hate you, I love you. Thanks for the years on 60 Mins. and for the great editorials. I loved them. R.I.P.

NEW YORK -- "Andy Rooney so dreaded the day he had to end his signature "60 Minutes" commentaries about life's large and small absurdities that he kept going until he was 92 years old.

Even then, he said he wasn't retiring. Writers never retire. But his life after the end of "A Few Minutes With Andy Rooney" was short: He died Friday night, according to CBS(CBS_), only a month after delivering his 1,097th and final televised commentary.

Rooney had gone to the hospital for an undisclosed surgery, but major complications developed and he never recovered.

"Andy always said he wanted to work until the day he died, and he managed to do it, save the last few weeks in the hospital," said his "60 Minutes" colleague, correspondent Steve Kroft.

Rooney talked on "60 Minutes" about what was in the news, and his opinions occasionally got him in trouble. But he was just as likely to discuss the old clothes in his closet, why air travel had become unpleasant and why banks needed to have important-sounding names.

Rooney won one of his four Emmy Awards for a piece on whether there was a real Mrs. Smith who made Mrs. Smith's Pies. As it turned out, there was no Mrs. Smith.

"I obviously have a knack for getting on paper what a lot of people have thought and didn't realize they thought," Rooney once said. "And they say, 'Hey, yeah!' And they like that."

Careful with that firey rhetoric you may set the straw you carry with you on fire.

The lawyer is a mouthpiece, she very publicly strongly asked to be released from her confidentiality agreement as if she had some damning facts. Well, they said yes, put them out there. Or is it they can't make a buck on a story nobody no longer wants or were playing a chess game that got called?

Surely you have run businesses sometimes unless there is gross misconduct or negligence , giving someone a severance package is the human thing to do when you seperate them - Clean and beneficial to all.

As for Cain - let it out if he did do something - don't make half ass claims - prove it or shut up. End his career if he actually did do whatever it is the liberals are hinting at trying to assassinate him.

Liberals are right, if he did these things he is finished as a conservative. You see we have morals - The standards liberals have for conservatives are taken directly from conservatives themsleves, liberals could never apply the same standards to themselves. Well that is the liberal way right? Have no morals this way you can't possibly be immoral when you get caught lying about things like getting head in the Oval Office or running gay prostitution rings out of your house or on and on.
