Herman Cain threatens legal action even as sexual harassment story gets bigger and bigger
I think it's hilarious that, according to WaPo, the Herman Cain campaign is "considering legal action" against Politico over its report of sexual harassment allegations.
Obviously, it's just a lot of bluster, a way to try to deflect attention from the story that is sinking Cain.
And that story is getting bigger and bigger:
Herman Cain flatly denies the most serious allegation facing him – that he made an unwanted sexual advance toward a female employee at a work event – but POLITICO has learned new details making clear there were urgent discussions of the woman's accusations at top levels of the National Restaurant Association within hours of when the incident was alleged to have occurred.
The new details – which come from multiple sources independently familiar with the incident at a hotel during a restaurant association event in the late 1990s – put the woman's account even more sharply at odds with Cain's emphatic insistence in news media interviews this week that nothing inappropriate happened between the two.
And this is just one of the allegations. There are at least three -- and, one imagines, there could be many more.
