    Prosperity USA was owned and run by Wisconsin political operatives Mark Block and Linda Hansen, Cain's current chief of staff and deputy chief of staff, respectively.

    Election law experts say the transactions raise a host of questions for the private organization, which billed itself as a tax-exempt nonprofit, and the Cain team.

    He (Mark Block) is best known in the state for his role as campaign manager for former state Supreme Court Justice Jon Wilcox in 1997. Accused of election law violations, Block settled the case by agreeing to pay a $15,000 fine and to stay out of Wisconsin politics for three years.


    What's the Cain catch phrase again?

    Oh yeah, I remember.......

    "Let Mark be Mark."

    Apparently so.

    Funny how everyone's all incensed that ACORN, a defunct organization, might have given some money to some street people at OWS but no one wants to talk about a huge corporation, The Koch Brothers, bankrolling (possibly illegally) a presidental bid.

    Not only is Cain's campaign not denying any of this - Cain actually got up on a stage today, announced how "proud" he is to be associated with them and then proclaimed himself the Koch Brother's "brother by another mother,"

    So what is it about Cain's brown skin that makes you hate and fear him so much?

    At this point I can only assume you have no interest in an honest answer and are merely harrassing other posters.

    Maybe someone will notice and put a stop to it.

    Cain flip-lops by the hour, seems to be pretty dishonest and is shady as all hell. NOT a guy I'd like to have full access to the launch codes.


    The vetting of this guy has nothing to do with the fact that hes a wealthy black republican, and everything to do with the fact that the more we look into him, the more I'm convinced he'd probably launch nukes at Mexico.

    I'd have no problem with honest answer once you come to the honest realization that a lot of the hatred coming from the left directed at Cain is race based. Nothing the left hates more than an uppity colored boy who dares stray off the liberal massa's plantation!

    Cain is a slug ... nothing new here.
    However - Obama rewrote the book on illegal donations and nothing was done.
    Congress can close the loopholes ... but will they?
    Are the members here attacking Cain on this topic the same who were silent on Obama's illegal donations?

    I'm tearing a page out of Mrs. PF's playbook here ... deflection 101.
