    That's true. Republicans, like you, cared about about the charges againt Clinton; they don't care about the charges against Cain. :)

    Clinton was convicted of rape?

    Thanks for demonstrating the hypocrisy harry alluded to in this thread.

    Cain was convicted of harassment or "gestures"?

    Both were accused, I think.

    exactly

    (btw, the accusations re. Cain are more than gestures -- but I'm aware that was 13's word, not yours)

    Clinton and the Kennedy's made it OK, that why NOBODY should care, even The Feminist Movement didn't seem to care what The Kennedy's or Clinton did to women so now I guess it's OK.

    Why isn't The Black Community, Jessie and Al defending Cain, it's a god damn sin what the Left Wing Democrat Media is doing to this poor Black Man, it's a f-cking disgrace, blatant cruel unforgiving Racism.

    No he was accused by a woman who came forward to make the accusation, he did plead No Contest and gave up his law license for exposing himself to P Jones and was also accused by A former Miss America of sexual assault and of course was accused of groping K Willey. Along with other accusations.

    and you believe and care about those accusations because Clinton was a dem, and you don't believe and don't care about the allegations against Cain because he's a pubbie and your favorite

    The accusations have been sexual harassment. Two of them actually filed charges with their employer. That's proven.

    One other was sexual harassment.

    A fourth came out today and claims she was propositioned and sexually groped.

    None of them are proven, no. But there's something to be said for volume.

    And there's still a long way to go.

    And Mr. Cain, much like Mr. Weiner, seems to be intent on "not talking about it." anymore.

    We all know what happened to Mr. Weiner.

    And how happy his detractors were when it happened.

    Oh - and now the IRS is being asked to investigate charges that illegal funds have been being used to pay for private jets and computers.

    2 are bound by NDAs, 1 is named Bialek or something like that, not sure about the 4th

    What I've read has included intimidation re existing and potential jobs as well as groping and other physical contact.

    But why does it matter to you? You're not going to believe any of it or care about it, all because of the little "R."

    If there are NDA's what's the source of what you are reading?

    Why -- are you denying that the charges existed? Because that's not in question anymore, despite Cain's initial denials.

    There were 2 charges that were settled. As far as I know, that is no longer in question.

    who revealed their existence? Not sure -- depends in part on who you ask. Some are blaming Romney, some are blaming Dems.

    I haven't read many details at all, and I'm not sure I've read any about the cases that were settled.

    right... I don't view that as "many details."

    edit: and most or all of what I wrote has been about the 2 allegations that weren't settled

    I'd like to see anything that falls below the Misdemeanor level disappear. I'd really rather this guy spend his free time learning how to conduct foreign policy. The President simply has to know why the Jews and Arabs don't see eye to eye and a bunch of other stuff. While they're at it they can check on internal stuff like how a bill becomes a law. I'm not happy with insulting the man this way; but he has shown a fundamental disinterest in what the Constitution says the President is supposed to do. I'm much more concerned about his Uzbekibekistan comment than I am concerned about the possibility he made some sort of sex gesture towards some woman in 1985.

    I don't think there is a high level of risk that he will become POTUS.
