Aww look at the young couple…sounds like good ole Herman and Gloria Cain have got each others’ backs….
Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, who spent much of last week defending himself against decade-old allegations of sexual harassment and assault, says the ordeal has been harder on his wife than on himself, and he’s still “in it to win it.” Cain told the Fox News Channel’s “Geraldo At Large” that confronting the allegations has, for him, been “like I’m in the boxing match every day, throwing punches back,” but his wife Gloria, who has seen the dramatic accusations unfold in the media every day, “actually took it harder than I did.”
He said his wife had recovered from the shock and was “doing fine now.”
The former pizza restaurant magnate said colleagues and advisers had warned him that such controversies about political candidates were often harder on the families than the candidates themselves. In spite of a new poll by the Reuters news agency which shows the week of disaster management knocked 9 percentage points off of his favorability rating among Republicans – to 57 percent from 66 percent the previous week – Cain told Fox News he remains “in it to win it.”
“Far as we’re concerned, these allegations aren’t going anywhere,” he said. “I mean people might make up some more stuff. We are in it to win it.”
But there is another “Gloria” joining the party:
A new woman alleging sexual harassment by presidential hopeful Herman Cain will break her silence at a news conference with her powerhouse attorney Gloria Allred Monday afternoon in New York City, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. The embattled GOP nominee has admitted that several women who worked at the National Restaurant Association during his tenure as president of the organization received settlements. Politico has reported that the settlements were given because of sexual harassment allegations.
The woman, who will be the first to go public on Monday, sought Cain’s help with an employment issue and was allegedly sexually harassed by him. Allred and her client will discuss, in detail, what she alleges occurred with Cain.
Should be interesting…
