Cain says he has spoken his last word on sexual harassment cases

Interesting strategy. Let’s see how this plays out in the real world.

A combative Herman Cain defied his staff and commented on the sexual harassment allegations that have been dogging his candidacy for nearly a week, telling media that “everything had been answered.”

After a generally cordial and policy-filled debate between Cain and fellow Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, the former businessman took questions from reporters during a press conference in which event organizers told reporters the focus needed to be entitlement spending.

“Don’t even go there,” Cain told a reporter who began asking about the harassment allegations. Cain then asked his chief of staff, Mark Block, to deliver the reporter a copy of the “journalistic code of ethics.”

NOTE FROM JOHN: Excuse me. You apparently have numerous women who allege that the lead GOP presidential candidate harassed them on the job. It is absolutely a journalist’s responsibility to report this story and get to the bottom of it. This isn’t some funny little sex-scapade Herman Cain had – i.e., it’s not like the media is reporting on Herman Cain’s favorite brand of condom. We’re talking the sexual harassment of women. We’re talking about what kind of corporate manager Herman Cain is, and it is Herman Cain who said his corporate management skills are the number one reason we should choose him as our next president. Americans have a right to know, and journalists have a duty to find out, what kind of CEO was Hermain Cain. Cain made his CEO experience relevant to his campaign. He can’t now demand that we ignore the bad parts.
