GOP hopeful Herman Cain has not had a good couple weeks as far as Presidential campaigns go. After botching seemingly easy questions on Libya he’s been hit with a flurry of sexual allegations, the latest being a 13 year affair. Would be a little easier to dismiss the claim if Cain hadn’t admitted to paying the ‘destitute’ accuser cash? Did he mean to say prostitute?
“I heard this morning that he’s still saying he’s thinking about it. But the latest is that he was paying her. He was paying this woman because she was destitute,” Glenn said.
“In the release yesterday when he said he was reassessing his candidacy, he said first thing I want to do is say to you what I have said publicly, I deny those charges unequivocally. Second, or secondly, I have known this lady for a number of years. And thirdly, I’ve been attempting to help her financially because she was out of work and destitute, desperate,” Pat clarified.
“Are you sure you have the right word? Because prostitute and destitute sound alike,” Glenn joked.
“I feel sorry for his children and grandchildren quite honestly because whether he’s guilty or not guilty, look what’s happened to this man,” Glenn said, quickly adding that if he did it then he’s “the dumbest man alive.”
Pat and Glenn both wondered why Cain’s family, and more specifically his wife, had not yet come forward to support Herman Cain’s story that the woman was only a friend.
Glenn said, “If you’re still thinking about Herman Cain you have to make the judgment of, ‘Is he telling the truth.’ Because character does matter. That’s all there is. At this point that’s all you have left. Judge a man by the content of his character.”
