Over the weekend, the politics blog Politico dropped the bomb that Herman Cain, a Republican frontrunner for the presidential nomination, was accused of sexual harassment twice by women who later took pay-outs not to discuss the incidents. Politico claimed that when Cain headed the National Restaurant Association during the 1990s, two women complained to superiors about his behavior — innuendo, personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature, physical gestures that made the women uncomfortable — and eventually left their jobs with five-figure settlements.

On Tuesday, the lawyer for one of the accusers told The New York Times that she wants to speak out about the incident — but is bound by her non-disclosure agreement. Keep reading »

The political news website Politico has dropped the bombshell news that Herman Cain, a Republican frontrunner for the presidential nomination and kooky numerologist, was accused of sexual harassment twice by women who later took pay-outs not to talk about the incidents.

Based on the reports of a half-dozen sources, Politico claims that when Cain headed the National Restaurant Association during the 1990s, two women complained to colleagues and senior officals about his behavior and ultimately left their jobs with financial pay-outs. Cain has refused to talk about the accusations for the past 10 days. But when confronted by a reporter this weekend, he said he couldn’t comment “until I see some facts or some concrete evidence.” When he was repeatedly pressed, Cain turned it around on the reporter, asking, “Have you ever been accused of sexual harassment?”

Wait, what?

John Edwards might be the proud father of a newly married daughter, but he is still in trubs with the law for allegedly using $1 million in campaign funds to cover his affair with Rielle Hunter. A grand jury indicted Edwards this summer on six counts, including conspiracy, issuing false statements, and violating campaign contribution laws. If I were in that much trouble, I would probably keep my mouth shut. But Edwards’ legal team is using a different, uh, legal strategy. Keep reading »

“I think I was struck by my early travels, where one of the most common questions I kept being asked, especially in the audience of young people at universities and elsewhere, is: How could you work with President Obama? You ran against him. Because still in democracies, even ones that we think of as fairly mature, that was just a totally bizarre idea that two people who were political foes could ever end up working together. … And my answer always was: Yes, I mean, we ran hard against each other. He tried to beat me, I tried to beat him. But he won, then he asked me to work for him. And I said yes because we both love our country. So I think that that message resonated with a lot of people and, again, I would stress particularly young people.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on working alongside her former opponent, Barack Obama, in Washington. This quote is just one tidbit of the Q&A — mostly about foreign policy — that Hillary did with TIME‘s editor-in-chief. As I read their conversation, I was blown away by her intelligence and intellect. I highly, highly recommend you read it, too!  [TIME] Keep reading »

  • Breathe easy, everyone: Sarah Palin is not seeking the GOP nomination for president. In a statement released yesterday, Palin said, “As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.” Translation: I can make a hell of a lot more money writing books, appearing on Fox News, and doing public speaking gigs. [ABC News]
  • Speaking of Palin, one of her former handlers, Nicole Wallace, has written a novel about a mentally ill vice presidential candidate. “The idea of a mentally ill vice president who suffers in complete isolation was obviously sparked by the behaviors I witnessed by Sarah Palin,” Wallace told The Hill. “What if somebody who was ill-equipped for the office were to ascend to the presidency or vice presidency? What would they do? How long would it take for people to figure it out?” Oh, dear. [The Hill]
