Cain Blames Forbes Magazine for Concluding Perry Was Source of Harassment Leak
Here’s yet another reason you shouldn’t vote for Cain - his campaign doesn’t accept responsibility, which is an indicator that he never does either. So now we have a circular finger-pointing squad of GOP candidates — and even ex candidates if you count Forbes as having once run.
Herman Cain said Forbes Magazine - and not his campaign - was responsible for concluding that Rick Perry’s campaign leaked the story of sexual harassment allegations during Cain’s tenure as the president of the National Restaurant Association.
“A reporter did this research and came up with these facts, we didn’t,” Cain said Thursday on Sean Hannity’s radio show. “That was the reporter that wrote the report for Forbes.”
But despite adamant denials from the Perry camp, Cain said he still doesn’t “see any other way this could have come out.”
The Forbes article, headlined “Cain Says Perry Camp Behind Sex Harassment Leak,” quoted the candidate as saying that he told former staffer Curt Anderson, now a consultant for the Perry campaign, about the allegations. But Cain is not quoted specifically accusing Anderson of being the leak.
The Cain campaign quickly seized on the article Wednesday night, seemingly validating Forbes’ reporting that Cain was laying blame at Perry’s feet.
