Former NRA Pollster: If Cain Accuser Allowed to Speak, Could ‘End ... Campaign’

by Katrina Trinko

An Oklahoma political consultant said in a radio interview this morning that he had witnessed Herman Cain’s interactions with the woman who made the sexual harassment claims and predicted that if the woman is allowed to speak, it would “be the end of his campaign.”

Chris Wilson, who worked as a pollster at the National Restaurant Association during the time, told radio station KTOK that “This occurred at a restaurant in Crystal City (in Arlington,Virginia) and everybody was aware of it. It was only a matter of time because so many people were aware of what took place, so many people were aware of her situation, the fact she left—everybody knew with the campaign that this would eventually come up.”

“If she talks about it, I think it’ll be the end of his campaign,” Wilson added.

UPDATE: Wilson is working for a pro-Perry super PAC now, and is a Perry supporter, according to Politico.

UPDATE II: Weekly Standard reports that Wilson denies he was the source of the leaks to Politico. Also, to be precise, Wilson’s firm is working for a pro-Perry super PAC.
