Cain Campaign: Allegations Part of ‘Smear Campaign’

Cain spokesman J.D. Gordon dismissed the sexual harassment allegations against Herman Cain yesterday, arguing that the Politico story lacked “even a sourced allegation.”

“We’ve seen this movie played out before: It’s a prominent conservative leader targeted by liberals just because they disagree with his politics,” Gordon told Fox News host Geraldo Rivera last night. “Mr. Cain deserves better than this.”

In response to repeated questions from Rivera about whether women who had alleged sexual harassment from Cain had received cash pay-outs, Gordon did not directly answer, ultimately referring the question to the National Restaurant Association.  Gordon called the story line a “smear campaign” against Cain.
