Dear Commons Community,
The Herman Cain sexual harassment story got more legs yesterday when Herman Cain’s chief of staff, Mark Block, blamed Rick Perry’s campaign for leaking it to the press. More specifically, it was his belief that Curt Anderson — who worked on Cain’s unsuccessful bid for the U.S. Senate in 2004 and now serves as an adviser for Perry’s political operation — was behind the leak. Perry campaign spokesman Ray Sullivan denied the claim that the Texas governor’s campaign was involved in the sexual accusations landing in the headlines. Pointing to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s team, however, he said “I wouldn’t put it past them.”
In the meantime, it was reported that another (third) woman has also said that she was the victim of sexual harassment while employed for Herman Cain.
