Witness Says He Saw Cain Harassment...But He Can't Talk About It

I really don’t see why a disinterested third party would be legally bound to silence over something that he happened to see 12 years ago, involving an organization he didn’t work for, only to be allowed to nibble around its edges on a radio show now that it’s in the headlines. But here’s what he says.

Interviewed today on KTOK’s Mullins in the Morning, [Chris] Wilson, of Wilson-Perkins-Allen Opinion Research headquartered in Washington, D.C. explained he was a witness to the incident.  “I was the pollster at the National Restaurant Association when Herman Cain was head of it and I was around a couple of times when this happened and anyone who was involved with the NRA at the time, knew that this was gonna come up.”

Wilson described the woman as a low level staffer who was maybe two years out of college.  “This occurred at a restaurant in Crystal City (Virginia) and everybody was aware of it,” he continued.  “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.”

Wilson adds that if the accuser comes forward on the record, it’s the end of Cain’s campaign. That may well be for all we know; Cain has shifted his story too many times to give any reason to have much faith in what he’s saying.

Really, Cain should just change his name to Clinton and switch parties. Then he could easily survive credible allegations of actual rape with a cover-up to follow.
