BREAKING: Cain responds to sex harassment allegation

Herman Cain's campaign headquarters has released a response to a story, broken this evening on Politico, that in the 1990s two female employees of the National Restaurant Association "complained to colleagues and senior association officials about inappropriate behavior by Cain," who at the time was head of the trade group.

Calling the story "thinly source allegations," Cain spokesman J.D. Gordon said: "Since Washington establishment critics haven't had much luck in attacking Mr. Cain's ideas to fix a bad economy and create jobs, they are trying to attack him in any way they can."  Gordon did not address any of the specific allegations in the report.  Asked for a more specific answer, the campaign did not provide details.

UPDATE: When this story broke on Geraldo's show, Ann Coulter blew a gasket and blamed liberals for releasing this information but I suspect it was released by either Romney's campaign or the Republican establishment (progressives). Cain is a huge threat to both because of his lead in the polls and they believe the nomination belongs to Romney. We don't want Romney! - Reggie
