As we near day three of the Herman Cain sex scandal, one of the alleged victims reportedly wants to come forward. The lawyer for one of the woman who accused the GOP frontrunner of sexual harassment confirmed her desire to speak out, but noted the client is currently bound by a confidentiality agreement. Unless that get lifted, she’s allowed to say zilch.
Cain denied any wrong-doing. But, he’s got another scandal to worry about.
Questions over alleged campaign finance violations haven’t received as much attention, but it carries the potential to tarnish the campaign.
Cain told a conservative radio host today he authorized a “full investigation” into whether his campaign illegally took nearly $40,000 from a non-profit co-founded by Cain’s chief of staff Mark Block (the same guy smoking in his ad).
“If there were any improprieties, we will go back and amend the FEC report,” Cain said. “I will make sure that we let you know exactly what we found out and, if there are any improprieties, we will correct them.”
It’s not all shabby for the Cain camp — turns out scandals have been good for business. The campaign said it had its best online fundraising day yet, pulling in more than $400,000 in a 24-hour period.
