Over the weekend, Republican presidential pizzanaut Herman Cain made clear to reporters that he was moving on, and would refuse to answer any more questions regarding his growing sexual harassment scandal.
"Don’t even go there," Cain said when reporters asked him about the story after an issues forum with Newt Gingrich in Texas. "We are getting back on message," Cain said flatly.
Good for him. And in fact, with today's public statement from a second accuser, Sharon Bialek, I'm guessing the press will be happy to stop questioning Cain about allegations of sexual harassment... preferring instead to focus on these new allegations of sexual assault:
"He suddenly reached over and put his hand on my leg...under my skirt and reached for my genitals," she said. Bialek says Cain tried to pull her head toward his crotch.
Yikes. And to think, Republicans impeached President Bill Clinton over a consensual blowjob.
Too bad. Cain was never going to win the Republican nomination, but for a while there it looked like an infatuated Mitt Romney might look to Cain to add a little color to his ticket. And that would've been a helluva lot more fun (and beatable) than dour, teabagging Sen. Marco Rubio (R-North Cuba).
