There is something about the allegations that are being made against Herman Cain that just really bug me as a voter. Certainly Mr. Cain deserves better, but do we, as voters, not deserve better as well? Should the accusers who come forward not be required to come forward with proof. Media should refuse to carry the charges without proof!
Cain has said that his lawyers have requested the phone records from the 61 calls that she says she made to him. I hope these will be made public. As a potential Cain voter, I think I deserve the right to know if the allegations are true or false. The same applies to the other accusations made earlier. The women should offer proof or recant their stories with an apology.
Is there any way to apply public pressure in situations like these? I certainly do not know a way, but there should be some path for a decent man to continue his campaign untarnished if he is innocent. Aren’t Americans above condemning a person as ‘guilty until proven innocent’?
