Herman Cain: Oh Wait Thats Right I DID Pay A Settlement For Sexual Harrasment. Want To Hear Me Sing?

Screw Halloween, today should have been called Christmas considering that Herman Cain made it s day of multiple gift giving by first giving no comment and then self-righteously denying that he knew about anything about a settlement that was reached after the claims of sexual harassment were made against him in the late 90’s.

Well it seems that Herman Cain DOES remember after all.  And after a day of histrionics and gospel singing has finally admitted  it.

From the Washington Post:

“My general counsel said this started out where she and her lawyer were demanding a huge financial settlement…I don’t remember a number…But then he said because there was no basis for this, we ended up settling for what would have been a termination settlement,” Cain said in the interview, as reported by the Washington Examiner. “Maybe three months’ salary. I don’t remember. It might have been two months. I do remember my general counsel saying we didn’t pay all of the money they demanded.”

BUT YOU WERE ACCUSED AND YOU DID SETTLE.

Maybe this is why Herman Cain admires Clarence Thomas so much?
