Cain Spokesman Gives Stammering Response, Denies Report

On FOX News' Sunday night edition of "Geraldo at Large," Cain spokesman JD Gordon responded to a claim that the presidential candidate sexually harassed two women. This stems from a loosely-sourced story from Politico.

"These are thin allegations, this is non-sourced, right now we’re trying to put this in perspective for you that this is not even an -- sourced allegation," Gordon told Geraldo. Geraldo of course was not satisfied with the answer and pressed him for a yes or no answer. Mr. Gordon would not give one.

Last night Gordon released a statement on behalf of the campaign:

Dredging up thinly sourced allegations stemming from Mr. Cain’s tenure as the Chief Executive Officer at the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, political trade press are now casting aspersions on his character and spreading rumors that never stood up to the facts,” Gordon said in the statement. "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."
