Letter to the editor:

Cain situation bears scrutiny

Robert Kessler, a reader who supports Herman Cain, in his Saturday letter to the editor wants us to give Cain the benefit of the doubt when it comes to his sexual harassment claims by three women. The first woman who accused him was given a reported $45,000, and as part of the agreement had to sign a confidentiality statement. The second got a year’s salary, and also had to sign a confidentiality agreement.

Now, a claim by one woman might be ignored, but three? And two who we know of had to sign confidentiality agreements. Why the secrecy? Let’s watch as this story unfolds; if these claims can be proven, then I doubt if many Americans would want a man with this shameful history in the White House.
