Cain Harassment Claims Off-Limits in Debate

Given Gingrich's romantic history, this is peace by mutually assured destruction. The tea party organizers of tonights two-man debate have declared the sexual harassment claims against Herman Cain off limits, and Newt Gingrich's campaign agreed. The allegations received a further boost yesterday when the lawyer for one of the women accusing Cain said the GOP candidate wasn't telling the truth about “several instances” of harassment during the 1990s. The debate will pit Gingrich against Cain in a 90-minute Lincoln-Douglas debate moderated by U.S. Rep Steve King of Iowa.
