Herman Cain Jokes About Anita Hill At Campaign Event

Filed by KOSU News in Politics.
November 11, 2011

Herman Cain will never be accused of becoming more circumspect in the aftermath of the sexual harassment charges against him by several women.

When someone in a group of people at a Michigan campaign event told Cain, jokingly, that he heard that Anita Hill was going to be the latest woman to come forward, Cain doubled over in laughter. Then when he straightened up, he said:

“Is she going to endorse me?”

Watch for yourself:

It was Hill, of course, who accused Justice Clarence Thomas during his 1991 Senate confirmation hearings of sexually harassing her. Thomas famously accused her and his critics of a “high-tech lynching”, a charge Cain’s supporters have borrowed. [Copyright 2011 National Public Radio]
