HERMAN CAIN SUBJECT OF HATCHET JOB ACCORDING TO NRA BOARD CHAIRMAN
Fassler stated that as a board chairman he would have been not only fully informed about the situation but if any supposed payout was provided the board would have had to approve it. He also stated that the accuser being given a severance pay was not uncommon not only for the NRA nor any corporate entity. Since it was a severance in what he calls a pittance amount, it was not necessary for the board to be informed and it would have been normal practice in a situation of baseless claims.
Fassler went on to state that Cain was an excellent CEO whose reputation and integrity was unquestionable and his business savvy was far superior to anyone he has known. If there was any bases in the accusation, again an investigation proved they were baseless, it would have been completely out of character with Cain.
In a related story GOP candidate Newt Gingrich places the circus atmosphere over this supposed scandal squarely on the media. Gingrich stated that the media should be concentrating on Cains solid tax plan and his stance on the issues rather than this hyped up scandal that is feeding the media frenzy.
Once again polling is showing voters see though the hype and an obvious political witch hunt as a Rasmussen poll taken after the false accusations hit the news has Herman Cain with a solid lead among likely voters at 26% over Romney at 23% and Gingrich with 15% all other candidates are below 10%. Voters understand a baseless political attack when they see one and Cain is rising above the fray and staying steady in his quest for the GOP nomination and The White House. All this supposed scandal is doing is taking the spotlight of the failure of Obama and the necessity to defeat him and save our country.
