Three hours after a desperate fund-raising plea which blamed racist liberals for his own sex scandal, Herman Cain now says it was Texas Gov. Rick Perry that ratted him out.
The Cain campaign points to longtime GOP consultant Curt Anderson, who worked for Cain’s failed 2004 U.S. Senate bid and was debriefed on the harassment allegations by Cain himself. Anderson now works for Perry. And Chris Wilson, a former pollster for the restaurant association, said Wednesday he witnessed Cain’s alleged inappropriate behavior. He’s now involved with a pro-Perry super political action committee.
Both men deny leaking the story and the Perry aides says the first they learned about it was this week in the press. But Cain’s team isn’t buying it and demands an apology. “This is one of the actions in America that is the reason why people don’t get involved in politics,” Mark Block, chief of staff to Cain’s campaign, said in an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Special Report. “The actions of the Perry campaign are despicable.” “Rick Perry and his campaign owe Herman Cain and his family an apology,” Block said.
Oh, the hilarity. No retraction of the “racist liberals” claim, but suddenly Cain wants a fucking apology from Rick Perry. Stop, my sides! No, really. Stop.
