Uh Oh...It looks like Uncle Herman may be getting caught in a lie.  After he went on Fox and emphatically denied he ever sexual harrassed anyone; information about a cash settlement was brought to the forefront.  Now in all fairness, just becuse a person settles out of court does not mean they are admitting culpability.  It may just mean they don't want the case to go any further because the cost is very high.  But with that being said, for Uncle Herman to go on and say that if a settlement was paid he didn't know anything about even though he was the head of the National Restuarant Association.  Now that is something I find very hard to believe.
Via NBC:

NBC News has confirmed that one woman received a settlement from the National Restaurant Association after complaining about inappropriate sexual conduct by Herman Cain.

NBC News is not disclosing the name of the woman nor characterizing who she is.

Cain denied the allegations, saying on FOX this morning he was "falsely accused." "I have never sexually harassed anyone, anyone," he said, "and absolutely, these are false accusations."

Despite being the chief executive officer of the National Restaurant Association, he said he was unaware of any settlement with the accusers, though he didn't deny it.

"If the restaurant association did a settlement, I wasn't even aware of it," he claimed, "and I hope it wasn't for much. If there was a settlement, it was handled by some of the other officers at the restaurant association."

So do we have another Clarence Thomas on our hands or is Herman Cain in describing this matter as a 'witch hunt'?
