Subject:Week 7, Periodical Article

The New Yorkers columnist John Cassidy seems just as untrusting of Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain as almost all reporters from every side, and there is no question of why that is.

When news broke of Herman Cain's sexual harassment settlements earlier this week Cain claimed to have known nothing of the matter. Saying that settlements were made by his staff and he was not involved in the process. However when rumors surfaced that the gag order on the settlements might be lifted because Cain's representation had spoken publicly on the order (which can potentially legally can counter act such an agreement) Herman Cain suddenly remembered these interactions in great detail and even who was around when they occurred.

Today a third woman was discovered to have been involved in a separate case of sexual misconduct. She spoke out anonymously claiming that Cain spoke in an inappropriate manner to her at a business function. Will Cain remember this woman as well? If not now, in a few days perhaps? And will these allegations compromise his over 30% support in the polls? Only time will tell.

Week 7

Periodical

 

                On November 1, 2011, Ben Adleron discusses how Politico is trying to get information about Cain’s sexual harassment accusations. He says

 

“In a series of comments over the past 10 days, Cain and his campaign repeatedly declined to respond directly about whether he ever faced allegations of sexual harassment at the restaurant association. They have also declined to address questions about specific reporting confirming that there were financial settlements in two cases in which women leveled complaints…. Cain spokesman J.D. Gordon told POLITICO the candidate indicated to campaign officials that he was “vaguely familiar” with the charges and that the restaurant association’s general counsel had resolved the matter.”

Savanon talks about how “The diversionary tactics are getting tackier”. She also references “TPM’s Benjy Sarlin has compiled all the “Things That Don’t Affect Whether Herman Cain Sexually Harassed Two Women In the 1990s.””

http://odur.let.rug.nl/~usa/D/1651-1700/bacon_rebel/berke.htm Governor William Berkely on Bacon's Rebellion

(19 May 1676)


The declaration and Remonstrance of Sir William Berkeley his most sacred Majesties Governor and Captain Generall of Virginia

Sheweth That about the yeare 1660 CoIl. Mathews the then Governor dyed and then in consideration of the service I had don the Country, in defending them from, and destroying great numbers of the Indians, without the loss of three men, in all the time that warr lasted, and in contemplation of the equall and uncorrupt Justice I had distributed to all men, Not onely the Assembly but the unanimous votes of all the Country, concurred to make me Governor in a time, when if the Rebells in England had prevailed, I had certainely dyed for accepting itt, `twas Gentlemen an unfortunate Love, shewed to me, for to shew myselfe gratefull for this, I was willing to accept of this Governement againe, when by my gracious Kings favour I might have had other places much more proffitable, and lesse toylesome then this hath beene. Since that time that I returned into the Country, I call the great God Judge of all things in heaven and earth to wittness, that I doe not know of any thing relateive to this Country wherein I have acted unjustly, corruptly, or negligently in distributeing equall Justice to all men, and takeing all possible care to preserve their proprietys, and defend the from their barbarous enimies.

But for all this, perhapps I have erred in things I know not of, if I have I am soe conscious of humane frailty, and my owne defects, that I will not onely acknowledge them, but repent of, and amend them, and not like the Rebell Bacon persist in an error, onely because I have comitted itt, and tells me in diverse of his Letters that itt is not for his honnor to confess a fault, but I am of opinion that itt is onely for divells to be incorrigable, and men of principles like the worst of divells, and these he hath, if truth be reported to me, of diverse of his ex pressions of Atheisme, tending to take away all Religion and Laws.

And now I will state the Question betwixt me as a Governor and Mr. Bacon, and say that if any enimies should invade England, any Councellor Justice of peace or other inferiour officer, might raise what forces they could to protect his Majesties subjects, But I say againe, if after the Kings knowledge of this invasion, any the greatest peere of England, should raise forces against the kings prohibition this would be now, and ever was in all ages and Nations accompted treason. Nay I will goe further, that though this peere was truly zealous for the preservation of his King, and subjects, and had better and greater abillitys then all the rest of his fellow subjects, doe his King and Country service, yett if the King (though by false information) should suspect the contrary, itt were treason in this Noble peere to proceed after the King's prohibition, and for the truth of this I appeale to all the laws of England, and the Laws and constitutions of all other Nations in the world, And yett further itt is declaired by this Parliament that the takeing up Armes for the King and Parliament is treason, for the event shewed that what ever the pretence was to seduce ignorant and well affected people, yett the end was ruinous both to King and people, as this will be if not prevented, I doe therefore againe declair that Bacon proceedeing against all Laws of all Nations modern and ancient, is Rebell to his sacred Majesty and this Country, nor will I insist upon the sweareing of men to live and dye togeather, which is treason by the very words of the Law.

Now my friends I have lived 34 yeares amongst you, as uncorrupt and dilligent as ever Governor was, Bacon is a man of two yeares amongst you, his person and qualities unknowne to most of you, and to all men else, by any vertuous action that ever I heard of, And that very action which he boasts of, was sickly and fooleishly, and as I am informed treacherously carried to the dishonnor of the English Nation, yett in itt, he lost more men then I did in three yeares Warr, and by the grace of God will putt myselfe to the same daingers and troubles againe when I have brought Bacon to acknowledge the Laws are above him, and I doubt not but by God's assistance to have better success then Bacon hath had, the reason of my hopes are, that I will take Councell of wiser men then my selfe, but Mr. Bacon hath none about him, but the lowest of the people.

Yett I must further enlarge, that I cannot without your helpe, doe any thinge in this but dye in defence of my King, his laws, and subjects, which I will cheerefully doe, though alone I doe itt, and considering my poore fortunes, I can not leave my poore Wife and friends a better legacy then by dyeing for my King and you: for his sacred Majesty will easeily distinguish betweene Mr. Bacons actions and myne, and Kinges have long Armes, either to reward or punish.

Now after all this, if Mr. Bacon can shew one precedens or example where such actings in any Nation what ever, was approved of, I will mediate with the King and you for a pardon, and excuce for him, but I can shew him an hundred examples where brave and great men have beene putt to death for gaineing Victorys against the Comand of their Superiors.

Lastly my most assured friends I would have preserved those Indians that I knew were howerly att our mercy, to have beene our spyes and intelligence, to finde out our bloody enimies, but as soone as I had the least intelligence that they alsoe were trecherous enimies, I gave out Commissions to distrOy them all as the Commissions themselves will speake itt.

To conclude, I have don what was possible both to friend and enimy, have granted Mr. BacOn three pardons, which he hath scornefully rejected, suppoaseing himselfe stronger to subvert then I and you to maineteyne the Laws, by which onely and Gods assisting grace and mercy, all men mwt hope for peace and safety. I will add noe more though much more is still remaineing to Justifie me and condemne Mr. Bacon, but to desier that this declaration may be read in every County Court in the Country, and that a Court be presently called to doe itt, before the Assembly meet, That your approbation or dissattisfaction of this declaration may be knowne to all the Country, and the Kings Councell to whose most revered Judgments itt is submitted, Given the xxixth day of May, a happy day in the xxv"ith yeare of his most sacred Majesties Reigne, Charles the second, who God grant long and prosperously to Reigne, and lett all his good subjects say Amen.


Response:This Text is related to our in class discussions about Bacon's Rebellion. About a thousand Virginians rose (including former indentured servants, poor whites and slaves) because they resented Virginia Governor William Berkeley's friendly policies towards the Native Americans. When Berkeley refused to retaliate for a series of Indian attacks on frontier settlements, others took matters into their own hands, attacking Indians, chasing Berkeley from Jamestown, Virginia, and torching the capital.

http://www.tnr.com/article/the-permanent-campaign/96901/herman-cain-harassment-allegations

http://www.nationalreview.com/media-blog/281726/rush-cains-alleged-sexual-harassment-nathaniel-botwinick

 

The scandal involving Herman Cain’s bygone settlement of sexual harassment allegations have been blasted all over the media. Many writers and broadcasters have reported their different opinions and views on the subject. Some think that this scandal has completely damaged his campaign, but there are others who would beg to differ. Ed Kilgore, in his article from The New Republic, How Cain’s Sex Scandal Will Help His Candidacy, presented the argument that Cain will only use the allegations to strengthen his campaign by taking on the stance of a “victim of a politically, and perhaps racially, motivated smear.”  He found the whole situation to be predictable due to the fact that Clarence Thomas had a similar thing happen to him when he was nominated for the Supreme Court. Kilgore wrote on David Weigel of Slate trying to weed out the idea that a person can compare Cain’s situation with Thomas’. When Thomas was accused, it was not until he had been assigned for the Supreme Court that the woman, Anita Hill, brought forth her allegations. In a different manner, “Cain’s accusers came forward…when he was nothing more than the president of a prominent trade association.” However, like Thomas, Cain has played the ‘“race card,”’ where liberals cannot thoroughly defeat Cain’s testimony without seeming to uncover “a deep…unsavory hypocrisy…about race.” In doing this, he can appeal to the people senses that these allegations are nothing more than trumped up charges by “secretly racist white liberals.” Kilgore stuck firmly to the belief that the sex scandal would help Cain’s candidacy and, although his reasoning may just be his opinions and not fully accurate, his beliefs may not be empty. Cain’s presidential campaign has raised an enormous amount of money since the scandal has come into play.  

            There is no doubt that there are those who would have Herman Cain fail and lose the candidacy. He was attacked even from the very beginning, especially during the presidential debates, where his rivals targeted him. Nathaniel Botwinick, in his article, Rush on Cain’s Alleged Sexual Harassment, from The National Review, reported on Rush Limbaugh broadcasting on the Herman Cain scandal. As Rush Limbaugh stated it, ‘“Herman Cain is obviously making some people nervous for this kind of thing to happen.”’ From the looks of things and how the scandal has not fatally damaged Cain’s campaign, they will have to try a little harder next time if they want to keep this presidential candidate down.
