I have been reluctant to pile on Cain in a jocular manner about the sexual harassment charges. All sexual harassment claims should be taken very seriously. It takes incredible bravery for any sexual assault victim to step forward and endure embarrassment and humiliation as bad or worse than the original offense. Still, although false accusations are rare, they do exist. The Duke Lacrosse players may have been sexist, privileged jerks but they weren’t rapists. They also were violated in a repulsive manner and may never fully heal.
However, with Cain’s erratic defense and now that he has attacked his self-identified accuser with such insensitivity to the complex dynamics of sexual assault reporting, pile on I will. – Iron Filing
