Moments ago, Herman Cain — whose campaign has been dogged by allegations of sexual harassment first unearthed and reported by Politico about two months ago — announced that he is suspending his campaign “because of these false and unproved accusations” that have inflicted a “tremendous painful price on my family.”
With his wife Gloria standing behind him and cheering him on, Cain said the accusations about his infidelity and harassment are being “spinned in the media,” and “that spin hurts.” “I am at peace with my wife, and she is at peace with me!” Cain insisted.
Cain added that the accusations have cast a “cloud of doubt over me and this campaign” and were distracting from his ability to present solutions to the American public. Watch it:
Cain also announced that he is unveiling TheCainSolutions.com to continue his advocacy for his regressive 9-9-9 tax plan, among other things. The site currently has no solutions on it and only contains an email sign-up form.
Cain said, “I will make an endorsement in the near future.” And he concluded his campaign by again quoting from the Pokemon movie: “Life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it’s never easy when there’s so much on the line.”
