Herman Cain’s campaign has backed off on charges that Rick Perry’s campaign leaked information for his recent sexual harassment scandal.
Cain’s campaign had previously blamed Curt Anderson, a former Cain aide who now works for Perry for the leak, but retracted after Anderson denied leaking any information.
The New York Post reports:
Cain’s reversal was the latest in a series of 180-degree turns during the saga. Just a day earlier, Block told Fox News that “Rick Perry and his campaign owe Herman Cain and his family an apology,” while Cain himself said the Perry camp “stirred this up in order to discredit me.”
Cain’s troubles could mount today if an accuser who reportedly got a $45,000 settlement from the restaurant group after she’d complained about his behavior is permitted to tell what happened.
