Okay, that's like saying the sun is hot.
Mark Block, the smokin' dude in Herman Cain's ridiculous political YouTube ad, appeared on FAUX NOOZ and lied about Karen Kraushaar's son, [Karen Kraushaar, 55, is a registered Republican who works at the Treasury Department. Through her attorney, she has described the alleged harassment as "a series of inappropriate behaviors and unwanted advances from the CEO," NPR reported. She reportedly received a payout in 1999.] claiming Josh Kraushaar worked for Politico, the blog that broke the Herman Cain sexual harassment story.
Here is what Block claimed on FAUX NOOZ:
"Mark Block, Cain's chief-of-staff, spoke to Sean Hannity on Fox News Tuesday, and wrongly claimed that the son of a woman who accused Cain of sexual harassment in the 1990s works at POLITICO.
'At the press conference it was brought up that Karen Kraushaar had come out as one of the women, so we've come to find out that her son works at POLITICO, the organization that originally put this story out,' Block said."
When Hannity asked if the information about Kraushaar's "son" was confirmed, Block said: "We've confirmed that he does indeed work at POLITICO and that's his mother, yes."
Except Block, Cain's chief of staff, was either lying or incompetent because he named the wrong guy.
This is what Josh Kraushaar, the guy Block accused, had to say:
"Kraushaar acknowledged working at POLITICO from 2007 to 2010, but said he had been at the National Journal for over a year. His Twitter bio lists his current job title as the executive editor of the publication's blog The Hotline. He's also not related to Cain's accuser.
'For a presidential spokesman to go on TV and make up blatant falsehoods doesn't speak well for his boss, either,' Kraushaar wrote.
Kraushaar did manage to keep his sense of humor about the whole situation. 'The only positive benefit about being smeared by Mark Block on Hannity is I'm getting 100 new Twitter followers a minute.' "
So there we have it. More incompetence from the man who wants to be president. Is this another joke, Mr. Cain? Or is it a continuing side-show where, it appears, your campaign for the GOP presidential nomination is nothing more than street theater and not a serious effort to win the nomination.
But wait, Cain is leading the GOP polls. Imagine that. A pizza marketer who tells us that his policies are jokes, whose chief of staff names the wrong guy on a national cabal teevee station as one of his accuser's sons, and who now has, how many now? 4? 5? women accusing him of improper sexual advances.
Sounds like the perfect candidate to lead the GOP into next year's presidential election.
