Conservative author and former education secretary William Bennett
says he's held his tongue long enough on Herman Cain and is publicly chiding him for ignoring what he calls "allegations that matter." Bennett writes in the National Review
it's time for Herman Cain to speak to the sexual harassment claims:
"If Herman Cain wants to be taken seriously as a public advocate for anything, never mind running for the chief executive and commander in chief of the most powerful and important and blessed country in the world, he needs to give a full press conference dedicated exclusively to this issue and these allegations.
I have watched long enough and held my tongue long enough to give him the benefit of the doubt, but can no longer say this is a witch hunt, “a lynching” to use his word, or any other euphemism. There are allegations out there that matter and they have stacked up. For we who led the charge against Bill Clinton on a number of related issues to continue to blame the media or other campaigns or say it simply doesn’t matter makes us the hypocrites as well."
