Rove Criticizes Cain for Perry Accusations

Many Republicans were unhappy to see Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain accusing the campaign of his opponent Rick Perry of telling Politico about sexual harassment accusations made against Cain by women who worked at the National Restaurant Association while he was chairman. Count Karl Rove as one of those who are miffed, Politico reports.

The Republican super strategist, who advised former President George W. Bush, told “Fox and Friends” that Cain had no evidence to back up his charges. And he said Cain was doing "exactly what [he is] accusing the media of doing."

Cain’s best strategy in dealing with the scandal would be to push the National Restaurant Association to release new information about the sexual harassment complaints lodged against him in the late 1990s, Rove said.

“The way to get it behind him is for the National Restaurant Association to take those reports which he says exonerate him and get the reports out," Rove said. "Lay out those reports, redact the names of the women, give them some privacy . . . He says those reports will confirm he did nothing wrong. Let's hope they do."

While Cain’s poll numbers haven’t suffered so far, Rove predicted that will happen during the next week as voters "digest this controversy." And he said the Perry camp handled Cain’s accusations well.
