Letterman Presses Herman Cain on Sexual Harassment Allegations (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 19th 2011 1:45PM

David Letterman started off his 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) interview with Herman Cain by making fun of himself. "I'm no stranger to sexual scandal," he said, which drew a big chuckle from Cain. But then Letterman got serious about the sexual harassment allegations that have been leveled against Cain by several women, asking him if he would drop out of the race if they were proven true.

"One of two things will happen ... you'll be exonerated just like Justin Bieber ... or they will prevail and there will be somebody else coming forward" with documentation and more evidence. "Now will you resign if that's the case?" he asked.

Cain continued to deny that he had done anything wrong. "Let's be very clear about the allegations that have already been made. The reason that I went front and center in front of the media is that I knew there wasn't anything to it. There's no further documentation has come up. So we have moved on."

Then Letterman got even more incredulous. "So these statement are all false. All of these women are lying. They're all lying. They are all lying," he repeated.

"Did not happen. Did not happen. Yes, they are," Cain shot back.

"Four women, similar circumstances..." Letterman responded. "How did you get four?" Cain asked, giving Letterman an opening to punctuate the feisty exchange with humor. "Oh, I'm sorry, is it 9-9-9?"

The big difference is that in Lettermans case there was plenty of proof that it was all true, and he admitted to it.

In Cain's defense there has been no proof offered up. Until such time as that happens, the man is innocent.

Whether you like him or not that's the fact jack.

And of course we all know Letterman's "stuff" is unbiased political expertise.

What would that "stuff" be? The things his producers tell him to say?

You seriously don't notice how awkward he gets when he asks questions like this? Especially when he gets a good response from the guest?

He's out of his element when asking questions about such things. He should stick to stupid animal tricks.
