AZ state senator: Herman Cain has not sexually harassed me, even though I am attractive
Edited on Wed Nov-30-11 10:13 AM by Douglas Carpenter


One (crazy) woman's defense of the scandal-plagued candidate

By Alex Pareene


Arizona state Senator Lori Klein, who has never been harassed by Herman Cain (Credit: YouTube/Fox News)

Arizona state Sen. Lori Klein is Herman Cains Arizona state chairman and also the sinking candidates single best asset. If I were him, Id immediately start booking Klein on cable TV as a campaign surrogate, because her impressive spin work is right now being sadly wasted.

Lori Klein, an Arizona state Senator and Cains Arizona state chairman, told CBS News she stands by Cain.

Says she has known him for 12 years and hes never been anything but a gentlemen and I am not an unattractive woman.

snip:

Klein is, of course, an expert in what constitutes appropriate, professional behavior among adults, as she proved when she took a loaded gun out of her purse and pointed it at a newspaper reporter who was attempting to interview her in a state Senate lounge.

Lori Klein is a rising star in the GOP. Remember her name. Or shell shoot you, for being a Mexican.

2. Really poor logic.
Edited on Wed Nov-30-11 10:16 AM by Ilsa
Does she really think people will believe Cain isn't a serial harasser because he exercised judgment with a woman who packs?

BTW, Cain hasnt harassed me either. Doesn't mean I believe him.

7. It's a repeat of Cain's argument that there are so many
more women he has NOT harassed! :rofl:

4. Weird on so many levels.
"Herman Cain has not sexually harassed me, even though I am attractive."



BTW She is AZ state chair for Cain.


As news of Herman Cains alleged affair with Ginger White pushes the metaphorical fork the rest of the way into Cains presidential campaign, the embattled
former frontrunner still has his defenders. State Sen. Lori Klein (R-AZ), Cains Arizona state campaign chair, may have put the epitaph on Cains political
tombstone today when she told CBS News that, in politics, we want a virgin to do a hookers job.

6. For one, she is not attractive
For another thing, harasses do not pick attractive women, for the very reason that their victims will not be believed.

People need to get the difference between sex and harassment the same way they need to get the difference between sex and rape.

It is about control, not about attractiveness. It is not real sexual attraction. It is about having power over somebody.

8. Well, if that's her - she's NOT attractive
and is she jealous that he hasn't hit on her?

10. That's Lori Klein alright.
She's my State Senator. She's more right-wing than Sheriff Joe Arpaio and EX-Senate President Russell Pearce. And she's as crazy as she looks.

12. If you don't agree that she's attractive, she'll SHOOT you!


Arizona sen. literary aims gun at reporter

Arizona State Sen. Lori Klein (R), a gun-rights champion, keeps a loaded raspberry-pink handgun in her purse, and during an interview with Arizona Republic reporter Richard Ruelas, she took it out and pointed it at him.

"Oh, it's so cute," Klein said, before aiming the gun at Ruelas's chest to show off the red beam of the laser sight. Klein's gun, a .380 Ruger, has no safety, but the senator assured Ruelas that he wasn't in danger.

17. And the search goes on
FOX News will continue a global search for attractive women that Cain has not harassed.

Hint: There really is no need to check Republican members of the Arizona State Legislature.

19. Give him a few few minutes, Senator
I'm sure he'll call you and set an appointment so you can be properly harassed by him. :puke:
