Cain Pulls Ahead
Republican presidential hopeful and Godfather’s Pizza mogul Herman Cain has been facing hoards of negative media attention for alleged sexual harassment complaints and a cover-up that included hush money of more than $30,000. Cain continues to poll very well with his conservative base and is beating former frontrunner, Mitt Romney. Somehow, despite allegations of sexual misconduct and bribery, Cain continues to woo Republicans. The allegations occurred while Cain was married to his wife of more than 30 years. Cain claims he supports ‘traditional marriage’ and says gay marriage would threaten the very fabric of society.

Perhaps that makes sense, if the speed of her divorce reflects a reduced commitment to the marriage.” Somehow, it is the support for gay marriage that causes divorce.
