http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/02/u...s-salary-in-severance-pay.html?pagewanted=all When a manager in my department got let go because of non-performance, he got a nice serverence package. They are common in many businesses. The slanderous accusers of Cain received SERVERENCE Pay, not settlement agreements. Meaning the company let them go and paid them their serverence pay like they would other fired employees. Of course the left leaning hack Politico said it a was a settlement agreement. That is a flat out mischaracterization. Then Politico said it was for six digits, when it was only $35K! The left must really be afraid of this guy to stoop to such slanderous methods! When my man comes out on top from this and check the latest polls, HE HAS!!! What are they going to toss at him next? Most likely kiddie porn allegations!
