    And so shouldn't his accusors, what say you guys?

    My personal opinion is that they should both take a lie detector....why? Well Cain can't prove he didn't do these things he is accused of and she can't prove he did do the things he is accused of.

    A lie detector can put an end to the circus real fast.

    If cain is found to fail it he is done
    If the woman is found to fail it he is ok.
    If both fail it he is screwed.
    If neither fail then cain continues to be guilty until proven innocent which is impossible to prove.

    Not like these things are completely reliable...

    I think it should be investigated... if nothing holds water, let it go... if there's smoke, follow it

    Simple to me

    I never did watch Jerry Springer but would really appreciate your opinion on my comments in the first post as I respect your opinion.

    How do they go about investigating it though? I just don't see where anyone can get evidence of the claim being made. That turns this into a media prosecution where the accused is guilty until proven innocent.

    Don't get me wrong if Cain IS innocent he has handled this whole thing in such a poor way that it still hurts him but how does either side actually prove their claims of guilt or innocence?

    Why is Romeny not being falsely accused with this type of crap?

    Becuase he has no history of abuse guys.

    The cases were breought LONG ago before anyone knew Cain would use the republican party like a cash machine.

    it would be a simple solution to the problem ...or at first it would seem so...remember you can only answer yes or no....there are no shades of gray....what man hasnt said something off colored or inappropriate to a woman...and i am not sure how reliable these tests are...seems to depend mostly on the person giving and interpreting the test results...

    then you have to question this....how far can you go in making a person make a statement....
    why not just give these tests to everyone? is it an invasion of your body.....to be wired up like a borg (love any chance to make that statement) ...probes are attached to you....well probe might be the wrong word...but then what if the tests conflict? then what? its a slippery slope at best.

    in reality you are not suppose to give 'evidence' against yourself now are you?

    who would control which questions are ask? i just dont think its as simple as it sounds...

    It could but at this point what else could Cain do to help himself, honestly?

    He already came out and denied it, what else could he do? (I take an issue with him saying he doesn't remember that blond lady either, that statement made me step back a bit)

    Cain wont take it because he said he needs a good reason to do so. There isnt and will never be a "good reason" to take it to Cain.

    I imagine Cain probably did it, I mean, every single one of the 5 women, the Republican pollster and the Conservative radio host cant ALL be lying.
