If you had the displeasure of watching Fox’ Hannity show last night you would have heard something disgusting that goes to the heart of why sexual harassment exists.
Dick Morris, a former Clinton adviser who has since done everything in his power to dog his former boss, was commenting on the newest Herman Cain sexual harassment revelation involving Sharon Bialek, who used to work for the National Restaurant Association’s education foundation when Cain was there.
She now claims Cain, the head of the NRA at the time and presumably in a position of power over many other women, put his hand under her skirt and also pushed her head towards his genitals. She didn’t report him at the time of the event, which she alleges happened more than a decade ago, but has now come out to tell her story during the Cain firestorm.
Morris isn’t buying any of her claims, which is his prerogative, but he joined the sleaze parade when he made this comment about Bialek: “I look forward to her spread in Playboy.”
