Herman Cain Never Hit On State Senator Lori Klein -- and She's "Not an Unattractive Woman"
Question: What's Herman Cain's favorite pizza topping?
Answer: pussy, duh!
That's one of several jokes currently making the rounds on the Internet about the embattled GOP presidential candidate/former Godfather's Pizza CEO, who is currently reconsidering his run for the presidency amidst multiple allegations of sexual harassment made by several women.
Also giving us a brief LOL this afternoon is state Senator Lori Klein's awesome response to the latest allegations against Cain, whose Arizona campaign committee Klein chairs.
According to Klein -- who's best known for pointing a loaded gun at Arizona Republic reporter Richard Ruelas earlier this year -- she's known Cain for 12 years and he's "never been anything but a gentlemen - and I am not an unattractive woman."
You go, girl!
In fairness to the senator, click here to see some slightly more glamorous photos of her than the one we posted above.
Cain's decision to reconsider his bid for the White House comes the same day as reports that an Atlanta businesswoman, Ginger White, claims to have had a 13-year sexual affair with the candidate. More on the alleged affair here.
Klein went on to tell CBS News that if White's allegations against Cain are false, he should sue her for libel. She then further pimped Cain, a rookie politician, by saying that in politics "we want a virgin to do a hooker's job."
Given the seemingly endless sex-oriented allegations against Cain, perhaps a hooker reference is a bit ill-timed -- ay, senator?
