Back in 1997, I had the great pleasure of being able to attend the annual National Restaurant Association convention. It was there that I feel that I may have been the target of unwanted sexual advances from Herman Cain. Here is what happened. On the last day of the convention, I approached Mr. Cain as he was chatting with some colleagues about some sort of official National Restaurant Association business. I approached Mr. Cain because, as the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, I figured that the man was going to smell like pizza. And boy, did he ever smell like pizza. It was glorious. I also was hoping that - as the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza - he may actually have some pizza on him. However, he did not. As I stood next to Mr. Cain - taking in his sausage and pepperoni natural aroma - he gently rubbed my backside and called me "handsome." I thought nothing of it at the time, as I was completely captivated by this hypnotic pizza smell that the man had. Now that I look back on it though, I believe that my rights may have been violated.
I have great sympathy for the other brave victims that have been coming forward with their stories of improper behavior on the part of Mr. Cain. I imagine that they also were captivated by his pizza smell and fell for its allure.
