It’s been 24 hours since we learned who Karen Kraushaar is and the Cain people are going into full attack. Let’s start off with a bald face lie being told by Cain’s campaign manager, Mark Block:
Herman Cain campaign manager Mark Block, in an appearance with Sean Hannity on Fox News just now, insisted that a relative of the second woman to publicly accuse the candidate of sexual harassment in the 1990s works at POLITICO.
"Her son works at POLITICO," Block said of Karen Kraushaar, whose name POLITICO printed earlier today after other media outlets made her identity public.
"I've been hearing that all day - you've confirmed that now?" Hannity asked.
"We've confirmed that he does indeed work at POLITICO and that's his mother, yes," said Block.
Block appeared to be referring to former POLITICO reporter Josh Kraushaar, who left for another outlet, National Journal, in 2010.
Josh Kraushaar tweeted earlier in the day, apparently after getting questions, that he's in fact not related to Karen Kraushaar, and simply has the same last name.
A flat out lie being told by Cain’s people and they keep pushing it. But it also doesn’t stop there. Here’s a screen shot of a post on Herman Cain’s PAC:
