Women for Cain; ‘Husbandless’ Accusers

Hey women of the Internet, there’s a new site where you can get your troll on: Women for Herman Cain.

Via TPM:

While Herman Cain weighs whether to stay in the race after being accused of carrying on a decade-plus affair, the campaign is looking to repair the damage his various alleged improprieties have caused with women supporters. His website just went live with a new “Women For Cain” section where female supporters can share their stories —and slam his accusers as “vindictive,” “jealous,” “unstable,” and “husbandless.”

The real prize, however, is a section — which appears to be curated by the campaign — featuring female supporters’ personal testimonials, many of which are brutal attacks against the women who have accused Cain of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and
infidelity.

I’d love to see the testimonials that don’t make the cut on the website, which sadly I don’t think will be around much longer. According to CNN Cain is meeting with his wife today to discuss his future in the race. I’m guessing he drops out officially by Monday.
