Herman Cain to appear with Sean Hannity event at Cobb Energy Centre

Erstwhile presidential candidate Herman Cain will appear as a “special guest” at Sean Hannity’s Holiday Concert Salute to the Troops, organizers have announced.

Cain, beset with allegations of an adulterous affair by Atlanta businesswoman Ginger White and sexual harassment claims by several women, has kept a low profile since “suspending” his campaign earlier this month.

The event is at 7 p.m. Dec. 18 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.

Previously announced guests include comic Jeff Foxworthy and Marine Lt. Col. turned Fox News commentator Oliver North. Christian recording artist Michael W. Smith is on the roster as well.

Tickets range from $44 to $150 and, according to organizers, the event “will help benefit the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund, designated for the education of children of U.S. service members who have been killed or permanently disabled in an operational mission or training accident. Proceeds donated to the Scholarship Fund aid greatly in this effort to assist hundreds of families who have lost loved ones while they were protecting and defending the nation.”

Cain’s Twitter feed hasn’t been too active since he bowed out of the race. He did tweet a link to a note to supporters, titled “Brokenhearted, but not broken” in which he strikes an incredulous tone regarding the allegations of impropriety.

“Me, a womanizer? I would never have thought they’d come up with that one,” he wrote.

Yesterday his feed included one jauntily worded post: “I will be on Hannity tonight at 9 p. m. Eastern (time)! Tune in!”

Prove this!

I wonder who you will place the Blame on when NObama as you say is out of office. You people cry and whine like new born babies no matter who is in the office. You whined like infants when George W was in there, when Clinton was in there, When the first Bush was in there. and now with Obama. STFU already..If you dont like the President take your go live in IRaq or IRAN..better still get the hell out of the USA and go live Europe. You wont be missed.

If Hannity had a set on him, he’d tell Cain ” You’re a good American, but a horrible husband.”

Actually Ellen the last allegation was from a woman as black as the night itself.

They’re all liars just the same to me. Doesn’t make any difference.

It’s almost irrelevant whether he was sleeping with Ginger White; he was giving her money and he didn’t tell his wife. Huge deception. And he acts like butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth. Forget it, dude, learn some shame, and let go of the spotlight.

How do you know that Susan didn’t vote for McCain? She very well could be a Republican, better yet and Independent which Republicans need to be swoozing up to!

Can you prove that Herman is not guilty. Seems like he backed out of the media once that 13 year affair came up. That speaks GUILTY!

When Bill Clinton appears at a function, do you also list all of the allegations AND his admitted affairs? Do you call him the disgraced impeached president? Ha!! No, you don’t.

Hannity is a dumb cluck. I wonder if he even knows who Herman “The Sperman” Cain is. They should try to get that mental midget Rick Perry on board too. You know the incompetent cretin who recently thought that Solyndra (the company that lost all the money they were loaned by the government) was actually a country. That way they’d have have a trifecta of clinical morons.

Rest assured, he ain’t doing it out of the kindness of his heart. There’s a check with his name on it. Sure, Sean acts like he can get all of these folk together for a rocking good time because they are salt of the earth buddies, but you can’t pay rent on friendship alone.

I support the troops, and want to bring them all home, but Hannity is an idiot and a tool. I hope no one shows up to this Fox News hate fest and instead donates to the USO or another cause that’s helping our soldiers abroad and at home.

I was told by a very reliable source that “Handy” Herman Cain was seen dining @ the Panola Road/ I-20 Waffle House last night (3:15 AM) with former Atlanta “celebrity” Virginia Gunn.

Im amazed at all the posts of ladies that actually believe the Ginger White allegations. She claimed to be having an affair with him even back when he was in the hospital with cancer. haha! I guess news headlines equal truth nowadays.

Yes! Don’t let the Hermanator’s Book Tour stop! Sorry, libs, but you cannot derail the profit model of the Cain Train. The Hermacain is going to keep collecting donations. The Hermanatrix is going to keep selling books. Just because he gave some woman the Hermapes doesn’t mean he has to stop accepting donations! OK!

I like the story I read last week when Ginger said she was making out her grocery list while having sex with Uncle Herman. OUCH!! Hey, 15 yards penality, hitting below the waist :lol:

Hannity is tired…..predictable……Cain is just using this as a “hitching post” to get a long term contract with FOX….they need more color…..i called this right after he announced he was suspending his campaign…..he can’t go back to radio, he’s not runing, just hitch a ride with Fox to the election, then convert into a regular….watch and s@@ grasshoppers !

Herman needs to cool it. I saw him on Hannity last night as sort of a Sarah Palin type commentator and he was pitiful. Go away for awhile, Herman.

Herman was too dangerous and they knew it. An accomplished conservative black man that didn’t take hand outs, worked hard, and embraced America for the opportunities, while ignoring the racists, both the right ones and the left-plantation owner ones.
He would have thumped Obama hard, and Obama’s race card would have never had a play.

Wow!!

Herman Cain…Please go and sit your cheating butt down…fool, you got caught and embarrassed your wife, she should leave you and take your money with her…..if you did not do any of those things you were accused of, you would still be in the race….but you did them and that is why you are not in the race…Herman the bully with his 9 9 9 plan….go away…you are done and done…you old fool…actually thought you could do those things and run for President without no one finding about them…such arrogance…….

Chill. Even if a small portion goes to the scholarship fund it is a good thing. If someone wants to support the kids there are probably better ways to donate, but regardless of the politics it is a good cause.

Look people you can call the President what ever you want but the bottom line is Cain would NOT have quit if he was not guilty….this will hurt the GOP….”GO AWAY SHAME CAIN”

We liberals weren’t the ones hurling arrows and mud at Cain. Whether he’s guilty of sleeze or not, we were just sitting back with popcorn while other Republicans unearthed and tossed the dirt. Please do keep it up.

And remember, kiddies… sure, Georgia’s going whatever way the Repubs decide to go. It’s a given; we might as well not even vote in national elections (although I always do). But outside the South, your libertarian-conservative ideas don’t have as much traction.

So be smug around here while your Republicans run this state (and those surrounding!) into the ground. No surprise there. But for your own sakes… be prepared to be seriously unhappy in November.

I gave up on the American political process years ago. I no longer vote, but I do pay my taxes.
Anyone holding office at the federal level should be voted out ASAP.

I look at it this way. If Herman doesn’t have anything to hide, then release the agreement with the restaurant association for everyone to see.

I know that makes too much sense. Something politicians don’t understand.
