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!”
