Cain Campaign Steps In It Again! Spokesman Wrongly Insists Accuser’s Son Works For Politico

Reported by Ellen - November 8, 2011 -

Ruh-roh! Cain spokesman Mark “the smoker” Block appeared on Hannity tonight to reinforce Herman Cain’s press conference in which he denied having harassed anyone (but did not say he had never groped nor propositioned any of his employees). As part of Cain’s defense, Block went after the credibility of one of the newest accusers, Karen Kraushaar, by saying "We've confirmed that (her son) does indeed work at Politico.” Unfortunately, Politico has confirmed that’s not true.

Politico reported:

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.
