Cain and his supporters joke about Anita Hill

November 11, 2011

Herman Cain was filmed joking about Anita Hill on Thursday, less than a day after he controversially referred to Rep. Nancy Pelosi as “Princess Nancy” and following a week he spent embroiled in numerous allegations of sexual harassment.

At a campaign event in Kalamazoo, Michigan, a man asked Cain a question, only partially audible on the tape, referring to Anita Hill, the woman who famously accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his Senate confirmation hearing in 1991. Cain, encircled by supporters, doubled over in laughter, before quipping, “Is she going to endorse me?”
