Gloria and Herman Cain

Gloria Cain has stayed in the shadows…well, more like the basement of her husband’s campaign for the Republican nomination in the 2012 US Presidential election–until now. On Sunday Politico.com noted that “In an interview taped with “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” – which will air Monday [today] – Herman Cain’s wife, Gloria, appears to have shored up her husband over allegations about sexual harassment”.

Political strategist have seen Gloria Cain as a sort of persona non grata in the recent scandal that has troubled her husband’s campaign. Letting Gloria Cain speak out to support her husband’s adamant stance that he had no relations with several form staff members is almost in a way acknowledging that the proverbial dog poo has hit the fan and can be seen as co-signing his crazy–real or make-believe.
