    latest false accusations, why won't he sue for defamation of character?

      who is known for winning defamation lawsuits, as I understand.  I expect that Herman intends this as a threat against his accusers.  As if.  I am sure that Allred would like nothing better for him to file a suit and then sit down for depostions under oath.  Allred would have no recorse but to subpoena everyone who ever worked at the NRtA with him, which I am sure is just how a lobbyist organization wants to spend the winter.  This is to say nothing about the joy the Koch brothers would feel at the idea of Herman and Block under oath, and the satisfaction that the GOP would feel at watching Cain step all over their well-scripted campaign.  There is also the fact that Cain is a public figure so wouldn't he would need to prove both falsehood and malice?  Good luck with that given the documentation on hand.
