Herman Cain’s Smoking Gun

Herman Cain's Smoking Gun

Herman Cain’s hired gun, Chief of Staff Mark Block, a former employee of the Koch brothers’ AFP fined in 1997 for violating state campaign laws, smokes. That’s what he does in a strange campaign video that has gone viral.

Some see this as confirmation that the Cain campaign is just blowing smoke, but Mr. Cain has a long friendship with Big Tobacco. In his years as a high-powered Washington lobbyist, a career curiously ignored by his supporters, he made the National Restaurant Association a national powerhouse with money from R.J. Reynolds Tobacco and big alcohol companies. The price: Mr. Cain fought smoking bans in bars and laws lowering alcohol blood levels for drunk driving.

    Jon Huntsman’s daughters reply with a video of their own.

    Note: Does Mr. Huntsman claim to be the Resurrection? His campaign is called “Jon 2012.” Read John 20:12 here.
