Herman Cain: The Pizza Man Is A Fraud And A Racist!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Herman Cain`s case against pundits who claim he`s running a book tour rather than a presidential campaign just got a bit more complicated.

Federal Election Commission records show that the former Godfather`s Pizza executive paid more than $64,000 of his presidential campaign funds to his motivational speaking company, T.H.E. New Voice Inc., for copies of his own books."



Herman Cain followed Sarah Palin`s template of running for president as a platform to sell books and increase his value as a speaker on the lecture circuit. I give credit to Cain for trying to make it look legit by actually running for president, as opposed to Palin who engaged in the biggest tease in political history.

While Can has been on his national book tour something unexpected happened, the pizza man found himself inexplicably leading the polls. I for one am not too surprised, if Republicans consider nutjobs like Donald Trump and Sarah Palin legitimate presidential contenders, why not Cain?

How has Cain responded to this remarkable development? Has he decided to get serious about his presidential campaign, and actually develop a campaign infrastructure? Heck no, his primary goal is still to hawk his books.

Cain used his campaign funds to buy thousands of his own books, landing him a spot on the coveted New York Times bestseller list. Cain can be introduced as the former CEO of Godfather`s Pizza, and as a captivating speaker, but he should never be introduced as a New York Times bestselling author.

Cain is as much a bestselling author as he is a legitimate presidential candidate. Cain has a bogus economic plan, a racist immigration policy, and no foreign policy platform. The pretender should stick to doing what he does best: Selling pizzas and books.
