Fresh from accusing Rick Perry of leaking the original scandal story to Politico, Mark Block, Herman Cain’s campaign chief, charged tonight on Sean Hannity’s Fox News Show that Karen Kraushaar’s son works at Politico.

Herman Cain’s Decline May Have Begun

Last week, I predicted the sexual harassment allegations against Herman Cain would spell the end of his campaign, though it might occur gradually, as the seriousness of the charges sinks in.
