Having never held elective office, Herman Cain had some ground to cover in the polls in the summer months following his May 2011 candidacy announcement. By mid October, however, Cain became a real competitor in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Then, on October 20, decade old sexual harassment allegations against Herman Cain emerged. In the weeks that have followed, various versions of the story have surfaced that leave the public wondering what really happened and how the allegations should really be handled.
