Washington, D.C. (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is investigating possible improper financial arrangements between a charity and his campaign.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Monday that Cain, who
also is dealing with sexual harassment allegations from the 1990s,
allowed a tax-exempt charity to illegally provide money to help
Cain's campaign get started.

Cain's chief of staff, Mark Block, says the campaign has asked a
lawyer to review the transactions. Block says the campaign will
comment when that investigation is over.

The charity, Prosperity USA, was founded by Block and Linda
Hansen, Cain's deputy chief of staff. The Journal Sentinel reported
there are questions about approximately $40,000 that helped Cain's
campaign get started earlier this year.

    To Wrong again cons, it's not our side that believes that America is wrong and goes around the world and appologizes for American arrogance. How is pointing out liberal hypocrisy foul intentions? We conservatives have plenty of ideas they just don't include taking money from producers and giving it to you. We love this country and the constution on which it was founded, so you can go and sit on the capital lawn with your signs demanding your freebies.

      Also mc,if I remember right,it was the people who voted for obama that voted for "change"and to "fundamentally change America".It is those people who do not like America and want to "fundamentally change"it and are the ones who need to leave since they don't love America anymore.

    Cain is one of the circle of bigwigs. The powers that be are stacking the deck against Ron Paul and his real message and ideas that would bring this country back to prosperity. The fake news the media puts out covering anyone but Ron Paul and his very strong wins at these debates. Rick , Mitt , Cain, and so on are all part of the boys club, Ron is not, Lobbyist dont even bother with Ron Paul anymore. Get the facts America! Once a fed always a fed. These Lieing lawyers and professional politrickians are milking the public and hiding the truth about the Corporation that is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

      Ron Paul is a knit-wit.

    Mr. Me....if you would have read the story with your eyes open, you would know that Cain has asked for the investigation himself not the liberal media. Stop allowing yourself to be blinded by lies and hate

    Liberal media on another all this is. Trying every which way to attack and discredit this man, yet seemingly, Obama (and his liberal counterparts) always get a "free pass".

      His campaign contributions actually have gone up.

    Here we go again,investigate Repuolicans if you must , but the same ones investigating Cain would ask no questions about anything of Obama. When Al gore recieved money from the Chinese not much was said about it . The double standard of media is astounding, and lioberals hate Fox news because they dare to give both sides of the story while all of the rest of the major media is firmly on the left and reports so.

      Small minded conspirators like yourself are the reason intelligent people scoff at the GOP. If ya'll were half as busy working for a better America instead of prying into closets we would all be better off.

        So I was right liberals say it's ok to investigate the smallest things in a conservatives life real or immagined. But don't you dare ask the smallest thing about a liberal , if you do that your a conspirator. Hypocrisy abounds.

          Your combined small, witless, drivel impresses none but yourselves. Not a single viable idea among the lot of conservatives, but plenty of spit. Your actions betray your foul intentions. If you no longer love America then leave.
