Herman, Herman, Herman... Just one day after Herman Cain apologized for referring to Nancy Pelosi as “Princess Nancy,” he stepped in it again with a joke about Anita Hill. That’s right: Cain, facing allegations of sexual harassment, made a joke about the woman who accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment. The presidential contender was at a campaign stop in Michigan yesterday when someone mentioned Hill. A Fox News camera caught Cain responding, “Is she going to endorse me?” to laughter.

The New York Times quotes a spokesperson who says, “It was a joke” and that Cain was “repeating what a supporter said.” Click to see how Cain’s “scandal” has (not) affected his fundraising. (Read more Herman Cain 2012 stories.)
