Equating Herman Cain with Joe Paterno smacks of partisan bias

November 17, 2011

Shame on The Sun for publishing Susan Reimer's column lumping Joe Paterno's failure to report child abuse together with Herman Cain's alleged sexual harassment of women ("Cain and Paterno's magical thinking," Nov. 14).

The audacity of Ms. Reimer's equating the two allegations as equally serious smacks of cynicism and partisan politics.

Mr. Cain was not "caught in the act" of anything. At best, his was a "he said, she said" debacle.

I believe Ms. Reimer owes Mr. Cain and his supporters an apology.
