Herman Cain's battle over sexual harrassment charges has continued to evolve as more women go public with their allegations. Cain has tried in various ways to answer the questions, including a news conference much of the media carried live, but has yet to put the matter behind him.
It's easy to assume Cain will not survive these allegations. Easy, but it would be a mistake.

The stories involving Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain concerning allegations of sexual harrassment are falling into a predictable pattern. They also provide a lesson or two on crisis communications.
First, Cain was on the defensive, saying he was falsely accused. Later, in a series of media interviews, Cain offered shifting accounts of what he says happened while he was president of the National Restaurant Association. He also said at first that he knew nothing about any settlements with his two female accusers, then said one of the cases may have been for two or three months' salary.
