My next guest was also at -- conference she witnessed that backstage -- -- And joining us now WIN DAM 560 radio show host Amy Jacobson Amy thanks for being here.
This thanks for having this is.

First the ideas that this woman.
Met Herman Cain at this conference.
A sponsored by WI ND.
Did you meet her before.
She went to talked with Herman Cain.
-- -- -- where -- the group of co workers and she was there she's -- radio world so to speak Susan radio sales and WGN and -- WBBM so people knew -- our group.
And she had mentioned to me at the time hey you know I know -- McCain back in 1997 my boyfriend and I met him at an after party.
And it NRA conference in Chicago.
Really nice guy she didn't say any disparaging remarks about and she decided that she really wanted to meet him.
And she looks forward to meeting -- -- -- was backstage is somehow and when he came in the realm.
-- you know 'cause I was trying to take a -- adamant she.
You know she charged that -- said -- -- was friendly -- -- she's a very bubbly aggregating really person.
Let me -- -- you said she said she wanted to.
Quote unquote not.
Meantime -- into wanted to talk to him again as you met him before she just wanted to say hi -- -- -- actually using -- -- meet him.
-- just you're actually they wanted to say hi to him again run us.
And and once you -- domino what she saw him again she put her arm around him and then she grabbed his arm and was talking to him as -- -- -- -- became very tense in that backstage wing.
We weren't sure what was going on like what what's happening because -- is supposed to be moving toward the stage -- -- kind of stopped him.
Cornered him so to speak -- and gave him a piece ever -- and I don't know what she -- answer is -- at first he's filed a first.
Insane high because he's on the campaign trail.
And then it got he had -- stone -- after that she -- for awhile and finally we -- to go over there and say.
And we need to get to -- mr.
-- -- you you walked out and -- audience.
Well when you say she gave him a piece of her mind.
That's she went from being -- us.
-- or arm around him.
To giving him a piece of her mind as you put it what -- did that look like is she is quote gave in the piece of Vermont.
While she had her back turned toward -- -- -- -- her talking to him and it is very close to him so that nobody else could hear the conversation.
And you know marina had a little bits and then.
Who's very firm -- is a very determined woman she really wanted to see him and how close were you in proximity to the two of them at that moment.
I was about three feet then I moved back when they're talking -- it seem like they wanted to wanted to say something to him in private.
So I wasn't -- dropping by any means but I could tell that it was a tense situation there wasn't comfortable.
When you say -- Well let me before -- answer that.
I wanna talk about that tension that you detected but also Europe and such proximity to -- you could hear neither of their voices.
No I heard him say not monitor her and and and I -- moved back to give them space.
And when you say that suddenly there was tension in around the two of them.
How -- that tension manifest itself.
-- -- and her body language and and how she was moving ahead while she was talking to him and she's very direct and aids she had a message tonight I wish I would -- known what -- -- -- but in the press conference yesterday she said.
She wanted it say don't pay -- -- remember me.
I'm the one you know we know it sounds that it would deal yeah did he -- did he reply at any time.
Now I decide after I heard an alliance somber and her nodding his head and partner was -- and -- just like straight ahead.
In this -- in this are gonna call for in transfered -- -- judgment on your part was there any sign of recognition on his part.
When she obviously when she.
Put her arm around him and approached them.
It at any point -- sign of any that what you're judged to be recognition.
Of the -- It's so hard with -- -- on a campaign trail because.
YouTube every vote everybody in there what is -- and I don't want -- candidate yet you don't wanna offend anybody.
So that it was -- way.
It was unlike anything I've seen before and day.
I wish I was a little bit closer to find out what they're talking about.
All -- I agree really appreciate your account of what did transpire.
And who ultimate -- Took the candidate.
The -- -- by -- and moved him onto the stage.
Our our program director Markus from this said it's time because the crowd have been waiting it was about an hour late.
So we had to bring him from her and -- to escort month to stage right.
No parting words between the two.
That you could -- but it was strange today when they asked you know Herman Cain who -- she says I don't remember her face at a remember her voice.
I don't remember her name William matter if you had matter before you matter a month ago sell.
You know I think you're going or just -- not even though that this candidate has been in front of a lot of his best friends.
Over the course of the past the you're right.
He has -- but I'm glad today filing in this press conference he addressed the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace because.
The last few press conference his head in -- the National Press Club club blue he saying.
At the end of that press conference that -- wasn't addressing the issue whether this happened or not they're still women who are sexually harassed every day on the job.
And he he need to take it seriously and I think today he did say that -- not tolerated he did not tolerated as a boss now that's a step in the right direction.
Yeah and and I think we can all appreciate for -- it's a very personal matter right now with four accusers.
In declaring that they had at some point experience sexual harassment.
As a result of his actions are words.
-- -- and we we appreciate your being with us and insuring your account thank you so much maybe --
