Lisa Graves (Executive Director of the Center for Media and Democracy/PRWatch, ALECexposed) emailed this link to me a little while ago, and graciously permitted me to share the Blocktopus graphic with you.

Please go to for the story about the charity founded by Herman Cain's Chief of Staff Mark Block, that "potentially violated the Internal Revenue Code by fronting tens of thousands of dollars worth of Mr. Cain's campaign travel expenses."

Block is the former head of the Wisconsin arm of the Koch-funded group Americans for Prosperity.

First, here is Lisa's interview with Lawrence O'Donnell on The Last Word:

And here is the handy dandy guide Lisa shared with me:

You think those harassment issues are bad? You ain't seen nothin' yet, Hermie Cain.

The Hill is now reporting that calls for Cain chief of staff Mark Block’s resignation are growing amongst conservative pundits and former campaign staffers. (H/t: Livewire)

    Even if Block resigns, the damage remains.  I hope the IRS and FEC will address this issue. Of course, Cain, if asked about this, will deny any wrongdoing.  He sure is one dumb, not knowing mofo for someone who wants to be POTUS--an individual who is held accountable for so much.

  • What are you talking about!  Mr. Cain is a wonderful man who 1) wouldn't do the things he's being accused of, and 2) wouldn't associate himself with people you are saying Mr. Block is.

    What's the matter with you?  Can't you see?  He's a wonderful, nice man who has OUR best interests at heart.  Just ask him!

    Oh damn.  How do I clean the vomit off my keyboard?  Any suggestions?
