Hot on the heels of conservative blogger Erick Erickson's replicated email endorsement for a get-rich-quick scheme comes a similarly questionable email ad from CainTV. The site, created by former pizza executive and presidential candidate Herman Cain, apparently sent out an ad earlier this week pitching an erectile dysfunction drug. It did not include any jokes involving the number nine.
The email was posted by DC blogger Evan Gahr, who also presented an unusually watermarked image of the email. The email informs Cain's loyal audience that "it is NOT your fault! And it is NOT natural — as we were led to believe!" Readers of the email are offered access to a webinar ("value $499") in which they will discover "#1 key reason for ED," "4 KILLERS of your manhood," and, of course, "#1 Root Cause Of Women Cheating," which is related to "earth-shaking, mind-blowing satisfaction."
There's some irony in the email offering tips on preventing your spouse from cheating, of course. Cain exited the 2012 Republican nomination process in the wake of accusations that the married entrepreneur had inappropriately harassed female colleagues. Cain insisted that the accusations were untrue.
