Benjy Bronk hijacks Herman Cain’s sex scandal conference

The entire political press corps is waiting for Gloria Allred to introduce Herman Cain’s fourth accuser. But in the meantime, they are being treated to the rantings of Howard Stern’s producer Benjy Bronk.

You may remember, Bronk is the same guy who hijacked the press conference in which Anthony Weiner announced his resignation (Allred had a hand in that scandal too).

Bronk took the stage this afternoon to talk about someone named Elisa Jordana. It appears he is referring to the former keytarist for the band Cobra Starship.

Members of the press are not happy and have been imploring Bronk to get off the stage and leave their live mics alone for the past 10 minutes. Undeterred, Bronk broke out into Hebrew prayers and then started talking about Leave It To Beaver.

Bronk attempted to introduce Allred as she walked in, but she walked back out. Bronk refused to leave until the press “voted” whether he should stay. Finally, amid shouts and a unanimous “leave” vote, he left the room.

Howard Stern on Herman Cain Sexual Harassment Scandal “Its a Smear Job”

Herman Cain‘s ongoing sexual harassment scandal may have won him a number of detractors, but at least one prominent voice on talk radio (besides Rush Limbaugh) is buying his side of the story: Howard Stern. Stern took some time on his program to praise Cain’s rendition of “Imagine There’s No Pizza” and, when asked by co-host Robin Quivers what he thought of the accusations, said decidedly, “I think it’s a smear job.”

Stern played a clip of the now-famous performance of John Lennon‘s “Imagine” that turned the song into a pizza anthem, as Cain performed it with the help of a gospel choir. Stern sounded impressed with Cain’s dedication, stating, “that’s a guy who gets into his job.” Since Cain came up in conversation, Quivers asked him to evaluate the sexual harassment scandal, to which he gave a simple, direct response: “I think it’s a smear job.” Quivers replied that such smear jobs were common in politics, and that it happens to everyone, but that didn’t seem to convince Stern that the story was more legitimate than he had thought it before.
