Karl Rove, the former George W. Bush advisor and co-founder of American Crossroads, has some advice for embattled former Godfather’s Pizza CEO and GOP presidential front-runner Herman Cain. Wednesday on Fox News Radio’s “Kilmeade & Friends,” Rove suggested Cain and the National Restaurant Association should just lay everything out for the public, including the results of the investigation, and allow Cain’s accusers to speak publicly.

“We now know there were two women, not one, and one of them was given, according to The New York Times this morning, a year’s salary as a settlement — or as he refers to it, Mr. Cain refers to an ‘agreement,’” Rove said.

“I think the only way to get past this is to get the National Restaurant Association to release its reports. So they investigated … now that, Mr. Cain having spoken, it’s going to look unfair if he doesn’t take proactive measures to encourage the restaurant association to allow the women in question to come forward.”
