Friends of Herman Cain (FOH) is a political action committee supporting the presidential campaign of Republican candidate for president Herman Cain.

Legal Controversy

FOH registered with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on May 3, 2011. However, Prosperity USA noted in financial documents from February 2011 that it owed FOH more than $40,000. FOH had paid for Cain's travel expenses as well as iPads. It turns out that FOH had actually started raising and spending money in January 2011. [1]

Senior Members

Mark Block is the treasurer of FOH. Scott Sidney, a previous member of Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin and an organizer of "taxpayer tea parties" against health insurance reform, is the Director of Advance Operations for FOH. [1]
