Oksana's Former Bodyguard

Now Protecting Herman Cain

10/23/2011 10:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

 Herman Cain bodyguard
Kristian Otto Herzog -- the guy who was once at the center of the bitter battle between Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson -- is now at the center of the race for the Republican presidential nomination ... alongside Herman Cain.

Herzog was spotted on Friday with the GOP candidate during a campaign stop in Detroit, MI.

Cain's spokesperson, J.D. Gordon, tells TMZ this was Herzog's first job with the campaign and he worked with a team of 2-3 guys. Our sources say they don't believe Herzog is scheduled for any future events ... nor do they think he will be asked to provide future services.

Herzog worked as Oksana's bodyguard and claimed to have had a sexual relationship with her. He sided with Mel when she accused him of domestic violence.

You guys are all idiots. You will never acknowledge the accomplishments for President Obama, he has done more for this country than any other president. This guy Cain is being used, they think they need this black guy to get President Obama out of office. Black people will not vote for him just because he is black. He may be well educated but I do not feel that he has what it takes to be president unless you want someone with thug and gangster characteristics to run the whitehouse. He is not even smart enough to surround himself with the people he needs to. Vote for him and you are as much as an idiot as he is.

Laughing at the article because how in the heck does he get himself into so many odd pictures -- but serously folks:


Doesn't the REAL Secret Service provide security for presidential candidates?

Why would anyone want a fat, old dude as a bodyguard? It just doesn't make any sense to me. Nothing personal against this guy...I just mean in general.

To use the man, hun, like she used Mel Gibson.

Oh, no! Who's protecting Oksana????

She's not famous or anything, so don't see why she would need protecting. Anyone with half a brain and knowing now what type of person she is should run the other way when they see her ugly azz coming.

Michaele Salahi invites herself to the White House and makes it inside with no problem, stands right next to the President, she could have been a dangerous nut instead of just a nut who thought she was royalty.
S*&t happens, sometimes people slip through the cracks.

wow all the bigotry surrounding Cain simply because he's not adhering to the narrow criteria set by the left wing media and political leaders who are majority Caucasian
re: what you must believe in, the rules and political agenda you must follow in order to be considered properly Black in America.

Wow, Herman Cain trying to look important with bodyguards (NOT SECRET SERVICE) around him-- trying to give that impression though. Criminals as bodyguards, show me who you surround yourself with and I'll tell you who you are....I believe that is how the expression goes.

He looks like Belzar Conhead. I thought there were a law against hiring anyone with a felony record protecting any possible candidate.

Even more bad judgement by Cain. This guy isn't intelligent enough to be president.

You admit he is a convicted felon with a penchant for impersonating cops and then you say he claimed to have had a sexual relationship with Oxsana and that he sided with Mel in the domestic violence case. Obviously the guy is a liar and sleazeball so you can not believe anything he says. You fail to mention that Oxsana denied having a sexual relationship with this cop impersonator. It makes Mel look worse if that is possible, that this sleazeball took his side!

Soon we'll see a photo of Cain, wearing a, 'babydoll', sitting next to Kris on a bed. The the 'tell all' book will be shopped.
