HERMAN CAIN: Here's the thing, ambiguity. That's it. Anytime you have a law or rule that's this ambiguous, it opens it up for abuse, and it's those that will abuse it that -- 

HARRIS FAULKNER (CO-HOST): So what does abuse looks like? 

CAIN: Abuse looks like -- 

JEANINE PIRRO: You talking about a pedophile?

CAIN: I'm talking about a pedophile. 

PIRRO: I pedophile can walk into a bathroom any day. 

CAIN: But others could abuse it. They could wake up one morning and say, "I'm going to dress up like a woman, and I'm going to go into a woman's bathroom." 

MELISSA FRANCIS (CO-HOST): So, who cares? Who cares?

CAIN: I would care if my 17 year old granddaughter is in there and somebody's walking in who looks like a woman, but they have a beard I would have a problem with that. 

FRANCIS: But why? I mean, women's bathrooms are all private stalls, who cares who's in the stall next to you? Who cares?

CAIN: They could be a pedophile person, there could be a pervert hiding in that stall.

FRANCIS: They could be in there anyway. 

PIRRO: It's a hypothetical threat.
