AP Exclusive: Third worker says harassed by Cain



A third former employee says she considered filing a workplace complaint over what she considered aggressive and unwanted behavior by Herman Cain when she worked for the presidential candidate in the 1990s. She says the behavior included a private invitation to his corporate apartment.

She worked for the National Restaurant Association when he was its head. She told The Associated Press that Cain made sexually suggestive remarks or gestures about the same time that two co-workers had settled separate harassment complaints against him.

The employee described situations in which she said Cain told her he had confided to colleagues how attractive she was and invited her to his corporate apartment outside work. She spoke on condition of anonymity, saying she feared retaliation.

Cain's campaign declined to comment.


Wild Thing's comment......

Good grief.

You know Cain has been the only candidate not vetted, not really. Certainly not like all the others. This is why it is so important. We are not democrats and we are not wanting to elect another Obama that has too much hidden in his past. It is better for all of whatever there is to come out now and see what happens then to find out about things if he were to be elected.

On this third worker, I would say BS. I believe she's only someone trying to cash in on any potential money which may come of this. Anita Hill would be a nobody today if she hadn't made the accusations against Clarance Thomas. She's now a wealthy woman because of it.

Rumors and innuendos around. Most of all how much are you being paid?????

Sadly, too many women file false claims of sexual harassment against men they either hate or that they want money from. This trend detracts from legitimate claims. Only two people usually know the real truth. I hope these claims against Cain are proved or disproved very soon.

TomR, you right about that.

We don't know exactly what happened with this incident involving Cain and the two women. Even if it was baseless, paying one $35,000 is a pittance of what it would have cost to take the thing to court and fight it.
