    Cain Accuser Said to Allege Series of Advances

    Post  hurricanemaxi on Sat 05 Nov 2011, 11:00 am

    A lawyer for a woman who accused Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment said today that she complained about a “series of inappropriate behaviors” and “unwanted advances.”

    Joel Bennett, in a statement to reporters, said his client stands by the “good-faith” complaint she made against Cain when he was head of the National Restaurant Association in the late 1990s.

    Cain, 65, has called the allegations “baseless” and has tried to move forward with his campaign after spending the last week defending himself from the allegations.

    “We look forward to focusing our attention on the real issues impacting this country -- like fixing this broken economy,” said Cain spokesman J.D. Gordon, in a statement today.

    Two women who had worked at the restaurant association accused Cain, who was CEO of the organization at the time, of sexual harassment and were paid settlements for their claims.

    Both women signed confidentiality agreements prohibiting them from discussing the details of the incidents. In a statement released late today, the restaurant association said Cain had disputed the allegations at the time they were made.
    Settlement Payments

    Former employees say the organization paid one female staffer a year’s salary -- $35,000 -- in severance after she complained about Cain’s behavior. The second woman, now a spokeswoman for a federal agency in Washington, received $45,000, according to a report yesterday by Politico.

    Bennett told reporters that the woman he represents doesn’t want to divulge the amount of her settlement, her identity or the specifics of her complaint, including the settlement she received from the trade organization.

    “She and her husband see no value in revisiting this matter now, nor in discussing the matter any further publicly or privately,” he told reporters. “In fact it would be extremely painful to do so.”

    Cain’s personal life came under scrutiny as he became one of the leading candidates among Republicans seeking the 2012 presidential nomination, less than two months before the Iowa caucuses start the nomination process on Jan. 3.
