Cain Accuser Stands by Accusation

The lawyer for one of the women accusing Herman Cain of sexual harassment says his client stands by her complaint and that the Republican candidate’s statements are inaccurate. The complaint concerns what the lawyer called “a series of inappropriate behaviors and unwanted advances” by Cain over a period of several months in 1999, when he was head of the National Restaurant Association. At the same time as the lawyer’s press conference, the National Restaurant Association issued a statement confirming the settlement and waiving the woman’s non-disclosure agreement. Despite the fact that she can now legally speak on the matter, the woman’s lawyer says she has chosen not to. “She and her husband see no value in revisiting this matter now, nor in discussing the matter any further, publicly or privately. In fact it would be extremely painful to do so,” the lawyer said.
