Exclusive: Two women accused Cain of inappropriate behavior By: Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman and Anna Palmer and Kenneth P. Vogel October 30, 2011 08:00 PM EDT
During Herman Cains tenure as the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, at least two female employees complained to colleagues and senior association officials about inappropriate behavior by Cain, ultimately leaving their jobs at the trade group, multiple sources confirm to POLITICO.
The women complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Cain that made them angry and uncomfortable, the sources said, and they signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them financial payouts to leave the association. The agreements also included language that bars the women from talking about their departures.
In a series of comments over the past 10 days, Cain and his campaign repeatedly declined to respond directly about whether he ever faced allegations of sexual harassment at the restaurant association. They have also declined to address questions about specific reporting confirming that there were financial settlements in two cases in which women leveled complaints.
POLITICO has confirmed the identities of the two female restaurant association employees who complained about Cain but, for privacy concerns, is not publishing their names.
Cain spokesman J.D. Gordon told POLITICO the candidate indicated to campaign officials that he was vaguely familiar with the charges and that the restaurant associations general counsel had resolved the matter.

....will Anita Hill make an appearance with pubes and a coke can?
Time for the scum to start doing a Clarence Thomas on Herman Cain. DemocRATS are the scum of the earth. The racist bass turds.
She won ~ kinda ~ he had said "S H * T" in her presence.
She eventually had to leave the office because NO ONE WOULD SPEAK IN HER PRESENCE.
Cain said he was ready for his “high tech lynching”. Didn’t he?
Yep. Time to bring out the paid whores who here to set up the candidate (Cain). I’ve seen this kind of crap happen before when the “establishment” needs to get rid of a good decent person.
Wonder who hired them? We got another Judge Thomas deal going here?
You read my mind!! lol
He will be Thomased all over again.
pubic hairs on a coke can again ?
Politico is like the Alphabets online. Leftist as hell.
Who funds them? Soros?
Anita Hill is back? Geez, whoda thunk it? I can’t wait for the woman Judge to come out and speak again. Geez what a riot that one was.
And the racist Left unleashes the smear campaign.
It is shocking that something like this would arise. Good thing the press will not care cause its personal behavior; nothing to do with his job performance./sarc
Will America let this BS go on again?
Yep, false accusations of HC wanting to play “hide the pepperoni”.
We are not in virgin territory with this $hit anymore!
It was reported obama had larry sinclair in the back seat of a limo in chicago.
Dems do it, its only about sex. Repubs do it its the very worst thing. I believe it has gotten to the point where all this so called reporting by the MSM is being recognized as hypocritical bovine scat-ta. Most people are sick of it, except the Liberals who love to wallow in it and laugh at how its being eaten up by their loyal followers. Wow an October surprise a year ahead of schedule?
Right out of the liberal playbook!!!
That took awhile...
What took so long?
I expected this liberal crap a while ago...as soon as he started creeping up in the polls.
Because we all know that liberals think of blacks as nothing more than animals and each as a potential sexual predator. That’s why they think that using these lies will hold sway with the American people, because they think all Americans have the same warped, degenerate, racist views that they have.
I EFFING HATE LIBERALS.
They would have more credibility if they had come forward long ago. Now it appears to be nothing more than another lib smear.
What trash can did they dig these women out of?
Well, now we can say for sure he has been Palined, Borked, and Thomased. This is just bizarre.
And I bet his poll numbers go up.
Thanks for the ping, btw.
Not this time. It’ll be a good study in pre- vs post-internet media coverage.
OH Baloney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the old attack Clarance Thomas strategy..won’t work and why should dems care? look at their GOD...Clinton.
pubic hairs on a coke can again ?
You must be pretty young if you don’t remember that.
Time to put up a curtain of protection around this guy... no more will we sit passively listening as the MSM and the left tars and feathers our guy. I am Herman Cain!
Bringing sexual harassment charges against an employer is a standard legal ploy.
It means nothing, unless they come up with names and facts. And if they do, I suspect it will still mean nothing.
I have worked with men and women on an assembly lines. It tends to get boring so conversations and jokes happen. ALL the men who I asked to keep it clean... have. Several of the woman laugh at my request and continue to tell x-rated jokes. They get away with it.
“Wonder who hired them”
My money is on union thugs.
I honestly believe that they have cried wolf for so long, no body buys this crap anymore.
Besides, Clinton proved that certain sex isn’t really sex.
We were already predicting Anita II.
See,they didn’t disappointed us.
So so predictable.
this is laughable, now they are trying to Bork him!
they are starting to get scared.
Yes. We’re not in virgin territory anymore.
Rejected females are evil!
what next? long dong silver???
How appropriate was the behavior by the women? Would their actions pass the "Laura Schlessinger" test? The tactic of finding women to complain is getting old.
Democrats never got past potty training so they do this with every candidate.
I find it amazing that reporters can dig up S**t on any Republican running, but they still cannot dig up anything on Obama.
F the media.,these 4 journalists and any news source that gives Obama a break while digging up crap on any Republican that runs.’
Where are the stories about Nancy Dalesandro working as a B girl in Baltimore on the block before marrying Pelosi.
Yeah wouldn’t that be great? It doesn’t have to be true to make a good story, just spread around like these media agents spread around lies on Republicans.
This story, like the rock story on Perry, can be extremely damaging on its face. I hope the other candidates observe caution before commenting on this.
