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.

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.
This was a Rove-Romney hit. The Rats would have waited until the election.
Clinton and the MSM Soros Owned DNC Press proved that even having had sex with them is A OK!
It’s a non issue.
Sorry, I meant with the accusation, not the ping. :)
and where are the interviews with Obama’s old customers from his days of dealing cocaine?
Why do I have a feeling those two women are big flaming libs and Cain probably said to them “I am a Conservative, I am for limited Government” and those two women said “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO you said the C word, noooooooooooooo” and they fainted.
Oh crap! Well, better now than later. Go ahead and get this behind him. 2012 is going to be the nastiest election in history.
Ron Magruder, Denise Marie Fugo and Joseph Fassler, the chair, vice chair and immediate past chairman of the National Restaurant Association board of directors at the time of Cains departure, said they hadnt heard about any complaints regarding Cain making unwanted advances.
Send them back to the shed with the other tools.
Didn't we hear this same BULLSHIT regarding Clarence Thomas? The Dims must be really, really be afraid of the HERMANATOR. Hope old Herm keeps the lace panty, hand-wringing, pants wetters up all night.
I am surprised it took this long. They’ll take him down any way they can. It’s going to be Anita Hill all over again.
