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.

Oh, gosh. If they don’t have a court judgement against Cain, it’s more of he said she said. Dems have enough of their own horn dogs to worry about. They can begin with the religion of pieces wing of the party.
It’s to Obama’s advantage for the GOP nomination process to drag out as long as possible. Recall the leak about Romney’s people working with Obama’s people on Obamacare?
Wow, the media is really lucky when it comes to Conservatives. Frontrunner for a month and they find 2 women that said Cain made them uncomfortable 2o years ago. They have yet to find anyone who knew Obama, associated with him, any ex-girlfriends, benefactors, school records, etc... 4 years later all they have is a nine layer electronic map of BC for a guy with multiple SS #s and nobody wants to know any more.
It has been suggested that this was the big campaign smear of the Perry campaign. Thoughts?
This has Romney’s fingerprints all over it.
This is Politico--totally irrelevant.
When a majority of the general public gets smart enough to ignore Plitico and all the far left blogs, there will be mass outbreaks of apoplexy as Dems literally go up in smoke.
Santorum can add it to his next "What's next?" attack ad against Cain.
Democrats testify at Senate investigation
Herman Cain's Crimes
One Senator testified that Herman Cain has "cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at union workers, razed immigrant neighborhoods in fashion reminiscent of Ghengis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged poor areas of cities. . . ."
Just in case.. :)
well it's here already being "reported" in the MSM. SCUM BTW has been used here by a couple of FReepers and IMO is the most accurate description. But the last time I checked there were just three google hits.
They talked. Time to pay it back or jail time.
How can you tell? They keep changing so frequently that I don’t know how anyone could keep track.
I will repeat what I said during the Anita Hill hearings...
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!
Precisely and homsexual drag queens or whatever they’re called....LOL.
I don’t doubt Politico’s story that a couple of female employees claimed harassment of some sort and quit after settling for 5-figure settlements (10,000-99,000).
However, in the low five figures even a bogus claim will often be paid to avoid the publicity of a lawsuit plus the costs of defending the matter.
I don’t even actually doubt that a couple of female employees didn’t like something Cain said or did to them, and that it might have had sexual overtones.
But until there are specific accusers actually accusing him of something that should disqualify him, such as attempted rape, inappropriate touching in the workplace, cornering them in a secluded place and attempting to make out with them, etc., I’m discounting this as two (or more) women who chose to hold Cain to the strictest standard of behavior, and who got paid off for doing so. And believe me, if we Republicans start only electing people who have always abided by some people’s strictest standard of behavior, we will be out of candidates and liberals will own the day (for the obvious reason that their standards of behavior are pretty much non-existent.)
well.. those kind of allegations should seal up the Clinton vote for him..
Legal docs to back this up.
Good grief a pervert running for prez. YUK.
