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.

Im still waiting for the media to interview Larry Sinclair, who according to him, played “Find the pickle” with Obama in the back seat of a limo
It was reported obama had larry sinclair in the back seat of a limo in chicago.
Yes, but with Liberals accusations mean nothing. They could have a video of Obama in bed with a dead girl or a live boy and his adoring followers wouldn’t give a crap.
It won't work this time. Herman Cain is more vocal than Thomas. He's had years of experience handling rude liberal callers to his radio talk show. Add to that a certain element of "Been there, done that," and I predict the public simply will not stand for another high tech lynching of a black man simply because he's a conservative black man. I used to be a somewhat liberal person--until the Thomas hearings. I was appalled at the way he was treated by the sanctimonious, hypocritical Democrats in the Senate. That was what opened my eyes to the liberal bias in the media. All the media sided with Hill, but on C-SPAN, 90% of the callers were expressing their outrage at Hill and the Democrats.
If the Democrats want to permanently lose the black vote, they should go ahead and launch these charges against Cain. I can't wait.
Get the fork ready.
Don’t forget what they did to alito and Roberts.
I will never forget the venomous disgusting questions and innuendos.
Coming from a woman that means quite a bit.
Why are you so terrible with each other? I don’t understand that.
This is coming from Romney, mark my words.
Remember...in spite of anita hill, Clarence Thomas was appointed and STILL IS a Supreme Court justice. And a good one too.
That being said, My prayers go up for Herman Cain.
I just clicked on this story to say that I don’t give a f*ck, Politoco.
They probably should have waited until he got the nomination. There’s not a whole lot of Cain supporters that are going to switch to Romney because of this garbage.
Thanks Sub-Driver. To be fair, the media shills manufactured things like this about Obama too. Like, for example, uh, uh...
Seriously, I don’t care if Cain paid them to give him BJ’s i’m voting for Cain!
Screw you Romney!
Antone that threatens to beat Romney is whacked. Every damn one of them.
Millions of us accuse Hussein of raping our freedoms and molesting our economy.
high tech lynching
Rove-Romney are a nasty duo, aren’t they?
Cain, who has been married to his wife Gloria for 43 years, did tell at least one campaign staffer this year about the possibility that claims of sexual harassment could surface, according to the aide. Cain, this person said, described a case in which he fired an employee in 1990s and the woman alleged sexual misconduct or harassment. Cain told the campaign staffer he had beaten the case and that the woman had paid for his legal fees. The aide had no further details.
