Skip to comments.Statement from the National Restaurant Association

Joel Bennett held a press conference moments ago on behalf of his client who alleged sexual harassment charges against Herman Cain, and it amounted to a big fat zero of any relevant information to this. The woman doesnt want to reveal her identity or her side of the story. Whats interesting is that the NRA, according to their statement below, would have released her from the confidentiality portion of the agreement to allow her to vocalize her side of the story. But they still opted not to. So, end of story.
Here is the NRAs statement:
We have seen the statement Joel Bennett released earlier today on behalf of his client, a former employee of the Association. The Association consented to the release of that statement, at the request of Mr. Bennetts client.
Based upon the information currently available, we can confirm that more than a decade ago, in July 1999, Mr. Bennetts client filed a formal internal complaint, in accordance with the Associations existing policies prohibiting discrimination and harassment. Mr. Herman Cain disputed the allegations in the complaint. The Association and Mr. Bennetts client subsequently entered into an agreement to resolve the matter, without any admission of liability. Mr. Cain was not a party to that agreement. The agreement contains mutual confidentiality obligations. Notwithstanding the Associations ongoing policy of maintaining the privacy of all personnel matters, we have advised Mr. Bennett that we are willing to waive the confidentiality of this matter and permit Mr. Bennetts client to comment. As indicated in Mr. Bennetts statement, his client prefers not to be further involved with this matter and we will respect her decision.
The Association has robust policies designed to ensure that employees with concerns may bring them forward for prompt investigation and resolution, without risk of retaliation. The Association is fully committed to equal employment opportunity and to an environment that is free from any discrimination or harassment.
The agreement was made between the NRA and the client with no admission of liability. And Cain, just as he said, wasnt a party to the agreement.
Also, remember how the press wanted to make a big deal out of the fact that Herman Cain used the word agreement? Just to point out, thats exactly the word used in this statement. What does it matter? Not much at this point.
So, all in all, this is over and there is nothing to indicate that Cain did anything wrong. Let the Cain Train keep rollin on!
(in my best Charlie voice)
seems rather cut and dry and Cain did not lie...wonder how the media will spin (a pc word for lie) this...
born December 13, 1945 in Memphis, TN (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)
Luther Cain Jr., born March 16, 1925 in TN, died March 29, 1982 in Atlanta, GA
Lenora Davis, born July 27, 1925 in GA, died August 20, 2005 in Atlanta, GA
Both parents were US Citizens at the time of his birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Herman Cain is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama ISN'T!
Click on the cane, (Go Cain.)
As long as he promises not to do it again.
3...2....1....to the word parsers...
The other side, the hopelessly co-opted, and most of the media do not care about the merits.
No doubt this sleazebag lawyer will try to have his client “revisit” this in about a year, with the help of Soros money.
ahh....so a bunch of short order cooks called the big bad lawyah’s bluff....
She does not dare! The whole thing was a bogus shakedown on her part and further exploited by Politico.
Looks like she won’t be rubbing elbows with commie lib celebrities on shows like “The View” after all. Oh well, you win some, you lose some and some you don’t suit up for.
Womp. Up. Side the head.
i said Womp up side the head...
hey, hey, hey, Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooomp!
YES WE CAIN!
So Mr. Bennet has been out there feeding this frenzy against the will of his client?
Isn't he guilty of violating the confidentiality agreement?
Can his client sue him?
