Joel P. Bennett, the lawyer for one of the women who has made accusations against Mr. Cain, said that his client had decided not to go public or to make a public statement herself in an effort to shield herself from the media frenzy swirling around the situation.
Shes not going to affirmatively make any public statements or public appearances about the case, everything will be through me, Mr. Bennett said. She has a life to live and a career, and she doesnt want to become another Anita Hill.

Well, that and she is completely full of shit.
In that case, how can we even be sure there *is* a woman? Bennett could be making this whole thing up.
Until someone offers her 6 figures for her story!
The next sound you hear will be the sound of the Cain Harrassment Story fading into oblivion...
Well said !
LMAO! You'll never see her. You'll never hear her. But she will continue to accuse Cain of indefinite, but still very naughty, behavior through me. And she really does exist, too. Really! I am not making her up.
NO ONE is more disappointed than the lawyer Bennett. He was looking at new vacation home from this retainer.
I met Cain at the Peabody hotel the weekend of the Florida straightpoll. I was six feet from him. (True)
He LOOKED at me (ya know) in an odd way. I was very uncomfortable. I am going to file charges tomorrow. /sarc
then she shoulda kept her mouth shut
A new shyster niche may be emerging for ambulance chasers - imagine the billboards: Slander people anonymously - Let me say it for you!
Um.... horse.... left.... barn.
How’s this for a deep, dark secret...the great detective, Remington Steel...he doesn’t exist. I invented him....
To all those who wish to see Cain destroyed, your failure to come to his defense over this BS has now legitimized this kind of surreal attack. And your guy, whether it’s Romney or Perry, is going to get it this way when he squares off against Obama next year.
“My client does not wish to come forward, but through me wishes to reveal the despicable harassment she suffered at the hand of Mr. Obama’s opponent....”
Like the Perry guy: ‘Trust me, it’s really bad, but I won’t tell you what it is’. Sordid dirty tricks from the Perry camp against Cain.
Your missing the point. Bennett didn't say the woman was going away. He said she will continue to speak, but only through him. Bennett isn't going anywhere. He's going to continue be the source for this woman, whose existence we'll now never be able to confirm. She might be completely fictitious. I believe this is a watershed moment for journalistic standards.
This attorney Bennett told WaPo that he didn't have any records of the case, nor a copy of the "confidentiality agreement." Apparently it was a couple phone calls and that's all, which means she had no case. Damn right she doesn't want the Anita Hill treatment. Hill was exposed as a proven liar too.
