CNN) - Joel Bennett, the attorney for one the women who has accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment, said Friday that his client "made a complaint in good faith about a series of inappropriate behaviors and unwanted advances" from the GOP presidential candidate.
Bennett said his client sees "no value" in revisiting the issue now, but "stands by the complaint that she made."
Bennett said his client would disagree with Cain's characterization of the alleged harassment incidents.
He confirmed that the alleged harassment occurred in 1999 over a period of "at least a month or two." There was "more than one incident," he said.

Smart move! the gal must have wisened up a tad....
So, still, no actual details as to what he did.
Nothingburger, in progress.
No one in media or DC can allow Herman Cain to win...
He is the grassroots pick- he is the tea party pick...
He does not play by the media or the beltway rules.
If WE the people pick our own candidate, they have to face the reality that they have lost their control, their power...
This fight is bigger than Cain, bigger than the tea party...
this is an all out war between DC elites and media against We the people we are leaving the abuse....we are packing our bags, loading them into the car, and on our way out the door.....their tantrum will escalate....
I just talked with Cains daughter the other day....the family is staying strong... I pray we will stay strong and have the courage to leave, and stay gone...
She keeps her mouth shut, she keeps her money.
She opens her mouth she loses all, including her credibility.
This is bullshit, she should be forced to prove her claims or shut up.
I’m sticking with my story.
What I said.
What did you say?
And it happened more than once.
One of the biggest, most miraculous and explosive non-issues of the year.
stands by what asshat?
How convenient. Names and specifics or be considered political dirty tricks.
Sounds like she's taking more shots as she's backing away.
OMG, this is so totally ridiculous and someone needs their ass kicked good and hard.
Well, then that’s end of it as far as her allegations are concerned. If she sees no value in revisiting the incidents, then nothing Cain did rises to the level of disqualifying him for the presidency.
Still no details, no identity.
Wolf Blitzer still thinks this story is hugh and series.
Means her personal history must make Paris Hilton look like a nun by comparison. And there is too much conservative media out there for her to trust that her MSM buds can keep the lid on for her.
No documents, no name no credibility!
Me neither, SO SHUT THE F*CK UP!
He ($ grabbin’ atty) means no value in revisiting NON issue.
Pretty hard to find “value”... when there’s nothing there to begin with:
“The association and the woman “subsequently entered into an agreement to resolve the matter, without any admission of liability...” the statement from National Restaurant Association President and CEO Dawn Sweeney said.
He must be representing the one female that works in Maryland. The New Jersey female left in May 1998, according to the Politico article.
Wolfe is breathless. He must be taking lessons from Shep.
or as we could say, there's no there, there.........
The story is dead.
All we’re waiting on is the coroner to issue the official death certificate.
+1 (Minus the expletive, for me, lol)
Whenever Team Romney had rumors they wanted to start about other candidates,
Jonathan Martin has been their go-to guy to get those rumors in writing in front of a national audience.
And The Most Irresponsible Journalist Award Goes to The Politicos Jonathan Martin!
So tell me, how do you write a news story about an organization paying for a speaker when you dont even know if the organization is paying for the speaker?
Ask journalist Jonathan Martin. He knows all about it.
You see, Jonny wrote a piss poor story the other day about how the Iowa Family Policy Center will be paying a large speaker fee if Sarah Palin comes to Iowa to keynote the IFPCs fall funderaiser.
The only problem is that Jonny has no sources confirming that any exorbitant fee is being charged or paid.
Jonny also got some inside info from David Kochel, who was a top aide to former (and future) presidential candidate, Mitt Romney.
Hey Dave, didnt I just read a story about how Mitt Romney tried to buy off the Iowa Christian Alliance?
I heard you helped facilitate that little scheme. And somehow you are shocked at the thought of a well-known political figure (who very likely isnt running for president) getting paid a speakers fee for (gasp) a public speaking appearance? ..
and then weve got Tim Albrecht quoted. He was the Iowa spokesman for Romneys 2008 caucus campaign.
And it always seemed like, whenever the Romney people had rumors they wanted to start about other candidates,
Jonny was their go-to guy to get those rumors in writing in front of a national audience.
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
Bennett said his client sees no value in revisiting the issue now, but stands by the complaint that she made.
Announcing his client is for sale to the highest bidder.
Wolf Blitzer still thinks CNN is relevant..........
She is not coming out because what the NRA considered to be sexual harassment at the time would not even be considered sexual harassment today in light of the KKKlinton defense of what is and is not sexual harassment. They want to hang Cain with this this, but can’t figure out how to tie the noose in the rope!
Are you sure you’re replying to the right person? Nothing was said about standing by anyone, just about the girls silence means she might have wised up.
In a way the whole episode helps Cain because he built an aura that he can’t be taken down while others fold like a cheap lawn chair.
Those of us who work in corporate or government work places know how easy it is to get hit with a false accusation of racism or sexual harassment.
A buddy of mine just got fired after five years of hard work at a place for sexual harassment. He needed a pen to write a telephone note and asked the fat chick standing next to him, Can I borrow your pen? She didnt react, so he reached for the pen sticking out of her front shirt pocket and plucked it out with two fingers. She went to HR, claimed sexual harassment and he was summarily dismissed. He had no prior work rule infractions and was offered no appeal of this firing.
One of the best ever! Seriously!
It is We The People!
And thus, the phony “Cain Scandal” comes to a merciful end. Many doubted him, but he rode out the Organizing for America project with flying colors. Bravo Citizen Cain!
Standard lefty tactic #2309: “Let’s be civil, you *@* of a *$!#+.”
That’s pretty much the way it went.
Then she shouldn’t have brought it up.
Aren’t discrimination and sexual harassment 2 different things... and would discrimination most likely mean she was passed over for a promotion and not treated fairly? So she then goes into the category of disgruntled employee, with a sexual harassment complaint to increase her veracity. Isn’t this sorta important? Maybe? no?
Does anybody think she might want to “revisit” this issue if Mr. Cain gets the nomination. Oh say, maybe a month or so before the election. After all, she couldn’t possibly let a sexual harasser become president. She’d be doing it for the “good of the country”.
Cain’s not their pick to be the nominee, but of course he’s an insider, having been a lobbyist in DC and then more recently part of the Koch bros. CAP stable. Likewise his campaign team comes from the Koch bros.
Again, he’s not their pick to be the nominee (there they pick Romney first and Perry as a backup), but he’s playing the game right along with the rest of them.
I missed have missed something. Where is it written that SHE brought it up?
That one comment by her attorney should cost her the settlement.
You owe me a keyboard...if I was using one. Since I’m on an android tablet I wiped the stuff off!
that confused me too.....I just chose to ignore it....figured maybe someone is having a bad day or confused themselves....
Many used it to promote their own agenda. That's closer to the truth...
EXACTLY! So far, the lawyer’s the ONLY one yapping about this.
It would be TRIVIAL for a liberal to pay her any potential money she would lose if she went public. Soros could pay her off 3x and he wouldn't even notice it.
