The Daily Names One Cain Accuser, And She Works In The Obama Administration
Business Insider ^ | 11/08/2011 | Zeke Miller

Posted on 11/08/2011 8:17:17 AM PST by SeekAndFind

The Daily, the tablet newspaper, named one of the women who filed a sexual harassment claim against Republican front-runner Herman Cain while he was CEO of the National Restaurant Association.

The woman, identified by the paper as Karen Kraushaar, now works as communications director at the Treasury Department's Office of the Inspector General.

Cain has sought to downplay the charge — calling it frivolous — saying she overreacted to a gesture comparing her height to his wife's.

But the paper spoke to friends and family members of Kraushaar who vouch for her honesty — saying she is not the type to bring false allegations.

“She wouldn’t be the type to make false allegations,” brother-in-law Ned Kraushaar, a Georgia software consultant, told The Daily. “This happened [more than] 10 years ago. It’s not like she wanted to try and hurt the Republican Party.”

Joel Bennett, her attorney, held a press conference on Friday to say that his client would not speak publicly.

The source of the attack is coming out in drips. I hope all the GOP Elites who have supported this witch hunt are identified and targeted, starting with Karl, Turd Blossom, Rove.

"It’s not like she wanted to try and hurt the Republican Party.”

We all know that no one in the Obama administration would ever want to do that.

Let’s go back...Cain himself told his staff that this would likely come out. I’d put 100 to 1 that it was a Cain staff member who innocently leaked this.

Was this the one who got $45K or $35K, and shouldn’t she be required to repay this amount back to the NRA for violating the non-disclosure agreement?

All the candidates better get ready.

If the Democrat political/media machine, with the help of certain GOP Establishment talking heads, can lynch Cain like this, who ever replaces him in the polls will get the same treatment.

You can always tell when the media is on somebody's side - they run out and get glowing quotes from the person's friends and family about how wonderful they are.

I don't remember anybody ever asking Larry Sinclair's brother for a quote about the wonderfulness of Larry.

yup, OSS fits right into this strategy. If Romney gets the nomination, this fall we will hear a LOT more about Bain Capital.

Paula Jones got $850,000 for her suit against Clinton.

Frivolous lawsuits get settled for 5 figures by businesses to make them go away, serious suits do not.

Kraushaar had better be prepared to play in the big leagues. She is about to have her life examined and worry about the large unmarked car parked across the street with the cameras.

But the paper spoke to friends and family members of Kraushaar who vouch for her honesty

WOW!

What’s happening is: the woman they trotted out yesterday has such a shady background that she has zero credibility. So, now they’re trotting out a more “reliable person”. Notice how the story tripped all over itself to say how reliable and good she is.

She was “outed” by Cain’s opponents.

The woman Allred trotted out yesterday is turning into a disaster. She is totally uncredible. So, to make the story stick, they now have to produce a credible accuser.

Notice how the story goes on and on about how credible and wonderful she is, and how she isn’t the type to level a false charge.

You’re right, this a’int bean bag, but dont blame the Cain supporters for outing her, it was the non-Cain supporters that outed her.

The woman, identified by the paper as Karen Kraushaar, now works as communications director at the Treasury Department's Office of the Inspector General.

Ooh, she works at the Treasury's IG office. Maybe if she has time between making allegations she can look into the activities of her boss, the Official Tax Cheat of the United States.

Contrast all this transparently ridiculous brouhaha over these "victims" to Juanita Brodderick. Clinton rapes her, she has witnesses and credible medical reports to verify, yet the treasonous bastards of our media, at best, give her only passing (and suspicious) reference.

The disgusting racial stereotypes the libs are playing with here are repugnant. These people are lying, sickening, slimy filthmongers who should be reviled by anyone with a modicum of decency left in their souls. But then again, anyone who at this stage can publicly associate with the Democrat (COMMUNIST PIG FECES) Party HAS NONE!
