A woman who settled a sexual harassment complaint against GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain in 1999 complained three years later at her next job about unfair treatment, saying she should be allowed to work from home after a serious car accident and accusing a manager of circulating a sexually charged email, The Associated Press has learned.
Karen Kraushaar, 55, filed the complaint while working as a spokeswoman at the Immigration and Naturalization Service in the Justice Department in late 2002 or early 2003, with the assistance of her lawyer, Joel Bennett, who also handled her earlier sexual harassment complaint against Cain in 1999. Three former supervisors familiar with Kraushaar's complaint, which did not include a claim of sexual harassment, described it for the AP under condition of anonymity because the matter was handled internally by the agency and was not public.
To settle the complaint at the immigration service, Kraushaar initially demanded thousands of dollars in payment, a reinstatement of leave she used after the accident earlier in 2002, promotion on the federal pay scale and a one-year fellowship to Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, according to a former supervisor familiar with the complaint. The promotion itself would have increased her annual salary between $12,000 and $16,000, according to salary tables in 2002 from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

A human magnet for sexual harassment? If I hired a gal like her...she’d have to be a one-person office, or working strictly with women.
That ain't a guarantee nowadays, if you want to consider a no-win employer nightmare.
Small wonder folks aren't enthusiastic about hiring.
I’d like to file a complaint about Karen Kraushaar.
She sounds like a real douchebag.
Is this the bimbo that WORKS FOR OBAMA, or is she the CLOWN who lived in DAVID AXELROD’S Chicago apartment building (and admits she socialized with him in their building’s gym)?
I’m waiting for ACCUSER #5 to appear. I’m told she looks like Joe Biden wearing sunglasses and a wig.
Hell, for their next trick, they’ll put a bikini on Rick Sanchez. “Richeline Sanchez” will be feted as Herman Cain’s “dim witted Miami mistress, who didn’t know Cain was married.”
what a trotter!
Actually, the word that springs to my mind for her is "floozie" -- the word my mother favored for women of "a certain type"! Kind of an old-fashioned word, but still serviceable, I think! ;-)
Instead of a “joint press conference,” these skanks should combine for a reality show.
They could battle to “get the money” by floating the most absurd accusations with the most transparent motives.
It could be filmed inside the White House — one already has an official job working for Omoslem, while the others are just “independent contractors” working for David Axelrod.
After reading the whole story, I find that I am not comforted by the evidence that people working at high governmental positions (especially the iRS) are clearly NUTS!
OMG!! I had no idea that so many women claimed sexual harassment!! Sounds like it was just to MILK MONEY and GOODIES out of people. Disgusting
good work bro
Joel Bennett, what a piece of work, I do not know which is worst Allred or Bennett.
Impossible! I saw a picture of her with a horse! She looked like a nice lady who likes horses!
...or at the very least, into serious self aggrandizement at the expense of others, and without any moral compunction.
Typical, these people make their lives filing complaints.
Can’t wait for the gals clown show. When the three grievance mongers get together for a press conference. My suspect that no such meeting will take place for fear to questions relating to this matter and the ones associated with Allred’s gal.
“The joke circulated online lists reasons men and women were like computers, including that men were like computers because “in order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.” Women were like computers because “even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval.””
...and for this E-Mail, which I’m sure this bimbo was the last thing on people’s minds when it circulated, is looked at as a cash cow for some people.
So now we know why she wanted to keep her name secret. Seems like her and her mouth are a tag-team that runs around suing everyone in sight, even without provocation.
I sure hope she enjoys her job where she is, because ANYONE that would take her for another job should have his head examined.
“Impossible! I saw a picture of her with a horse! She looked like a nice lady who likes horses!”
Lots of women ‘like’ horses...but did she file a complaint against any of them?
Her husband donates to both sides.
Her husband is a Lobbiest !
