Skip to comments.Third former worker says Cain behaviour ‘inappropriate’
Posted on 11/02/2011 1:35:14 PM PDT by tcrlaf
WASHINGTONA third former employee says she considered filing a workplace complaint over what she considered aggressive and unwanted behaviour by Republican candidate Herman Cain when she worked for the presidential candidate in the 1990s. She says the behaviour included a private invitation to his corporate apartment.
She worked for the National Restaurant Association when he was its head. She told the Associated Press that Cain made sexually suggestive remarks or gestures about the same time that two co-workers had settled separate harassment complaints against him.
The employee described situations in which she said Cain told her he had confided to colleagues how attractive she was and invited her to his corporate apartment outside work. She spoke on condition of anonymity, saying she feared retaliation.
Cains campaign declined to comment.

And not a SINGLE cry of "RACISM!!!!" from all of the usual suspects. How very strange, indeed.
To MOD: AP Broke this about 20 minutes ago...
“She spoke on condition of anonymity, saying she feared retaliation.”
She spoke on the condition that she really doesn’t exist. Pray for Herman Cain.
The next allegation wil be that the Cain-man was using dogs for pit fighting...you watch.
Gotta love anonymity,By the way,obama,harry reid and nancy pelosi are crooks who should be in jail!
After being offline for days due to lack of power, logging onto FR today and learning “the rest of the story” about all of the recent news is overwhelming.
Was there a big sale on Anita Hill masks this Halloween? Seems a lot of women are wearing them.
So, can I claim that Obozo has sexually violated me on a financial level since he’s screwing all of us over with his spending spree?
This makes me sick.
Just another reason I hate that Palin decided not to run... they’d already thrown everything in the book at her, and nothing stuck (in spite of their childish insistence to the contrary).
This crap might stick.
So... what’s going to happen? Do we need to see each of our candidates destroyed one-by-one... if not by our other candidates, than by a bunch of scum-sucking leftist slime, aided and abetted by the mainstream media?
So we’re gonna wake up one day and find no one left standing except the candidate the powers-that-be demand be on our ticket (and you all know who THAT is).
Can’t we just wipe the friggin’ slate clean and find ANOTHER half dozen people? Kind of like kicking nitwits off of a jury, and choosing another? NONE of these people are really acceptable. NONE OF THEM.
Does Cain have any children? If he does somebody will probably try to dig up dirt on them like they did with Palin’s family.
I knew it!
This smells just like a Perry plan to discredit Cain! /MS
A married man never invites a woman alone to his corporate apartment. That said, the truth is its more likely for women to use sex to gain a promotion or favors from powerful men than its the other way around.
So he told other people he thought she was attractive? Wouldn’t that be a stupid thing to do if one had nefarious intentions?
Or putting a dog on top of his car while he goes on vacation
He also raped some girl in a tent at numerous OWS camps.
It’s become the playa haters ball:
Next it will be He spoke on condition of anonymity, saying he feared retaliation.
She was Jewish. For Christmas, I made Irish shortbread as a gift for everyone in the department. I gave her a batch, and she ate most of it that day. I also sent her a card, acknowledging she didn't celebrate Christmas, but I wanted to share the spirit of the season.
When I eventually fired her, in her lawsuit she brought this up as being somehow 'offensive' and religious discrimination. Our Human Resources department eventually settled with her. Just to get her to go away.
This happens all the time. There is no 'there' there.
The libs and MSM are looking for and manufacturing blood in the water and paying for anyone who will step up and take the hook.
Annonymous, I thought about it 25 years ago...but didn;t do it. Right.
I'm sticking with Herman Cain and will send him more money.
Private invitation could mean anything. This could be anything from asking her to drop off files to letting her know the apartment was available if she needed it.
If he was this fast and loose, their has to be some female who took him up on the invitation. Where are they?
Or a woman who “came on” to Cain and was rebuffed.
Which is about what I figure happened between Thomas and Hill.
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned (or rejected)!
True enough, maybe she wanted to do the boss in order to get ahead and he said no. A woman scorned and all that. At best we have a he said she said situation, but knowing the way the laws are set up it is more likely gold diggers looking for more.
So if everything the woman says is true, the worst case scenario is:
Cain: You are cute, wanna come up to my room?
yawn.... No oral/anal contact or cigar insertions like clinton? (Starr Report) No visits to to witnesses resulting in slashed tire and dead pets? No phone calls at 2am to inform a girlfriend that another witness’s “brother had just been killed in a hit and run and BTW you are now a witness against me”? No audio tapes that are attacked as fake by a private-eye who is later arrested for witness intimidation and is found to have C-4 explosives and hand grenades in their safe? The same private eye is said to have been good at making murder look like suicide in the court case against him? No rape allegations or suggestions that a rape victim put some ice on her bit lip?
have you ever seen such vague allegations? Bill Clinton did 100x worse and the MSM loved him.
Could Cain sue her for slander?
Well, if no one will dare to say it, I WILL...
Using a page from the Democrat Playbook, these women are OBVIOUSLY RACIST, and frightened by a strong-willed hetrosexual BLACK MAN!!!
True. Sounds like nothing happened.
If this woman knew about the other women, they would have all joined in a suit and cashed in big time. All lies as far as I’m concerned.
And I’m going to be like Clintonistas. If Cain admits it, I STILL won’t believe it.
This "third woman" is a fraudulent smear. Probably no such person exists.
So far we have three potential “allegations.”
One is a woman that Cain supposedly told was as tall as his wife. Why this is even mentioned is beyond me. If that’s going to get him in to trouble then you might as well never speak to women about anything at any point in time.
Two, in the worst case, is as described in 24. In the likely case, it is nothing.
Three is unknown, and also likely nothing.
I suspect that all of this is nothing.
It would seem the first “cut” at this didn’t work. So, now we are going to have an endless parade of women saying the same $hit.
Screw ‘em (figuratively, of course).
Go, Herman, Go dammit!
The money and support is pouring in for Herman Cain, but we cannot slow down now. Please help him by donating at http://www.hermancain.com/
Also to help join the buzz about Herman go to facebook.com and like him. In just the last week he has jumped 13% or 42000 with an impressive 10,000 in the last 24 hours. Make no mistake Karl Rove is watching Hermans likes and so is Romney who gained just 1500 since last Tuesday. THIS is the way to stick it to the GOP establishment! Please tell your family and friends to like Herman as well.
Can’t wait the video of Perry in the steam-room with the three transgendered Inuit dwarves hits YouTube!
Uh, when I was single I was invited to a married man’s hotel room (he was in town for our company doing management training).....I turned HIM down....Not that I don’t think women do that sort of thing, BUT, I’d say it’s at LEAST even steven.
Unnamed, invisible, political enemy accusers. Now we see the “charges” evolve from sexual harrassment to “inappropriate behavior”. Cain will easily beat these slime. I just sent him $25.
Keep it coming Perrywinkle, Romney and your demrat controllers. Next invented allegation will result in me sending Cain another $25. This is one way we can shut this BS down.
We will not allow you pieces of crap to lynch this man.
Remember .... Obama also said he wouldn't run. Multiple times.
This is all a lot of dust being flung to cloud up Cain's wholesome, moral record. Obviously they have nothing really serious to use to detract from his honorable character, so they are trying to create chaos and keep him off balance and off the important issues.
The problem I have are these words ANONYMOUS and INAPPROPRIATE.
I like to put a face on these people who are accusing Herman Cain of doing something inappropriate.
While were at it, lets get to specifics, EXACTLY what did he do that was inappropriate?
Let’s see EXACTLY what he did before we can determine whether or not it was inappropriate...
All we have now are murky accusations, thats all.
Do you have absolute proof this came from Perry? do you have absolute proof nothing happened? or are you speculating? nothing makes the democrats happier than watching the republicans eat their own.
I view it differently. I think we’re seeing, finally, the utter rejection of the demrat pols (including Perry and Romney) and their politics of personal destruction tactics.
But this is not only about Cain. It is about us, too. We must stand up for this man. The way to do that is to send him money. Just sent him $25. Wish it could have been more. In any case, every time Perry, Romney and their demrat controller scum invent a new scandal I’m sending Cain more money.
We are in a final fight for the soul of our country. Anybody that doesn’t get that gets nothing. If you can do nothing else send Mr. Cain money—now. You can make a difference.
That’s the ticket. Send him more money. If we all do it eventually these sub humans may get it. Invent a Cain scandal more money to Cain.
There is no truth in saying an individual cannot make a difference. You can send money. Thousands of individual donations will add up. It’s time to commit folks. No holding back if you really care about your country. There is no one else to do it. The ball is in your court.
IIRC For something to be considered sexual harassment, an “offer” such as “you wanna come to my private mansion and get freaky”? Has to be declined and told to stop, if it stops, no harm done, if it continues then it is sexual harassment. I could care less if he asked her to his private residence, if she said no, don’t ask me again and it stopped, there is no big deal, hypothetically. These reports are false anyway, and everyone sees through this as a terribly planned and executed fake hit piece.
AS THE FOOL CARRIES ON!
“I hope the bad things in life happen to you, and only you. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go put some water in Buck Nasty’s mama’s dish.”
“Cant wait the video of Perry in the steam-room with the three transgendered Inuit dwarves hits YouTube!”
*SECOND* TRANSGENDERED INUIT DWARF COMES FORWARD WITH PERRY STEAM-ROOM SCANDAL!
Perry’s only comment: “Hey! At least MY transgendered inuit dwarf was American, unlike Mitt Romney’s illegal transgendered inuit dwarf!”
Good grief, do we really have another YEAR (+) OF THIS?!
