WASHINGTON (AP) -- A third woman considered filing a workplace complaint against Herman Cain over what she deemed aggressive and unwanted behavior when she and Cain, now a Republican presidential candidate, worked together during the late 1990s, the woman told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
She said the behavior included a private invitation to his corporate apartment.

I am sick of this crap the media does. They made excuses for Clinton, and go ballistic over the slightest little thing that a Republican does, hoping the evangelicals will throw a potential threat to the Dems under the bus.
Well after years of this crapola, I DON'T CARE what they dig up as long as it was not violent, criminal assault or fraudulent. PERIOD - END OF STORY.
“..in other news today, Cardinal4 tearfully claimed Herman Cain sexually harrassed him..
Herman is over the target, he is taking flak..and a donation from me..
I’ll bet that all those who have complained are liberal leftists. Conservative women don’t seem to be so paranoid as the leftist and can take a little joking and jousting. And hey they are a damn sight better looking than the lefist whiners. Think Sarah Palin, and Michele Bachmann. Then think Nancy Pelosi, and you Helen Thomas. See what I mean?
Some FR mail for you buddy.
The telling factor is his frequent posting. He's on the job right now, and trying to earn a living.
yeah, but, but, he almost did something three times.
like the ‘bell almost rang three times.’
Think about it.
I was thought she was underage, where did you find that information?
Politico is far left wing and only interested in taking Cain down. If zero had to run against another black man with a business history he knows he's done.
This is only important if there is something there.
On this we can perhaps agree: unless the Hermster is a fool, he had to know there was a chance these allegations would come to light. So, assuming he is not a fool, he went forward knowing he was in the right.
If this is the case, what should our position be - to write him off? Stick a fork in him?
If he is the man he appears to be, he will weather this storm and we'll all be the better off.
Unless you think he is a fool - or an egomaniac (for thinking he could get away with it...).
I agree. While I will say, overall, this doesn’t look good for Cain, there has to be some accountability in reporting. Someone has to step forward or it shouldn’t be printed.
The lawyer Bennett’s client (if she really exists) has now refused to come forward. But she is not going away. She will continue to accuse Cain “through” Bennett.
Journalism is officially dead. And if Cain’s opponents don’t step up right now and say this kind of surreal bull$hit is *unacceptable*, then the Republic is dead too.
Like any decent waitress, I kept his coffee cup refilled as I went about the afternoon cleanup work. He talked to me off and on, telling me about the chain of restaurants he owned. He asked me to come with him to California and work in one of his restaurants more than once. I politely declined.
I only remember it because he left me a $10.00 tip. I guess some would consider it harassment. I just considered it another day in the life of a waitress. I had certainly experienced worse. Polite snappy comebacks was the way we always dealt with that sort of stuff back then.
I knew a woman who got a $50 bill as a tip from a customer. No small talk, no propositions. She thinks that he meant to leave a $5, but made a mistake, so she kept it in an envelope for him, if he came back. He never did, and she kept the money.
Kind of like being a “little bit pregnant”. Either yes or no.
That’s interesting. I worked at several restaurants before I got my college degree, and the $10.00 tip was not the biggest I ever had.
But it was the biggest I ever had for a cup of coffee and pie which was only about a $1.00 tab. LOL.
I’ve mentioned over the years that in 2000 I know the Gore campaign was peddling a smear on GW Bush, which I still don’t repeat the details of out of respect for President Bush.
My point is, the press then refused to run with the story even against a republican, but they are stooping that low now against Cain.
Agreed. If I’m Perry or Romney (sounds like Newt has already voiced his support?), I get in front of a TV camera pronto and condemn these nameless, baseless allegations for what they are - a smear campaign.
Even if afterwards the allegations prove true - or Cain concedes, they still come out ahead for standing up to the smear.
Their silence in this matter is deafening - and more than a little troubling.
D@mn it Pubbies - DO THE RIGHT THING FOR ONCE!!!
