Joel P. Bennett, the lawyer for one of the women who has made accusations against Mr. Cain, said that his client had decided not to go public or to make a public statement herself in an effort to shield herself from the media frenzy swirling around the situation.
Shes not going to affirmatively make any public statements or public appearances about the case, everything will be through me, Mr. Bennett said. She has a life to live and a career, and she doesnt want to become another Anita Hill.

Well, that and she is completely full of shit.
In that case, how can we even be sure there *is* a woman? Bennett could be making this whole thing up.
Until someone offers her 6 figures for her story!
The next sound you hear will be the sound of the Cain Harrassment Story fading into oblivion...
Well said !
LMAO! You'll never see her. You'll never hear her. But she will continue to accuse Cain of indefinite, but still very naughty, behavior through me. And she really does exist, too. Really! I am not making her up.
NO ONE is more disappointed than the lawyer Bennett. He was looking at new vacation home from this retainer.
I met Cain at the Peabody hotel the weekend of the Florida straightpoll. I was six feet from him. (True)
He LOOKED at me (ya know) in an odd way. I was very uncomfortable. I am going to file charges tomorrow. /sarc
then she shoulda kept her mouth shut
A new shyster niche may be emerging for ambulance chasers - imagine the billboards: Slander people anonymously - Let me say it for you!
Um.... horse.... left.... barn.
How’s this for a deep, dark secret...the great detective, Remington Steel...he doesn’t exist. I invented him....
To all those who wish to see Cain destroyed, your failure to come to his defense over this BS has now legitimized this kind of surreal attack. And your guy, whether it’s Romney or Perry, is going to get it this way when he squares off against Obama next year.
“My client does not wish to come forward, but through me wishes to reveal the despicable harassment she suffered at the hand of Mr. Obama’s opponent....”
Like the Perry guy: ‘Trust me, it’s really bad, but I won’t tell you what it is’. Sordid dirty tricks from the Perry camp against Cain.
Your missing the point. Bennett didn't say the woman was going away. He said she will continue to speak, but only through him. Bennett isn't going anywhere. He's going to continue be the source for this woman, whose existence we'll now never be able to confirm. She might be completely fictitious. I believe this is a watershed moment for journalistic standards.
This attorney Bennett told WaPo that he didn't have any records of the case, nor a copy of the "confidentiality agreement." Apparently it was a couple phone calls and that's all, which means she had no case. Damn right she doesn't want the Anita Hill treatment. Hill was exposed as a proven liar too.
Well, so far it has improved his fund raising! In fact, everytime I hear another allegation I write another check.
I doubt her name will remain secret for long. That said, she is smart to at least attempt to stay out of the fray. Her life will never be the same once she has the rat media camped out on her front lawn.
Plus, there's no evidence whatsoever that his former client has spoken to him in the last 12 years.
I second that!
I don’t know about other folks experiences but I’d have to say that the bleeding edge-effect peak period of invasive political correctness in the workplace was in that era from 1998 through 2002 or so.
By “bleeding edge-effect peak” I mean the period where folks of old school ethos were getting ambushed by the politically correct scalp-seekers.
Or it was a tempest in a teapot, and she realized that in talking she would be exposed.
The atty already admitted not having any paperwork, or details.
Give the media credit: they know how to turn anything that happens in the world into some kind of argument against a Republican with national standing.
Her lawyer will be the public face.
She does not want to become another Anita Hill.
Bennett will send a statement to the NRA on Thursday
for their approval.
The statement “ would make clear that his clients version
of the events between herself
and Mr. Cain were different
from the version that the presidential
candidate has offered.”
Apparently, the media knows who both women are
and are camped outside their homes.
One outlet reported that one woman now lives in New Jersey
and the other in Maryland .
“ an ABC News investigation found that both women
are highly respected professionals who have gone
on to successful careers in
and around government.”
They were being protected as HANDICAPPED INDIVIDUALS.
Cain and company had few options here but the woman DID SOMETHING that singled her out as a PROBLEM.
But you'd better believe alcohol is at the bottom of this.
Now we`re at three chicken-sh*t, anonymous accusers and the “media” is running with it. They`re doing to Cain what they did to Palin, Quayle and others: isolate and attack, and if you don`t have rhetorical ammunition, make it up. The more people hear the lies, the more they`ll believe them.
This was, as he said later, settled over the phone. He may have tossed her stuff the day the check cleared.
Anonymous, you ignorant slut! Bagged-out, dried-up, slunken meat like you and Michelle Triola know the rules. If you want a contract, sign on the dotted line. Oh, but let’s all shed a tear for poor Michelle Triola. There was only testimony that she had sexual intercourse over forty times with another man while living with actor Lee Marvin. But I suppose that sort of fashionable promiscuting means nothing to you, Jane, who hops from bed to bed with the frequency of a cheap ham radio. But hell hath no fury like a woman’s scorn, and Michelle Triola, like a screeching, squealing, reptatious swamp sow is after actor Lee Marvin’s last three million dollars. I guess what you and Michelle are saying is that when you’re on your backs, the meter is running. Well, please spare us, gals, and tell us the rate’s at the top. Then we can choose which two bit tarts and bargain basement sluts to shack up with.
Now imagine if the tables were turned and the candidate were a dem... the “media” would`ve dredged up the woman`s name, her background, tax records and family members` names. And any non-disclosure agreement would count for nothing.
Well, that and she is completely full of shit.
Exactly right. A baseless story based on something that may or may not have happened 20 years, and the demoRATs & media seize on this as if it were solid. But if any similar accusations, without confirmed sources were made about any dimWit politicians, the media whores would be in a frenzy attacking the lawyer speaking on behalf of some unnamed source. What a bunch of frikkin RAT bastard hypocrites the demoRATs & media are!!!
“Well, sweetie, blue looks good on you Monika, but you have this splotch of semen on your dress. Kinda takes away from the allure of your big breasts!”
This is bs and I would say that no matter the political party of the candidate.
Either come forward with accusations or be quiet.
How do we know this woman even says anything or is even involved at this point. The lawyer could be making accusations she hasn’t made.
Plus, there was a privacy agreemement.
Either break it and speak or stay silent.
I can’t believe this 3rd hand gossip bs.
"...she doesnt want to become another Anita Hill."
I wonder if that dress is in Billy Jeff’s presidential library? Monica saved it, after all!
“I believe this is a watershed moment for journalistic standards.”
Those on the other side know full well what they are doing along with a complicit media.
The narrative’s been set, albeit temporarily, that of unsubstantiated allegations, whether true or false, it’s all at the top of the news as well as ticker’s at the bottom of every news outlet.
The powers that be are stacked against Cain, the same ones who had it out for Palin. I think those powers that be KNOW that Cain’s rise is because and from of Palin and her supporters.
We true conservatives love Cain for mostly the same reasons we loved Sarah. Cain was the logical choice from the current lineup for her supporters to turn to when she decided not to run and I fully expect that when the timing is right she will step forward with her endorsement for him. In fact I’ll go so far as to believe that had Cain not entered the race, she would have.
Cain expected all this was going to happen. He knows national politics is a hardball bloodsport.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Cain came out to diffuse this with statements much like those vanity posts that have been popping up here all night.
“BREAKING: Hillary to Bill - My Turn!”
“BREAKING: Helen Thomas sues for lack of sexual harassment from Herman Cain”
“!!Breaking!! Meghan McCain Sexual Harassment Claim”
It’ll be funny as hell with Herman’s sense of humor, it’s part of what makes him appealing to many. (like the ad with the cigarette)
If these accusations are as I assume to be groundless then he will at the same time be calling them on it at the same time.
...until everyone's compared notes and gotten their stories straight.
Well then everything she alleges through you is a lie to me.I also will be contacting sponsors of any show that has you on to let them know I will not be using their products,
Three gold-diggers and ambulance chasers, End of Story.
Deace associates with Palin haters ~ the kind of ridicule her baby.
I don’t care who the politician might be, this is disgustingly unfair.
Cain should be able to face his accuser or she should SFU.
Deace associates with Palin haters ~ the kind WHO (not of) ridicule her baby.
And you know that how? Your kind of response is the reason any woman would be crazy to go on the record for this sort of thing if she could avoid it.
It’s been acknowledged all around that she exists, that she filed a complaint, and got a settlement under nondisclosure terms. She’s not the one who took it to the media, but it’s out there now.
Do you blame her for either wanting her side of the story represented or for not wanting all the trash and hatred such as FReepers have been heaping on her for two days to follow her through her life?
