Skip to comments.The Daily Names One Cain Accuser, And She Works In The Obama Administration
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 only incidents that have any credibility are the 2 where complaints were filed and monies paid. NRA has dropped the confidentiality clauses. Can he publish the documents with names redacted? It would go a long way

Steve Berkey Pretty cool. Never knew you worked for him. The MI connection doesn’t hurt either.

Karen Kraushaar Yup, he was my first boss. I had a job in the White House, summer of 1976. It was fun.. Typed a lot of Presidential thank you notes and enjoyed the fireworks celebrating the Bicentennial.

RT @HeyTammyBruce: As a friend just noted to me, this woman does not sound like a liar, she’s very credible. This is very bad news for Cain
Welcome to Free Republic.
Very odd that your first post to FR is this to me hinting that the woman worked for Gerald Ford when she was a kid for a summer in 1976. What does this matter? Do you have a link to the information?
She works for Barack Obama now as an adult.
“Well, at least she is not trailer trash...”
Are you sure? Maybe she just ‘cleans up’ pretty well.
She posted that on her facebook page I was just adding to the info that she is very involved in government.
Also sorry to post to you directly I could not figure out how to post so I just hit reply to the last thing I read. Help if you can I would appreciate it. Thanks
The cute one, on the right. LOL
All the media are documenting every slight change in emphasis that comes from Cain's mouth. I wonder if anyone has the time to see the twists and turns of the accusser story - if was a non-sexual gesture and now it's painted as he practically grabbed her by the hair to drag her to bed.
Interesting that they can only get testimonials from relatives ... makes me think more and more that the Politico reporter is her relative - these were the only phone numbers he had available for fact checkers [LOL!] to call - relatives.
Just one word of advice..tread lightly while you are getting the hang of things. We have lots of liberal trolls trying to post here and if they are sniffed out..they get the zot. Your post raised my viking kitty ears because you were new and there wasn’t much context there, other than what looked like an attempt to put this woman in a republican administration and take the heat off of Obama.
We always welcome true conservatives though. Most folks will try to post a link to stuff they bring in from other sources too.
Welcome to Free Republic.
As communications director for the Treasury Dept’s inspector general,no less. The “Janice Okubo for the person who’s supposed to be keeping an eye on Turbo Tax Timmy.
Unbelievable. I wonder if the Treasury Dept was one of the 5 or 6 agencies whose IG’s were illegally fired by the Obama people...
Where did you see that the NRA lifted both agreements? I cannot find evidence there even IS a second agreement outside what Politico says.
She certainly does want to hurt Cain’s Republican candidate chances for president though. If she did not, she would come out and say just what was the harrassment Cain made toward her. If Cain were smart he would demand that the National Resturant Assn make public the allegations made against him. If he doesn’t do this, it looks like he really is guilty of some kind of sexual harrassment. I don’t think he has to care about the 4th accuser as she is not a credible victim.
Are we sure this isn’t Cindy Sheehan?
Gee what a surprise. It seems that so far both women are connected politically to people who are against Cain. What are the odds?
All these women have ties to extreme liberals one way or another. This woman worked for a CNN correspondent Maria Cardona who is an extreme leftist who hates Herman Cain. She was just on with Blitzer and ripped into Cain calling him a monster.
You ask if Josh at POLITICO may have a connection, probably is what I say. POLITICO has its nose so far up O’s hind end it’s obvious and they don’t even try to hide it... if they ever did
Five accusers: one Obama administration employee, one psycho who hugged Cain just last month, and three who are completely anonymous and provide no details. Yep, according to the MSM, that’s justification for settling for Romney.
I’d hit her................with a stick
Her brother-in-law, who is vouching for her honesty, is the guy who leaked her name.
Cain has some rights under that agreement, by the way. The Restaurant Association was representing him, as well.
As for Allred’s babe, I refer you to Mr. James Carville.
As I understand it,it was her brother-in-law who “outed” her.
I heard Shep say tonight there were 5 accusers. I only know of 4. Supposedly 3 at NRA, of which Karen Kraushaar is one (Bennett’s client) and Sharon Bialek. Am I missing one somewhere? Can somebody publish a Herman Cain ScoreCard so we can keep track of all these women?
I hear Bill Clinton has called Cain asking if Herman would throw a few bimbo’s his way.
[ But then again, anyone who at this stage can publicly associate with the Democrat (COMMUNIST PIG FECES) Party HAS NONE! ]
Like; Romney, McLame, Graham, Snowe, Lugar, the super congress committee.. sometimes Perry, Hunstman, and Newt?..
If she works in the Obama administration she is FAR BELOW trailer trash.
Not too common a name.
VANITY- Is Cain Accuser who works for Obama also related to a Politico Reporter?
His twitter feed says: “If anyone was wondering, I am NOT related to Karen Kraushaar, the woman who accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment. Strange coincidence.”
color me surprised......
So she waited 10 years to mention it and it just happened to coincidentally coincide with Cain's bid for the Republican nomination of r presidency?
Someone’s nose is growing.
That’s it. Every week we should have one more lying bimbo accusing Cain like this so our punditry will have all week to smear and sully her whatever she is, whoever, what she looks like, what she doesn’t, let’s just have 20 straight hours of political talk 7 days a week defending Cain, attacking the liar women, reminding us that the media are a bunch of hypocrites (because before St. Cain came along none of us realized it) and making sure we nominate a no-win candidate who will lose 49 states but makes us FEEL GOOD about being racially pure conservatives, not sellouts to whitey.
And then we can hold a convention every year to sit around and talk about how great 9-9-9 would be if only it would pass Congress!
The conservative movement in America?
As for Cain, he should vow to not stop until he’s groped every woman in America.
(Or at least sold them a gospel CD.)
If Romney is nominated it will be peddle to the metal on every possible weird thing Mormons believe or do and presented in the **worst* and **most** damaging manner imaginable.
BET ON IT! ( Yeah! I am shouting. The Marxist Media make me sick!)
and drop-dead gorgeous, too.
good...another white woman....
