Herman Cain Harassment
November 2, 2011 by staff
Herman Cain Harassment, Herman Cain in the presidential campaign continued to struggle with the damage control today as questions swirled about the inconsistencies in the history of the candidate for sexual harassment complaints, first reported by Politico.
In the clearest sign that his campaign is serious about the controversy, The New York Times reported that the private famous Cain’s wife, Gloria, is in talks to sit for an interview with Greta Van Susteren FOX News Channel Friday the night.
Cain had said earlier that his wife prefers to concentrate on his family life to accompany him on the campaign trail.
Politico reported Sunday that at least two former female staff members of the National Restaurant Association complained to his colleagues on “sexually suggestive behavior” by Cain, when he served as president of the trade association in the 1990s. Political, said women were paid separation of the association after his accusations.
The former CEO of Godfather Pizza – who served as president and CEO of the NRA between 1996 and 1999 – first, said Monday that he was unaware of the settlements with former employees.
However, in subsequent interviews, Mr. Cain acknowledged that he had knowledge of a formal complaint of sexual harassment by a member of Washington’s communications staff and turned the matter to the NRA general counsel and director of human resources, that “it seemed unfounded.”
Today, Cain blamed the inconsistencies in a hazy memory.
“After 12 hours during the day, many events, many interviews, I was able to recover gradually more and more details about what happened 12 years ago,” Cain told CNN HLN. “I was not given the opportunity to think about it for a day before I had to start answering questions.”
Meanwhile, one of his accusers reportedly wants to share her version of events, despite currently being blocked by the non-disclosure agreement he signed with the NRA.
“It’s frustrating that Herman Cain is going around saying bad things about the two complainants, and my client is blocked by a confidentiality agreement,” said her lawyer, Joel P Bennett, told The Washington Post. “The National Restaurant Association released and allowed to respond.”
Bennett later told Politico that he would petition the General Council of the NRA asks that non-disclosure language be removed from the liquidation of the woman.
“I will ask you to send me something in writing saying that they are giving to the relevant paragraphs of resolution 1999,” he said.
NRA officials responded to Bennett, said he would handle requests, provided they received.
“We’ve seen the reports of the media that the attorney Joel Bennett is publicly making requests on behalf of a former employee of the National Restaurant Association. Bennett has not been in contact with the Association. If we are in contact with Mr. Bennett, we will respond as appropriate, “Sue Hensley, senior vice president of communications for public affairs for the NRA, said in a statement delivered to Fox News Channel.
In an interview today with Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier, Cain asked if women should be freed of tenders.
“I can not answer that now, Bret, because there are legal implications,” said Cain, adding that he would discuss the matter with an attorney.
When pressed on whether he had broken the agreement itself discussing the accusations of the media, the candidate said no. “Having never used his name,” said Cain. “One of them, I did not even know the name.”
Mr. Cain also suggested that his race may have been a motivation in the revelation of the story.
“I think the answer is yes, but we have no evidence to support it,” Cain said to Fox News when asked by FOX contributor Charles Krauthammer if he believed that race was a factor.
“We believe that yes, there are some people who are Democrats, liberals do not want to see me win the nomination, and could have some people on the right that does not want me -. Because I’m not the appointment, the establishment candidate unquote “he said.
“In relation to the left believe that race is a factor bigger,” he continued. “I do not think it is a determining factor on the right.”
As ain continued to deny the accusations, calling them part of a “smear campaign”, which may have given a boost to his war booty of the campaign.
Fox News reported that Mr. Cain campaign uses the scandal to achieve its best-ever day in terms of total fundraising on Monday, bringing in and 290,000.
