Cain Accuser Stands By Harassment Claim

One of the women who accused GOP presidential contender Herman Cain of sexual harassment in the late 1990s “stands by the complaint she made,” when both worked at the National Restaurant Association, her lawyer said on Friday. Attorney Joel P. Bennett said his married client, “made a complaint in good faith about a series of inappropriate behaviors and unwanted advances from the C.E.O” and accepted a financial agreement. Bennett said his client strongly disputes Cain’s statements that the harassment allegations are baseless. "Mr. Cain knows the specifics," of several incidents he told reporters. But he said his client and her husband do not want to come forward to discuss the matter, The New York Times reported. “In fact, it would be extremely painful to do so,” Bennett said.
