AP: Third Employee Says She Was Harassed by Herman Cain


A third former employee says she considered filing a workplace complaint over what she considered aggressive and unwanted behavior by Herman Cain when she worked for the presidential candidate in the 1990s. She says the behavior included a private invitation to his corporate apartment.

She worked for the National Restaurant Association when he was its head. She told The Associated Press that Cain made sexually suggestive remarks or gestures about the same time that two co-workers had settled separate harassment complaints against him.

The employee described situations in which she said Cain told her he had confided to colleagues how attractive she was and invited her to his corporate apartment outside work.

Herman's day just got a lot longer.

The woman also alleges that:

... the behavior included a private invitation to his corporate apartment.

Which would explain his earlier need to have the question be more specific about inviting women to his hotel room.

Publicity seeking or another nail in the Cain campaign's coffin?
