Herman Cain doesn’t appear eager to allow the women who levied sexual harassment charges against him to give their side of the story. Hmmm, wonder why that is.
One of the women who accused White House contender Herman Cain of sexual harassment wants to go public.
A second accuser got a year’s salary to settle her allegation against Cain, it was reported Tuesday night.
The lawyer for the woman who wants to speak out, Joel Bennett, told The Washington Post he’s asked the National Restaurant Association to ditch the confidentiality agreement that bars his client from dishing about her claims against Cain.
“It is just frustrating that Herman Cain is going around bad-mouthing the two complainants, and my client is blocked by a confidentiality agreement,” Bennett told the paper.
“The National Restaurant Association ought to release [the complainants from the gag order] and allow them to respond.”
The married Cain didn’t seem thrilled by that prospect.
Asked on Fox News whether he’d ask the trade association to lift the gag order, Cain replied: “I can’t answer that now.”
“There are legal implications. If the restaurant association waives that … I just found out about this today.”
“There are legal implications associated with that that I am not familiar with yet. So I can’t give you a definitive answer on that until we consult with our legal attorneys and also talk to some others.”
Bennett said he represents one of the two women, an Ivy Leaguer who now works for the federal government.
She has not sought the limelight, but if the gag order is lifted, “then it is a whole new ballgame,” Bennett said.
Wow… @ “whole new ballgame.” Generally this is the way that confidentiality agreements work, the broads took the money on the condition they wouldn’t talk! At the same time it’s wild that Hermie can just say whatever he wants and make them look crazy cuz they’re not allowed to speak.
It ain’t looking good for Herm right now, but fortunately his wife Gloria is about to have her moment in the spotlight.
