One of the women who accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment wants to come forward and tell her side of the story publicly. So says her lawyer.
Lawyer Joel P. Bennett called on the National Restaurant Association, where the woman and Cain worked in the late 1990s, to release the woman from her written promise not to talk about the allegations or disparage the trade group. “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 said. “The National Restaurant Association ought to release them and allow them to respond.”
The lawyer says that Cain has already effectively waived the confidentiality agreement by telling his own version of events.
