Karen Kraushaar Becomes Second Herman Cain Accuser to Go Public

by at . Comments

Karen Kraushaar was sexually harassed by Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain in the 1990s and left her job because of it, she said yesterday.

The became the second woman to come forward and put a name and face behind accusations that Cain sexually harassed her when she worked for him.

Karen Kraushaar, now a spokeswoman for the Inspector General's Office in the U.S Treasury Department and a former journalist, is pictured below:

Kraushaar was one of the two women who received a financial settlement of about $45,000 after accusing Cain of sexual harassment in the 1990s. She worked at the National Restaurant Association while Cain headed the trade group.

Sharon Bialek, who went public earlier, offered many more details.

"She is a professional who had to leave her job because of Herman Cain. It is quite simple," a former National Restaurant Association employee said of Kraushaar.

The latest Herman Cain accuser told the N.Y. Times she hoped she and other accusers might hold a joint press conference "where all of the women would be together with our attorneys and all of this evidence would be considered together."

"These allegations can be considered together as a body of evidence."

Cain said Kraushaar's allegations were the only ones he remembered, but that they - like the rest of the salacious claims made against him - are not credible.

Will sexual harassment allegations derail the Cain Train?

Ok, I can give anyone the benefit of the doubt. But the way this guy has handled these allegations is the issue for me. He's a liar. NOBODY pays an accuser $45K over "baseless" allegations. I hope he enjoyed his 15 mins bc it's over. Adios Mr Cain. You're an arrogant liar. You've used your position to sexually abuse women. You're a weak man w/ 0 character.
