Karen Kraushaar, a federal civil servant, has been identified as one of the women who received a cash settlement after accusing Herman Cain of sexual harassment.
Her attorney Joel Bennett said, I cannot deny that, after her identity was reported by The Daily, a Web newspaper.
Kraushaar told ABC News that she wanted to do a joint press conference if the other women are interested. Kraushaar is now a spokeswoman for the inspector general at the Internal Revenue Service.
When you are being sexually harassed in the workplace, you are extremely vulnerable, she told The New York Times. You do whatever you can to quickly get yourself into a job some place safe and that is what I thought I had achieved when I left.
During a press conference, Bennett said Mr. Cain knows the specifics of the harassment complaint his client filed against him in 1999.
In the meantime, Cain does not seem to recall much about the incident.
I referenced this lady's height and I was standing near her, and I did this saying, you're the same height of my wife, because my wife is five feet tall and she comes up to my chin, Cain told CNN. This lady's five feet tall and she came up to my chin. So obviously she thought that that was too close for comfort. It showed up in the actual allegation. Other than that, I can't even recall what some of the other things were.
