Presidential candidate Herman Cain must tell the National Restaurant Association to make public any information on the sexual harassment charges brought against him when he headed the group and free his accusers from any legal restraints barring them from speaking out, Republican strategist Karl Rove said.
The former top adviser to President George W. Bush made his comments in a radio interview on "Kilmeade and Friends," Politico reports. www.politico.com/news/stories/1111/67451.html
The "only way to get past this" is for Cain to "get the National Restaurant Association to release its report" on harassment charges leveled against him, Rove said.
Rove said Cain has told his side of the story, adding, "It's gonna look unfair if he doesn't take proactive measures to encourage the restaurant association to allow the women in question to come forward."
The women have signed confidentiality agreements in connection with settlements about their allegations.
Cain’s campaign has been rocked this week since Politico reported that two employees of the National Restaurant Association accused him of sexual harassment when he was the group’s CEO in the late 1990s. He has denied harassing anyone.
