Times: Cain Accuser Will Not Go Public

The woman who accused GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment in the late 1990s will not go public with her allegations, The New York Times reported Wednesday night.

Joel P. Bennett, the lawyer for one of the women who has made accusations against Cain, told the Times that his client had decided not to go public or to make a public statement herself in an effort to shield herself from the media frenzy swirling around the situation.

“She’s not going to affirmatively make any public statements or public appearances about the case, everything will be through me,” Mr. Bennett said. “She has a life to live and a career, and she doesn’t want to become another Anita Hill.”

Bennett said he would send on Thursday a proposed statement to the National Restaurant Association in which he would make clear that his client’s version of the events between herself and Cain were different from the version that the presidential candidate has offered.

The goal is to get the association to agree that the statement would not violate a nondisclosure agreement on his client when she left the group in the late 1990s.

“She certainly wanted to say something counter to what Mr. Cain has been saying,” he said, adding that he hoped the statement would help restore her reputation and validate the claims she made at the time.

“As of now, my expectation is that it will not go into details about the incident. She does not want to do that,” he said. “This is a statement that she feels sets forth her position in a fair and honest way.”
