Fifth Woman Says Cain Was Innapropriate

A former employee of the United States Agency for International Development says GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain asked her to set up a dinner date with a woman in the audience following a paid speech he gave nine years ago.

Donna Donella, 40, of Arlington, Va., told the Washington Examiner that the agency paid Cain to present the speech in Egypt in 2002, during which an Egyptian businesswoman in her 30s asked Cain a question.

Afterward, "Cain came over to me and a colleague and said, 'Could you put me in touch with that lovely young lady who asked the question, so I can give her a more thorough answer over dinner?" Donella said.

Donella declined, to which Cain responded, "Then you and I can have dinner."

She and her colleagues were suspicious of Cain's motives, so they suggested a group outing. Cain exhibited no inappropriate sexual behavior during the dinner but, Donella complainged, he did order two $400 bottles of wine and didn't pay the bill.

"I couldn't swear that he had some untoward intentions, but we all thought his tone was suspect, and we didn't feel comfortable putting him in touch with that woman," Donella said.
