Karen Kraushaar, Herman Cain sexual harassment accuser, goes public
One of Herman Cain's original accusers confirmed to CBS News that she received a settlement from the National Restaurant Association after accusing Cain of sexual harassment.
Karen Kraushaar, 55, is currently a spokesperson for the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at the Treasury Department.
Kraushaar told CBS News that she is interested in holding a press conference with all of the women who claim they were harassed by Cain.
"The whole situation is so volatile right now, I just don't want to say anymore," Kraushaar told CBS News.
On Friday, the National Restaurant Association agreed to waive a confidentiality agreement that barred her from discussing her complaints. Her attorney, Joel Bennett, told reporters last week that his client had reported a series of incidents involving Cain when she worked in the communications department at the National Restaurant Association in the late 1990s.
