Former Lobbyist Herman Cain Relies on Legal Definitions for Defense of Sexual Harassment Flip Flop

Former lobbyist and Republican Presidential Candidate, Herman Cain, has accumulated  additional troubles related to the two sexual harassment allegations, which , he , at first, denied. Initially, he adamantly denied the POLITICO stories his tenure as head of the National Restaurant Association. Following Cain’s denial on Fox News, one of the women has asked the National Restaurant

Association to lift the settlement “gag” order on discussing the harassment settlement which included $35,000 --- the amount of one year’s salary for her. In addition, a second woman claims that Cain himself has waived terms of the confidentiality agreement by  discussing the case.

Joel Bennett, an attorney for one of the women said that reporters have camped out on his client’s lawn. The attorney who is married to a federal employee told CBS News,“

"I think the National Restaurant Association ought to waive the confidentiality and non-disparagement provisions and let the two women, if they choose to do so, come forward and tell their stories so that it can get a complete public airing," Bennett said. Cain told Fox News, “there are legal implications with which I am not familiar.”

He stressed, “I have not used their name(s),” arguing that he had not waived the confidentiality agreement(s). The candidate on Fox said, “as CEO of the Cain campaign, I made a conscious decision not to respond to anonymous allegations,” adding at the time he was not aware of a second LEGAL allegation.
