An attorney for one of the three women who have accused Republican front-runner Herman Cain with sexual harassment says she will not come forward, telling The New York Times “she doesn’t want to become another Anita Hill.”
The paper reported that the lawyer, Joel Bennett, will provide a statement from his client to the National Restaurant Association pushing back against Cain’s denials, and will ask the NRA to agree that it does not violate her confidentiality agreement.
“She’s not going to affirmatively make any public statements or public appearances about the case, everything will be through me,” Bennett told the Times. “She has a life to live and a career, and she doesn’t want to become another Anita Hill.”
