Sexual Harassment Claims Leveled at Cain

Politico has reported that two women who worked at the National Restaurant Association where Republican presidential nominee Herman Cain was the CEO were paid settlements to quiet sexual harassment claims. Cain has admitted that he was accused of sexual harassment in the 1990s but insisted the allegations were without merit.

Conservative supporters of Cain are comparing the claims to Anita Hill’s claims against then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. However, there was no documentary evidence to support Anita Hill’s claims like there appears to be in the womens’ settlement with Cain.
