Herman Cain is in play now more than he ever was before.
Alleged victim and Accuser No. 3 rains on Herman Cain’s campaign parade with her accusations of sexual harassment.
Frank James, a seasoned political writer who hosts IT’S ALL POLITICS Blog for NPR wrote:
Herman Cain’s sexual harassment crisis worsened Wednesday with a third woman telling a news organization that he sexually harassed her when they both worked at the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.

According to the Associated Press, the third woman has asked that her name not be made public out of fear of retaliation.
But the story she told the news agency offered some of the sharpest details yet of Cain’s alleged actions when he served as the unpaid chair of the restaurant association from 1996 to 1999.
A third former employee says she considered filing a workplace complaint over what she considered aggressive and unwanted behavior by Herman Cain when she worked for the presidential candidate in the 1990s. She says the behavior included a private invitation to his corporate apartment.
She worked for the National Restaurant Association when he was its head. She told The Associated Press that Cain made sexually suggestive remarks or gestures about the same time that two co-workers had settled separate harassment complaints against him.
The employee described situations in which she said Cain told her he had confided to colleagues how attractive she was and invited her to his corporate apartment outside work. She spoke on condition of anonymity, saying she feared retaliation.
Cain’s campaign declined to comment.

When will the rain of accusations stop?
The problems with Accuser No. 3 and her story are: (a) that she did not complain about the alleged harassment to the NRA when it happened; and (b) she does not want to reveal her identity.
Of course, as noted in the AP report sourced by James, Accuser No. 3 “offered some of the sharpest details yet of Cain’s alleged actions.” There’s no way to verify what she’s alleging. But yet, her accusations are getting coverage in mainstream political media!
What other mystery women will surface and leak their stories of alleged harassment to the media and get mainstream coverage?
At this rate, there could be unverifiable accusations from a slew of undisclosed women every day of the week against Herman Cain and anyone else until the Iowa Primary!!
Is this what we expect as the best in political journalism from mainstream media?
