Karen Kraushaar, a US Treasury spokesman, was revealed as one of two women to have received five–figure payouts from the National Restaurant Association after complaining about Mr Cain in the 1990s.
Mrs Kraushaar, 55, of Maryland, last night described Mr Cain as “a monster”. Her lawyer, Joel Bennett, said that she suffered “multiple incidents over multiple days” with Mr Cain, who was president of the Washington–based lobbying organisation until 1999.
She told an interview she felt “extremely vulnerable” and left the group in the hope of finding “a job some place safe”. She called for all of Mr Cain’s alleged victims to hold a “joint press conference”.
Mr Cain insists he merely told Mrs Kraushaar: “You’re the same height as my wife” and gestured to his chin while together in his office. “The door was open,” he said last night. “My secretary was right there”.
