A third woman who worked at the National Restaurant Association when GOP presidential contender Herman Cain was the trade group’s top executive has come forward to say that she, too, experienced “aggressive and unwanted behavior” when she worked for him in the 1990s, The Associated Press reports.

 

The woman, who asked for anonymity, said that she also considered filing a complaint and that the incidences, which included suggestive remarks and gestures and an invitation to his corporate apartment, took place around the same time that the other two women settled their complaints against him.

 

The employee is not the only one to come forward. In an interview on KTOK’s Mullins in the Morning radio show, Oklahoma political consultant Chris Wilson said that he personally witnessed an incident that led to the complaint filed by one of the two women, whom he said was a low-level staffer, just out of college one or two years.

 

“I was the pollster at the National Restaurant Association when Herman Cain was head of it and I was around a couple of times when this happened and anyone who was involved with the NRA at the time, knew that this was gonna come up," Wilson said.
