the Daily named one of the women who filed a sexual harassment claim against Republican front-runner Herman Cain while he was CEO of the National Restaurant Association.
The woman, identified by the paper as Karen Kraushaar, now works as communications director at the Treasury Department’s Office of the Inspector General.
Cain has sought to downplay the charge — calling it frivolous — saying she overreacted to a gesture comparing her height to his wife’s.
But the paper spoke to friends and family members of Kraushaar who vouch for her honesty — saying she is not the type to bring false allegations.
“She wouldn’t be the type to make false allegations,” brother-in-law Ned Kraushaar, a Georgia software consultant, told The Daily. “This happened [more than] 10 years ago. It’s not like she wanted to try and hurt the Republican Party.”
Joel Bennett, her attorney, held a press conference on Friday to say that his client would not speak publicly.
