Cain accuser ‘stands by the complaint’

The attorney for Herman Cains accuser in a 1999 sexual harassment case said Friday that his client stands by the complaint that she made.

The womans attorney, Joel Bennett, declined to reveal additional details about the nature of the incidents, citing the womans desire to stay out of the spotlight. He did note that he believes Cain was no longer at the association when the womans complaint was settled. That means Cain was not a party to the agreement and is not bound by a confidentiality obligation. He headed the trade group from 1996 to 1999.
