A Second Accuser Goes Public Against Cain (JIM RUTENBERG AND MICHAEL D. SHEAR, 11/08/11, NY Times)

Karen Kraushaar, one of the two women who settled sexual harassment claims against Herman Cain with the National Restaurant Association, spoke publicly for the first time on Tuesday about her allegations against him.

Moments later, a defiant Mr. Cain, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, once again declared her allegations to have been found "baseless" and repeated his claim that his only offense against her was to have made a gesture about her height.

Mr. Cain's denials came in a nationally televised news conference in Phoenix in which he railed against a "Democratic machine" even as Ms. Kraushaar joined Sharon Bialek, a Chicago woman, in publicly accusing Mr. Cain of inappropriate behavior.

...he's unfit to lead our party, nevermind our republic.
