Kraushaar Denies Allegation Was Over Height Comparison

Karen Kraushaar, who received a settlement from the National Restaurant Association after charging Herman Cain with sexual harassment, told CNN she might give details about what exactly she accused Cain of doing. Asked about Cain’s comments that all he had done was tell Kraushaar she was the same height as his wife, Kraushaar responded, “A comment like that is so innocuous it wasn’t even a part of my complaint.”

Kraushaar also filed a complaint against her next employer in 2002, reports the Associated Press:

A woman who settled a sexual harassment complaint against GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain in 1999 complained three years later at her next job about unfair treatment, saying she should be allowed to work from home after a serious car accident and accusing a manager of circulating a sexually charged email, The Associated Press has learned.

Karen Kraushaar, 55, filed the complaint while working as a spokeswoman at the Immigration and Naturalization Service in the Justice Department in late 2002 or early 2003, with the assistance of her lawyer, Joel Bennett, who also handled her earlier sexual harassment complaint against Cain in 1999. Three former supervisors familiar with Kraushaar’s complaint, which did not include a claim of sexual harassment, described it for the AP under condition of anonymity because the matter was handled internally by the agency and was not public.
