WASHINGTON (AP) -- A third former employee says she considered filing a workplace complaint over what she considered aggressive and unwanted behavior by Herman Cain when she worked for the presidential candidate in the 1990s. She says the behavior included a private invitation to his corporate apartment.

She worked for the National Restaurant Association when he was its head. She told The Associated Press that Cain made sexually suggestive remarks or gestures about the same time that two co-workers had settled separate harassment complaints against him.

The employee described situations in which she said Cain told her he had confided to colleagues how attractive she was and invited her to his corporate apartment outside work. She spoke on condition of anonymity, saying she feared retaliation.

    The leak actually came from POLITICO. The origin is now supposedly from Perry's camp. No democrat involvement involved. Suppose Reagan would be rolling in his grave right now to know how the republicans are at each others' throats.

    Mr. Cain is not handling this very well. If he had faced it head-on instead of being dodgey and defensive it would have gone much better for him. Americans have had enough political lies and "I don't recall" responses.

    This scandal reminds me of Clarence Thomas, who once said "it's a high-tech lynching" during the Anita Hill scandal. Another favorite saying was by slick Bill Clinton who said "I tried marijuana but didn't inhale" I used Bill metaphor right now today.

    Isn't it funny how nothing is mentioned until he is rising up in the election???? You would think that these people would have brought him up on charges right after it happened, not years later when he is running for president. Makes ya wonder, don't it? All bogus made-up lies. And yes, it gets old after the zillionth time. But we have a whole year ahead of us to have to listen to all the finger pointing and mug slinging.

    Why would anyone go through the hassle of public office the way good people are dragged through the mud? If you are at all "different" don't stand out or you will be accused of SOMETHING! Maybe poisoning Halloween candy, or trying to kidnap a kid if you ask for directions from the only person around who happins to be 12 years old, or heaven forbid don't put an arm around a sholder of a crying co-worker.

      You have to have a shady background to get the job. In this way you can be controlled.

    Listen to you repugs, blaming the dems so fast. How about the 1st two getting paid off when they complained the 1st time? How about the other runners trying to bump cain? Your people are a joke!

    More Liberal bias in the media, rediculous, no proof, not even any allegation. Herman Cain is obviously a major threat as far as the other candidates and liberals are concerned.

    National sales tax, federal reserve chairman (former), increase wars, supporter of the Patriot Act, etc... Nothing about this main in small government. Anyone that would vote for him over Ron Paul needs to have their head examined.
