Cain Accuser May Come Forward to Tell Her Side of the Story

(By Billy Hallowell, The Blaze) - You could call it the story that never dies. GOP presidential contender Herman Cain has dominated political headlines, as has attempted to explain sexual harassment charges that were waged against him 12 years ago. Now, his accuser — who remains anonymous — is claiming, through her lawyer, that the 2012 presidential hopeful has been lying to the American public.

Cain, who has already been scrutinized for seemingly changing his story regarding a settlement that was paid out to the woman following the purported incident, hasn’t yet responded to these latest allegations. This mystery woman is particularly frustrated over his insinuations that she lied about the allegations.

“She’s been very upset about this since the story broke last Sunday, because Mr. Cain has been giving the impression she came out and made false allegations,” her lawyer, Joel Bennett, said on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.”
