Herman Cain, Just Quit Right Now.

Well, I'll say this for Mr. Cain, he clearly has his "type".
One of the five women to have accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment when she worked for him at the National Restaurant Association has been named and pictured, making her the second of Cain's identified 'victims'.

Karen Kraushaar, a 55-year-old federal employee and registered Republican, was one of the two women who, in the late 1990s, settled claims of sexual harassment against the 2012 GOP presidential candidate.

Mrs Kraushaar's lawyer released a statement from his client last week after it was first reported on Politico, starting the slew of allegations against Cain. She is unwilling to add anything more except to confirm it is her.

Mrs Kraushaar and Sharon Bialek are now the only two named accusers. A day after Ms Bialek came forward, her reputation is already being called into question as parts of her 'gold-digging' murky past start to emerge.

Quite a different picture of Mrs Kraushaar - who currently serves as a communications director at the Inspector General’s Office of the Treasury Department - has emerged. According to NPR, the 55-year-old lives with her lawyer husband of 26-years Kevin in Maryland.

Before her long career in professional government jobs, Mrs Kraushaar, an accomplished equestrian, was a news reporter and editor. She is also said to have written a true story children's book with her mother-in-law.

Her brief employment with the restaurant association was her first, and only, experience working with a private lobbying organization.

She has also worked as a public affairs specialist at the Department of Homeland Security, the Justice Department, and the Consumer Product Safety Commission, according to NPR.

Her friends and family told The Daily that she was 'very reliable' and 'not the type of person who would make things up'.

She was freed last week from a confidentiality agreement signed when she settled her harassment case against Cain and left the association with a cash payment in June 1999.
Herman, for the love of Conservative Jesus, please just quit while you're ahead.[1]

What Would Reagan Do?!?[2]

Question: How long before Cain's list of alleged accusers becomes Tiger Woods-ish? Should dude quit while he's ahead?!?

[1] If this blog seems like it's been "all Cain, all the time" lately, sorry. But this is a developing news story that involves two of this blog's main topics: politics and race. If anyone's offended, sorry. It is what it is, and I do what I do.

[2] Answer: Reagan would probably have been a lost less sloppy with his.
