Woman Who Accused Cain Won’t Go Public, Lawyer Says
Joel P. Bennett, the lawyer for one of the women who has made accusations of sexual harassment against Herman Cain, the Republican presidential candidate, said that his client had decided not to go public or to make a public statement herself in an effort to shield herself from the media frenzy swirling around the situation.
