Source Disputes Claim that Herman Cain Sexually Harassed Young Staffer at Virginia Dinner

Political consultant Chris Wilson told KTOK yesterday that he witnessed Herman Cain harass a staffer. Wilson said if the woman was ever allowed to speak it would be the end of the Cain Campaign.


Today another witness at the dinner disputed the claims.
A separate source disputed the allegations made yesterday by Chris Wilson that Herman Cain sexually harassed a young staffer at a dinner with the restaurant association.
CBS News reported:

A Republican source who was at the dinner in which pollster Chris Wilson says Herman Cain sexually harassed a young staffer is contradicting the account, telling CBS News he never saw Cain sexually harass anyone that night, although he does remember Cain drinking.

“I did not see a lech,” the source said.

Wilson, who was doing polling for the Restaurant Association during Cain’s tenure, told an Oklahoma radio station yesterday: “This all occurred at a restaurant in Crystal City [Virginia] and everybody was very aware of it. And so it is, it was only a matter of time because so many people were aware of what took place, so many people were aware of her situation, the fact that she left after this, that it was, it was a-everybody knew with the campaign that this would eventually come up.

But the source said he “didn’t remember (Cain) doing anything” at the dinner, which he said was at a Ruth Chris’ steakhouse in Crystal City, Virginia. The source said Cain “may have been a little drunk,” but he didn’t see anything inappropriate–and added that he never heard anyone discuss anything inappropriate that may have occurred.
