Washington Post: One Cain accuser seeks to go public.

Her attorney: “It is just frustrating that Herman Cain is going around bad-mouthing the two complainants, and my client is blocked by a confidentiality agreement. The National Restaurant Association ought to release them and allow them to respond.”

The lawyer, Joel Bennett, tells CNN’s Anderson Cooper it’s his “understanding” the allegations were leaked to Politico by a former National Restaurant Association board member. Adds his client is upset the Georgian referred to the complaint as “baseless.”

“Mr. Cain has been giving the impression she came out and made false allegations. That’s certainly not true…I am persuaded my client made a good faith, honest complaint of sexual complaint. I was not there. I didn’t see what happened between these two people but I know her very well and I’m sure she would not make a false complaint.”

The women's testimony and the settlement agreements are on a trajectory now to go public. The Post story suggests at least one of the accusers will tell a story that will paint a much different picture than what Cain has put forward. The journalist digging is intense now.
