Two major newspapers have released stories on the women accusing Herman Cain of sexual harassment that could be further damaging to the GOP presidential candidate.

According to The New York Times, one of the two women received a full years’ severance fee of $35,000 from the National Restaurant Association after being uncomfortable with Cain’s action while he was the association’s executive chief.

The other woman, upset over Cain’s comments since the scandal broke Sunday, is now seeking to break a non-disclosure agreement she signed while leaving the restaurant association, according to The Washington Post.

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

Bennett added: “There was more than one incident that my client received sexual harassment.”

The reports from The Times and The Post follow Cain’s numerous, contrasting versions of what occurred with these women.
