Hours after being publicly identified as one of several women to accuse Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment, civil servant Karen Kraushaar told ABC News that Cain could be described as a "monster."
Kraushaar said overnight she had attempted to dodge the media spotlight because she feared retaliation from Cain supporters. Her identity was revealed Tuesday and she has since hired a security team to guard her home outside Washington, D.C.
Last week, Kraushaar's attorney Joel Bennett said his client had reported a "series" of incidents involving Cain when she worked in the communications department of the National Restaurant Association and where Cain served as CEO in the late 1990s. She now works as a spokesperson for the Inspector General at the Internal Revenue Service. Bennett said his client had "preferred" not to be identified but did not want to try to "control the media."
