As the women who have accused Herman Cain of unwanted sexual advances come forward (or are outed), one of them has been identified as Karen Kraushaar, a communications director for the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) within the US Department of Treasury. Kraushaar appears to have a long career in the PR industry, including a communications post while working at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) where she alleges she was the recipient of sexual harassment by Cain. Prior to PR, she was a journalist, according to reports.

After leaving the NRA in 1999 with a settlement, she was hired into a communications role with the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) by Maria Cardona, then communications director for the federal agency. Cardona, now a principal with public affairs firm Dewey Square Group, has spoken out on the issue, saying Kraushaar recently told her that Cain was a "monster."

Kraushaar is suggesting that Cain's accusers hold a joint press conference to confront him, saying "there is safety in numbers."

Cain and his campaign for president have denied all charges, calling them "baseless."
