A fifth woman has come forward to accuse Herman Cain of sexual misconduct.
The Washington Examiner says “a former employee of the United States Agency for International Development says Herman Cain asked her to help arrange a dinner date for him with a female audience member following a speech he delivered nine years ago.
“Donna Donella, 40, of Arlington said the USAID paid Cain to deliver a speech to businessmen and women in Egypt in 2002, during which an Egyptian businesswoman in her 30s asked Cain a question.
“‘And after the seminar was over,’ Donella told the Washington Examiner, ‘Cain came over to me and a colleague and said, ‘Could you put me in touch with that lovely young lady who asked the question, so I can give her a more thorough answer over dinner?'”
According to the Examiner, the woman declined and Cain then asked her to go to dinner. Two co-workers decided to go with them, sensing her distress. During the dinner Cain allegedly made some odd comments and ordered two $400 bottles of wine. They said he left and stuck them with the bill.
Even the most naive would have to admit that there is a troubling pattern here.
