Cain Accuser Works for Current Administration?

Who'd have thunk it?, as the saying goes.

Is it a coincidence that one of the Herman Cain sexual harrassment accusers shares commonality with the Obama Administration?

Kraushaar, alledging misconduct by Hermain Cain, works for the Obama administration.
Karen Kraushaar, who hails from Chicago, released an anonymous statement through her lawyer, Joel Bennett, suggesting that Cain was responsible for a "series of inappropriate behaviours and unwanted advances" in 1990s while he was head of the National Restaurant Association.

Kraushaar, 55, works as the Communications Director at the Inspector General's Office of the Treasury Department.

Sharon Bialek was the first woman who came forward this week about the Cain allegation, saying she did so in part to "put a face to the name" of the person alledging the misconduct of the 67 year-old presidential hopeful.

Sharon Bialek, with power attorney, Gloria Allred.

Cain, in a press conference in Arizona yesterday, said he could not recall the incident Bialek referred to, nor Bialek at all.

“I reject all the accusations. I don’t remember that,” Cain said on Bialek claiming that he put his hand up her dress and tried to fondle her.  

Additionally, Cain said, “I don’t remember knowing her.”

Is it a coincidence that these woman are now coming forward as Cain's status has propelled to the top GOP contender for the 2012 presidential election?

Could there be behind-the-scenes meandering going on in the president's camp to try to discredit Herman Cain?

Said President Obama in an appearance on the Jay Leno Show earlier this month, I’m going to wait until everybody is voted off the island. Once they narrow it down to one or two, I’ll start paying attention.”

One can bet President Obama is "paying attention" now.
