Karen Kraushaar, a 55-year-old former journalist was outed Tuesday as one of three women who filed sexual harassment complaints against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain. And according to the New York Pos, Kraushaar also works for the Obama administration.
Since 2010, Kraushaar has served as a communications director at the Inspector General’s Office of the Treasury Department.
Kraushaar has not returned phone calls left by The Daily thus far.
The Post adds:
“She wouldn’t be the type to make false allegations,” brother-in-law Ned Kraushaar, a Georgia software consultant, told The Daily. “This happened [more than] 10 years ago. It’s not like she wanted to try and hurt the Republican Party.”
Until now, three of the four women who had lodged complaints against Cain had remained anonymous.
She is “an extraordinarily good person,” said Jennie Williams, a friend and Atlanta equestrian. “She is very reliable and has lots of integrity. I don’t know what happened. I don’t want to know. Enough is enough. She is quality.”
“Quality” or not, one has to question the source of such a conveniently timed accusation when that source works for the Democratic incumbent.
