BREAKING NEWS: Fifth Cain accuser comes forward

The Washington Examiner reports that a fifth woman has come forward complaining of “questionable” behavior by Herman Cain. 

A former employee of the United States Agency for International Development says Republican presidential candidate 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?"

Donella, who no longer works for USAID, said they were suspicious of Cain's motives and declined to set up the date. Cain responded, "Then you and I can have dinner." That's when two female colleagues intervened and suggested they all go to dinner together, Donella said.

Cain “aggressively” attacks fourth accuser Sharon Bialek

In a related development, CBS News is reporting that the Cain campaign has distributed an email to supporters “aggressive” attacking the first woman to publicly accuse him of sexual misconduct, Sharon Bialek.  CBS says: “The email lists six specific civil lawsuits in which Bialek was a defendant, and it cites a news report saying that Bialek was sued over a paternity matter in 1999. The email also says that public records show Bialek has filed for bankruptcy twice and worked for nine employers over the last 17 years.”
