Through her lawyer, one of Herman Cain’s accusers, Ms A, says she wants to tell her side of the story. But she is forbidden to do so by a confidentiality agreement she signed with the Restaurant Association at the time of the settlement. She received a settlement of $35,000 contingent on the fact that she mantain her silence. Her lawyer want the Restaurant Association to lift the agreement so that Ms A can speak openly.
Ms A’s basic argument is that Cain is going around the country telling lies about her situation and that it is only just that she be able to respond.
Should the Restaurant Association lift the confidentiality agreement so Ms A can speak?
If she speaks openly should Ms A be forced to return her $35,000 settlement?
Should Cain’s accuser be allowed to speak?
What do you think?
