The Herman Cain sexual harassment saga continues as a third woman has come forward to accuse the Republican presidential candidate of sexually harassing her while he was at the helm of the National Restaurant Association, according to an Associated Press report released late Wednesday afternoon.

The third woman, who asked The AP not to disclose her name, said she considered filing a complaint about him over his aggressive, unwanted behavior toward her while she was his employee in the 1990s.

The former employee went so far as to tell The AP that Cain invited her to visit his corporate apartment, and described sexually suggestive remarks and gestures that he allegedly made at around the same time two other female former employees settled harassment complaints against him.

The New York Times reported earlier this week that one of those complaints was settled for $35,000 - equivalent to one year of pay for the employee who received it.

The Cain campaign did not immediately return a request for comment by the International Business Times Wednesday afternoon.
