(Newser) – Drip, drip, drip: A third woman is complaining about Herman Cain's behavior when he led the National Restaurant Association in the '90s, reports AP. Unlike the other two, this former employee did not file a complaint and get a settlement. But she said "Cain made sexually suggestive remarks or gestures" to her around the same time, and invited her to his apartment, according to the AP story.

Meanwhile, another former employee of the restaurant group tells Oklahoma radio station KTOK that Cain sexually harassed a female NRA employee at a restaurant and that "everybody was aware of it," reports Politico. "It was very uncomfortable," said Chris Wilson, who is now a GOP pollster (and Rick Perry supporter). He added that others present asked Cain to stop. No wonder Cain is getting testy with reporters.
