(Newser) – It looks like Herman Cain might be able to end the week without any fresh sexual harassment headlines. One of his accusers, former National Restaurant Association employee Karen Kraushaar, hoped to hold a joint press conference with the other three accusers, but two of them haven't responded to her invitation, the New York Daily News reports. Kraushaar's lawyer says his client won't tell her full story until the other women come forward to present "a body of evidence" of the candidate's alleged misbehavior.

He notes they have made "diligent efforts" to track down the two anonymous women, without success, reports the New York Times. Despite what the Cain campaign is saying, the lawyer says, Kraushaar's complaint "was sexual harassment, not something innocent or something that could have been misconstrued." Gloria Allred, Sharon Bialek's lawyer, has said her client is willing to appear at a conference with Kraushaar.
