Cain Says Perry Camp Behind Sex Harassment Leak - Forbes Cain Says Perry Camp Behind Sex Harassment Leak Was the recent attack on Herman Cains presidential campaign a professional hit job? Absolutely, says Herman Cain. And he says he knows just where to look for the guy who did it: At 815 Slaters Lane in Alexandria, Virginia, a low-slung former warehouse in the shadow of a coal plant. There, beside rusting rail lines, is the home of OnMessage Inc., a Republican-leaning consulting firm recently hired to bolster Texas Gov. Rick Perrys presidential campaign. One of the firms partners, Curt Anderson, worked on Cains losing 2004 U.S. Senate campaign. Cain thinks hes the hired political gun who leaked details to Politico, a Washington trade publication, of alleged sexually suggestive behavior Cain is said to have exhibited towards two women while he ran the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s. That story set off a media frenzy which has quickly put Cains campaign on the defense. In the summer of 2003, Cain recalls briefing Andersonhis general campaign consultant at the timethat sexual harassment claims were brought against him while he was chairman of the National Restaurant Association from 1996 to 1999. I told my wife about this in 1999 and Ive got nothing to hide, Cain told me Wednesday. When I sat down with my general campaign consultant Curt Anderson in a private room in our campaign offices in 2003 we discussed opposition research on me. It was a typical campaign conversation. I told him that there was only one case, one set of charges, one woman while I was at the National Restaurant Association. Those charges were baseless, but I thought he needed to know about them. I dont recall anyone else being in the room when I told him.
