Cain Accuser was Involved in Return of Elian Gonzalez to Cuba, & Now Works For Obama Administration

At the center of the allegations against Herman Cain is current Obama administration employee, who was also the spokeswoman for Janet Reno during the Elian Gonzales fiasco during the Clinton Presidency.  For those unfamiliar with Elian Gonzalez, he was a young boy who survived an ill-fated trip to America in November 1999. Twelve Cubans set out for Cuba in an unstable boat, but only Elian and one other person would make it to America alive. Elizabeth Gonzales was attempting to do something that has been done more than a thousand times since Castro's revolution that brought communism to the tiny island. Elian's mother gave her life so that her son could be raised in freedom, but it was never to be.
After floating in the ocean on a tube for days, Elian and one other survivor was eventually rescued by two fishermen who turned him over to the U.S. Coast Guard. There is a law that states that if a Cuban refugee makes it to American soil, they must be allowed to stay. At first the U.S. authorities gave Elian over to his paternal great uncle, but his father in Cuba claimed not to have known he was taken taken from Cuba and demanded his return.  Since young Elian never made it to land, the stage was set for a tragic ending where no one would win, especially young Elian.

In the ensuing Months, Elian's relatives would fight for his freedom from a government his mother thought he would be safe under. After numerous legalities, (then) Attorney General Janet Reno made a decision to remove him from the home in Florida. In the pre-dawn hours of April 22, 2000 U.S. officials, including SWAT raided the home and took Elian Gonzalez away and he was subsequently returned to his father in Cuba, much to the chagrin, disappointment, and outrage by the Miami Cuban exile community.
Well, now we learn that the woman who was the official government spokesperson for the Reno Justice Dept in the Elian case was non other than Karen Kraushaar, who is currently a communications director for the Obama administrations Inspector General's Office at the Treasury Department. This is a position she has held since since last year.

We also now know that Sharon Bialek, (photo below) the woman brought forward by Gloria Allred, is a gold digger from Chicago which is also Obama and his henchman's backyard. So can anyone convince me that the Obama administration is not behind this attack on Herman Cain?

Below is an article from about the woman behind the scenes that started the current attack on Herman Cain. An attack that was most likely started from the oval office by the president the United States himself. Obama has the most to lose if Herman Cain wins the Republican presidential primary. The more we learn about the women behind the allegations against Cain, the more we learn that even if we can not convince all Americans that Obama is the culprit, we can see his fingerprints all over the proof. I have said it time and time again. The left has cried wolf so many times that the charge of racism and sexism means nothing.

About Herman Cain Accuser by the Daily Mail

Herman Cain claims sexual harassment accusations threatening to derail his presidential campaign are a smear campaign. But friends and family of one accuser say she is a principled and dedicated professional who was only trying to right a wrong no woman should suffer in the workplace.

Karen Kraushaar, a 55-year-old former journalist and seasoned government spokeswoman who served on the front lines of the Elian Gonzalez custody battle, is a competitive equestrian and lover of golden retrievers. She has been married for more than two decades.

Karen Kraushaar has been a competitive equestrian and longtime government worker.
"She wouldn't be the type to make false allegations," brother-in-law Ned Kraushaar, a Georgia software consultant, told The Daily. "This happened [more than] 10 years ago. It's not like she wanted to try and hurt the Republican Party."

Karen Kraushaar currently serves as a communications director at the Inspector General's Office of the Treasury Department, a position she has held since last year. She did not return phone messages left by The Daily.

She is "an extraordinarily good person," said Jennie Williams, a friend and Atlanta equestrian. "She is very reliable and has lots of integrity. I don't know what happened. I don't want to know. Enough is enough. She is quality."

A former colleague at the National Restaurant Association who asked not to be identified said of Kraushaar, "The woman is a consummate professional. What I saw was an extremely talented woman. A professional, knowledgeable woman and nothing more."

On Oct. 30, Politico first reported that two women had accused Cain, who leads many polls in the Republican presidential race, of inappropriate comments and sexual advances in the 1990s. A fourth woman, Sharon Bialek, came forward yesterday, flanked by high-profile attorney Gloria Allred.

Kraushaar, who lives in Maryland, has no desire to speak publicly about the complaint she filed against Cain, letting her superiors know "about a series of inappropriate behaviors and unwanted advances from the CEO," her attorney, Joel Bennett, said recently.

"Those complaints were resolved in an agreement with her acceptance of a monetary settlement," Bennett said. "She and her husband see no value in revisiting this matter now, nor in discussing this matter further, publicly or privately. In fact, it would be extremely painful to do so."

Ned Kraushaar said his sister-in-law never discussed the incident that allegedly occurred when she was a spokeswoman for the National Restaurant Association from 1998 to 1999, a Washington lobbying firm then headed by Cain. "She kept it all quiet because of the confidentiality agreement," he said by phone from his Atlanta home.

A lifelong horsewoman, Kraushaar was diagnosed at 21 with scoliosis, or curvature of the spine.

After multiple surgeries and physical therapists, she was back in the saddle, now favoring the Paso Fino breed of horses because they have a gentler gait, her family said.

She follows a rigorous exercise plan involving weight training and cardiovascular conditioning, according to an equestrian website.

"Strange as it may seem, scoliosis makes sitting for hours in a chair a lot harder than walking or riding my horse," she told the site.

After the settlement, Kraushaar served as a spokeswoman for the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service, the predecessor of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. She was a chief spokeswoman during one of the agency's most controversial immigration cases -- the custody battle over Elian Gonzalez, a Cuban boy rescued at sea who was then held by Florida relatives against the will of his father in Cuba. The boy was eventually returned to his dad.

In 2003, Kraushaar was a communications specialist for the Tax Advocate Service, an independent arm within the Internal Revenue Service that helps impoverished taxpayers.

Bialek is the only one of the four accusers to speak publicly. Cain's campaign instantly issued a blanket denial yesterday, saying, "All allegations of harassment against Mr. Cain are false."

"There was nothing to these baseless claims," he said on Sunday, recalling the first report of the charges. "I knew that."
