Ann Arbor native received sexual harassment settlement against GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain
A former Ann Arbor woman was identified publicly today as one of the women who received sexual harassment settlements against GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, according to a Detroit Free Press story.
Karen Kraushaar, 55, whose maiden name is Karen Grassmuck, was identified today as one of two women who received settlements when they worked with Cain at the National Restaurant Association more than a decade ago, the newspaper reported.
As Karen Grassmuck, she received a master’s degree in journalism in the mid-1980s from the University of Michigan. She also worked at the Ann Arbor News in the 1980s, the Free Press reported.
Kraushaar now serves as a spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Treasury and lives in Maryland, according to the newspaper.
