The National Restaurant Association confirmed on Thursday it had received a request from the lawyer of one of the women who had accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment in the mid-1990s, and would be making a decision on whether to release her from the terms of a confidentiality agreement on Friday.

The Republican presidential candidate campaign has been mired in controversy since Sunday, when Politico reported that two former employees of the National Restaurant Association had received financial settlements and left the organization after accusing Cain, the former association CEO, of sexual harassment.

The National Restaurant Association released the following statement:

 

"Our outside counsel was contacted by Mr. Bennett today and was asked to provide a response to a proposed statement by tomorrow afternoon. We are currently reviewing the document, and we plan to respond tomorrow," said Sue Hensley, senior vice president for public affairs communications.
