Cain accuser filed workplace complaint with different employer

Washington (CNN) - Karen Kraushaar, who came forward Tuesday as one of the women who filed a sexual harassment claim against Herman Cain when she worked at the National Restaurant Association, told CNN she lodged a workplace complaint against her next employer– the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

In an interview Tuesday night with CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger, Kraushaar called it a "minor incident" in which she complained she was not allowed to telecommute while recovering from a car accident, something a colleague was doing.

She characterized the incident as small and made it clear she had been in a dehabilitating car accident and needed some flexibility in work arrangements.

"I filed a little complaint," she told CNN. "I am not a troublemaker at all."

CNN first reported details of the complaint Tuesday.

Kraushaar, who has held several jobs as a nonpolitical federal employee, admitted that "I do speak out" against what she sees as workplace unfairness.

She raised the issue with CNN after having been questioned about it by The Associated Press.

Knowing her life story is now under a microscope, she admitted she might not have been a perfect employee but said she was a good and hard worker.

"They're looking under every rock trying to dig up dirt," she said. "There really isn't much."

    Sounds like this woman should be in prison. She doesn't pay her bills and is always filing suits to get money for nothing.
