ATLANTA (AP) — Herman Cain’s campaign has issued a swift denial after a woman claimed he reached for her genitals in mid-1997.
The Republican presidential contender’s campaign said Monday that ‘all allegations of harassment against Mr. Cain are completely false.” The campaign says Cain “has never harassed anyone” and is calling the latest allegations by Sharon Bialek “bogus attacks.”
Bialek on Monday accused Cain of behaving inappropriately when she sought to be rehired at the National Restaurant Association, which Cain headed at the time. Bialek called on Cain to “come clean.”
She is the fourth woman to allege inappropriate sexual behavior by Cain and the first to go public.
