Another Woman Accuses Cain

Another woman has come forward to accuse Republican presidential contender Herman Cain of sexual harassment.

Speaking in a halting voice, a Chicago-area woman accused Republican presidential contender Herman Cain on Monday of making an unwanted sexual advance against her more than a decade ago, saying she wanted to provide "a face and a voice" to support other accusers who have so far remained anonymous.

"Come clean," Sharon Bialek challenged Cain, demanding he confess to any inappropriate behavior with her or other women.

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's appearance at a news conference marked a new and -- for Cain -- dangerous turn in a controversy that he had been trying to lay to rest.

She described an evening in mid-July 1997 when she had dinner in Washington, D.C., with Cain, whom she had contacted in hopes he could help her find a job. The two were in a car for what she thought was a ride to an office building.

"Instead of going into the offices he suddenly reached over and he put his hand on my leg, under my skirt toward my genitals," she said.

"He also pushed my head toward his crotch," she added.

She said she told Cain to stop, adding that he did.

Bialek is the fourth woman to allege inappropriate sexual behavior by Cain and the first to go public.

    Why bother with this. I am sure the women have moved on or tried, and it is only the lawyer that likes to stir up trouble. Its elections and all bad tactics are going to come out. Have some class! Any statute of limitations is probably long since expired anyway.

    It's because he is black! Those horrible racists! They would never say this about the President! They just can't stand a black man running for President! Sorry, I was pretending to be on the left.

    It's no more ridiculous than taking the election process seriously.

    Even if untrue, the media attention generated by this issue is keeping the agenda's of the only two true Conservative candidates in the GOP race from being heard by the public. Cain is no Conservative and as a former chairman of the Kansas City FED bank, who says the FED doesn't need to be audited, I don't trust him.

    Obama is scared that a REAL BLACK MAN will be moving in to the whitehouse and making him and his self entitled wife and kids move out. You don't realize you can't drag Cain down and when you hire Gloria Allred(lifelong democrat supporter)your case is a joke and holds no ground. This is a smear campaign by the Democrat/socialist party if you look close enough. You libs keep making Cain more popular and more people supporting him the more you throw at him, can't say the same for the failure and chief Obama.

    We had a President in office who basically molested one of his aides who was younger than his daughter. In the White House! And these 20 year old accusations are supposed to be a big deal? Come on!

    Typical media.Apparently the timing doesn't look a bit suspicious to these people.You lost your credibilty when you didn't care about the woman clinton abused!!Cain doesn't seem like the type of person to do anything malicious anyway. If there was any validity to any of this he never would have gotten this far.A republican black man is always forced to defend himself against the lies of the left!
