ATLANTA (AP) -- Herman Cain's presidential campaign is assailing the woman who accused him of groping her while she sought a job, presumably in an effort to undercut her credibility.

The Republican businessman's advisers issued a news release Tuesday asking -- quote -- "Who is Sharon Bialek?" That document then outlines what it calls her "long and troubled history, from the courts to personal finances."

It lists civil lawsuits that allegedly relate to her in the Cook County Court system in Illinois. It also quotes news reports mentioning her involvement in a paternity case and a bankruptcy filing.

The document contrasts that record with what it says is Cain's "four decades spent climbing the corporate ladder rising to the level of CEO at multiple successful business enterprises."

    Sadly, Cain will dwindle away as it's clear he conveniently forgot many things in 2011 that was fresh on his mind in 2003 during his Senate run. If the man can forget something so critical in a few years, what will the pressure of the Presidency do to him?

    Cain didn't have a chance even before this scandal regardless if he did it or not. I am not an Obama supporter but he would eat Cain for lunch in a debate.

    Wish Mr. Cain had handled this better from the start. Flip-flopping, angry rude responses, and "I don't recall" is really doing him in. He has become his own worst enemy, which is quite sad. I thought he had a chance. Oh, well, Back to Romney...

    Not a great response considering you're running for president. Just say no Herm. If you didn't do it you didn't do it. This make you look more like a bully. Elections shouldn't be about making your opponent look bad, it should be about making yourself look good. It's not the WWE.

    This women is a fraud and there is more evidence against her that your not even mentioning. As like why did she not bring this up back when Cain made a senate run. Also the fact that at that tea party rally she insisted and forced herself at Cain according to witnesses. Also the fact that her entire life since Alred became her lawyer has been scrubbed except for a few damaging things for her that people got screenshots off before she scrubbed it from the net.

      So you aren't concerned about the 480M dollar payout to the other two gals by the NRA?
