Cain's Wife: Harrassment Claims Don't Ring True

Herman Cain


Herman Cain's wife says the claims of sex harassment against the GOP presidential candidate don't ring true because he "totally respects women."

Gloria Cain told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren: "I'm thinking he would have to have a split personality to do the things that were said."

In an interview to be aired Monday during the show "On the Record," Gloria Cain said she can't believe the claims he harassed women when he led the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.

"You hear the graphic allegations and we know that would have been something that's totally disrespectful of her as a woman," she said. "And I know the type of person he is. He totally respects women."

Excerpts of the interview were released Sunday.

Four women have now accused Herman Cain of sexually harassing them when he led the National Restaurant Association. He has denied wrongdoing and has been trying to move forward in his presidential campaign.

Despite the allegations, Cain has maintained his front-runner status, with many polls showing a close race between himself, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Cain's wife of 43 years is often described as "gentle" and "the nicest woman you'll ever meet."

The two were married in 1968, have two adult children — a daughter, Melanie, and a son, Vincent — and grandchildren.
