Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is vowing to "set the record straight" at a news conference one day after a fourth woman and the first to reveal her identity accused him of inappropriate sexual behavior a decade ago, the latest in a string of claims that have rocked his presidential campaign.
"There is not an ounce of truth to all these allegations" and the graphic account from Sharon Bialek is "totally fabricated," the Georgia businessman told late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel.
Cain planned to address the latest furor Tuesday afternoon in Phoenix as he seeks to stem the fallout of a controversy stretching into its second week.
Cain blames harassment claims on "long career" Do Bialek's charges amount to sexual harassment? Is Herman Cain's political goose cooked?
"I'm going to talk about it," Cain said, adding "we are taking this head on" a reversal from just days ago when told reporters he was done answering questions about the matter.
That was before Bialek went on national television Monday and provided a name and a face to what had, until then, been at least three anonymous sexual harassment allegations against Cain. Bialek's accusations that Cain groped her in a car after she asked for his help finding a job spun his unorthodox campaign into an uncertain new territory.

Speaking of having your head examined...you need to have it checked out, if you haven't taken time to watch the latest episode of the Les Dowrey Show!
—a reversal from just days ago when told reporters he was done answering questions about the matter.—
What reversal?! This matter did not exist then. This is a new matter, you morons.
I don’t think it’s a high tech lynching having to do with race, but typical filthy cut-throat politics in which the Dems excel. They are going to do this to whomever they feel is gaining momentum. It’s going to be a bumpy ride so conservatives better stay strong.
I hope and pray Herman has all his dates, times, receipts, messages and conversations with this female predator down pat.
No room for back tracking - just the facts and damn the torpedoes.
He may have to declare her a mental case who needs help. She has accused him of needing it.
lets hope he does more than say it is not true . More than a trust me denial is needed here . The i refuse to discuss these allegations any further and i must get back to the things that really matter will sound , Clinton like..
I agree. If he acknowledges her request to discuss the “job help”; he has to confirm the parts of her story that make sense and deny the sexual stuff drama she has obviously been inserting into her “recollections”.
If she were a respectable female executive (as she portrays herself) there would have never been any ‘misunderstanding’. She would have met him at his office with a resume - not over dinner and drinks.
He can easily claim she came on to him and he was embarrassed so he dropped her off at the hotel. Period!!
just heard on boortz that she was fired from the nra for a false sexual harassment suit if true her goose is cooked and cain should come out smelling like a rose
How and WHY would you have receipts, etc from 15 years ago when you were not running for political office, to answer accusations that are made with absolutely no evidence other than what one person says.
I can say that I saw you fondling little kids on the corner of 1st and Main 15 years ago, go public and hold a press conference. Now, where is all of your documentation to prove me wrong?
You are right - I’m just so angry - not typing straight;(
I was trying to think of the details he must be certain about. If his practice was to make himself available to job seekers - he might have had guidelines in place. Perhaps upper level job applicants were not interviewed on site - so as to prevent rumors. If that’s the case - this meeting was not unusual.
IIRC Associations have different rules than corporations.
Any large purchases by the woman recently? Anything to indicate a large infusion of cash?
I’m convinced she is getting paid for this by the One’s campaign.
I worked as a divisional department head for a communications company and retired from my job two years ago. In a box in my bedroom closet are the fully notated daily planners from each of the 15 years I worked for the company, along with printed copies of my monthly expense reports. If Herman Cain had the foresight to do this he could show receipts categorically denying each and all of his accusers.
And by trotting out a blond white woman, it gives a subliminal message that he’s a black man who is a predator of white women. Playing up to stereotype.
Probably true and hard to track - she will be given a job in some Soros enterprise and paid a ‘sign on’ bonus.
It seems that Herman Cain’s most recent positions have placed him in an environment inhabited by more women than men. Such is the state of women’s equality and upward mobility.
That’s a vulnerable place to be for a friendly extrovert.
How much more interesting is that she apparently was on CNN, ABC, CBS and NBC - and not on FOX!
He could start by attacking her credibility. If she was harassed a decade ago, why is she just spouting off about it now? Seems to me she may be nothing but a gold digger looking to get in on some publicity and maybe a cash payout.
If I were Herman I'd say that she was the one that offered him a lewinsky if he would get her a job, and he told her that he was happily married and told her to go away.
She tried to plunge her head into his lap, but he fought her off.
Say that if she doesn't apologize by 6:00 PM he is going to bring charges of slander against her, and if she doesn't, then bring them.
There is a nugget of truth in there someplace.
Why doesn’t he finally say “enough ... you’ve had your fun, now either prove it or we’re talking lawsuit”. There are more hookers than plausible denials ... prove it or lets move on. Each hooker is a “new assault” ... but how many “new denials can there be?” Time to call them.
