Cain Plans Tues. News Conference on Harassment Allegations

Via AP:

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. “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. . .

Oh boy. I hope he realizes that he’s going to be asked, “did you have dinner with this woman?”, “did you upgrade her room?”, etc. He can’t dodge those. — Greg Pollowitz
