Cain to Fire Back at Accuser

Herman Cain is taking the latest round of sexual harassment allegations head on: he will respond at a news conference Tuesday to the accusation of Sharon Bialek, a woman who says he offered her a job at the National Restaurant Association in exchange for sexual favors in the 1990s. In an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, Cain said he plans to “set the record straight” and called the accusations “totally fabricated.” He also said his wife, Gloria, is standing by him: “My own wife said that I wouldn't do anything as silly as what that lady was talking about, because she does know me.”
