Fifth Woman Questions Cain’s Behavior

Every time Herman Cain tries to end this story, it takes another unexpected turn. The Republican frontrunner will reportedly hold a press conference in Arizona to address claims made by Chicago single mom Sharon Bialek that she was harassed in 1997. In an interview with Piers Morgan, Bialek said that before Cain, who dismisses the claims as “bogus,” allegedly put his hand up her skirt and pushed her head toward his crotch, they drank wine together. While she does not plan on suing Cain, she wants to enable more women to come forward. And late Monday, the Washington Examiner reported that a fifth woman has come forward, saying that Cain wanted her to help him schedule a dinner with a female audience member after a speech nine years ago. When the woman refused to arrange the encounter, Cain reportedly asked her to dinner, but settled for dining in a group with a few other female colleagues—and allegedly ordered two $400 bottles of wine.
