Gloria Allred to represent new Cain accuser

UPDATE: Sharon Bialek accuses Herman Cain of sexual harassment… DEVELOPING…

A fourth woman alleging that GOP presidential front-runner Herman Cain sexually harassed her will be detailing the experience during a press conference Monday afternoon in New York City, RadarOnline is reporting. She is represented by famed attorney Gloria Allred.

Allred’s client will be the first to speak publicly about Cain, who has been the subject of intense media scrutiny after three other women anonymously alleged that he sexually harassed them in the 1990s while CEO of the National Restaurant Association, as first reported by Politico.

This fourth woman says she was harassed, according to RadarOnline, when she approached Cain for help with an employment issue.

Politico initially reported that two other anonymous women had received cash settlements from the association, and signed agreements barring them from speaking publicly about the episode. On Friday the restaurant association released one of the women from her non-disclosure restriction, but she declined to discuss the matter publicly.

The Associated Press has reported that a third woman considered filing a complaint against Cain when they worked together in the late 1990s.
