Herman Cain Will Appear on Jimmy Kimmel Later Today
Los Angeles – Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is scheduled to appear on the ABC late-night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live” today, only hours after a fourth woman is expected to accuse him of committing acts of sexual harassment when he was president of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.
The woman will make her allegations at a New York City news conference at the Friars Club, where she will be joined by her lawyer, Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred.
Unlike the three women involved in the previous allegations, the woman scheduled to appear at today’s news conference in Manhattan will give her name and speak out publicly about details of what she says occurred between her and Cain when she sought his help with an employment issue, Allred said.
There was no immediate response to an email and telephone message left with the Cain campaign seeking a response to the latest allegation.
Cain has repeatedly denied the allegations, first reported Oct. 30 by the political news website Politico. His campaign has called them “thinly sourced” and “unsubstantiated personal attacks.”
Cain campaign’s chief of staff, Mark Block, told Fox News Channel on Friday that the campaign will no longer answer questions related to the accusations that Cain sexually harassed female employees when he was chief executive officer of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.
