Gloria Allred‘s new client leveled very serious accusations against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain on Monday, claiming that he put his hand under her skirt and reached for her “genitals,” and pulled her head “towards his crotch.”
Sharon Bialek spoke at a news conference in New York City and said that she asked Cain to help her find a new job when she was terminated from the Education Foundation at the National Restaurant Association in 1997. She said that she went to Washington, D.C. and Cain arranged for her to stay in a hotel and took her to dinner.
She said when they were in the car, Cain pulled over and “suddenly reached over and put his hand on my leg, under my skirt and reached for my genitals.”
Bialek also said “He also grabbed my head and pulled it towards his crotch.” She said that she asked Cain to stop and he did but when she questioned his actions Cain told her “You want a job, right?”
Allred had a sharp explanation for what Cain allegedly did to her client. “Mr. Cain decided to provide her with his idea of a stimulus package.”
Bialek said she is not going to file a lawsuit and is not seeking financial compensation.
“I want you to come clean Mr. Cain,” she said at the press conference.
During Cain’s employment at the National Restaurant Association, which was from 1996-1999, two women accused him of sexual harassment, and both received financial settlements, according to Politico, which first broke the story.
The women aren’t able to discuss the matter publicly because of terms of the agreement.
Herman Cain released a statement after the press conference calling the accusation “bogus attacks” and saying “All allegations of harassment against Mr. Cain are false.”
