Cain says he was 'falsely accused' of harassment

Just think, this is the GOP’s front runner in the primaries for the presidency…

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain admitted Monday to being accused of sexual harassment while at the helm of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, but denied ever engaging in such activity.

Cain, responding during an appearance on Fox News to a story that said he had settled two sexual harassment claims against him while at the NRA, said that an investigation into those allegations proved them to be "totally baseless."

"I have never sexual harassed anyone, and yes, I was falsely accused while I was at the National Restaurant Association," Cain said in the interview, his first comments on the Politico story from Sunday. "I say falsely because it turned out, after the investigation, to be baseless."

Cain sought to forcefully dispute the story, which said Cain had been accused of sexually suggestive behavior toward at least two female employees during his time as head of the restaurant lobby.

Cain said he had never personally settled any sexual harassment suit, and that if the NRA had settled any claims, it had done so without his knowledge.”
