Sharon Bialek, new Herman Cain accuser, comes forward

-

While Herman Cain has been facing sexual harassment allegations for the past week, none of his accusers have spoken publicly. Until now.

Represented by celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, Sharon Bialek, a registered Republican from Chicago who worked at the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, accused Mr. Cain of putting his hand “under my skirt and [reaching] for my genitals. He also grabbed my head and brought it towards his crotch.”

After she protested, Mr. Cain allegedly told her, “You want a job, right?”

While this represents a charge not just of sexual harassment, but arguably sexual assault, Allred said her client is not filing “a lawsuit or claim.”
