Fourth woman accuses Cain of sexual misconduct

A fourth woman has come forward accusing Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain of sexual misconduct.

According to Sharon Bialek, she met with Mr Cain on several occasions including political rallies and fundraisers.

Speaking at a press conference, Ms Bialek said when her job at The United Nations Restaurant Association was terminated she decided to ask Mr Cain, the organisation's director at that time, for help in finding work.

According to Ms Bialek they met in Washington DC, where Mr Cain took Ms Bialek to dinner and promised afterwards to show her the offices of The Restaurant Association. On the way to the offices Ms Bialek alleges Mr Cain sexually assaulted her.

Following the press conference, the Cain campaign immediately issued a denial stating: "All allegations of harassment against Mr Cain are false."
