Cain 'dealing with' Sharon Bialek groping allegation

Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain has said he is "dealing with" an allegation of sexual assault made by a woman who sought his help looking for work in the 1990s.

Sharon Bialek, a former employee of a restaurant lobby group, said Mr Cain had reached up her skirt and pulled her head towards his crotch.

She is being represented by lawyer Gloria Allred, who has represented several high-profile clients, including an alleged mistress of golfer Tiger Woods.

Herman Cain was speaking on US chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live.
