New Herman Cain accuser to come forward with Gloria Allred
Another woman alleging that Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain sexually harassed her in the 1990's will come forward today, according to her attorney Gloria Allred.
According to a press release from Allred, the woman charges that Cain harassed her during his tenure as chief executive of the National Restaurant Association (NRA), when she sought help from him with an employment issue.
The woman plans to make her allegations public at a press conference with Allred on Friday at 1:30 p.m. in New York City.
Allred's client would be the first of Cain's accusers to speak publicly about the charges. Already, three former NRA employees have reported that they were harassed by Cain at the restaurant lobbying group; two of the women filed formal complaints and reached settlement agreements with the NRA.
Allred is known for taking on high-profile clients. Last year, she represented Nicky Diaz Santillan, the housekeeper that California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman fired because of her immigration status.
