Herman Cain Accuser

He Tried to Grab My Genitals

11/7/2011 2:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sharon Bialek
Herman Cain seduced a former National Restaurant Association employee after a dinner meeting in Washington D.C. ... reaching for her genitals ... and forcing her head near his crotch with the promise of hooking her up with a job ... so says the 4th accuser.

Sharon Bialek just spoke at a news conference thrown by Gloria Allred ... saying she reached out to Herman when she was terminated from the Education Foundation at the National Restaurant Association in July 1997 ... and asked him for help.

Bialek says Cain told her to come to D.C. so they could talk. She did -- and to her surprise, Cain hooked her up with a HUGE hotel room ... took her to dinner ... and afterward, promised to show her the NRA headquarters.

Once they were in the car, Bialek says Herman pulled over -- then, "He suddenly reached over and put his hand on my leg, under my skirt and reached for my genitals."

Bialek says Cain also tried to pull her head towards his crotch.

When Bialek questioned his actions -- she claims Cain replied, "You want a job, right?"

Bialek says she asked Cain to stop -- and he did.

Allred says Bialek -- who's a registered Republican -- could have sold her story for a ton of cash -- but she didn't want to damage her credibility.

update_bar
2:38 AM PST -- Cain's camp has released a statement ... calling the allegations "bogus."

The statement continues, "All allegations of harassment against Mr. Cain are completely false. Mr. Cain has never harassed anyone."

"Fortunately the American people will not allow Mr. Cain’s bold “9-9-9 Plan”, clear foreign policy vision and plans for energy independence to be overshadowed by these bogus attacks.

Picking Gloria Allred gives a person NO credibility in my book!! Allred must have been losing sleep that she was not in the middle of all this until she finally hooked one' (an accuser). If this harassment happened to the lady, it stinks . . . but getting Allred and getting yourself fixed up for the cameras (your 15 minutes of fame) with a press conference and sitting next to Allred's ugly mug makes me have little if any empathy for this woman.

She never told anyone including any of her friend the specifics until now?


She's been unemployed for a couple of years.


Its it that she needs the money, or is she racist against black conservatives?

OMFG why does gloria allred hold a news conference for EVERY FCKING THING?! sorry for shouting but got damn i am sick of this woman... remember how if you had johnnie cochran as your lawyer you were pretty much admitting guilt (but always proven innocent)? now it's like as long as you hired gloria allred, you're main motive is $$$$$ and credibility is close to nil....

She was a "major MILF", but Herman Cain is finally done.
Herman Cain is an Idiot, and the utter joke that is "Herman Cain" and his so called "campaign" is done, so today is an awesome day for America, things are bad enough with the likes of a stupid hateful bigot. Judge for yourself

IDK attractive woman meets a man in a hotel lobby for ****tails and then dinner all to talk about a job and he makes a move and she says no and he stops. I don't see anything wrong with it - I'm sure she flirted with him - I don't think he should have grabbed her if that's true ...
