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.

She's baaaack    

If he tried to grab her genitals that would be quite a feat unless she had a penis. Women's genitalia is usually a little hard to just reach out and grab, if you get my drift.

And ... wouldn't you just know that Whoria Allred would be standing by her side. She only does whores, and now you have the story. She should have told that piece of work that the Dolly Parton look ain't workin' for her.

Herm's in big trouble now. Offering a job in exchange for a ******* and a vagina grab is a definite no-no.

So much for Herman Cain being seen as a "likable guy". He's toast just like that moron Texas Guv Rick Perry.

Elizabeth is a class act    

How in the world could this hurt him?

Americans seem to love their womanizing Presidents.

With his impressive list of accomplishments, this just makes him more human.

I think it is going to help him in the polls as people with even less than average intelligence will see right through this smear campaign.

It's laughable.

good as gold    

Since when is it a crime to hit on a someone? If they say "no" and you back off then no laws were broken. As far as her claim goes that he offered her a job for sex, I say "b.s." and tell her to "prove it" or you will get sued. By the way, whenever Gloria Allred gets involved I see a gold digger because she dont work for free.

Why doesn't the media investigate the three gay men from Chicago romantically linked to Obama who all ended up dead within a month of each other right before the last election? What about Obama's membership to Man's Country a gay bath house in Chicago?

Funny how none of this came out before he was leading in the polls. This has liberalism written all over it. Btw, how can she afford such an expensive lawyer?

Another stupid woman that gives us woman a bad name. It's been over 10 years. Maybe it did happen, but seriously shut the hell up now!!! Back then you were trying to get a job, what are you getting now for this brilliant timing? If you had a shred of decency or respect you would have done something about it back then if it's true. Please can we have an election that's based on issues instead of digging up dirt and mud slinging... so sick of it!!!! Whoever is behind this is nothing more than a political weasel...
