The Presidential hopeful just spoke at a news conference -- where he flatly denied Sharon Bialek's accusations ... that Cain reached for her genitals after a dinner meeting in D.C. back in 1997 and forced her head near his crotch.
Cain insisted, "I have never acted inappropriately with anyone, period" -- adding, "I don't even know who this woman [Sharon] is."
