Cain 'put his hand up my skirt'

Rachael Alexander in New York

Republican presidential contender Herman Cain reached under a woman's skirt and pushed her head toward his crotch, she claimed yesterday

Sharon Bialek said she met Cain in July 1997 in Washington to ask about getting her job back at the National Restaurant Association. At the time, Mr Cain was chief of a restaurant trade group. Ms Bialek claimed that when she asked Mr Cain what he was doing, he replied: "You want a job, right?"

Ms Bialek appeared with her lawyer Gloria Allred at a news conference in New York.

Mr Cain has played down previous allegations of sexual harassment as anonymous attacks. He now has a woman who has come forward to directly accuse him of improper behaviour. His campaign team instantly issued a denial.
