Gloria Allred is a well known supporter of the Democratic Party, a feminist and has been involved in several high profile controversial cases in the past.
Whether or not there is substance to the latest allegation, remains to be seen. No doubt it will be a distraction, which will focus the nations media on Gloria Allred. For Gloria Alfred it is already a Mission Accomplished moment, after all the focus is back on sexual allegations.
Shortly after the story broke Allred released the following statement:
“A woman who alleges that she was sexually harassed by Presidential hopeful, Herman Cain, when she sought his help with an employment issue when he was President of the National Restaurant Association will hold a news conference with her Attorney, Gloria Allred on Monday, November 7th, at 1:30 p.m. (e.s.t.) at the Friars Club, 57 East 55th Street New York, NY 10022.
The woman is not one of the three women who have previously been reported to have alleged sexual harassment by Cain.

During the meeting she alleges that Cain put his hand under her skirt, reaching for her genitals. The incident happened in a car. She also alleges that Cain pushed her head toward his crotch. She alleges that she said, “Mr. Cain this is not what I came here for, you know I have a boyfriend”. She recalls him saying, “You want a job, right?.
According to Gloria Allred the woman told her then boyfriend and another person. Allred presented two sworn statements at the press conference.
Duing the press conference Sharon Bialek said, “I want you, Mr. Cain, to come clean. I implore you, make this right, ”
The Cain campaign said that the allegations are false and made the following statement:
“Just as the country finally begins to refocus on our crippling $15 trillion national debt and the unacceptably high unemployment rate, now activist celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred is bringing forth more false accusations against the character of Republican front-runner Herman Cain. 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.”

Cain refused to answer questions about the allegations, and said, “You see what I mean? I was gonna do something that my staff told me not to do and try to respond, okay? What I’m saying is this — we are getting back on message, end of story. Back on message. Read all of the other accounts. Read all of the other accounts where everything has been answered in the story. We’re getting back on message, okay?”
