Report: New Cain Accuser to Hold Press Conference Today With Gloria Allred in NYC

News

"This may be the greatest threat to Cain going forward..."

Herman Cain's problems may be far from over -- at least when it comes to the scandal surrounding the decade-old sexual allegations that have been waged against him.

RadarOnline is reporting that "a new woman" is planning to break her silence at a news conference on Monday afternoon.

(Update: Watch video from the press conference, where the woman reveals the graphic allegations)

Radar also claims that this mystery woman will allegedly be accompanied by (i.e. potentially represented by) infamous attorney Gloria Allred.

The press conference is purportedly going to take place in New York City. Radar has more:

The woman, who will be the first to go public on Monday, sought Cain's help with an employment issue and was allegedly sexually harassed by him. Allred and her client will discuss, in detail, what she alleges occurred with Cain.

Politico's Alexander Burns says that this newest element could pose major problems for the GOP presidential contender. He writes:

This may be the greatest threat to Cain going forward: not that his opponents exploit the sexual harassment reports to bring him down but that this story line takes on the proportions of a celebrity scandal and overwhelms his campaign.

Over the weekend, Cain claimed that he would answer no more questions about the harassment allegations. He also blamed journalists, suggesting that those who continued to ask about the scandal were acting unethically. When Cain was asked if he planned to never answer questions again about the allegations, he answered affirmatively. “You got it,” he said.

If Radar's report is true, it looks like Cain may not be able to make good on that pledge.
