News

"I'm thinking he would have to have a split personality to do the things that were said."

(The Blaze/AP) Herman Cain's wife says the claims of sexual harassment against the GOP presidential candidate don't ring true because he "totally respects women." Gloria Cain told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren in an interview that will air Monday night: "I'm thinking he would have to have a split personality to do the things that were said."

Gloria Cain said in the interview that she can't believe the claims that her husband harassed women when he led the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.

"You hear the graphic allegations and we know that would have been something that's totally disrespectful of her as a woman," she said. "And I know the type of person he is. He totally respects women."

Excerpts of the interview were released Sunday.

Four women have now accused Herman Cain of sexually harassing them when he led the National Restaurant Association. He has denied wrongdoing and has been trying to move forward in his presidential campaign.

Cain's wife of 43 years is often described as "gentle" and "the nicest woman you'll ever meet."

The two were married in 1968, have two adult children - a daughter, Melanie, and a son, Vincent - and grandchildren

POLITICO notes that the interview is Gloria Cain's first real public turn, and that Cain's former spokeswoman Ellen Carmichael said on Twitter that the interview marks "the first time I've heard Gloria Cain, even after working for Herman for more than a year."
