New accusation of sexual misconduct against Cain

9:16 pm on 8 November 2011

A fourth woman has now accused US Republic presidential hopeful Herman Cain of sexual harrassment.

Sharon Bialek told a news conference Mr Cain had groped her when she asked for his help in finding work in the 1990s.

Ms Bialek says she wants Mr Cain to admit his guilt and "make this right".

The BBC says while she is the first of the four women to accuse Mr Cain of sexually inappropriate behaviour in such a public manner.

Mr Cain's campaign team says the accusations are completely false.
