New Details Contradict Cain's Account

Herman Cain flatly denies that he made an unwanted sexual advance toward a female employee at a work event, but multiple sources tell Politico "there were urgent discussions of the woman's accusations at top levels of the National Restaurant Association within hours of when the incident was alleged to have occurred."

The new details "put the woman's account even more sharply at odds with Cain's emphatic insistence in news media interviews this week that nothing inappropriate happened between the two."

The woman in question "told two people directly at the time that Cain made a sexual overture to her at one of the group's events... She was livid and lodged a verbal complaint with an NRA board member that same night."

Meanwhile, the New York Times reports Cain's wife will no longer do an interview with Fox News tomorrow night as previously planned.
