AP: Cain Doesn't Remember Specific Allegations

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain says he doesn't remember the specific allegations of sexual harassment that were made against him in the 1990s.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Cain was asked if he was unaware of the specific allegations and he responded "some of them." Then when pressed, he said he wasn't aware of any of the allegations. He told The AP: "That was 12 years ago. So no, I don't remember."

Cain has denied sexually harassing anyone while he was head of the National Restaurant Association. He says the allegations are surfacing now as part of a "witch hunt."

The former pizza company executive was responding to a Politico report that said the trade group gave financial settlements to at least two female employees who had accused Cain of inappropriate sexual behavior. Cain says he doesn't know whether the association provided any such settlements.

The trade group has declined to comment.

    If you can't remember how much money was paid out to keep someone quiet about a sexual allegation, you might be out of touch with reality. Just saying. This guy is not going to win an election, because every female voter will see that creepy smile commercial in light of these allegations now.

    Sarah Palin is trash but she is just cute. Glen Rice made a good choice because she looks classy and clean. Women always have a way of messing a good man up! That woman wanted Cain just as much as he wanted her. She is just a pretty piece of trash with make-up on. She said that he put her head in his lap. I bet she didnt fight him on it at all. How did he now she had a boy friend unless they talked about this stuff. That woman knew she was going to be with him when she went to the hotel. If it was someone like snake oil it would never have made the news.

    Herman Cain is the man. It is a shame so many reporters have been assigned to this witch hunt but I never saw any mainstream media outlet look into Obama's early relationships with terrorist, Bill Ayers. Not a peep about it, but by God lets dig into these unsubstantiated claims about a conservative.

    I'm voting for Cain. I don't trust a man that don't like women.

    We we need a secret panel to see who threw Cain under the GoP bus! Someone else needs to check again to see if maybe another canidate is still in the GoP klown car - Please say this is not all!

    Those who are gaffing Cain are the same ones who thought Bill Clinton shouldn't be impeached. It's called double standards. Until these women come forward so they can be vetted as Cain is being vetted, then I will say the charges are just a bunch of junk!

    Just when Herman thought he had it in the Pizza Bag...KAPOWEEEEEE.....another victim shows up. The GOP Clown Show just keeps on giving.

    Cain is making even Sarah Palin look well informed. China has had nukes for over 50 years and he was not aware of that. His brain is stuck between 999 and 666.

    First there was one, then two, now a third one..., Cain is beginning to look like the Tiger Woods of the Republican party.

    It won't be sexual harassment cases which end Herman Cain's campaign. Not knowing China has had nuclear weapons for 30 years...is unforgivab­le...even on the RIGHT. Palin even knows this.....I guess.
