GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain held a news conference in Arizona responding to allegations of sexual harassment made on Monday by Sharon Bialek.
Cain said that he did not recognize nor remember Ms. Bialek, and denied the alleged incident occurred. He said he'd be willing to take a lie detector test to prove that he is telling the truth.
On the subject of whether he'd withdraw from the race for the GOP nomination because of the allegations, Cain said "Ain't gonna happen."
Bialek is the fourth woman to allege harassment, but she is the first woman to publicly make her identity and her experience known.
In a statement released today, Cain's Communications Director, J.D. Gordon, wrote: "After attacking Herman Cain through anonymous accusers for a week, his opponents have now convinced a woman with a long history of severe financial difficulties, including personal bankruptcy, to falsely accuse the Republican front runner of events occurring over a decade ago for which there is no record, nor even a complaint filed."
Ms. Bialek is represented by attorney Gloria Allred, who has been involved in numerous high-profile cases.
