Trending:NBC confirms Cain Accuser Received Cash Settlement From National Restaurant Associaton

Herman Cain and Michelle Bachman

NBC News reports  that at least one woman who accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment received a cash settlement from the group he headed at the time; Cain denies knowledge of any settlement.

Cain denied the allegations, saying on FOX this morning he was “falsely accused.” “I have never sexually harassed anyone, anyone,” he said, “and absolutely, these are false accusations.”

Despite being the chief executive officer of the National Restaurant Association, he said he was unaware of any settlement with the accusers, though he didn’t deny it.

“If the restaurant association did a settlement, I wasn’t even aware of it,” he claimed, “and I hope it wasn’t for much. If there was a settlement, it was handled by some of the other officers at the restaurant association.”
