Video of the Day: 'You Want a Job, Right?'

For Herman Cain, it gets worse.

Just over a week after Politico initially reported that two women had accused him of sexual harassment while he headed the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, two more women have come forward with complaints. One of them, represented by defense attorney Gloria Allred, on Monday became the first to speak to press.

At a news conference in New York, Sharon Bialek alleged that Cain had reached up her skirt and pushed her head toward his crotch after she asked him to help her get a job at the association in 1997. Allred is renowned for staging high-profile news conferences like today's.

"I was very, very surprised and very shocked," Bialek said on Monday. "I said, 'What are you doing? You know I have a boyfriend -- this isn't what I came here for.' Mr. Cain said, 'You want a job, right?'" Bialek said Cain stopped his advance when she asked him to and took her back to her hotel.

The Cain campaign issued a denial calling Bialek's allegations "completely false."
