On Sunday, the candidate refused to comment on the allegations until he sees some evidence
Two women working at the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s while Herman Cain was at the helm, left their jobs at the trade group after complaining of "sexually suggestive behavior" by the Republican presidential candidate, Politico reports.

Multiple sources told Politico that the women received financial payments from the association and signed agreements not to discuss their departures.
Campaign spokesman J.D. Gordon said that Cain is "vaguely familiar" with the charges and has indicated to campaign officials that the restaurant group resolved the issue.
But Cain told Politico on Sunday that he had thousands of people working for him over the years and could not comment "until I see some facts or some concrete evidence."
His campaign issued a statement late Sunday evening portraying him as a victim of a smear campaign by "Inside the Beltway media." The statement, issued by Gordon, never directly denies the allegations but says the Politico report is based on "unsubstantiated personal attacks" and "rumors that never stood up to the facts."
