HERMAN CAIN: DEFENDS CRACK ABOUT ANITA HILL
ATLANTA (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is not only facing allegations of sexual harassment, he is also defending himself against a joke he made about Anita Hill. Cain said Friday he was approached at a recent event by a supporter who said Hill was trying to get in touch with him. He said his response was: "Is she going to endorse me." Cain says the comment was "in no way intended to be an insult toward Anita Hill or anyone else." Hill was the woman who accused then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment. Four women have said Cain sexually harassed them when he led the National Restaurant Association more than a decade ago. Cain has denied any wrongdoing.
