On Fox News just now, Republican front-runner Herman Cain denied that he had ever sexually harassed anyone, but admitted that he was accused of harassment while at the National Restaurant Association.

“It is totally baseless and totally false. Never have I ever committed any kind of sexual harassment,” he said. “But yes, I was falsely accused while I was at the National Restaurant Association.”

He added that he does not know that a settlement was paid out against the two complainants, and said “If more allegations come, I assure you that people will simply make them up.”

“The only other allegations will be trumped up allegations,” he said.

Cain added that he did not know about a report alleging improprieties in his campaign’s accounting and campaign finance disclosures.
