After deftly navigating an appearance at the National Press Club hours after POLITICO reported that he was the subject of two sexual harassment complaints in the 1990s, Herman Cain kept the scandal alive on Monday night.Asked by PBS’s Judy Woodruff if he had ever invited a woman up to his hotel room, Cain replied “That I absolutely do not recall.”
But he again denied that he ever sexually harassed anyone during his business career — but acknowledged that what qualifies as harassment is in the eye of the beholder.
“In my opinion, no. But as you would imagine, it’s in the eye of the person who thinks that maybe I crossed the line,” he told Woodruff.
Cain explained why his campaign denied the report before walking it back, saying he knew that there was an “agreement” reached as a result of one of the complaints, but did not know whether it was a “settlement.”
