BREAKING NEWS: Fourth sexual harassment charge against Cain—This time explicit details

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that a fourth woman has come forward with sexual harassment charges against Herman Cain.  This time the charges are public and specific.  WSJ says:

Sharon Bialek, a former employee at the National Restaurant Association Education Foundation, became the first woman to publicly detail her accusations against Mr. Cain. She spoke at a press conference in Manhattan arranged by her lawyer, Gloria Allred, a prominent discrimination attorney…

Ms. Bialek alleged that Mr. Cain, then the head of the National Restaurant Association, which ran the foundation, had inappropriately touched her when she had gone to him for help finding a new job in 1997, shortly after she was laid off from the organization. She said she came to Washington at her boyfriend's suggestion, seeking Mr. Cain's help to get a new job.

Ms. Bialek said the two dined at an Italian restaurant, and afterwards, in his car, Mr. Cain put his hand up her skirt and pushed her head toward his genitals. She said that when she protested that she had a boyfriend, Mr. Cain asked her whether she wanted a job.
