Cain Camp Accuses Perry Campaign of Leaking Sexual Harassment Claims

From Fox News:
Herman Cain's top aide accused Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s camp of leaking stories to the media about sexual harassment allegations from the 1990s that have rocked the former pizza company executive’s presidential campaign.

Cain has been grappling with the allegations since Politico first reported Sunday night that at least two women who worked for the National Restaurant Association when Cain was the head had received financial settlements after they complained about his behavior.

The Cain campaign points to longtime GOP consultant Curt Anderson, who worked for Cain's failed 2004 U.S. Senate bid and was debriefed on the harassment allegations by Cain himself. Anderson now works for Perry.

And Chris Wilson, a former pollster for the restaurant association, said Wednesday he witnessed Cain's alleged inappropriate behavior. He's now involved with a pro-Perry super political action committee.

Both men deny leaking the story and the Perry aides says the first they learned about it was this week in the press.

But Cain's team isn't buying it and demands an apology.
