Cain faces press 5pm ET Tues. in Phoenix, AZ, over latest in sexual harassment flap.

Politico: GOP urges Cain to address accusations.

On ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Mon. night calls fourth accuser “a little surprise” showing up on TV.

Cain: “At least it wasn’t one of the many that have the first name ‘Anonymous’ — so now this one actually had a name and a face and we’re gonna see who it was and what it was, and tomorrow we’re gonna have a press conference.”

EARLIER: Campaign releases statement discrediting Chicago single mom accuser Sharon Bialek and her attorney.

“After attacking Herman Cain through anonymous accusers for a week, his opponents have now convinced a woman with a long history of severe financial difficulties, including personal bankruptcy, to falsely accuse the Republican frontrunner of events occurring over a decade ago for which there is no record, nor even a complaint filed.”

More: Chicago Tribune on Bialek’s history of financial troubles, legal squabbles.

Plus: Wash Post and USA Today on whether this will hurt his support.

In response to the allegations made today by Gloria Allred, Mr. Cain will conduct a press conference on Tuesday, November 8th at the Scottsdale Plaza in Phoenix, Arizona at 3:00 pm local time.

It is noteworthy that Gloria Allred is a celebrity lawyer who specializes in generating publicity for herself and her clients.

Ms. Allred is a high-profile Democrat Party donor and activist who has given over ten thousand dollars to liberal Democrats like Barack Obama, Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer.

The questions the media should be asking are who’s paying for Gloria Allred’s fee, how did Ms. Bialek get introduced to Ms. Allred, and was she paid to come forward with these false accusations or was she promised employment?
