The fourth Cain accuser has been the first to speak publicly to address her claims that republican hopeful Herman Cain sexually harassed her after she approached him for help.
Sharon Bialek, a single mother of one held a press conference Monday where she emotionally recounted a 1997 encounter with the former CEO of the National Restaurant Association when he allegedly made sexually suggestive advances toward her.
Bialek spoke candidly during the conference, where she was accompanied by renowned feminist attorney Gloria Allred.
"I really didn't want to be here today, but I want you, Mr Cain, to come clean. Just admit what you did. Admit you were inappropriate to people...and then move forward."
The Chicago resident then pleaded "Mr Cain, I implore you, make this right."
The alleged advances came as a shock to Bialek, who claims she approached the Tea Party favorite for help finding a new job.
Bialek claimed that when she questioned Cain about his advances, he responded by asking, "You want a job don't you?"
Allred also spoke at the press conference, expressing her disgust with Cain who she says "provided Sharon with a stimulus package of his own."
Cain's camp immediately denied the accusations stating, "All allegations of harassment against Mr. Cain are completely false."
Cain recently dismissed all of his accusers' claims as left wing racism, and is said to be confident that his campaign will not be affected.
