Herman Cain Doesn’t Hold Back on Kimmel

There was speculation that amid the newest storm of sexual-harassment allegations (those of Sharon Bialek), Herman Cain might not show up for his scheduled appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Cain did, and he didn’t hold back. In a soundbite-rich interview, Cain addressed the allegations directly and even took a dig at accuser Sharon Bialek’s attorney, Gloria Allred. After Jimmy Kimmel asked if he would hire Allred as his own attorney, Cain said “I can’t think of anything that I would hire her to do!” Kimmel added some levity to the situation that will be less peachy for Cain when he speaks before a throng of reporters at a press conference on Tuesday, where Cain says they’ll take the allegations “head-on.”
