Cain accuser says her son encouraged her "to tell on him"

The only woman to so far come forward and publicly accuse Herman Cain of sexual harassment did so in part with her 13-year-old son's encouragement, she said Tuesday on CNN.

"He said, 'Mom, I think you need to do the right thing. I think you need to tell on him," Sharon Bialek said on CNN's "American Morning." "That confirmed it for me. If my son is saying it, I want to be the role model for him and other kids growing up."

Bialek alleges Cain groped her following a dinner in 1997. Cain is expected to address her claims in a news conference Tuesday afternoon, according to his campaign.

    You have to understand that we can't let a woman like Sharon Blalek just come out and besmirch the name of our belove Herbert Cain, right ?! That would be totally unacceptable.

    I can tell I'm a guy. I can't change my scented oil stinky thing without getting it all over my hands. I shoulda had the boss do it before she left this morning. Now my hands smell like STRONG apple cinnamon. And it won't wash off, even with dish detergent. Oh well, it'll calm down in a couple of hours. Powder won't come near me now. Smart cat!
