Cain 'totally respects women,' wife says

Herman Cain's wife said she doesn't believe the sexual harassment allegations against her husband because "he totally respects women."

Gloria Cain made the remarks in an interview to air Monday on Fox's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren."

"I know that's not the person he is. He totally respects women," Gloria Cain said.

Last week, during an appearance on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Cain said he still has the support of his wife.

"My own wife said that I wouldn't do anything as silly as what that lady was talking about, because she does know me," Cain said about one of the accusers, Sharon Bialek.

"I've been married for 43 years to the same woman and I'm proud of it."

At least four women have accused the GOP presidential hopeful of sexual harassment.

In a statement last week, Cain campaign spokesman J.D. Gordon said, "There have been a number of interesting revelations that the public has learned about these women over the past few days. We hope the court of public opinion will take this into consideration as these women continue to try and keep this story alive."

    I think Mr Cain just slipped on a patch of ice and grabbed that woman's head to brace himself. At least, that's what he told me to say. And he's paying me well to say it.

    In my expert opinion, these women are all pigs.

    So far it appears this way. Left with no options I'll probably be voting for him again.
