Herman Cain has denied a report alleging that he sexually harassed women during his time as head of the National Restaurant Association.
Politico released a story Sunday evening, noting that at least two female employees made complaints about Cain.
In a statement given to the Associated Press, Cain's campaign labeled the Politico report as "dredging up thinly sourced allegations" from his tenure at the trade group. Spokesman J.D. Gordon told the AP that the claims include "unsubstantiated personal attacks", adding that the press is "casting aspersions on his character and spreading rumors that never stood up to the facts."
Cain's camp entered Sunday riding an Iowa high. A key Des Moines Register poll unveiled on Saturday shows the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza in a virtual tie with rival Mitt Romney for the lead in the GOP 2012 primary.
