The witness in the newest sexual assault allegations against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is Dr. Victor Zuckerman. a pediatrician at Ruston Pediatric Associates. With his attorney, Gloria Allred, Dr. Zuckerman read from a prepared statement, saying he was coming forward because of Cain's denial that he knew Sharon Bialek.
Zuckerman says he dated Bialek in 1997 and that he attended the National Restaurant Association convention's final dinner with her, where he met Cain. According to Zuckerman, he was impressed with Cain and after Bialek lost her job, he suggested she go to Cain for help. Shortly afterward, he said Bialek told him she'd been "touched inappropriately" by Cain, but didn't want to discuss it further.
According to Zuckerman, Bialek waited to come forward because "like many women in the work place, she quietly endured what she felt was a sexual assault. However, now Mr. Cain is running for the most powerful position in the world, the public has a right to know this information."
