(Newser) – Yet another woman—this would be the fourth so far—is coming forward to accuse Herman Cain of sexual harassment, and she’s hired high-profile lawyer Gloria Allred to help her do it. The new accuser will appear with Allred at a press conference this afternoon, Radar Online reports. This woman, who will be the first to go public, says Cain harassed her when she went to him for help with an employment issue at the National Restaurant Association.

For the uninitiated, Allred is fairly famous, USA Today notes, citing a New York Times article that described her as, “a feminist avenging crusader or a deluxe ambulance chaser catching a ride on the latest tabloid scandal.” (Click here for more on Allred and her mind-boggling list of clientele, or here for more on Cain's woes.)
