WASHINGTON (AP) - Herman Cain's campaign manager Mark Block says the Republican presidential candidate -- quote -- "has never sexually harassed anybody. Period. End of story."
Block told MSNBC that he is not personally aware of any settlement dealing with Cain and sexual harassment.
He referred questions to the National Restaurant Association.
Cain was keeping his Washington campaign schedule Monday even as his team accused "inside the Beltway media" of attacking him with allegations that he sexually harassed two women while he was the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.
In a statement Sunday to The Associated Press, his campaign disputed a Politico report that said Cain had been accused of sexually suggestive behavior toward at least two female employees.
