Gloria Cain, Wife of Herman Cain, Defends Candidate From Sexual Harassment Claims

by at . Comments

Herman Cain's wife, Gloria Cain, says the claims of sexual harassment against the GOP presidential candidate simply don't ring true because that's not who he is.

The Georgina businessman "totally respects women," according to his wife, who adds, "he would have to have a split personality to do the things that were said."

In an interview to be aired Monday during Greta Van Susteren's Fox News show On the Record, Gloria Cain said she can't believe the claims against her spouse:

Cain is accused of harassing women - Karen Kraushaar, Sharon Bialek and two others - when he was head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.

Gloria Cain said of those allegations:

"To hear such graphic allegations and know that would have been something that was totally disrespectful of her as a woman, I know that's not the person he is."

Cain's wife of 43 years is often described as "gentle" and "the nicest woman you'll ever meet." The two were married in 1968, and have two adult children.

Herman Cain, who has risen to the top of some national polls in the race for the Republican nomination, has denied wrongdoing in the last couple of weeks.

His unfocused responses to the claims, along with joking about Anita Hill, have made it tough for him to move forward with his White House bid, however.

Will the allegations against Cain derail his campaign?
