Herman Cain will directly confront Sharon Bialek's accusations against him in a press conference at 5pm ET this this evening. He previewed his approach to combating her story on Jimmy Kimmel's late night TV program last night:
This press conference came on at 10:30 and my wife did watch it and I called her immediately afterwards. As I was sitting there, I had a few of my staff members there with me, and I'm sitting here and they're watching me and they could see the steam coming out of my ears. And the feelings that you have when you know that all of this is totally fabricated and you go from anger then you go — you get disgusted, you try to control yourself to make sure you watch this thing all the way through it.
I was listening very closely and then when it was all over with, I said, well I know what we got to do because there's not an ounce of truth in all of these accusations and my team is putting this stuff together. that is why I'm willing to do a press conference tomorrow to set the record straight....
