ATLANTA — Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is vowing to “set the record straight” at a news conference one day after a fourth woman — and the first to reveal her identity — accused him of inappropriate sexual behavior a decade ago, the latest in a string of claims that have rocked his presidential campaign.

“There is not an ounce of truth to all these allegations” and the graphic account from Sharon Bialek is “totally fabricated,” the Georgia businessman told late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel.

Bialek stood by her accusation when asked about it this morning in the wake of Cain’s denial, saying in a nationally broadcast interview that she had “nothing to gain” by coming forward. She said “it’s not about me. I’m not running for president.”

Cain planned to address the latest furor in more detail this afternoon in Phoenix as he seeks to stem the fallout of a controversy stretching into its second week.
