GOP presidential contender Herman Cain refused to answer further questions about sexual harassment claims after a debate Saturday.
When a reporter from The Washington Post attempted to ask Cain about the allegations, which stem from his tenure at the National Restaurant Association, the candidate cut him off, saying "don’t even go there."
"Where's my chief of staff? Please send him the journalistic code of ethics," Cain added when pressed to comment on the harassment allegations.
Cain continued to blast the media’s coverage of the allegations.
"If I were running this campaign the way the pundits thought I ought to be running this campaign, I would have dropped out in August," said Cain to reporters.
