Cain accuser says son encouraged her to come forward

"He said ‘Mom,’ —he's thirteen, he said “mom, I think you need to tell on him.' And that's out of the mouth of a thirteen-year old, so that confirmed it for me. If my son is saying it, I want to be the role model for him," said Sharon Bialek on CNN's "American Morning" Tuesday.

She told CNN that although she has had financial difficulties, she did not receive payment for publicizing her story.

"Like millions of other people out there, you know I'm struggling and I could have actually sold my story, but I didn't," Bialek added.

She said she chose to speak in public in the hopes that Cain would admit to her allegations.

Bialek appeared on numerous morning shows Tuesday as well as CNN's "Pierce Morgan Tonight" on Monday sharing her allegations that Cain sexually harassed her in 1997.

She is the only woman to speak publicly regarding accusations against Cain since reports surfaced last week that the National Restaurant Association had settled claims with two former employees who had alleged sexually inappropriate behavior from Cain when he was president of the trade group.

Cain denied Bialek's account and has scheduled a press conference for this afternoon to address the issue.
