Accuser's lawyer: Cain strategy designed to 'crush women who come forward'

"He appears to be in my opinion at this point engaged in a take-no-prisoners, scorched earth policy, which appears designed to try to crush women who come forward," said Allred to CBS News.

Allred's client, Sharon Bialek, a former employee of a foundation associated with the National Restaurant Association, on Monday gave a detailed account of sexually inappropriate behavior she claims Cain engaged in while he headed organization in the 1990's.

Allred praised her client for having the courage to speak out in public about her claims against the GOP presidential hopeful.

Cain on Tuesday flatly denied the sexual harassment allegations against him and said he would “absolutely” be willing to take a lie detector test to prove his innocence.

"She hoped that by stepping forward Mr. Cain would acknowledged what he has done and then move forward, but she is very disappointed," added Allred.

Cain's campaign has been embroiled in controversy since reports surfaced last week of financial settlements made with two women at the restaurant association who has accused Cain of sexual harassment.

The controversy seemed to deepen for Cain as Karen Kraushaar, a spokeswoman for the Treasury Department, came forward Tuesday to confirm she had filed sexual harassment charges against the presidential candidate while they both worked for the National Restaurant Association.
